I've always loved clothing which seems "normal" but is a little bit different, whether it be the fabric, or a weird print or cut.

Aren't they great? I hope this dribbles down to us in the next year or so. I can totally see dressing up an office look for dinner with a blingy jacket, blouse or scarf. Can't. Wait.
