As previously mentioned, I am going to New York City for the first time in a couple months! Whenever I am bored or apathetic (a little too often), I think about neat outfits to wear because my friends and I made a pact that we have to look our absolute best at all times during our stay in the city. A worthwhile and rewarding challenge, it seems. Through this pursuit of 'cool', I have come up with what might be my 'favourite outfit ever'. Yes, ever. For now, at least. It consists of my old patchy punk jacket, which just so happens to be my favourite jacket of all time. I bought the jacket in a discount store 5 years ago and all the patches myself. The jacket itself should be shredded to bits from wear and tear, but the fabric has been worn to softness instead. Then there is my prom dress, worn only once before, last June. The look is finished off by regular dark tights, cashmere legwarmers that used to be the arms of a sweater that I cut up and my favourite green leather pixie boots. Or elf boots. Or Robin Hood boots, whatever strikes your fancy.
I can't wait to wear this in fabulous NYC. Can you say Sartorialist?
Band patches: KMFDM, Bad Religion, Nirvana, Operation Ivy and Adam + the Ants. I would kill for a Minor Threat patch.
