Grease Lightning

November 5, 2013

Danny and the T Birds

So, anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE heels and great dress. But lately, I have been intrigued by menswear inspired fashion and the androgynous look. I watched the movie “Grease” a few weeks ago (Random fact: I am such a musical junkie. “RENT”, “Hairspray”, yep i’m a nut for ’em all!) and I was inspired by Danny and the T Birds. Their style truly taught me the power of a leather jacket….and of course a good jar of grease! 🙂 After watching the movie I decided to go on a search for a good statement jacket. I ended up finding this great perforated faux leather jacket from Forever 21 for a steal. I loved it because I knew that I could pair it with ANY of my dresses or pants to add a unique edgy look.

With this look, I put my own spin on the classic “T-Bird” look by incorporating the current jean-on-jean trend and adding my trusty red-lipstick. I finished the look with a vintage tie-necklace and slicked back hairstyle with a top swoop (to channel my inner Danny Zuko, of course!) “It’s Grease Lightning Baby!!”

My top is actually my favorite jean crop top (I untied the front of the shirt and let it hang). I added a great pair of denim leggings and menswear-inspired booties.

I like channeling my inner Danny Zuko, but at the end of the day I love being regular ‘ol Chrissy Joy! 🙂
