The last one out

Dear fans, this is probably my last post on this blog, it is with regret that I have to move on to other challenges after some very interesting years writing about fashion.

I am coming close to finishing my masters and I am therefore in pursuit of challenges of some other kind.

My passion for fashion and for writing for that matter have not waned, I continue to share the same values as I may have discussed or as you may have noticed in my writing.

First things first: I want to thank all readers who visited this blog, anyone who felt intrigued by things posted there in and was compelled to leave a comment, and those 0who contributed to the articles whether it was proposing discussion topics or the actual writing. As for those whom we shared a business mind, a big up for your support. I just can’t thank you enough. For anyone else who I might have left out of the list, thank you. Best of luck to you all in your endeavors, may your passion guide you to your dreams.

A fashion passion has been dear to me, it was a challenge that I took to develop my writing and my passion about fashion. A challenge that I had no idea how it would shape up or what I would do with it. It has been a journey, a long one, an interesting one, a learning opportunity. It has been something like non I have done before. Looking back at the journey, I find no regret, there might be some in that I am leaving. But I believe life holds bigger challenges for me.

A whole new fashion world awaits

Rocket science holds a key to a whole new world out there, but only if the rocket scientists can propel rockets with right equipment and precision to the right places or spaces if you would prefer.

Pretty much like being at the right place at the right time huh! Amazingly, this principle extends to the art of fashion where the discovery of unique top stitch pieces awaits fashion lovers who continuously yearn and search.

Us Trendy, a few years back, started out as a show casing platform for independent fashion designers, models and fashion lovers to revolutionize the fashion space. Now, the fashion networking site has gone a step further to shape up the industry by setting up an online boutique offering their top shelf designs.

Us Trendy’s collection features shoes, dresses, jewelry, tops, skirts, pants, bags accessories and much more. If you are looking to populate your wardrobe with exquisite pieces, exploration of this fashion space may be just what you need.

If you were a rocket scientist, you would probably be more than thrilled by helping discover life and conquering space. On the other hand, you are going to be exhilarated after discovering a fashion world beyond the one you have inhabited.

Haute couture by bevello

Haute couture is the business of making expensive clothes of original design and high quality. Even without going to details, you can tell that haute couture is a form of unaffordable fashion. Today, it is simply a class for the rich.

Handpicked fashion with a vintage touch

Previously on a fashion passion,

Susan strolled down the high street in a leisury manner. The sun over her head felt like a guiding star except that it seemed not to move, or it moved so slowly it was hardly noticeable. Expensive fashion stores lined the street with their doors wide open and some shut. Like water flowing under a bridge, customers flowed in and out.

It is unnatural to act against the forces of nature. Being a single drop in a body of water, Susan was tempted to follow the downhill natural flow. However, she was also strong willed and she flowed upstream most of the time, against the current.

To her, fashion was not about labels only, it was about self expression through a meticulously chosen wardrobe, and so unlike many other drops, she sought fashion and not labels. She strolled past a Louis Vuitton, a D & G, a Calvin Klein among others. Their salesmen were benevolent, giving her smiles, that she returned with curtesy and ready to hold doors for her except that she was not interested in going in. She herself was a sales manager with a well off IT company, and she knew the rules of the game; kowtow potential clients for your own good.

After sauntering for well over an hour, she found what she had been looking for. Since she might not have approved of me disclosing her favourite store to you, I will not, for then I will not have a bargaining chip.

She bought herself a pair of slacks and heeled espadrilles and then some loafers for Matt. It had been a good flow upstream, a few handpicked picks with a vintage touch instead of extravagantly pieced labels.

In the afternoon, she went to China Town, or at least she thought it was. There she had chow mein. Afterwards, she sat in tavern facebooking and twittering on her iphone, sipping some and having a little hors d’oeuvre. And even though she was not in a hurry, she could not wait to see Matts reaction on receiving a pair of loafers from her.
