Eccentric layering / bonkers look. It is a fine line

Hi Sweethearts!
After reading your lovely comments, where several of you commented that only I could pull of a look like the one with the studded winter-jacket, it got me thinking:
Chic or crazy.
It`s a fine line, you know! :D
I have to say I am not always sure I am on the chic side of that line, and I have certainly had those
OMG-why didn`t someone put me in stable siderest as soon as I walked out the door in THAT outfit-moments,
but the truth of it is, I don`t care.
Chic, sure! Crazy, I`ll take that too. LOL
I don`t go out of my way to dress bonkers, it just happens. That is me being me (you can read that any way you like LOL). I don`t dress up to get noticed either, I dress up for my own pleasure of it.
And also, I only own dresses, and am therefore always overdressed.
It is more fun this way, and if all else fails I am betting on my charm to get me through. Hahahhahahah :D

The outfit:
Dress, my design
Bolero, cut from a dress from H&M (I loved my other one so much I couldn`t touch it, so had to buy a second dress to make this bolero. The rest is a scarf, for now :D )
Scarf, dress used as scarf (It was a maxidress that I reworked from H&M)
Leopard bonnet and big purple ring, H&M
Watch, Ice
Leopard booties, Nilson

Tell me, do you ever flirt with crazy-chic?

xxx Anika¨

Although I don't think there's anything bonkers about your style I think crazy-chic is such an awesome look! It's that border line of love it or hate it fashion and I love people who dare to walk that line- life's too short to not be all dressed up and feeling fabulous <3 Stay awesome Anika!

Another post that had me smiling like a goofball. You and your blog are such a joy, A! And just so you know, your charm could take you all over the world.I love this look. The hat is darling! I can't say I flirt with crazy-chic often (okay, occasionally I'll aim for boho-chic and miss…greatly) but I'm always inspired by those who do. Honestly, my wardrobe is too boring to be crazy-chic! I own mostly solid colors, and the majority of it is black. Haha.

Anika, not only are you beautiful, you are unique in your personal style. I want you to know I do crazy chic every day of the week–though in all honesty, it's more crazy than chic! However, my nanna once told me it's with the grace that you carry yourself that really makes the outfit. So, even while I'm out with Roxy wearing an old pair of sweats with an animal patterned old tee, I hold my head high and strut like I'm on the catwalk! :)

I feel I'm always walking that tightrope between crazy cat lady/bag lady and chic. I hope I mostly veer on the chic side, but I know I take occasional steps into the coo-coo side, too! But you know what? Life would be so boring if nobody ever stepped over the crazy line to the bonkers side of life! I love this look. My favorite part is the caramel brown fluttery sleeves that poke out!

It's not crazy at all! I like clashing! It's great! People are too "safe"

'I don`t go out of my way to dress bonkers, it just happens,' –> haha this is just like me, but I am bonkers so it makes sense :) Love your posts, they are so positive and cheerful! Just like you ^^xoxo
