Mondays are under-rated. Today The Chattanoogan presents two stylish portraits from the southside, both encountered before 9am. His blue and brown palette offers a muted counterpoint to her vibrant, autumn orange. Urbane folk aboard city bikes have captured the attention of 'blogs like Copenhagen Cycle Chic, Portland's vélocouture and Vélo Vogue in San Francisco.
The MAINx24 cup sleeve reminds us that twelve days remain 'til that party 'round the clock. Please make time for the 4pm Fashion Show at The Choo Choo, a co-production of The Chattanoogan and Collective Clothing, whose model looks will be inspired by Wes Anderson films. Crafters Tobi Gray Weldon and Karen Rudolph will provide accessories. Dressmakers Erin Burnap and Kimara Dawn have graciously fitted our event to their busy schedules.

Some days see themes develop. Friday's posts had in common clothing as travel souvenirs. A lunch hour tour of Market and Broad Streets today saw stylish folk in reds, perhaps inspired by the leaf season. The closeup of his polished boots also displays a sharp crease in those overalls. Fans of Beethoven, Brahms and Wagner should enjoy this CSO performance at the Tivoli Theater.

We call them thrifts. In the UK, they are known as charity shops. To the antipodeans, resellers are opportunity shops. His amazing jacket cost 50p at the op shop. Both of today's postings are reminiscent of this earlier, travel souvenirs duo.
Keeping warm in Chattanooga is a breeze in a coat that she acquired while visiting St. Petersburg.
So much has been said about style vs safety that this second photo is included to demonstrate that she takes precautions for both her arrival and departure.

School photography clubs descended upon downtown Knoxville at the noon hour today. Every third pedestrian seemed to have some kind of camera slung 'round her/his neck, all in pursuit of academic agendae. Even a television news crew put in an appearance. Thanks for the cover, people. Approaching stylish strangers is ever a delicate business. My first choice was a gent clad in tweed and corduroy who politely thanked me for my interest. More to the point were these two ladies who show just how far surprising color choices plus a harlequin bag or one well-placed bow might travel into the blogosphere.
