it's black, it's white



Whatever your feelings about Michael Jackson, everyone has a memory or image of something that stays with them. For me - because I'm such a visual person - it was the video black or white (it wasn't easy to get a link for you: some versions are blocked for copyright reasons) and now I can't stop singing it. R.I.P, Michael.



In his memory, I've decided to post a black and white look, and what better person than Kate, here on a lunch break on a quite street in Soho, with Andrew. I saw her and thought she had incredible style & charm, but didn't want to ask to shoot her because I didn't know if it would offend her, being apparently disabled.



Turns out the affliction is only temporary, and caused by a collision with a broken wine glass (hers), her knee, and the floor. I hope Kate won't mind me lumping her with a Michael Jackson tribute, but she doesn't strike me as the type to get all huffy about it. I'm sure you'll join me in wishing her a speedy recovery.

Hi Jill, this is a goose bumps moment! It's so funny your post title was what caught my eye! Thanks for sending me your links, I love the shots! Ive also got photos of the Paris-Moscow Chanel window from my Chanel, they've done it quite differently it will be nice to compare!!! I was waiting till I have time to do a full post on the whole of that collection - did you see the little Russian doll bag from it - amazing!!!

Also I just can't wait for the Chris Kane for topshop, I still have a dress from the first one he did, LOVE HIM! Its almost my blogs 1 month aniversary!

Okay, it gets even spookier... it seems like every blogger has woken up today and for their own various reasons, posted something in black & white. Have you seen this?

and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
You're not related to a Mark Westwood by any chance? Used to live in Hay-on-Wye, had a bookshop but has since moved further north?
