That Grrrl Thinks She's The Queen Of The Neighbourhood! #OOTD

"Rebel Grrrl you are the Queen of my world" are lyrics that I have been singing most of my life. The riot grrrl scene was the first scene grabbed me and never let go. Women empowering other women to be strong and independent and just love the skin they are in long before body positivity movements like "Eff your beauty standard". Women like Kathleen Hanna leading bands and telling girls to get to the front and telling us that we should pick up guitars and be in our own bands. Sound familiar? Yeah it is like punk right? Exactly anyone can take part, anyone can have a go but most importantly just be you! Wear what you like and love yourself while being creative and outspoken. So when this months Alternative Curves came around and the challenge was 'Riot Grrrl Heroines' a massive smile spread across my face. It wasn't even me who suggested this topic that's how I know these women are fully awesome.

For me when I was growing up a band I really loved was the Lunachicks. They were all about trashy trailorpark glamour, short babydoll dresses, fishnets and big shoes. So for this post they are my style inspiration. I pulled out the fishnets, lipstick, faux fur leopard print and covered it all in pure attitude.

It is all about looking fierce and cute all at the same time. Any girl is Miss world eff those beauty standards and be awesome. I had this coat for Christmas from my mama and the glasses were from my boo. I think everyone is fully aware of my riot grrrl inspiration on my fashion. The miss world  necklace I snapped up from the awesome Black heart creatives and you would have seen me wearing it before HERE when I went to see Courtney Love.

The dress was thrifted and the so were the killer shoes. Riots not Diets was a massive riot grrrl slogan letting the world know that our bodies are ours and nobody else can tell us to make bigger or smaller. So I broke out this donut bag from New Look because fuck yeah I love donuts. All topped off with an awesome bow from Asos. Now for some trash and sass...

Be fierce, be strong and do what you want. Fuck what everyone else thinks and enjoy yourself. If you want to drink Vodka from a teacup then work it because you are a Queen!

Can you tell I enjoyed this post? Check out the rest of the rebel grrrls.
