Chained and Studded

Monday, March 8th, 2010

My sister has this old studded belt that has a broken buckle. She hasn’t been using it for the longest time but I don’t know why she held on to it till now. Back then I hated it, and I thought it was horrible because the only people who wear them in Vancouver are Rockers, Punk, Emos, and I thought they are ridiculous… AND then BALMAIN came up with these concept of ROCK&ROLL-CHIC, then studs and spikes went flying everywhere in the Fashion scene.

Since the buckle no longer works, I started plucking the studs piece by piece, then putting them into my Tshirts. Then just last night I thought I’d decorate my flush-blazer with these leather belt… they are being held by safety pins on both ends, and I also added my chain necklace.

    Although I think this is a neat idea I’m pretty turned off by you saying “Back then I hated it, and I thought it was horrible because the only people who wear them in Vancouver are Rockers, Punk, Emos, and I thought they are ridiculous…”. It seems like the only reason you like the look is because Balmain popularized it… punk and rock have been 2 big influences in the fashion industry long before Balmain so to think about styles that way sounds out right ridiculous. Coming from a so called “Fashionisto” even if you were just a child at the time makes me think less of your blog.

    @Jason W.,

    It was an honest statement, I didn’t like it — I didn’t like how the whole ‘punk’ scene incorporate them to their style — it usually tends to come off messy, too much, and too loud (for my own personal taste).

    “It seems like the only reason you like the look is because Balmain popularized it…”
    NO, that’s not the only reason. I became a fan of the trend because I learned how to neatly incorporate it to an outfit — and Balmain showed me that. Balmain did NOT JUST popularize the trend, more like they re-presented it in a whole different way; visually pleasing and did it in a classy and clean manner.

    “punk and rock have been 2 big influences in the fashion industry long before Balmain so to think about styles that way sounds out right ridiculous.”
    Just because they’ve been around longer, it doesn’t mean I should favor them… I believe everyone has their own preferences. I am not dethroning their contribution to the fashion industry — eg. Vivienne WestWood made homeless ppl her inspiration for one of her collections — I think the idea and the execution were brilliant BUT that doesnt mean I should like where the inspirations come from as well (DISCLAIMER: not that I hate homeless ppl.)

    “Coming from a so called “Fashionisto” even if you were just a child at the time makes me think less of your blog.”
    I am very sorry you feel that way, but if such little argument was my gauge wether I like a particular blog or not, my bookmark would be empty. However, it’s your own opinion and perogative, but I don’t think saying such statement makes me less of a fashion blogger. — thank you for your comment.
