Trend Alert: Steampunk

If you’ve never heard of Steampunk before, let me give you a crash course on it.  When you think of Steampunk, think of Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Edgar Rice Burroughs and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  It’s a combination of Victorian era and futuristic technology and fashion with a science fiction edge.  Simply put, you take new things and make them look old.

Some people are really into this trend and create their own Steampunk identity.

I’m not that into Steampunk.  I’m not putting down anyone that does this…that kind of thing  just isn’t my cup of tea.  However, I still love this trend because I love the Victorian era fashion and furniture.  I love seeing some of that fashion revived!  Here some examples of steampunk fashion for you to peruse.  Let me know what you think!  As always, click on the picture for more details!
