I know it's hard to believe that I could have once looked like that, but alas, my Pretties, it is true...and I rocked it like the best of them. I'll have to dig out an old photo or two and show you the dramatic change from then to now.
Anyway, you can imagine my delight over the Steampunk or Neo-Victorianism look, which is the amalgamation of Victorian aesthetic principles with modern sensibilities and technologies.
Steampunk fashion has no set guidelines and is based upon an individual's personality, but tends to mesh punk, goth and industrial styles as filtered through the Victorian era.
For those of you in need of more details, this look in fashion may include mohawks, piercings, corsets, tattered petticoats, and any other number of pieces from the aforementioned factions or style periods.
Attempting to adopt a Steampunk aesthetic in fashion or home decor isn't hard with the following objects I've picked out from some Etsy members who do it best.
Here's where you can grab these goodies...
