Too, too weird: I was with Jen in Covent Garden before Jackie's Amazing Orangery Birthday Party, and the one girl I wanted to stop - Christina, in her Chanel melting logo tee from Camden market - turns out SHINI KNOWS HER. It's just such a gosh darn, teeny tiny itsy bitsy wee world.
And then.. I was going to post this yesterday but I didn't, and today, Jen did. And everything I meant to say about logos and brands and the idea of designers selling cheaper items... oh just go read her post. It's better put than anything I could say ; )
The strange thing is, (as if the other parts weren't strange enough), when we saw her she looked pretty, and it was a nice look, but somehow.. it was a very bright, hot day, and the Chanel logo looked like it was melting - which was the idea - but in the harsh, un-English light, she looks... scary. Which she is so not.
Oh and another thing: I said I loved her ring and asked her to pose like that, and right after, Jen was telling me about this new thing of brands like YSL selling rings more affordable than bags (which doesn't even make SENSE!) and she mentioned Jackie, that's right, the Princess Herself, having the ring in orange (can you make it out in this shot with Jennifer from Style East?).
Here's the thing: somehow, Jen and I never talked to each other about it afterwards. Well, it must be true, great minds think alike.
