Was trying out my new digital Canon on Saturday @ the V&A and saw this lovely girl from Tokyo tottering carefully across the lawn. My first impression from a distance was of a geisha: something in the way she walked so carefully in her shoes.
I can't tell you why this outfit works so well on this specific day: she's got little feminine touches, but it's also Saturday Casual with her great hoodie. I bet there's something light and pretty under it, but she's also prepared for the shower that happened minutes after. The only impractical thing in her outfit, in fact, is her shoes, and I'd bet my bottom US dollar she's got a pair of backup flats in that great, waterproof Adidas bag.
Can you see her in this shot, eating her lunch? She told me her name but I couldn't spell it, so I'm hoping she's kept that card & will get in touch. The funny thing is, I picked the title before I really looked at the shot of her shoes. Once again, serendipity reigns!
