Today I'm spotlighting a 20-year-old student from Florida A&M University with a blazing and blossoming interest in fashion, Rashad Benton. Our meeting was pure serendipity; this interaction between sartorial enthusiasts beginning with a simple friend request on Facebook. This figure enveloped in an untterly fashionable ensemble of a raspberry purple oxford shirt with a complementary dark bow tie was enough to extend him an invitation to the Flashy Life. After all, Oscar Wilde said, "One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards". Benton's Tumblr page, which you can view here, is an amalgamation of the stream of consciousness of a rising star in fashion. His musings on new items to buy, social dealings, the life and times of fashion personalities all mesh to create an interesting view into a young talent's creativity and ideas. Rashad's style exhibits an ambition-chic affect that gives him a sophisticated, clean-cut, and intelligent aura he no doubt can back up. Check out some photos of Rashad below and visit his Tumblr, his Twitter, and his Facebook.
