What appeals to you about goth and punk fashion, the 90's the 00's?
I always found the goth and punk aesthetic really fascinating since my childhood actually , I remember watching those documentary about goths and I was mesmerized by them. Then I grew up and I started dressing this way because I wanted to but especially cause it was in phase with the person I am. The 90's and 00's are more like influences to me , I like the shape of the clothes during these eras or the way clothes were worn , the movies (Cruel Intentions and Jawbreaker 4ever) , the music etc
