Defining Steampunk (Quite Loosely!)

So I've been seeing references to "Steampunk" everywhere lately and was finally forced to look it up. The basic idea seems to be infusing Victoriana with Industrial elements to create a look that is simultaneously hard and soft.

I picked up this little coin purse from Urban Outfitters a few days ago (on sale, of course, my chickadees!) and I think it embodies the concept quite well. It features rosettes made from zippers and added to a leather bag. I love it. I hear Steampunk is going to be huge this fall, so brace yourselves!

P.S) If this computer was functional, I'd be all about it!
