More Chambray, More NeutralsPosted: January 25, 2013
Another chambray outfit , which is inspired by this. I added the yellow belt and the leopard flats for some pop, because I feel I’ve been wearing neutrals too much lately for some reason. Actually I have a theory about that: I’ve noticed that in Hanoi people like to wear bright colors in winter. Coats in red are always sold out first, and clothing stores display mostly red stuff in their windows. Whenever I venture out of my hobbit hole, I’ve also seen coats in purple and yellow and teal, even the men prefer brown and navy over black or grey – again it goes back to our culture associating bright colors (like red) with celebrations and happiness. So I guess I dress in neutrals to stand out more in a sea of brights.
P/S: No, the post title is not a reference to “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems”. I almost made that joke but then it would be super lame, since I’ve never even listened to the song.
