Sorry, typing this real fast as I'm running out the door to meet my friend Isabel, and will no doubt be finding even more great style shots - the sheer creativity out there is astounding after what felt a very dreary London season, fashion wise. I've got a queue of great looks that I desperately need to post, longer than the number of red buses that pile up when you've been waiting an hour, and I couldn't leave without posting this shot of Lizzy Walker, who I found in the middle of the road while shooting these window shots.
I noticed two things at once: how smashing her red lips looked with her pale English skin tones (I haven't touched this shot: it had just rained and that's how colour bounces on grey English days, isn't it cool?). The other thing I noticed, because I've got little black booties on the brain, was her little boots. It wasn't til later, when I uploaded, that I realised her little trick, which I'm passing on to all you girls out there (boys are welcome to see, too, what the hell!). Can you spot the Fashion Tip? Answer @ the end of this post.
There's been a lot of excitement this week about little black booties (wasn't there a children's book called Black Beauty? Something about a horse?). It's such a funny word, booty: I keep thinking of that song, shake your bootie, which I'd find on youtube and link for you except: is ANYONE out there going to my youtube links? I haven't stopped singing Cindy Lauper since yesterday and no one's mentioned it (funnily, tho, someone thought the girl on the right was Miley Cyrus, and she's also done a cover version of Girl's Just Wanna Have fun). And thank you all for the lovely comments! It made my day : )
Hope the sun's come out wherever you are!
