Vamp It Up

The alternative blog for cruelty free skincare, veggie food and alt/geek culture

This look is inspired by the kind of everyday soft punk look from the mid to late 70’s – before the media and Malcom McLaren labelled it punk: A knitted mesh jumper, tartan trousers, a dog collar and not forgetting DM’s of course.

    Ooooh, loving the tartan togs. I actually have ‘something in tartan’ written on my current wish list. I think these would fit the bill nicely. I want some DM style boots too – do you find them heavy at all? That’s my only worry with this type of boot.
    Love Vicky

      Well tartan jeans are so easy to wear with stuff. DM’s feel heavy when you pick them up but once they’re on and laced tightly, you don’t notice, plus the bouncy rubber sole makes them un-clunky to walk in x

      Cheers chick! It’s my my can’t be arsed, kick-ass, comfy as hell daytime look. The jeans are bothering me though, they look a little too generic. Too tight for rips, so safety pins or a few layered key chains perhaps….

      Me too! I tried on some from Mango but the stripes didn’t exactly suit my curvy bum, haha! Then I saw these in Primark’s window.
