It’s Not This Time of Year Without…Fashion Shows

It’s Not This Time of Year Without…Fashion Shows and lots of it. Now is the time Fashion Houses, and the industry pump out Spring/Summer Collections. What’s In verses What’s Out, on every fashionista’s mind is did my favorite trend of the year make it into next years trends and what’s new?
I picked 2 silhouette shots taken during the just concluded GTB Fashion Weekend, David Tlale’s Collection was on show and i’ll be sharing my shots of that on Thursday on this blog. On a more quiet note my birthday was on Thursday and it was pretty quiet….*crickets chirping*…very quiet, i guess that’s what happens if it falls in between Monday and Thursday it naturally moves over to the weekend. 

Hers’s to a wonderful weekend, and check out the link to see more entries of this Photo Challenge.

Jump into The Week

Military Hop Skip by rubys polaroid

So…..its not my usual Monday post but everyone has that Monday morning where they drag themselves outta bed by their feet, do the motions for the day while their brain is half asleep. Yup, i had that Monday today…sigh
  It was for a good cause, i attended the just concluded #GTBFashionWeekend (Saturday and Sunday). The line up was for Enterprise in all its forms, from showcasing art to fashion to hosting business and fashion Master-Classes. It was well and truly packed with stuff to see and hear. I attended a Master-Class hosted by Tracy Reese ( For those who don’t know she has been responsible for clothing US First Lady Michelle Obama to at least 14 events)got to know her background and listened to some business advice and also the Fashion Show (which was really cool 🙂 )for that i’ll be posting the shots taken on Thursdays now.
To welcome you guys into a new week and wake myself up from my #MondayHaze, here’s a moment caught on camera of a man in uniform checking his shoe out 😀

Have a lil laugh and have a great week ahead 🙂
