From distressed denim and now welcome distressed t-shirts, the beauty of fashion is that it is ever-evolving and it is so much fun to try out new pieces. I have been meaning to try on a ripped t-shirt (hey Kanye West) but It took me a while to warm up to it, so when I saw this top while shopping in Los Angeles, I just couldn’t resist the temptation to buy it just for fashion fun. Wearing it in this fashion daring city was fun and I walked unnoticed.

Wearing it in Nairobi, on the other hand, was more of a fashion experiment which I was aware of. But nothing could have prepared me for the reaction and the piercing stares and whispers of the people who spotted it. It was hilarious!
This fashion is not for the faint-hearted, but only for the fashion lovers who are not afraid to take risks. I am proud to own it, so to speak. And, who knows, maybe I shall take out a few of my old T-shirts and see how I can distress them in a quick DIY.
