One of the timeless and always seems to be relevant inspirations in fashion and for dressing up is punk. I own quite few pieces of punk-inspired clothing that I’ve forever kept in my closet because I know those punk pieces won’t ever go out of style – I could always recycle and restyle them with different other pieces of new clothing and accessories and I get fresh chic new styles.

I was really excited when I found out about the Met’s spring 2013 Costume Institute exhibition, PUNK: Chaos to Couture.  I’m not a big fan of ‘DIY’ clothing and accessories which a big part of punk fashion, but I do respect and enjoy the liberty and mischievousness of it. I’ve been wearing my ‘punk’ styles lately. The cool spring weather in New York couldn’t be more perfect for the punk-inspired dressing since it’s all about layering.

I’ll be posting more punk-inspired looks in the next few days. Here’s my first one. it’s a look for going out party, I think this look is a great alternative for the night in the city. It’s fun, different, chic, and still sexy, which is important to me in my dressing :)

This look consists:

1. Vintage ascot ruffle ‘Victorian’ white lace top

2. Double-belted Dolce & Gabbana hot pink tartan plaid pleated ‘kilt’ skirt

3. Black leather motorcycle jacket

4. Lace-up Christian Louboutin platform heels

5. Kenzo bright floral-printed leather shoulder bag

I was googling around and stumbled upon this stamp that I actually had pinned on to my Pinterest awhile ago when it was just released along with other fashion stamps. Without realizing it, I styled my first punk look with a white lace victorian top with ruffle cuffs just like this on Vivienne Westwood fashion stamp. I guess I did something right! ;) I love that!

I love western-inspired style, actually, I must confess that I am a sucker for western clothes, both the original and the inspired ones. Western-inspired look is one of those looks that I enjoy exploring and play with a lot. My style is 90% sophisticated feminine and 10% playful masculine, my perfect balance.

I paired my monochromatic checkered shirt with a western fringe leather skirt. I left some of the shirt buttons undone and rolled up the sleeves for a sexy and effortless feel. I accessorized with a Radenroro pony bag in moss green and corset tasseled lace-up Louboutins.

Check out my post about another western-inspired look ‘Westernizashion‘.

Romanian tops are some of those fashion items with amazing style longevity. They never go out of style from decade to decade. I got my top from a lovely family member, I was so happy with the gift! She told me that one of her friends gave it to her in the 60s when she lived in Paris at the time. The top was hand-made AND hand-embroidered in Romania by her friend herself. What a treasure! Lucky me! I styled my Romanian top with my cut-off dark jeans, my gold Alaïa wedges, and a vintage crocheted flower plastic shopper bag. It’s a serious summertime!!
