Going Grunge!

Believe it or not, I rarely take fashion tips from Anna Dello Russo. Her over-the-top style is one few of us can pull off, let alone aspire to. But when I saw her glamorous take on grunge during fashion week, I couldn’t help but take note…

Earlier that week, I had purchased a red rose patterned top so similar to this fabric that I was immediately inspired to pair it with my favorite moto boots and flannel accessories. What I love about the style is that, while it certainly takes its cue from the grunge era, it’s updated (as it should be) for a modern woman who wants to still feel feminine or glamorous.

A few weeks prior to that, I had also bookmarked the image below. I loved the idea of pairing the flannel from my jr. high days with a metallic or embellished skirt. Add some classic accessories, and ladylike silhouettes, and suddenly that flannel has a whole new life ahead of it.

As a Seattle girl, I sometimes cringe when I say where I’m from, and the immediate response is still, “oh, cool, grunge.” (Really people? That was so 1992.) But now, I’m embracing it head on and making it my own again. So I put together a little shopping list of grunge-inspired updates that will be making their way into my fall wardrobe…
