Contrast + Featured: The Working Wardrobe

This week I had a bit of a realization - so much of life is about contrast. Not necessarily conflict, although that is the type of contrast us journalists tend to focus on a lot, but what I'm talking about is when things don't match up. They don't make sense together, but make things more interesting.
Here's what happened: I was walking home one evening and a saxophonist was playing a beautiful version of 'Silent Night.' It was cool and crisp outside, the street lights were decorated for Christmas and music was so blissfully sweet. Just as I start feeling like I'm in a Bing Crosby movie, a man walked past and swore (I'm assuming not at me) "F*ck you assh*les". Here is this perfect urban Christmas scene, and then a crazy person is hurling profanity in the street as he walks by. That's contrast. That's interesting.

So here is my contrast to keep things interesting. Wearing a super feminine skirt with tough boots. A modern striped print with a traditional Indian necklace. Contrast.
