I’m loving the self-described ‘dustbowl’ look that verhext achieved by combining her little 90’s floral frock with a simple newsboy cap and lace-up oxfords.
I like the mix of soft brown hues as well as the contrasting elements: the feminine dress combined with the menswear inspired hat and shoes, the modern vibe of her tattoos mixed with the old timey feel of the outfit, and even her short cropped hair with the long dangly earrings. I'm a big fan of outfits that have unexpected little twists while appearing cohesive as a whole and this is a fine example.

Compelled to do a bit of inspiration searching, I came across this breathtaking compilation of stark and poignant images of Dust Bowl refugees from the Dorothea Lange Collection at The Library of Congress.
The way she captured the beauty within the sadness is just so incredibly striking...
