Match Made in Seven - Punk

Welcome to the monthly edition of  Match made in Seven! We are an international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. The theme of this month is chosen by Nancy and is Punk. Also take a look at the other bloggers how they have interpreted the theme this month.

I have interpreted this for you dear reader of my blog as outfits inspired a little bit  by Punk.  Honestly, I really don't think I could do the real deal justice. I know for sure Nancy will come up with a superb outfit as I have met her and can just see her rocking her Punk, if that could be a saying, haha.  

For me I give you 4 outfits from my wardrobe, without spending money or ripping anything.  I set myself those rules. Can you blame me!

Outfit 1

Firstly I took my buffalo print shirt, which many of us have in our closets, and added a black skirt, unripped and unadorned with chains.

For my age I am avoiding chockers as they emphasise neck wrinkles, so I used a short leather thong necklace as a nod to the punk chocker.  

outfit 2

Well this might be more like it, or it's black swan version of  swan lake.  I found a prom dress of one of my daughters and thought that if I could play at  rocking  a look like Nancy maybe this would be one I'd wear.

Outfit 3

Leaving the buffalo print behind, see above literally, I moved on to plaid trousers which is somewhat on trend and you may have in your wardrobe.  I would be very comfortable wearing this as an outfit using the punk era as a mini influence. 

I added a black blouse with metallic features in lieu of chains and used a long pendant necklace in black and metal. 

The trousers are current and from  Marks and Spencer.

I let the wind punk up my hair a bit. 

Outfit 4

As I came downstairs from dressing in outfit 4 I noticed these clodhoppers in the hall.  
Not mine and with a bad back I really regretted even trying them.  (Sorry hub forgot to take photos so I had to screen shot from a video.)  Both and I Mia seem alarmed. 

Ah, that's better, back in my boots now. Sensible, dependable, bendable boots.    My buffalo made an appearance again with black jeans, unripped, and more metalic accessories.

I used a necklace that is rather pointy as a nod to the pointy metalic chokers punks wore and my belt has large metallic features.

I hope that I have represented some replicable and relatable outfits that don't shout punk but do yell style. 

And here's the movie version

  1. I actually really like it! Very Vivienne Westwood! xx

  2. Wow, not just one punk look, but FOUR!!! That's amazing! I think my favorite is the last one, the red plaid blouse belted over the black skinny jeans. I think you did a great job!


  3. Aaahhhhh that dress! Fan-tas-tic! Wow, that is so beautiful! Love it! And isn t this the fun thing about themes. We all could wear a custume but it has to stay close to who we are, and then we create some surprising outfits!

  4. So much fun to see you dressed up in 4 styles! I totally love your 2 look! That skirt! I need one too!

  5. You wear that shirt so well in all the outfits, I love the shirt knotted over the tulle dress, so fun and unexpected! :)

    Thank you so much for joining the #weekdayWearLinkUp earlier :) Hope that your week is going well :)

  6. So fun Anna and I think you rock that skirt of your daughters! It looks so cool on you!

  7. You did represent the punk look very well. My favorite is the prom dress one!

  8. 10 out of 10 for your daughters prom dress mixed with your buffalo shirt. Such a fun outfit. Well done. Love - Jill stylishatsixty

  9. Love all four of these stylings, Anna! I am so partial to red plaid right now and love your plaid shirt! That tulle skirt is so fun! I'm so happy to meet you as part of our "Match Made in Seven."

  10. Punk is not an easy theme to pull off but I think you've done a fab job! I do love the second outfit – that is rocking!!

  11. Anna,
    I had to laugh as I read your post! I had the same dilemma. I ended up looking like a biker! Haha! Oh, well fun anyway.

    You did an amazing job channeling punk! The prom dress was perfect! But, for real life, I like the plaid pants and wearing the buffalo plaid like a tunic. You nailed those!

    Have a wonderful weekend.
    xx Darlene

  12. Enjoyed your daughters prom dress with the plaid gathered over the back. If you have any neutral plaid fabric a person can create a gaitor like piece to top their practical footwear . With folds / large safety pins equal number ion each side as a garnish possibly with a small fashion jewelry pin in hematite . If you wore black on black the safety pins & hematite would pop out. I once used sharpies ink pens ( alcohol markers to die the safety dark shiny black ) created her own punk look because the pin colour was dark . Thrift store for black denims I further distressed & goodwill for an old beat up wedding dress bucket died in olive green & black . Used up all the crinoline , lace , stays and trim . A total of $5.00 for two boxes of dye colouring and $3.99 for the dress. When it was no longer cool and on trend I repurposed the puppy . For me I went couture and deconstructed with bone coloured jewelry from India . Wore it to see the best exotic marigold hotel . We all enjoyed our own costume party plus Indian dinner out ,

  13. Some fun outfuts, love no. 2!
    Hugs, Mary x.

  14. Love the tartan, I've never worn it but have always been tempted! Nice post Anna. Jacqui Mummabstylish

  15. This is fun - love the black Swan version! As someone else said, you're looking very Vivienne Westwood. Thanks for joining #WowOnWednesday!

  16. I love the prom dress and tartan..good job girl.

  17. Oh wow, look at you go. Loving those punk inspired looks. You were totally rocking the prom dress and tied shirt. But my fav outfit has got to be number three. It looks so current. Thank you for joining us for the #dreamteam :-)

  18. I love all four outfits Anna, especially the tiered skirt and tartan trousers. This theme has made me want to wear more tartan so now I'm frequently searching on eBay for bargains - I just bought a jacket for £5 so fingers crossed it fits!
