The red plaid is ubiquitous right now... and here is one of the many examples I will be posting in these coming days. These two illustrate well my obsession with couples that dress alike and are, therefore, part of the same "fashion tribe". I always ask myself if they meet and are attracted because they dress alike, or if one serves as fashion inspiration to the other as the relationship evolves... Any thoughts?

To me true style is defined by the way someone is able to combine pieces of clothing and accessories that come from completely different places to create something new yet harmonious. This girl illustrates this very well. Her dress is from a shop in Denmark, her boots are from Topshop and her bag is Balenciaga.

I was first struck by the hairstyles on both these girls, and when I had a chance to give the one on the left a proper look, I just had to photograph her. The plaid shirt bowtie denim short ensemble is so cool! It was a quickie, inside Selfridges. I always get nervous thinking I am going to be told off~

And it was taken the same day as the previous one... in the same charity worker ridden street. This girl, however, didn't try to run away from me. I love her look so much! her cloud hair with the spot-on hairband, the beautiful sandals, the gorgeous bag, all perfect.

I loved her purple dress and I was determined to take a photo even though she tried to "chooo" me away. She thought I was one of the annoying charity workers in South Molton street and I had to explain that I to plea for the love of scouting... those charity workers can be really pushy and they are making my life difficult, everyone in South Molton Street looks at me funny and try to run away when I approach them now!

In reality this girl's outfit is not that special, I know that, but she had such a great vibe! Very cool, feminine and modern. Her dress is vintage, from a Charity Shop. I love her hair and her pendant is an office paper clip (a new trend? see below)! Her friend arrived later while and she was equally as cool, but I didn't want to bother them, I thought they might think I was a stalker! A fashion stalker!!
Am I detecting a new trend, clothing and accessories inspired by office equipment?? Here is a close-up of her necklace, and below is that computer keyboard top of the other day...

This girl caught my eye for several reasons. First, the leopard leggings, which she told me used to be her mom's and are about 25 years old! the coordinating socks/scarf are also interesting! We heard it's hot in NY, but not here, oh no! We are wearing scarves in August... And she's with the band (or looks as if she is).

I love this girl's vintage look, from the shoes, to her hairstyle... I think she pulls it off really well. I never cease to be amazed by how styles keep coming back. Plaid is everywhere at the moment, I went to topshop the other day and they are inundated with cute plaid shirts. The trousers she's wearing as well, so current even though vintage, and the shoes are perfect with the look. I also really like the colours in the outfit.
