Slightly Steampunk

I have a hard time defining steampunk fashion. For me, I think it boils down to anachronism. I look for old-timey styles, fabrics, and accessories worn in a modern way.


Jacket, NY & Co. Dress, vintage, thrifted, and shortened. Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Miz Mooz. Barette, The Crafty Chemist.

Fellow blogger Audi does steampunk well and even sells accessories (hats, belts, and accessories) on Etsy. I love how she slips a harness, a corset, a duster, a bustle, or a mini-top hat into her everyday ensembles. (Perhaps the machine gun bikini isn’t office friendly, but it’s a hell of a costume.)

Me too - swooning over those gorgeous green boots.

It's interesting the vintage-modern mix in this outfit. It feels like one of my mom old pics, but with a lovely twist of color my mom never dared to wear. Maybe someday I'll do!

I absolutely love this! I would have never thought to put any of this together, yet it works so well. I love the colors, the textures, the new mixed with the old...all of it! Those boots, though, are killer!

I want those boots so badly, but you have to have thin legs! And I don't have thin legs. :( Sad. Those look so good on you! Nice outfit!!

I was just trying to explain steampunk to my boyfriend and my mom the other day - it isn't easy. But those boots are fab!

I cannot even believe how beautiful those boots are. You look so great. :)

I was wondering if we'd ever see you do a steampunk look! This looks great -- it's definitely got some steampunk elements but is still totally you.
