Today I attended a Fundraising Event at The Africa Center. There was lots of good food, music,clothes  and performances. I saw Eve as I came in and was immediately entraced by her outfit. It is a traditional Rwandan outfit that comes in two pieces. This color is fantastic and because the outfit was made in Africa it escapes all of the cheesy cuts that most western designers do when it comes to the "tribal look". I have so much to say on this topic!!! But I won't go on. I hope that you guys enjoy this outfit and come back for more!!

Spring is here (someone tell the weather)

 I really like the semi-casual mix of these clothes. Even though he is wearing jeans the dark wash keeps the air of refined casualness going. I also really like the cool tones which aren't as abbrasive as color blocking.
Even though mens wear has been a little confused for a few too many years this is proof that guys get it right on their own.
Plus I've never seen a guy wear white shoes! So this is pretty impressive (plus they're pristine)

Effortless summer


What the mall gave me

 I was walking to Anthorpologie when I saw these two. I passed them by twice before I finally mustered the courage to go up to them and ask them if I could take their picture. Sometimes when blogging pictures of others half the battle is not finding well dressed people but finding them with the right timing. It always sadness me when I pass people by who are in such deep conversation that it would be rude for me to interupt them. This is a bloggers dilemma.

There is something that is just so lovely about them. Not only the way that they are seated but their clothes which pull from that "old-world" sense of always being put together but the casualness of it. Some people always seem so stiff or uncomfortable whenever they've made an effort to dress up.
This is completely natural and I wish that more people would dress like this as they got older.
In this North American culture of trying to be eternally young we deny ourselves the pleasure of aging gracefully and enjoying the friuts of labour that we cultivate through our clothes.
This is what the mall gave me. Hope that there are those who still value acting and looking their age in a suprising and marvelous way!

I really love this whole look! Not only has she gone all the way with this look by putting together the perfect outfit, accecories and make-up but the cultural references that she makes with her earrings and hair just gives this depth.
