meet the maddoffs

We were strolling thru the park and I noticed this couple - not, as you'd assume, because of the pattern of her top (I truly don't have a polka dot 'thing' - it's just a nickname) but because she was barefoot. I walk barefoot on the grass all the time but once I'm on Rotton Row, it's sandals back on.
So I asked to shoot them & they were cool about it, but when I asked where they were from, they just laughed mysteriously (they had those kind of foreign accents you hear in films: usually by British actors). So, this being England, I didn't want to pry.

As we walked off we couldn't help but speculate: is it an imigration issue? Witness protection program? Are they perhaps the Maddoffs, with a new identity? Did I say something that is very funny in their country? Or was something perhaps lost in translation?

Great shots and I always love your text - you're the best of the streetstyle bloggers, no doubt.

How interesting! lol

I usually wouldn't like that outfit combination, but the girl can pull it off! They look like a happy couple.

And thank you, thank you for the comments on our blog, they were so nice! :) I agree with Richard, you're one of the best street bloggers I've seen in a long time....

Oh, bless you miss Julie Kissane, what a coincidence, you're my favourite fan, too! AND fellow traveller. Actually, your mom is my number one favourite fellow traveller, but you're a close second. After your dad... and Ben's up there in the top ten for sure.. you're all my favourite fellow sailors that's for sure!!

Thank you all - truly. It means to much to me to wake up & read this, esp. from fellow fashion bloggers who I really respect & admire. It's inspiring me to keep on posting!

They are being 'retro'? Going barefoot everywhere was an anti-fashion fad in the US during the late 1960s and early 1970s, even in places like New York. Especially young women. Probably was no different in the UK either.
