Much of my personal style is vintage-inspired. I just love pairing the old with the new. However, I also have an adoration for fashioning in contradictions and melding styles from different origins. An example of this is cherry-picking my favorite looks from different decades... or combining two opposing styles such as goth and preppy. Contrast as well as a good balance of push and pull is what keeps simple outfits interesting.
Likewise, Bullcreek Park this time of year is also dressed in contradictions. Dry, leafless trees are surrounded in a sea of lush green grass. On this specific gloomy day, I myself was nearly dressed in a desaturated version of myself. To add elements of "pop," I drew on my darkest lippie and added a color splash with my bright yellow jacket. Borrowing finger waves from the 20s, paying tribute to the 50s' classic shirt knotting, and wearing my own mother's vintage pumps from the 70s, one could argue tirelessly about what look I was going for. But that is exactly the point I'm trying to make. It doesn't have to make sense.
P.S. If you peek closely at picture 3, there's slight grass motion on the right side. I've been experimenting with gifs lately, so let me know what you think!
