Studio Brussel celebrated 40 years Punk this week in analogy to the Sex Pistols' record "Nevermind the bollocks, here's the Sex Pistols" that debuted in 1977. Of course Karolien and I couldn't let this opportunity slip to once again channel our inner punkrock attitude. Well allright, that attitude never is far away but what's more fun than play dress-up, amiright. 

I remember going to school during high-school dressed in a safety pin embellished red tartan skirt with fishnet tights. I can't remember what shoes I wore underneath though but I think (fear) those might have been my pink Converse All Stars. Another favorite combo was a plain black mini skirt with pink and black striped tights and an accordingly striped bardot top. My 17-year self wanted to be the Cheshire cat I suppose. That bardot top was totally not tolerated by the way at our school, so that once resulted in me getting picked out of class by the principal, getting preached at and having to add a gym top underneath.

Funny anecdote: Karolien and I were classmates since the 5th grade in high school but only became friends when we were both in college and went to Pukkelpop together. 

For my punk inspired outfit I time-traveled to 2004, put on some fishnet tights and combined it with my red tartan coat. Because I'm also totally in love with Debbie Harry I added my overknee boots, a quirky t-shirt and a thrifted leopard bandana I used as a shawl.
