While I more than appreciate the gracious compliment, I always wonder why exactly one wouldn't be able to pull off a bold, eccentric look. Dressing boldly is always more fun! Wearing a piece that strays from the more tamed, conservative chic factor takes your style a step further by displaying a strong level of confidence, subsequently improving the look. Actually, some of my favorite wardrobe pieces are are of the slightly off kilter kind.
I have always been a devout believer in self expression and creativity, and really the reason I love fashion so much is because of the voice it gives you without you ever having to say a word; your personality, mood, and even morals shine through your personal style.
Oh, and just in case you were wondering, yes, I totally went out in this outfit; if you know me at all, that comes as no surprise. It was great; fun, bold looks always improve my mood and just put a brighter tint on the day as a whole.
..and these sunnies originally reminded me of Anna Wintour, however, the more I see them, the more my mind helplessly drifts to Lady Gaga, yeesh..
