While wandering through Belltown, a Seattle neighborhood, a few weeks ago, I took a picture of a graffiti wall. It’s next to Vain hair salon and is part of a public parking lot. I enjoy artistic graffiti, but don’t appreciate tagging or vandalism. There’s a fine line between the two and a lot of it boils down to personal opinion. This wall reminded me of living in Toronto. I loved when the subway emerged from underground and ran, surface-level, behind the buildings on Bloor Street. The back of the buildings had an ever-changing array of graffiti.
I liked the combination of the black wall and brights, so I promised myself to use this inspiration. I pulled out my fuchsia pants and paired them with a graphite-colored top. Sometimes it’s nice to have a casual day.

Bright pink pants are not for the shy. I wore these for the color-blocking challenge recently. How would you style pink pants (or would you)? What do you think about graffiti? Does it have a place? It is art?
