Visit to Selfridges...


DSC_0017
I have always loved Selfridges... As an infant, up until till the age of six, I had my hair cut at Selfridges... Back then the top floor was all children's, hair toys and a little tea shop for treats or to celebrate your birthday party...

Still now I enjoy a rush of excitment when I enter the store but unlike when I was a kid I now avoid the circular doors, especially as I'm currently walking with a cane... Consequently, I was delighted when this woman greeted and helped me find my floor... It could have been how I imagine it would be done in Tokyo or perhaps on a much more intimate scale at Daslu são Paulo... I did not catch the woman's name, just lazy on my part but I hope one day Mary Portas will recruit her to do something for her org, perhaps something in training...

Could be NYC or Los Angeles... When the sun shines in LDN

I’ve been spending a lot of time painting because of mobility problems, expecting my third knee operation since ’03, any time now….

Luisa says I seemed happy recently to go to hospital in an ambulance... I actually did have a nice day, except being nil-by-mouth for almost 24hrs…

Gasping for a flat and warm coke, flat to enjoy the taste without being distracted by the bubbles… After my flat coke the sun was out and I was inspired to paint the above... The power of branding; "I drink Coca~Cola"

What music/fashion tribe?

DSC_0058
Love the look... If I were styling an anime characters I'd use her as my reference for a "Super-tall, Rock-Baby-Doll character with Fierce make-up"...  I wish I'd asked what music she was listening to...

Lots of people wearing black on the streets...

Looking at this photo I realised I had photographed this woman before >>>third image down

Meanwhile, I love pic of the BSA "Bantam" below by the Blogger PaperThinBen...
I owned this bike in red, in 1970,  which I bought already old, used and a little battered... I had a few friends who also had bikes but I preferred to ride alone... Enjoying the elements...

Living for the weekend...

Untitled-15 "Glow-Boy-Glow" (G-B-G) was the first website I ever built, over Thanksgiving weekend in 1995 the premisse was not far from that of a blog...

The idea behind the website was to match photos found on the web with the music track that best represented the look... Not sure why but this pic makes me thing O'Jays "Living for the Weekend" or "I Love Music" >>>

Charlotte in Red...

Charlotte+Guess_Press_Day_LDN-20_04_20011
Working hard in PR and looking fun and flirty in red from Primemark... The bag by Guess we added for an extra something, because this pic was taken in their showroom at the press day for this collection, hitting stores about now... Honestly, it saddens me to say the collection was a little disappointing, as it had almost no denim and the little they offered seemed timid and too soft...

Only because I genuinely agree that this would be of interest to StyleScout LDN's readers and because Stephen Jones seems very nice:

I was such a pleasure to meet Ella Catliff 'ake' Ella-LaPetiteAnglaise.com on her way to an Armani event further up Bond Street last Thursday...

I love Peter Pan collars as does Ella and she let me smooch it out of her jacket to make sure it showed in the pic...

I like working with colour and as I processed Ella's photo I saw a simalirity in the fresh colours catching my eye on the street and the colours I love in my design references from 2004...

Out that evening Luisa and friends kept suggesting that I ask this man if I could take his picture... Wasant sure I wanted to bother but did anyway..

However, I'm glad I because he is so on trend (except for the sox) with the ease in the pants, the layering the skinny belt... Not that long ago, this was The Look>>>

The Family photo, with Lady Kennet seated, surrounded by some of her six children, and many of the grand children who were in town... I love calling on her when she's at home with Thoby, as she is always so welcoming,  although I have heard in around-about-ways, that I'm known around the household as  Thoby's loud friend...
