This Is How I Rock

Ferre Leather Jacket Furla Zebra Bag
At the age of 11, when I came back home from summer vacation at grandma’s, and my classmates asked me a question, “What type of music do you like, rap or punk?” I spent three months in the country reading Honoré de Balzac and Émile Zola and was not aware of the current trends (hello, pre-Internet era). I said ‘punk’ because that word seemed to be a bit more familiar and my friends happily lent me a Sex Pistols record.

To make a long story short, I was not impressed with that kind of music and decided that the emerging hip-hop movement is closer to me. My comeback to rock and punk culture happened later in life, when I started appreciating black color in clothing. To be honest, black color is still dominant in my wardrobe (check out, for instance, my Ode to Black to confirm that). However, the outfit that you see on those photos is more than just all black outfit. I believe that it is totally glam rock. Do you agree?

    Я вообще люблю черный, это универсальный цвет – всегда и везде здорово.
    Образ, просто супер. Мне все понравилось – и брюки, и куртка! И вы красавица!
    А я иногда панк-рок слушаю))

    • Я тоже так считаю, но иногда сильно уж увлекаюсь этим черным цветом. В сочетании с красной губной помадой черный цвет не всегда выглядит женственно. Я вот недавно писала о том, как меня на улице один шутник остановил и говорит: “Девушка, а вы куда идете? На кастинг сериала True Blood?” Я, конечно, посмеялась, но начала образ немного смягчать. Хотя это совсем не означает, что я полностью отказываюсь от панк-рок стиля. И в музыке, и в одежде!

      P.S. – Спасибо за комплименты, мне очень приятно!

  • Love this outfit.

  • I think that the glam rock is passed away as a trend, but it still is cool as a part the personal style. I personaly love to wear less feminine looks since I am a metalhead 😀 You look gorgeous! ♥

  • Love this outfit Katya, you look stunning. Happy Monday!


    • Thank you very much and Happy Monday to you too, Jessica! Xoxox

  • Katya – I feel like I say it every time, but it’s because it’s so true – you are simply stunning! I love the way you rock the bright red lipstick. And I feel like the headbands adds a bit of retro flair to this outfit – it reminds me a bit of Grease. (That’s a good thing!)

    xx Kathryn

    • Ohhh thank you so much, Kathryn!!! You are so sweet, as always!!!

      Yes, you are absolutely correct, the headbands looks a bit retro. Perhaps, I should call the look retro glam rock. I think it sounds awesome!

  • So edgy- I love this! And those lips, I can’t get enough!

  • Gah those boots are so cute! I love how sleek this outfit is. It’s hard but clean — lovely!

  • You definitely look glam rock! Black is a dominant color in my wardrobe too- I love that you mixed different textures to make the look more dynamic- leather, soft sweater, and (what appears to be) suede boots. And the red lip pulls it all together. You look amazing!

  • Oh, as a kid I was always away over the summer and would come home and have no idea what songs or music were trending (completely missing out on what my friends were talking about)! Really rad look, and must say your makeup’s on point 🙂
