‘Tis the Season for the Punk Rawk Grrl

Dr. Martens 20-eye Tartan Boots I sort of missed my window of opportunity for Docs –at least big statementy ones like these– and I regret it. While I have a hard time liking them on anyone over about twenty five, they’re an iconic part of the punk look, and you can’t mess with an icon. Just ask Cher.

Patti Smith Complete 1975-2006: Lyrics, Reflections & Notes for the Future For the punk kid with an intellectual bent. Women are woefully underrepresented in the annals of punk, so if all you know is Horses, do yourself a solid and dive a little deeper into the great poet of punk.

Perfecto-style Leather Classic Biker Motorcycle Jacket (great sales on this brand) If you want to go all out, pick up a vintage Schott Perfecto. Marlon Brando wore the 618 in The Wild One but I believe our mutual friends The Ramones preferred the 613.

Too Fast to Live Too Young to Die Vivienne Westwood ring. Punk isn’t dead, it’s just in a different tax bracket.

Be sure to check back at the main ‘Tis the Season page to look back on profiles you’ve missed and look forward to ones that are soon to come!

    @Lucy and @Wmnslibr: Have you both forgotten there is an ALAN RICKMAN EMBARGO???

    I need that biker jacket SO BAD. I have a sequin dress and skirt in my closet just WAITING for it.

    I’m well over 25 and on the days when they don’t plow the parking lot, I like my blue-gray Doc Martens with jeans, a cashmere sweater, and Mitsouko. (Of course, I work with engineers.)

    Miss Plumcake, I still love you for breaking your Alan Rickman embargo to deal with my broken-computer-and-lost-dissertation-meltdown. Thank you! (have to admit, I love the Paul Newman pics more)
