Flash Fiction : Fashion : The Monochrome Shirt

20140126-133037.jpg

Kara sat tapping her long foot against the table leg. She stared at the clock until it struck 8:40. She had been late herself but the thirty minutes she spent waiting alone said more than enough. Glasses chattered, smoke filled the room, the dim blue light shone on the stage where the lady sang the latest Jazz blues. Conversations were going on all around, at every other table there was at least two people sat together.

Kara began to converse with herself. ‘What a fool you are girl’. She sipped her drink, and breathed out deeply through her heavily painted red lips. ‘Never again will I entrust my time to anyone else’. She took a second, thought about it, and decided never again will she trust her heart to anyone else.

She didn’t care that eyes were on her from all around, even though there was no certainty why they were all watching her. Had it been because it was so obvious she had been stood up? Or because her name and face was printed in all the papers almost everyday last week? Or was it simply due to the fact that she looked so stunning in that monochrome shirt?

The waiter floated over to the table were the lone women, in the monochrome shirt sat. He made sure not to smile too much. They had been given a script to use when they were dealing with victims of a stand up, but Roberto knew he was a very very charming man.

This morning I woke up, took a look at my swag rack and decided to go to my overflowing ‘chesta draws’ for some inspiration instead. I took out this skirt because I wanted to be free from jeans or trousers for a day or two, and then I wondered what I could wear it with. I always wear a solid colour top whenever I have put this on before, but today I was opting for a change.  Most people wouldn’t think to pop two similarish prints together, so I thought I’d have a go and see. And I LOVE it!

Mixing and Matching Prints is #sohotrightnow. This is been known as ‘#Prixing’ of late and again it is so hot and so trending! From the catwalk to the side-walk you will find someone somewhere Prixing.

Take a print or two and put them together to make a LOUD statement.  For those of you who aren’t as comfortable in such a LOUD attire, why not pop a blazer or a cardigan over the top. This way you can still be a prixer but subtly.

Remember if you love it, you can pull it off!

The Beginning; of my fashion story

WP_20130418_002Fashion is all about style. “Give me any old thing and see what I do with it” are the words of a true fashionista! You can style one piece in very many ways; an individual can have many styles too. Most people tend to stick to a fashion genre, the genre in which they are most comfortable with. There is nothing wrong with this, but I believe fashion is all about breaking boundaries and feeling temporarily uncomfortable.

With this page in the month of July I want you to follow my fashion story. As I am a student, transitioning from my second year to my third year, learning to drive and paying rent, with a one day a week job, I will be focusing on fashion for less. I will be trying out a range of fashion genres and with my thrifty finds I endeavour to highlight the best buys at a low price.

Jump into my instructors car with me and enjoy the ride.

C, Jazz.
