fashion forward.

while waiting in line at the hartsfield-jackson airport
a family friend suddenly understands
the true meaning behind the iconic nickname
 ‘hot-lanta.’
“making a great first impression is not an accident,
and with a little planning, experimentation, and application,
you can transform your style, substance, and impact.”

 central casting must have had a hand

in a scene on our neighborhood street today. 

while waiting at the corner for the light to change

a mail carrier in his blues came by riding a bike

a doctor in scrubs walked across the street on her way home from the hospital

 a construction worker in a bright neon vest held the sign for ‘stop’ and ‘slow’

all crossing paths

all in uniform

I have to admit that I felt a bit left out and underdressed

in sandals and comfy clothes

although I suppose I was in a uniform too

that of a teacher on summer break.

 

“I always had a sense that clothes, be it uniform or vintage,

could help to create a character.”
