sliding doors (I could be in Albania right now)



I saw this girl on the platform at Notting Hill station. Soon as I snapped this, the train arrived & she got on.

Has anyone seen that film Sliding Doors? Who knows what could have been different in her life if she didn't get on that train. Life is that random: I think of that from time to time. How different my life could have been if, instead of going to that loft birthday party in Tribeca (NY) where I met Mr. Dot, I'd gone to Indochine, as planned, with my friend Claudia from Berlin, and the French guys. For one thing, I wouldn't be reporting to you here, in London, on street style. I could be, who knows, in Albania perhaps!

Anything is possible. Oh, and I love her boots, and now I'll never know where she got them. Unless, of course, any of you out there can tell me.

They look like these boots I saw in Zara some months ago... only I think the Zara ones were more floppy.

I think about "sliding doors" all the time! It used to really bother me about what I was potentially missing, and then I decided to move on to the here and now...and right now I really like those boots!

Hi huni

Just found your blog and those boots I love too. They are the ones Sienna Miller wears from Russell & Bromley. They are not *2* expensive at £299 if your going to wear them all the time. xxx

Sliding doors was a great concept (didn't like Gwyneth's haircut though)... I think she could wear any boots with legs like these!

, and the sliding design of the door ensures an easy in, easy out entry into your home. But you don't want this same easy-in entry for unwanted people. Sliding doors aren't quite the same as traditional doors, so when you go through your home and examine all the ways someone might be able to get in, don't forget to check your sliding door!
