Neon + Neutral, Take Two
My second BDIB: Neon + Neutral outfit heavily focuses on the neutral of black, which honestly, I wasn't even sure if it counted for the challenge. The fabulous examples provided all showed neons with white or nude colors, which is what I went with yesterday. But I would normally classify black as a neutral, wouldn't you?
Also what seems to not count about this outfit is that the assignment calls to colorblock with your neons and neutrals, whereas I threw in this scream-inducing, patterned scarf. I say "scream-inducing" because when I saw it at the random outlet mall in Arizona, I whisper-screamed to Husband, "Fifi Lapin! Fi. Fi. La. Pin. On a scarf!" But then I decided this: BDIB is supposed to make you think outside the box, and hey, even if you don't go by the BDIB rules, as long as you got outside the box, it's a win.
