Phase Two in the Coincidence Series.
Okay, so the previous post was last Monday (it's a bit confusing: time, and it's still hard to fathom, when it's FINALLY SUMMER this week and I'm pulling out the little print dresses). Then, two days later, last Wednesday, I'm sitting on The Couch at Cafe Nero with Natalie (yes, we've got our own couch), and we're just about to leave after hanging out for an hour or two, when who should I see thru the window: Josie and Hayley!
So this is Josie. Isn't she amazing? She's also so so nice.
This was the third time I ran into them, but the first time I shot them separately (hence the Juicy post). I like shooting random series of people (I just love coincidences, frankly). I mean, granted, all three Sightings were in the same general South Ken area, but still: if anyone has tried to form a plan to meet someone via phone, txt, email, AND twitter, and STILL you can't find each other, I feel the magic power of coincidence is something to be taken rather seriously.
I also like seeing how someone's style evolves: I mean, Hayley seems to favour prints and crosses, kind of Classic Goth with a Twist. Josie also channels a bit Goth, a bit Grunge, but she seems to like cleaner lines: solids and simple, almost sportswear knits. And note the same boots, bag, fishnets, altho I think she's got more than one pair.
I'm starting realise on what fascinates me about style: it really is a work in process, like any art form. We go thru phases. We have themes we return to as the mood strikes us. I mean, look at other animals: they don't have any choice about their markings, fur, feathers: man (or woman), alone, has that ability. I think it has something to do with the evolution of flexible thumbs.
Right. I've got to get showered and out. Meeting first Nat on The Couch for coffee, then Hedvig in the park to sunbathe, then straight on from there to a business meeting. What in the WORLD am I going to wear!??
