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.

I believe I have not forgotten anything but I did not have a count of things I needed to say so the reality might elude me.

If you are the last visitor on this blog, please don’t forget to turn off the lights;)


Style without fashion

Fashion, including what it stands for or is defined to be changes in a pace that even a writer cannot keep up with. But for all that it is and it gets to be, one would expect to see remnants of older styles or at least a progression of what used to be becoming what is and what is defining what is to be.

Not in all cases however. Like a river without a source, a direction or even a flow of some sort; how can that still be referred to as a river.

Fashion models waiting to walk

Picture the river, at the moment, dancing with pizzazz, swelling with currents and waves higher than you can imagine. Provocatively carrying everything in its wake, imposing, exposing, revealing, seducing, and yet when you look back the river possesses no signs of being what it is.

Almost like in a competition, it is about who squeezes their shapely or blowsy bodies into the most revealing, and strangling pieces, without even caring if the piece is an under or outerwear. In any case, they are now one and the same thing.

And ahead, the waves falter losing class, style and finally break up in all directions bringing an end to the meaning that they once gave to fashion and as a result refusing to define a path for further flow.

Flowing not with the current but like a flag; without a mind and thus a liking of its own changing direction with the wind. And when the wind is gone, it falls flat on its pole, like fashion does when style is gone.

T shirts for everyone

T-shirts are an everyday fashion item that everyone likes to have whether as a casual outfit or an accompaniment to a formal outfit. The simplicity in their design makes them appealing and a must own for all.

For some reasons they have evolved from being just simple pieces of fabrics for covering the upper body to being a medium of communication, mostly because everyone wears one.

As a medium of communication, they bear textual and pictorial content that the wearer identifies with or wants to share with others. And if we are patient enough soon with the advancement of technology t-shirts may bear hidden messages and video content.

Most messages and graphics on t-shirts are intended to be funny, serious, guff, fathomless and artistic. Of course, except for those that are not.

Funny t-shirts are funky and nice for parties or when one wants to show their frolic and funny side. 80’s t-shirts on the other hand are nice when one wants to communicate something that they still value, reminisce or identify with from the old times. Themed tees on the other hand are perfect for themed parties and the like.

Be Hip is an online t-shirt boutique that offers expressive t-shirts with different themes such as costume, movie, political, musical and comical.

The best of anything sometimes comes in a serendipity like manner. Usually it takes a little curiosity. What message do you communicate with your t-shirt?

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.
