So yesterday, in the break room at work, one of my colleagues was surfing the net on her iPhone. She was looking at clothes online (which happens to be an official national pastime in my house). Being as nosy as I am when it comes to all things sartorial, I poked my head in, and noticed that she was looking at a shirt that was quite like this one.

I commented on how much I liked the digital prints that have been floating about for the past few seasons, and said that her choice was very Mary Katrantzou. When she stared at me blankly, I realised that not everyone, like myself, is a complete fashion nerd, so I felt the need to explain the emergence of digital prints on the runway, and subsequently the high street, spearheaded by design houses like Alexander McQueen and Katrantzou. She replied thusly:
"Oh, I don't know about any of that stuff. I don't really follow the fashion trends. I just like to wear
things that are different, for the real world, you know?"
And then I had a moment similar to this one. Thankfully, it took place only within the confines of my head.
