china doll



Back when I was noticing a mini-sub trend, i.e., wearing school jackets with cool insignias in unusual ways, I posted my friend Shauna wearing it in a rather predictable way ('detail oriented') and Sophie La-La-La X, of beautiful rampage, thought "it would look really nice with a graphic tee and some ripped up faded shorts!" (which I agree).



Well, Karen, who I spotted in London's Chinatown in Leicester Square, dropped the shorts altogether and just opted for a great Katherine Hamnett-esque tee and tights. I didn't ask where she's from - she seemed to be out with a boyfriend and another couple, and sounded American - and I was on my way to dinner with my other great friend Liz, to a fabulous place called Feng Shui, and we were all pretty quick, so I didn't source anything. But I love this look, and they were a nice group for a quick fun Chinatown shoot.

(Jimena, by the way, had suggested that jacket would look good with a 'cute dress', & I like what Phillipa did, see 'all a blazer').

I love her ensemble so much! Long tee shirt with the blazer on top! The average person would probably go with skinny dark long jeans but nope...she opted for black long tights, and what's worse is she rocked it! Loving the shoes, but I can't find any anywhere! I hate when I can't find a specific clothing item anywhere!
