fashion, style, or none of the above

With several Fashion Weeks recently coming to an end (and others just getting started), there has been a lot of discussion regarding the fashionistas photographed more than the runway models: Street Style “models”.

fashion: modifying the look of the Parisienne

Not only am I in love with the fit of the skirt, I am in awe of the colours and details of the print. The combination of tiles and florals is fairly pale and dull, but touches of baby blue bring out brighter hues in the skirt. Continue reading fashion: the printed skirt meets a really bright colour
