margo



Margo, outside Dover Street Market.



I love everything about this look: this particular shade of red with her colouring and her intense, pure blue grey eyes, the skirt that's peeping out that seems to be asymmetric (or maybe it's just the way she's wearing it), the little metallic pyramids on her scarf, the cut of her coat, those fabulous black suede platform heel booties.. and of course that white fur hat. I'm noticing that everyone this week is wearing white in some way, mostly as a hat or scarf. But Margo seemed at the start of the week's mini trend, as I shot this the Saturday before last. I just hope I read her email address right so I can source these items for you. But I bet someone reading this will know EXACTLY who made her boots. Are they Acne do you think?

update: just heard from Margo, she is, as I'd thought, from Poland but lives & works & studies in London. The hat & coat are vintage, the dress is John Rocha, the shoes, as Chilli Bee correctly guessed, are indeed from Office! They're just the look I wanted this A/W ; )

I love her hat! I have a kangol one almost identical to that.. My collection of fur hats is growing by the week. It's all this cold weather, I need to find some stylish ways to keep warm!
I love the way she has layered the black pieces too, giving it an interesting structure- all perfectly accessorised with her amazing coloured hair!
Hope the snow hasn't affected you too much down in London.

jill! okay.. 2 things:

first of all - this girl is amazing. that hair!! how do you find such stunning people? i love how all of her pieces look just the right amount worn in... it definitely adds something to it. the shoes are so great... and that hat! since going skiing last january and seeing every russian sky bunny with giant fur hats i have been desperate for one... she totally pulls it off. she looks perfect. and... her little bag is totally complimenting the colour of her hair. that is a pretty impressive use of colour!

second: i am so excited because i noticed that your blog got mentioned in the feb issue of UK glamour!! i am sure you already knew that and maybe you have mentioned it on here, but i missed it?? how cool! i am so excited for you!

ChilliBee said...

The shoes are either acne, or Office, I remember because I tried to get some from both but they BOTH outsold!
Love her hair, and her whole look,
Great photos too!
