Figured, right? Just when I changed my masthead and said that's it, no more street style for me - just travel, food, arts, architecture, film, blah blah blah, I was at the V&a with my husband on Sunday and saw Alice, above left, and Emma, right. It was sunny but cold and those two just had such great looks - not any one particular item, like 'oh wow I love your boots' - but just that beaming charisma that to me defines style. And even tho I didn't have my camera, I couldn't resist a shot with my phone.
Black and white is feeling SO crisp this spring, and into summer. It reminded me of what Paula Reed (formerly Grazia style director, now at Harvey Nicks, shot by me, below, when I met her at the Hatwalk event last spring) - I'm paraphrasing, but maybe not. Maybe it was verbatim. Something about how black and white is so clean, it 'cleanses the style palatte.'
Now I know that 'palate' is the spelling for taste, and 'palette' for colour, but in this context, what the hell, it's a bit of both.
