You wouldn’t notice from most of my looks, but I used to be a punk :-D safetypins through my ears, plaid pants with rips, zippers, studs, suspenders, fishnets, doc martens, buttons etc, I’ve done em all. I even used to have short, bright red hair! And I’ve had the Republica look as well, my own dark bob with red streaks. I think that once one exits puberty, one most evolve both on a personal level, and a stylistic level. I always feel a bit sorry for people who seem to be caught in their own little world with their own way of dressing. Everyone deserves a style of his own, but you shouldn’t limit yourself too much, or you are going to miss out on so many chances and so much fun!
But that’s just me talking. I’m very fickle, so while I stand by my opinion as stated above, I also like people who don’t give a fuck about what is expected of them and just go about their own way, doing what pleases them. Even if that entails dressing like a 15 year old for the rest of their lives :)
And even though I’m not a hardcore punk anymore, I still like to listen to badass music, and I still love to incorporate small punk elements into my outfits.
Plaid pants will always be sick! :-D
