barbroandersen 's Thoughts:

This is a big favorite of mine, if not the favorite, out of all my outfits. I love the bizarre combination of three completely different styles: retro pin-up meets modern impulses with kind of a native American vibe. Of course, my “new” twist on the bun is quite cool too – if I may say so myself. There’s something very appealing about incompatible mixes like this; it just shows that different styles actually can look quite excellent together if you just try it. I never could stick to just one style, one color or one mood – always changing! My very best tip to everyone out there is: experiment with your style and don’t forget to have fun with it! Rome wasn’t built in a day, you know!

Very well put together. I see exactly what you wrote about the Native American vibe. The long Legs in Pantyhose steal the show in a wonderful way as well. Keep up the good work.

I love this look entirely. Everything, even if you wouldn't think they could work together, really really do. Its not too much either and it looks great! Buuuut . . . cigarettes are never attractive on a woman! (or a man for that matter) ;] You should try a cute little flower next time. :)
