I am not much of a fashion plate, I typically spend about a minute to decide my fashion choice of the day: is it a short sleeve or long sleeve black shirt, is it denim shorts or leggings. Then the ultimate deciding factor: is it clean enough to wear? But I do enjoy looking at fashion, and when I am on holiday I like to stay in a very fashionable neighborhood.
This was the view from my recent vacation flat, an atelier with worker bees busily making incredibly gorgeous clothing. I’m not sure who’s design workshop this was (maybe Carolina Herrera or Stella McCartney?), but I found myself envying the people who would wear this and I wanted them to make one fitted to me,
And right around the corner is this ready to wear boutique of a designer. I admit that I like the dark coat, but I would probably balk at the price for such a utilitarian item.
This is much more to my taste, although as they are not in plain black, I don’t think I could wear them. (Also, I would probably resemble a sack of potatos rather than a goddess). But I would definitely cut this fabric up and use it in a quilt. Right in front of this shop the Petticoat Lane street market was going on, where one could buy a man’s shirt for 10 pounds (more my price range). 😉
Just up the street from the flat was this tempting display (okay, now I am being sarcastic). Pretty much everyone has stocking cap for when it is really cold, or when one needs to rob a bank or gas station, but I suspect that this one might cost a bomb. The hooded puffy jacket with the skirt might cause one to think that one was a recently escaped mental patient, so I think one should leave the price tags on the outfit. (Does this remove the doubt? I doubt it.)
