Colour Clash

'Colour coordination really isn't your thing is it?' said an antique vendor to me as I strolled along Portobello market in fluro trainers and an orange fur coat, looking like I'd rolled through a highlighter factory. As we know, I like to mix up my colourings now and then. Even so, I have to say this outfit was a bit of a departure for me. For a start, I always thought Sports Luxe would be a trend that would pass me by. But as per usual, my love of trying different styles and my 3am trawling through Asos resulted in a whole new look. I think I may be addicted to internet shopping, and that's bad, very bad.
This was the first outing of my Primark snapback, alongside my luminous Nike trainers, which may give me the 'street' look, but really my presence on the 'street' is considerably limited.  photo 8thmarch7jpg_zpsa331a283.jpg

Alongside my colourful accessories, I wore this nebula dress which I found in the same charity shop as the orange coat. Nebula may be very 2011, but I really loved that print and I feel like I don't own enough galaxy print clothes. Under this I wore my disco pants, which are fraying really badly at the crotch and unfortunately can't be worn as trousers any more. Though I've bought a few things from American Apparel in the past, I've not had good experiences with the Easy Jean or the Disco Pants as both of them frayed or ripped. Nevertheless they are super comfy and I'll probably still wear them till they tear completely!
