Fitted Cute and Cheap

26. August 2015 Style 13

We were from the same world but we had lived very different lives. It didn’t matter though. We became inseparable from that first day of Uni. To be honest I think I used to scare her a little. I was that friend that your parents would discourage you from hanging out with. Her Seventh Day Adventist upbringing and deep flowing Arundel blood told her to stay away, but something kept bringing her back. I think it was my fearless sense of fashion and my unapologetic opinion on campus fashion…as well as her fashion, which consisted of pink and purple velour tracksuits, large pink handbags, below the knee denim skirts with diamante all over them and NO earrings.  It’s like our worlds were never meant to come together but the familiarity of home that came with our friendship as well as long afternoons spent sitting around playing fashion police kept us close. I learnt to deal with that Arundel slang (every second word being “bugging”) and she learnt to deal with my unpredictable mood swings and not so subtle up and down side eyeing of her outfits and the rest was history.

This look takes me back to those uni days. Going out meant a new outfit, as a result Supré was a weekly occurrence for us. The criteria was straightforward. It had to be fitted, cute, and cheap. Our high-waisted black suspender skirts with white singlets met the criteria on many nights. I love that laid back look of suspenders, but also the character they give your outfit, mine are from H&M and I’ve paired them with a long sleeve T from your local Targét. Fitted, cute and cheap.

    Your diversity ma’am is impressive. It seems like all material and design fit you like a glove fits the hand. Your facial expression perfectly suits the script. The photographer need I say more is an a class of his own. The prose are well delivered. Again we say well done. Bapa.
