Plumber's Crack, ala Oxford Street

A sister on crack 

Oxford Street
Near Bond Street Tube
Saturday Afternoon

This sister was chillin', just hanging out, not doing much. She owned that square meter of pavement. She and all her arse.

All in the Detail

A man and his outfit, the Doric Arch
Now this may seem difficult to believe... but this is, in fact, a man.
Doric Arch Pub, Euston Station, April 2007
I know he is a man, because I saw his face, and the full goatee he was sporting.

A blurry closeup
Note the detail work of the overskirt!

A vision in prints at Paddington Station
In another universe, one woman meets to compete for National Rail's fashion Faux Pas of the Week award.

As if with some desperate last minute attempt at senility, she threw on a pair of brown loafers. Unfortunately, they didn't go with her mustard and pink-striped coat, her purple floral dress, her red-and-black serape shoulder drape, or her burgundy-based-though-multi-coloured paisley tights.

Notice the print, on paisley, on alternative paisley
"Oh, my, I can't seem to find my green-and-orange zigzag, striped umbrella!
Oh daughter of the gigantic-yet-useless-red-barrette, can you help?"

Guest Paparazzi: Michele, in Islington
Hippity-hop! On the bus from Ikea to Brent Cross Shopping Centre
January 11th

Vibrant and fuzzy fabrics, a smart hat with ears, and the perfect strappy purse/necklace...
it says: "day trip to the mall!"

Little Bo-Peep... and Husband

Guest Paparazzi: Michele in Islington

His and her North London

One guess? They'd just stepped out of the Tardis.
Another guess? They were on interval from a performance at a nearby theatre.
Final answer? They were just for a bit of shopping. (The man, left, is carrying a roll of carpet.)

I went for a Walk... On a Winter's Day

Liverpool Street
December 2006
A Cold Day

Now, there is no DOUBT that this babe's legs are smokin'!
I am a pacifist and even I might kill for legs like these.

However, I would not wear shorts with boots and long black socks in winter.

Cute purse, though.

Modern Day Cruella Deville

Modern-day Cruella Deville

Oxford Circus
Friday, November 24

I have to admit, I literally chased this one right up the escalator, out of the Tube,
in order to bring you this gloriously scary photo.

Leggings have got a bad rap lately, but a bold statement like this, as you can see, can really give them a boost.

Layer Cupcake

7:00 p.m. 11 October

Unfortunately, the sad part for all of you is you cannot fully appreciate the impact of the bright red cowboy ankle boots paired with the turquoise skirt.
Really, the camo jacket and the diamond nose stud are hardly noticeable in person.

Do You See What I See?

To be fair, it IS difficult to see whether or not the side of your own boob is too wrinkled and ragged to come out...

Sunday, 15 September

Hypnosis might be one strategy to use to convince people that you aren't wearing an unflattering top and hip-hop trousers...
on the other hand, perhaps a little less hair dye and a one less toke on the ganja.

The Sun's Laura Hayes did an excellent write up on
How To Love Leggings, which let me tell you, isn't the easiest '80s throwback fashion to love.

Here's one woman breaking rule number 6.

Kensington Gardens -
No chance of accidentally getting picked off by wayward archers in this.
Good off-road shoes--check. Sporty bun--check. Spangly black sequined jacket for day--check.

From Trash to Treasure

Not pretty

Crossing Marylebone Road

Is it a jacket?
Is it a cape?
Is it made from a old-fashioned grocery sacks?
Is it wrong, so wrong?

Windsor Castle queue

My hubby says I should have standards, so my question is what standards is he talking about???
This hat should, perhaps, be worn while digging up leeks, but not while visiting the State apartments.
Note: This New Zealanders is also wearing elastic-waisted blue jeans,
though the waist was very near reaching the breast-line.

Important question: Is that enormous belt key to holding up her mini pajama bottoms?

Same spot
Two minutes later
When visiting last summer, my friend Amy said "How cute! the guys are wearing capris!" She would have loved this darling dandy, ready to catch crocs and drink pints and push pedals in this Austral-Amero-Anglo emsemble, perfect for confusing anyone into believing he is local.
