Think Zebras, Not Horses


We’re turning the old adage, “Think Horses, Not Zebras” on its head. Yes, yes, I know. Sometimes, when you’re trying to figure out what the heck is going on, the best course of action is to assume that those hoofbeats you hear are horses, and not the rare in these parts zebra. The thing is, sometimes the reality you’re staring down is a zebra…not a horse.

Think Zebras Not Horses

You know you’re in zebra territory if the odds are against it and it happens anyway. Your low budget indie film (which you shot with non-actors in some nether region of the Louisiana bayou) just got nominated for 4 Academy Awards? Zebras. You move your failed band to the middle of nowhere and, next thing you know it, you’re opening for Dave Matthews and playing the Grammys, where you’re also a nominee? Yup, that’s zebras.

TFRL Uniform:
Black & White Together




We’re always looking for ways to make our lives easier. A uniform of black & white does the trick. Whether you’re dashing out for a meeting, doing the school run or dressing for a night on the town, wearing black & white together keeps you looking sleek and polished, while avoiding the snooze-fest that a black on black ensemble can sometimes be.

Slip a white T and a white blazer on over a pair of pencil slim or straight-cut trousers and you instantly look like a million bucks. Slide into a black dress and add a bone colored purse and voila! You look stylish and refined. Slide on a winter white pantsuit with black pointy toe booties and a black clutch and you’re ready for a day at the office or a night on the town.
