Ok all you mod folk fashionistas - puullleeeze explain to me what steampunk is all about!
I see it used endlessly on Etsy (my main poking around site these days) and it mostly looks: black and white, shades of dark, an age irrelevant time period!
At first I thought this was a new "goth - gothic" thing. Is that kinda right?
I'm sorry but somewhere in my fashion history timeline, I just don't see a "style" of steampunk. Help me out on this. What "makes it" click? Where does it come from?
