Ball Chain Necklace | Fishnet Top | Pleated Skirt || Thrifted
Crossbody Bag || Hand-Me-Down
Smashing Pumpkins T-Shirt || Hot Topic
Doc Martens || Journey's
Months ago, I had yearned for this Smashing Pumpkins shirt, but the issue of fast fashion was weighing on me. Uhh, but the deep rich colors and the graphic borrowed from their third album beckoned to me. So, I went back to the same exact Hot Topic and it was evidently gone. Months later, I'm helping my sister pick out a band tee for her brother-in-law and that's when I spot the desired shirt high up on the wall. A pink haired employee informed me that it was the last shirt so I saw that as a sign. Plus, Hot Topic band t-shirts always hold up extremely well. If you've never checked out the band I recommend listening to "Disarm" and "Tonight, Tonight".
This pleated skirt and doc marten combo was inspired by a scruffy dude that was walking around Ren Faire. He wore his black docs with a traditional kilt and I thought it was such a look. The midi length of my skirt hits at an awkward spot, but I like the rebellious nature of it.
