The most valuable moment in our day occurs during that small moment of passing between one event and the next. It’s that 15 minute break before class where you sit on a bench and people watch. Or maybe it’s the 10 minute drive you take to work listening to bossanova. Or in the case of the girl above, it’s reading a book during her smoking break. Unfortunately for her, I interrupted her valuable time in order to get this picture :D
It’s not that this outfit is die hard “OMG WHERE DID YOU GET THAT TOP?!” because it really is not. It’s an outfit that would totally go unnoticed by 90% of the people who pass by. Luckily for you guys, walking around and taking pictures is my valuable nugget of time (except mine is more of a 4 hour nugget.) So when I saw her from afar, I slowed down, taking the time to break down what I was looking at. I liked the outfit, she’s a beautiful girl, but there was something that really pulled it together….red.
If it weren’t for these small trickles of red (her lipstick, nailpolish, and the book cover) you might think you’re looking at a black and white photo. Her leather jacket looks insanely soft to touch yet her skirt feels frayed and shredded. She looks like a badass with that jacket/cigarette yet the lipstick and skirt seem to suggest otherwise. It’s a tricky picture – but I like it. Uh oh! I guess your valuable nugget of time is up :)
