As Halloween quickly approaches, we know you are thinking about what to wear to your costume party. This year, steampunk is oh so hot. Brooklyn Indie Market's Steampunk II is the place to pick up some indie designed pieces this weekend. You will find indie brands Rocklove, Steamed Punk Laboratories, Once Lost and 19Moons among others. Show off your new funky look at the after party at The Way Station -- Brooklyn's first steampunk bar and performance venue. If you can't make it to Steampunk II this weekend, we did a little surfing and found some great Halloween-themed steampunk jewelry. Check out our slideshow for some of our top picks!
In my constant search for new and interesting Hivers to follow, I came across Shopatista- a veteran Hiver of over a year. Shopatista's style combines Japanese-inspired streetwear with the unique look of Steampunk- a Victorian aesthetic with a gothic sensibility, like this old-fashioned gown with a bustle. With Tokidoki, L.A.M.B., Artful Dodger, and Harajuku Lovers as some of her favorite clothing brands, it's clear to me that Shopatista is inspired by Japanese culture and street fashion, but she also loves to incorporate the unusual and the creative with her penchant for all things Etsy. After perusing all of her interesting fashion finds, I'm curious how Shopatista weaves these unique styles into one look- we're waiting for the day she starts her own StyleDiary! Check out some of my favorite items from Shopatista's Hive, and also be sure to click on over to her profile for more stylish saves!
