1.2.10

emma (the eyes have it), revisited



Emma*, in front of the Museum of Natural History.



I was on my way from A to B - having just stopped into the V&A to get warm, soak up some Renaissance & Medieval sculpture, and buy thank you gifts for the lovely girls @ the vet who fed our cat his tuna addiction while we were away - and I passed Emma, a mere slip of a girl, eating a green apple.



It was one of this funny moments when she couldn't answer cause she was chewing. I love everything about Emma's style: from the chocolate brown faux fur vintage jacket (so similar to my own), and that great huge Louis Vuitton-esque bag from Beyond Retro - the skinny black jeans - it's all so simple & somehow.. modern British. Classic London Casual circa 2010. And her eyes are gorgeous: cat-like and luminescent. I hope she finds this post. She's an absolutely charming girl and it was just one of those moments, cold and crisp as a green apple, that you're just happy to be alive. And I got the sense that Emma was having a similar kind of day.

How was your Monday?

*(Okay: I'm spooked. I meant this title to simply be called 'Emma', but somehow, blogger decided to add that phrase. I must have called it that before. But where? And who else had such amazing eyes?)

she does favor jennifer connelly. her outfit is exactly like something i'd wear in a chilly climate. the coat is so beautiful worn in a casual manner. her whole look is perfectly imperfect, as i like to say!

I was absolutely thinking Jennifer Connelly when I met her. She's got that same knowing, watchful gaze: smart but with a sense of humour.

I don't know if I pigeonhole people too often into looking like a celebrity. But I guess other people do it, too.

Jen: (style crusader) - I don't know about Emma, but I got mine - similar, a bit more warm chocolately (from the 50s or early 60s) @ a wonderful vintage shop on Portobello Road, near the top on the left (west) side. I forget the name but they're only open fri/sat when the market is. I found it's easier to find faux fur if you're not looking for leopard: they're jacking up the prices of leopard, it's an endangered species. I'll keep an eye out ; )

Jennifer Connelly- Labyrinth era- or if you squint perhaps a younger, cooler, better dressed Demi Moore??!

Yeah, Matt, I can see that.. but much nicer ; )
