Unfortunately none of my steampunk fashion projects have made much headway, so I threw together a mismatch of clothes that one friend dubbed "more punk than steam." I have to agree:
|the outfit: a plain white blouse, the maroon vest I discussed in this post (without the hoped-for alterations), black shorts from Express, ripped-up fishnets, almost knee-high boots, a lace glove from Claire's, an off-white and silver scarf from a past trip to France, my pocketwatch, and a steampunk necklace made from a copper-colored chain and a variety of industrial charms|
|My sister Leigh (right) and I|
- Some sort of gears or clockwork parts to the vest
- Headgear. I am leaning towards a decent bowler hat.
- Eyewear. The vote among my friends was a monocle. I almost filched a pair of eyeglasses that my little sister left in my car just to fulfill the eyewear requirement.
- A cane.
- A real pair of breeches. Preferably tweed.
What do you think?
