The Runaways. And, major girl crush on Kristen Stewart. UPDATED.

You guys, I am SO excited. Tomorrow, I'm going to an early screening for The Runaways - that Joan Jett movie with Kristen Stewart. AND Dakota Fanning.

Dear God I love you, Kristen Stewart. I like how whenever she gets photographed, she looks vaguely uncomfortable and not all hard-core pose-y. You know what I mean? Like, she's showing up because it's her job, and that's that.

Anyway, I'm going with my buddy Emily from Girls Rock Camp, and I am wondering if Emily would be freaked out if I dressed to theme.  Ideas:

The screening is at

Here's what I've got so far:

A good start, but unfortunately I lack pants. Am trying to think of what Joan Jett would do in such a situation.  Am thinking she'd probably just skip them?

So, lacking both appropriate pantwear and the moxie to simply go without at tomorrow (morning)'s screening, I am learning toward either tights with shorts, a trend I am currently wearing to death, or, a ridiculous black leather skirt I scored at Buffalo Exchange about a year ago for $7 and have never, ever worn. It was one of those days where I was like, "you know what every self-respecting woman needs? A SKIN-TIGHT BLACK LEATHER SKIRT. WITH A BROKEN ZIPPER."

I know. I've never heard of that fashion rule for women, either. I'm just as confused as you are.

UPDATE: Here's what I went with!

I know I know. Shorts with tights. I can't stop!  Also, this picture is hard to make out. Which is why I made a special effort to get close-up shots of the metal-y, Joan Jett-like wristwear, with increasing degrees of toughness.




I'm not sure what that face is saying, but I believe it's something along the lines of: "DON'T F-K WITH THE BABYSITTER." Either that or "I'm really really constipated!"

AHHH I'm going too and I'm so so excited! I just picked out my outfit, and it's shorts with black, heels, and ridiculous amounts of sparkly jewelry, so I'd say I'm dressing with the theme. Please do too so that I'm not alone!

@Amanda - YAAAAAAAAY you're going too?! So cool!! I will definitely dress up, in that case. :)

@Anonymous - Woohoo! I'll try to report back and tell you how it is.

Breanna said...

I'm a little jealous. I mean, we've talked about KStew before. You know how I feel.

Breanna said...

Also, having just watched that trailer: DAMN. I wish I could have been in this movie.

Birth is much but breeding is more. 加油! ........................................

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

Try black cigarette jeans.
Have fun!

Michelle said...

Definitely dress accordingly!

I found a pair of leather shorts at Buffalo Exchange last time I was there and TOTALLY would have bought them, except they didn't fit. Sometimes a girl just needs some leather in her wardrobe!

Laura® said...

DAMN! I would've said go for the leather, cus there's no time to rock that in good faith EXCEPT for at a rock 'n' roll event like a Joan Jett biopic, yo. (And, for the record, even 40+ women in Montreal enjoy rocking leather pants, which is how I knew they were definitely NOT stylin', but that's neither here nor there, really.)

Mel said...

I ADORE the shorts with tights! I haven't worn it yet, but it's just getting cold in Sydney, so I think it might be my new look.

You look hot! True rocker chic!

Austin Eavesdropper said...

@Breanna - I know, right. I didn't know that The Runaways literally were a handful of 15 and 16 year olds. It's weird to think of Joan Jett as 15, for some reason.

@忍著 - I'll take your word for it

@Chelsea - Perfect suggestion. But my tight black jeans were all stretched out and dumb-looking. I need to wash them.

@Michelle - Haha RIGHT! That's what I'm saying. Just a wee touch of leather, to keep things interesting!

@Laura - I know, I didn't have the confidence to pull it off; but how awesome would it have been to slip on leather in the morning?

@Mel - Yay! Thank you ma'am. :) Shorts with tights is basically my favorite thing. The other night, I wore seer sucker shorts, tights and cowboy boots - it was admittedly strange, but, I got some compliments. GO FOR IT and taken pictures!!

Breanna said...

BTW, I really loved the fact that you dressed up for this movie.

Austin Eavesdropper said...

@Breanna - And then girl, went to WHOLE FOODS. Feeling like a badass. Ba-bam!

Next Twilight: You are K Stew, I'll be...the red-headed vampire. Ya?

I, too, am excited. Kudos on the theme wear. Did you see my post about the KStu look-a-like, Joan Fontaine?

Melissa Bryan said...

ooooh man, I'm so sorry I missed this -- the movie (had to work) and the outfit! glad you got to go!

Dude, that's Courtney Love in the last photo, not Joan Jett.

@Anonymous -- YOU ARE SO RIGHT! Good call. How did I miss the *very obvious* caption?
