UK Riot Girl

Bear with me y'all. Flickr erased all my photos last night - putting them back takes time!

SHE'S A REBEL, SHE'S A SAINT. The strange title is from my old screen name in junior high. Yes, once upon a time Angie had her punk/goth experimentation phases. I googled this and apparently "Riot grrrl" is an underground feminist punk movement based in the Pacific Northwest - who knew? My British friend Ben approved of my interpretation of a "London juvenile misfit" outfit: success. Yeah, I felt 5x more badass stomping around campus last Thursday (9/22) in this get-up. As I recall, it was cold and moody most of the day, but here comes the sun right when we were shooting in McMillan courtyard.

PLAID + LEATHER JACKET + SUSPENDERS DOWN is the combo here. Wearing suspenders the cool and hip way makes my tush look really funny from behind but it was worth the extra deciliter of attitude. Add the little plaid cropped jacket I scored from Kileen's blog sale for only $5. Turned it inside out to match my royal blue tee and despite all the tags sticking out, it fit in perfectly with the misfit them. Finished off with my old Chucks, DIY checkered with fabric paint.

You should check out Ann He, a 16-year-old photographer that I just spotted in Seventeen Oct 2011 issue. She was one of the finalists and I googled her out of curiosity. Her fashion photos are breath-taking to say the least. Lookbook-perfect doesn't begin to describe the ethereal and artistic creativity that embodies her photography. This girl has the eye of the tiger camera. And she's only 16 ... holy crap. What was I doing at 16 !?

Biochem, immunology, science overload. Do not deny the Bill Nye.

Ah, I love the outfit. I have cargo pants like that with pockets all over them. I was on the search for a perfect pair,( cause I love cargo pants) I found them, I was, however very unhappy when I finally wore them to find out the pockets were sealed. What has this world come to? Great post and pictures!
