I wanna be a skunk

Due to insomnia last night I discovered that one of my favorite punk-cult-classic films, "Ladies and Gentleman, The Fabulous Stains", was in the play now section of Netflix.


I'm sure everyone who has seen this 80's gem can say they have been inspired by Corrine Burns, the heroin, in some way or another. If you have not seen it, especially any ladies, you MUST drop everything you are doing and watch it right this instant.

I put together a modern "skunk" look with some of my favorite designers and products, along with some new finds that were very specific to achieve the look of Corrine Burns, her band-mates and her devote fans.

First, you need the right hair and make-up.
