It's such a dark gloomy day here, and before I get dressed and run out, I had to post something.. inspirational. For your viewing pleasure, open another window, click here, and turn up the volume.
Last Thursday I was having a coffee & chat with my friend Stella, a writer, at Cafe Brindisa on Berwick Street, when I saw Lucy across the street. I had to shoot her. She was so sweet, we did a few quick shots (all great) & I ran back to Stella, who was cool about it because her boyfriend is a photographer and he does this to her all the time.
This look, to me, is working on so many levels. I didn't even ask where she got that great necklace! (There's also all kinds of little silvery bits of jewelry, she just sparkles, in her eyes, her smile...) Lucy got the dress somewhere on the King's Road - vintage - and I love the way she's wearing it with scruffy white plimsoles (classic Ked sneakers) and beige socks.. she's probably got great heels tucked away in a bag for later, but this way she was able to move quickly on the street, rather than tottering around like a cripple, as some of the other girls were that day. (Note to shoe designers: stiletto heels & cobblestones, not a great mix). And that coat.. I didn't even ask her about the coat! It just happens to curl up in the same way as the dress. I am so so into pale nude/pink/soft white, bit of grey, light blue.. always have been, but this year especially.
Is it just me? What do you think?
