When it comes to matching-clashing, mod-inspired looks make a great foundation for wearing different hues of the same color. I love how these two shades of green taunt the eye and play with each other. The coverage of the vintage turtleneck balances out the micro mini, and my circle sunglasses, also olive green, give the whole outfit an extra retro kick.

Kurt & Britney?

Annie outfit 3 #3

Annie 21American Apparel mohair cardigan, vintage Versace Jeans Couture tee, plaid skirt from LF Stores, Wolford tights, Tod’s boots, Chanel shades.

Though Kurt Cobain’s grunge following and Britney Spears’ “Hit Me, Baby, One More Time” video were totally separate phenomena in the ’90s (Kurt died five years before Britney debuted the video that inspired slutty school-girl costumes for years to come…not to mention he kind of died to avoid everything Britney Spears represents culturally), the current ’90s revival has caused many trends from that epic era to mesh with each other. Kurt probably wouldn’t have been fond of Britney (or the word trend), but his penchant for oversized sweaters and thrifty tees and Britney’s iconic plaid mini skirt happen to work very well together.annie outfit 3 #4Who says I can’t get a little Marilyn in there, too?
