The Odd Ones

Leather jacket: Vintage (had for about 10 years).  Dress: Vintage: Try Michael Kors (on sale), Sea or Asos. Bag: Chanel. Seen before in all grey/black here! Try Rebecca Minkoff Shoes: Steve Madden. Socks: Hue.  Shades: Ray-Ban

Have you ever gone out in something that you personally loved but everyone else said “you’re wearing THAT?”  Case in point.

Here is one of the 0.001% who’s okay with clashing argyle socks and leopard print.  Actually there’s a lot of prints I’ve clashed come to think of it like these wide leg trousers or this jacket with harems (note Oliver in the background).

I can safely bet that no one’s following this above combination which makes it oddly more appealing!!

Give it a go πŸ™‚

    The socks draw attention to the matching bag and vice versa. It’s very different, but that’s why I love you! You’re not afraid to wear what you want, and even your wilder choices work on so many levels πŸ˜‰
