Everyday after my usual walk to Starbucks I always come across this particular Fashionista at the bus stop. Sadly, she always looked like she was in a hurry, so stopping her for an interview did not really seem like the smartest idea. Yesterday, I finally caught her attention and was able to stop her for a spotlight feature. Just like every other day, her style was impeccable and gave off confidence and originality. Her jet black hair, hot pink lips and creative use of a bowtie made me smile on the gloomy day.
