Not Born In The USA

Here’s another of my attempts to dress up a top and a pair of jeans. I saw the idea on a Japanese style blog and thought it a super fun, unexpected way to wear a scarf/handkerchief, and it can save you from having to wear a belt too. It wasn’t until I started editing these photos that I realized the close-up shot looked rather familiar. And then it hit me: it looked a bit like the cover of Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA album (hence my post title) – just a little bit, mostly in the color scheme and the framing. I never listen to Bruce Springsteen, but that’s such a well-know album cover that I guess I was subconsciously influenced somehow.
