In Retrospect

Recently (or more likely, in the past few months) I’ve been seeing a repetition of streetstyle/blogger outfits all over the blogosphere. The same shoes, the same bags, the same jeans – it’s like everybody is competing to look like…everybody else? I won’t lie, sometimes I would be swayed and get the urge to buy a certain ‘trendy’ piece (but style it my own way). But most of the time, the more present something is in the fashion world (or present anywhere else, basically), the more I stay away from it. What’s the point in everyone looking like everyone else?

With that being said, in today’s outfit, I averted all kinds of trends and went with my gut. To put together this outfit, I first thought of a rather unusual color combination (even though it’s not entirely unusual and can be commonly found in graphic designs). I then searched for items in said color combination and voila – we have a rather retro-looking outfit. What do you guys think of it? :)
