I relate a lot to the graphic novel/movie Ghost World. Enid Coleslaw is my spirit animal. In my soul I am actually a 15 year old angst-ridden suburban teenager, dying my hair with manic panic and listening to records on repeat in my bedroom, bemoaning the fact that nobody gets me.
The life parallels and anecdotes I could draw - and will draw on this blog many times, i'm sure - from Ghost World are too numerous to tackle in one post. But today, it comes up because I am suddenly obsessed with the idea of wearing a cropped leather jacket and creepers with e v e r y t h i n g. skinny jeans, little dresses, trousers, you name it.
I know a lot of designers are picking up on the creeper trend right now, but I wanted the originals. The basics. The good stuff. I even went on the Hot Topic website to track down the real deal. Yeah, i went there. Because you gotta do what you gotta do. Besides, it's not like i'm some modern punk - it's obviously a 1977 original punk rock look.
I guarantee you these items will appear in outfit posts shortly. Until then, snatch up some of your own, and maybe some green hair dye while you're at it.
Finally found the perfect cropped faux-leather jacket, link below

& these ^ are en route, get ready
You should probably also cancel your plans tonight and re-watch Ghost World. Your inner teenager will thank you.
