high noon @ somerset house







A shootout in the open courtyard, on D4, 20.09.11, LFW, s/s 2012.

Shot simultaneously: Jennifer, aka StyleEast, by me, me by StyleEast, StyleEast by me.

We noticed each day we were dressing kind of similar. I wish I'd asked where she got her alphabet soup blouse. I keep threatening/promising to do a 'StyleEast greatest hits' post, but my problem is, there are so many great hits, that editing's a bitch. Which Jennifer is SO not.

She is, quite simply, a ray of sunshine: smart, funny, beautiful, stylish, interested - truly interested - in the world around her, and in other people. A generous heart, and an open mind. One of the loveliest friends I will ever know.

Emily said...

What great photos!! I love to see photographers in action :)

fun pictures. even your outfit is fun. and you know i love that stack of bracelets!

polka dot said...

; ) thanks Odyssey!

Emily: you are the only one who has noticed! Or at least, mentioned it. Even on the day, no one said anything. The yellow is actually a Revlon scented kind of metallic colour that looks chartreuse in the bottle, but gold on. It's the only polish that I love when it chips off: at the moment my nails look like they've got bits of gold leaf.

the 'purple' is a blend - my own home made special blend - that's kind of a grey, but a blue/periwinkle grey.

Mat: she is. I can't wait for you two to meet - I guess you're already virtual friends - Jennifer is so great. And thank you, Serea! We all looove our Canons! Mine's I think a 50D.. I don't know. I just love it.

Things & stuff: I thought so, too, until closer inspection.

And Not Just a Pretty Dress: I promise, I will. Keep an eye out, I'd say within the next few hours.

Love what you are wearing! Looks like you have met your style soul mate!

Emily said...

The gold leaf on your nails sounds very glam and luxurious!!!

Love the two different colours - like to do things like that when bored of just one colour! Or I've been adding sparkles to the top of my polishes when I'm bored of it - or it's starting to chip!!

ARIS (Reuters) - France is in contact with Britain and the United States on a possible release of strategic oil stocks "in a matter of weeks" to push fuel prices down, Le Monde daily said on Wednesday, citing presidential sources.
France would join a UK-U.S. cooperation armani emporio on a release of strategic oil stocks that is expected within months, two armani watches men British sources said earlier this month, in a bid to prevent fuel prices choking economic growth in a U.S. election year.
The presidential office and the French energy ministry were not immediately available for comments.
Crude hit $128 a barrel this month, only $20 short of its 2008 peak, and is up more than 15 percent since January, largely because of sanctions against oil producer Iran.watches emporio armani uk
