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!

So I posted this outfit on Pose a while ago, on March 27th. I wore it to someone’s lovely birthday dinner at Le Colonial in the city. I love this place, it’s Vietnamese/French, the food and cocktails are amazing and the decor and ambiance are superb! Adorbs! Can’t wait to go back!

Now, let’s talk about this outfit, shall we?

The peplum top is the ‘Arjuna‘ top (in mint/white) by Radenroro (yes, I designed it (; ). I teamed it up with skinny white pants and a pair of mirrored silver leather wedges. I accessorized the outfit with the Radenroro jet black pony patent leather pocketbook as a clutch. Do you like the color combo mint, white, and black?

I was on a mission to wear a maxi skirt in a new fresh way – the same old ‘bohemian’ approach kind of bores me, I’ve seen it too long. I’m all about sophistication, The Radenroro ‘Neneng‘ camisole balances the bold floral maxi skirt, forget about its white neutral color, the voluminousness of it creates the perfect proportion to the silhouette of this outfit. I’d say I think I succ-chic-fully completed my mission! Would you?
