Vancouver (and some times Los Angeles) weirdo wears stuff, takes pictures, makes fashion blog.

Rock n' Roll

rock and roll fashion
Last time Genevieve appeared on my blog, she was glam rock. This time, she returns with more edge, more classic rock. Make absolutely no mistake -- this girl loves music, and you can see it right away in her style.

We walked through Los Feliz when we took these photos -- for those of you who aren't familiar with Los Angeles, it's a neighborhood wedged between hipsterville Silver Lake and Hollywood. Basically, a place that's an amalgamation of the two, combining so-trendy-it-hurts-your-teeth charm and mainstream razzle dazzle.

Of course, it's also the perfect backdrop for this particular going out on the town Gen outfit. Her closet is a treasure trove for every occasion, and for someone like me -- a homebody who prefers to melt on the couch, it's genuinely intriguing to have her put on something she would wear to a concert. That is, not the opera or philharmonic like in the last post.

She breaks it down for me.

First, that amazing jacket with shoulders that look like they can slay a man:

The jacket is Robert Rodriguez. The sleeves and waist are detachable by zipper which provides 4 different looks -  I thought it was just such a clever design!

Second, and of course, something to show her love and appreciation for heavy duty rock:

The tee is Brandy Melville.  Like everything else from that brand, this shirt is so soft and comfy, and I live in it. I am a Zeppelin fan and own a few shirts, but this by far is my favorite.

And to pull the whole look together:

And finally, the pants are Ralph Lauren in black leather. I think I wear them to pretty much every concert I go to because I just always feel so Rock & Roll when I put them on.

I pointed out that her wardrobe is full of sleek pieces with great silhouettes, and asked if that was something she applies to both more formal and casual looks:

Oh thanks! Yeah, I feel like more fitted and structured garments look better on my frame because I'm shorter, but I also like the aesthetic of structured pieces - they give a more polished look.

And lastly, the most important question of all... I asked if she appreciates lederhosen?

I love the lederhosen!

And I love saying lederhosen! It's definitely not something I can pull off myself, but who cares, because they look amazing on her!
