I think every blogger keen on street style features would agree that sometimes this exercise is no easy feat.  It involves hunting down well dressed people and often a bit of courage to convince them that taking pics of their looks is really because you appreciate evident efforts to fashion in a topical manner. –trust me; some people get a little weird when a camera flashes in their direction… bizarre I tell you. There are certain occasions when some of these subjects’ sartorial choices just seem organic and far from self-absorbed, yet incredibly stunning and one would be foolish to miss out on it. One of the good examples is this pretty girl I photographed at the Durban Fashion Fair last month. I understand that for some, this might just seem like a beautiful girl going about her business with a smile that could light up the darkest of arenas. Truth is, even though her fashioning ways don’t come across as in-your-face kind of fab (if this pic is anything to go by), her presence is highly observable and that is such an inspirational approach to personal style. I went crazy for the renaissance print 1960s style blouse she wore with that curly afro hair-do and that black laser cut neckpiece. I love that instead of a “constumey” vintage look, her style on that day could be relatable on many levels. Is she a street style blogger’s dream? Without a doubt.
