When I was in high school, I was soooooo punk rock. Also known as “a poser.” LOL. That’s just the way it goes. Along with going to local punk shows, being rebellious, wearing plaid and Doc Martens, came calling everyone else a poser. It’s quite funny actually.
Really I just enjoyed some classic & more modern punk music, and going to shows to let out some energy in a mosh-pit… I very much enjoyed the punk style of plaids, leather, spikes, chains, patches, etc. I expressed myself through punk style during my last few years of school and then let it fade away. However I still love the style and I still love those same punk bands I loved years ago. Although I never got into the politics of the punk scene, it didn’t stop me from enjoying bands like the Ramones, Sex Pistols, the Buzzcocks, Dead Kennedys, Vice Squad, the Adicts, Rancid, Operation Ivy, and the Dropkick Murphys.
I was recently selling some clothes at Wasteland when I spotted what appeared to be a sweet ass vintage band t-shirt. I dropped everything I was doing to take a peek at this shirt that had just hit the sales floor…… A vintage Dead Kennedy’s t-shirt, AND it smelled good. SCORE! Not only do I adore the dark, eerie and rambunctious sound of the Dead Kennedy’s, but here I found a perfectly softened, old school vintage t-shirt with their political propaganda inked all over it.
Completing my grungy punk style is the same leather bondage belt I rocked about a decade ago, a subtle plaid print on my jeans and of course a flannel knotted around the waist. As you all know, I almost always have to add in some glamour to whatever style I’m rockin, so in comes the teased hair, the shiny accessories and my fringed bag. The diamond shaped bangle is by Vinca, an awesome jewelry company based here in the USA. It is such a cool bracelet, made of laser cut wood!
Even though I have grown out of wearing the every day “punk rock” style, there will always be a little punk rock edge to me, I’ve just added in some glamour.
