If you had to be transported to one era, and one specific type of fashion in that era, what era would you choose?
My answer might come as a surprise, since it is a complete departure from my own fashion tastes. But that complete 180 is exactly why I'd want to go. I'd love to be in the 90's punk scene.
I've actually dreamt about this style since high school. I often had various fantasy and characters running through my head, and one of them was an alternate-universe Charlotte, one who chopped hair own hair, dyed it purple, got piercings and tattoos, and wore ripped jeans, red lipstick, heavy jewelry and Doc Martens. (Also, this alternate me was a wonderful piano player. I don't know why that was part the story, but there is it.) I saw a pair of silver Doc Martens in a thrift store years ago, but passed them up; I'm still mourning that loss.
This era was within my lifetime. I was a little young for the 90s, but the styles easily carried into the 2000s. I'm far too timid to partake in the lifestyle that goes along with this fashion; if I could have all of the apparence of a bad attitude, without actually having one, I'd be much more comfortable with it.
The part of me that wants to get lost in a giant dress/shirt and a pair of big, clunky boots lives on. Someday, maybe, I could do a toned-down version of a punk rocker, like the picture above.
What era is your fashion dream?
