There's a lot of things in this outfit and in my life that seem to be a bit of a clash...
Clash #1.) I'm not "rockin' any Casbah" even though we know I wish I were just that "badass"
(definition via Urban Dictionary: ")
Clash #2.) The fight between masculine and feminine
(We all know how I veer toward the more masculine of attire, I'm not always one for ruffles and lace, sheer and sweet)
-But for this occasion I wanted to be just a touch more girly than my normal personality lets on. Not meaning I was changing my personality, just changing my clothing up a bit. That's the fun of fashion right? Morphing into whatever you feel like being at that particular moment.
-To go all girl is just too much for me to think about though, so I had to toughen it up a bit with a couple key pieces: The liquid leggings, the jacket (its fall for christ's sake, I want to wear my bomber so I'm going to despite if the high's are still in the '70s!), the lack of smile on my face (yeah I try)
Clash #3.) The silver purse with the otherwise gold accents
(I like to mix up the metallics once in a while, never hurt anyone)
-So remember when I was saying I wanted leopard print, particularly in the form of a new purse? Well my spidey sense came thru and told me to go more classic in terms of buying a new, nice, "gonna last forever" type bag. The only thing not so "classic" about it is the color. But even that is not anything trendy, its just a nice soft metallic, low shine, silver color. It will withstand the tide and be with me for a while, believe me. I think I made a fine purchase...the slouchiness is my style, I like the way it fits under my arm, or the way I can sling it across my forearm and look like all those little celebs when they run to get their Starbucks fix, um......yeah
-I'm happy to report I did score my leopard print fix today in the form of a pair of shoes though! That's a whole other post, surely it will come soon as I simply cannot wait to wear them! weeeeeeeeheeeeee!
And Clash #4.) My Mind vs. My Lack of Willpower
This goes without saying, it can pertain to many areas of my life:
-my wallet, my social activity, me going out on a Sunday night....gah!
-Let's just face it...I can be a real Buffoon sometimes, that's all I'm going to say.
(I know, not surprising whatsoever)
So yeah...maybe I clashed a lot when I went out on Sunday, in more ways than one.
