It's Style Imitating Art-time again. The picture was lovely, full of sweet colors. But if you look closely, you can see a subversive, menacing element in there. It has a hint of ugly going-ons under the beautiful surface.
I tried, I really did. I would have loved to interpret this more literal, but these kind of colors are not part of my wardrobe. I own softer, similar tones in small doses: wrapped silk necklace, a leather ring, a bag, the deep turq of the skirt.
I went to uni like this and thought myself really very stylish. Necklace was maybe a bit over the top, you don't see a lot of jewelry on students - but this lecture was mostly "grown-ups" so I felt safe.
The ring I left home, though, that was too much for school.
