Fashioning Smokes

From eras past it has been through photography that we see the coolest things to do at a given time. Growing up we are taught many things from general etiquettes to good morals but somehow it is inevitable for us to be influenced by pop culture. And so comes the habits which momma would frown upon, habits like smoking. When it comes to photography, smoking cigarettes has always been a thing which looks uber cool, from the black and white eras with icons like Marilyn Monroe to the 90s with grunge pioneer couple Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love to this very day pictures of a smoking person are still filed under cool. 
With picture filters from Photoshop to Instagram filters people are able to enhance their pictures of their daily life but when it comes to smoking pictures greyscale still remains popular take a look at some of Rihanna's pictures.
Point is with my love for street fashion I looked through some of the pictures I took a few weeks ago while I was out and spotted these shots of Sthe Masinga a photographer, taking a quick break from his work with a smoke and a camera hanging while I might sound cliché but I thought I should share these rad random shots I took.

Dior Resort '15

And I'm back again from my unplanned internet hiatus, to those who missed me sorry that you had to and to those who were hoping I never come back; stay mad honey child.
So last week we had our good dose of a fashion fix first the Oscars of fashion which is the annual Met Gala then soon after that we had the Dior Resort '15 show
Well I am quite sure that no one here has time for me rambling about the Met Gala after a week and besides I did enough of that on Twitter. So I thought I might share some of my favorites from the Dior runway which was a feast of colours and clothing artistry.
The high waist skirts with a fold at the top were one of the items I'd totally rock if I had been a girl.
Overall for me this collection was pretty and taught me that there are more ways to wear scarves than one.
