Steampunk by Accident

Hey, every outfit is not a homerun. Not even for a fashion blogger. Case in point-
Have you ever "achieved" a look by accident? I think I might have done that when I got dressed this morning. I work in a completely laid back office with no dress code. Seriously, I'd have a hard time coming up with an inappropriate outfit with what's in my closet. But my supervisor and I sometimes have a laugh about clothes. This morning, she was giggling at ME and saying I have a goth / steampunk thing going today. (I'm not entirely sure what steampunk is, so if someone wants to fill me in... )

Anyway, here's what I think happened:
When I woke up this morning, I knew I wanted to wear my black sweater. The one with the lantern sleeves. But I also wanted to rock my long, inky Bill Blass jeans. I didn't want to be too matchy, matchy so I decided to wear my high-heel leopard print Franco Sarto sandals. (No big deal, they're like a step up from Candies. Actually. OK. They look just like Candies.) Then I threw on my LONG brass owl necklace. I thought it was fine. But when I think of all of that- along with my heavy bangs and big black hangbag, which has a lot of hardware going on, I can kinda see what my supervisor was talking about. Accidental punk. Dammit.

Has this ever happened to you?
