A “grungy” look is an extension of a rock-inspired look, right??
I’ve often mentioned that – for quite a few years now – my favourite looks will tend to have a somewhat rockerish edge to them; but enjoying a nineties influence is still relatively new for me!!
This started out to be a pretty straightforward jeans and sweater outfit, with my leather moto jacket thrown on for some extra warmth…we’ve had some rather chilly days here in Vancouver again lately!! And because I wanted to show off this fun, rhinestone-embellished skull pendant that my hubby surprised me with just the evening before, I had to add it to the mix!! (Seriously – is it wrong to think that death’s head jewellery is adorable?! ‘Cause I have a real soft spot for it!!)
Somehow though, my finished look just didn’t seem to be quite “finished” yet; what could I add to give a little extra interest? My first thought was my leather beanie (definitely my go-to edge-ifier of late) but then I remembered this maroon and yellow shirt hanging in my closet; the perfect piece for some extra colour and pattern!! Because it was too snug to layer over my sweater, I tied it around my waist…
And voila!! My personal nod to the era of grunge bands!!
