Just when I was thinking that my world had turned into a black and white film, because all I've seen anywhere is black, black, black (the most risque look being a bit of brown or beige, or, heaven forbid, a leopard print scarf), I passed this girl, on the phone, on Picadilly. I didn't want to bother her, just took one quick shot. You might have realised by now I'm not personally partial to red, but this flash of tomato on her skirt, under that luxurious looking handkerchief hem black coat.. it just looked so refreshing in a sea of black and beige.
That said.. I recently met Natasha on the street (she lives nearby) with her sweet daughter who I'd have loved to shoot, but I've got a 'no kids' policy. Altho she was in black and white, the wild zig zag pattern caught my eye. She said 'it's only Zara' but of course, we LOVE Zara, and she started chatting about all the things I've been posting about recently, about why is it okay to wear leather but not fur, and how she's half Danish and they're wearing more fur there.. and then she invited me to a private 'bling' event at her home Tuesday night, to showcase her jewelry designs. It's a funny old life.
