We were walking with Angus in Chelsea, which was a plan, but what we didn't expect was we all brought dogs: the delightful Jackson, and he brought his girlfriend's. So it was the old 'I didn't know you had a dog' 'Well I don't actually'.. then we ran into Felicia, who of course fell in love with the adorable dog, and we ran thru the whole 'It's not my dog' thing again.. have you ever tried to focus manually on an out of control, excitable puppy?
Felicia, who's from Greece but has been here four years, studied fashion design & currently doing a postgraduate degree @ LCF, (and is doing a million interesting things, including assisting styling for photo shoots) is wearing the perfect city summer outfit, in London or anywhere, really: a soft black leather motorcycle jacket from Miss Selfridge, (in preparation for that sudden summer cold snap), a hot pink summer dress from H&M, bare legs, Kurt Geiger tan gladiator sandals, black leather Gucci bag, and red toenail varnish. Hard/soft, male/female, ying/yang in perfect balance. A bit of turquoise jewelry and a big watch.. she's not trying to be all matchy matchy, in fact, not trying at all, but it's all effortless chic, down to her aviator sunglasses. And of course everyone's must-have accessory: a cute little fluffy dog.
You might recall Pat, back in March, at the Saatchi Gallery, in a genuine Harley Davidson vintage motorcycle jacket her boyfriend found in San Francisco. Imagine it now, sans jumper, black tights & skirt, but with a flirty pale pink/nude summer dress, or slip.
Of course, the ideal jacket is this gorgeous Topshop sequin number in nude, but it's still sold out. It's so unfair, Karla's got one, I want one, too. Please bring it back, Topshop! Pretty please! Perhaps we should start a petition.
