Floral Fishnets

As all of you should know by now, I covered the Toronto Alternative Arts & Fashion Week.  On my mind for weeks (yes, weeks!) was: what does one wear at an 'alternative' fashion show?  Apparently 'alternative fashion' can mean anything between rejecting conformity and commercialization to any form of self-expression.  I definitely appreciated those that attended and wore real head-turning outfits.  Me- I'm not that brazen.  Apparently floral fishnet stockings is the closest I was willing to do to stand out a bit.  I guess another factor was that I wanted to do what I could with my what I already had in my wardrobe, but when most of what I buy looks to the minimalist trend, it's a tad difficult.

I was talking to a friend about how wearing sweats to a fashion show would be the ultimate "alternative/anti-fashion" statement.  Perhaps not sloppy sweats, but styled sweats (if that's not an oxymoron).  What are your thoughts on what alternative fashion is?



What I'm wearing:
-Black floral fishnet stockings from Zellers
-Ash grey tunic
-Black knit vest
-Black Steve Madden patent leather heels
