Ah, yes! Goggles.🙂 I got mine on the same day this picture was taken in August 2003. Although I had read “The Difference Engine” by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling by then I think I didn’t use the word “Steampunk” yet. Or did I? I’ve always been fond of Cyberpunk (it all starting with Shadowrun and Neuromancer in 1995) so Steampunk might somehow have found it’s way to my heart, too.
Although most people claim goggles not to be the ONE major steampunk accessory I’m still convinced of goggles being the most typical gimmick most people would think of when asked how to define a steampunk outfit. What about you?
I went shopping yesterday (again…). I got a beautiful skirt on sale. I plan on wearing it for my new job. I also found a nice shirt which I hope to show you next week.
Have a great weekend!
