I don't always do this, but for this post, I'm posting every shot I took in a brief time sequence, just because, in hindsight, it feels like part of a theme. A black, white & red theme, to boot. Or, I should say, to little black booties. Those of you who've seen my blog before probably know I'm not a Reds girl, personally, but I respect others' right to be. Still, I'm not sure about the two Reds with one look idea. What's your verdict, fashionistas?
When I posted on Tuesday I was rushing off to the dentist in Cavendish Square with Mr. Dot. We both had dental emergencies altho his was a real emergency (mine could have waited, and will: I saw the dentist, but won't be treated til after the New Year).
Mr. Dot, however, was in real pain, and while I waited blithely, reading Tatler, they were pulling his tooth out. (Bet there was quite a bit of red there). I like this girl's soft grey colour scheme, and it's refreshing to see red on the one place you rarely see it these days: her nails. I'm going to start doing that: once in a while, I embrace a bit of red. Everyone's still wearing black nail varnish, or no colour at all, it seems. Or something in the blue family. Red actually looks unexpected, and new!
I happened to have my camera with me and, during the tube ride and the walk up Regent's Street from Picadilly, I couldn't resist pressing the shutter as I listened with concern to Mr. Dot's Dilemna. He as in such pain the night before he had taken massive amounts of paracetemol -this from a guy who never takes painkillers - and was having a pretty scary allergic reaction, so we also had to find a Boots. What can I say: it's been a rather freaky week in the Dot household.
Shot these two in quick succession: a second apart, in the moment before the elevator doors opened. Two identical black skirts, two different looks with it.
And as this post must come to an end, one parting shot: a shop window, with a look I love in winter: knee socks & heels. In black and white, not a drop of red in sight.
p.s. Minutes - three, to be exact - after posting this, I discovered this lovely post on a series of red coats on bicycles, in Copenhagen. Check it out!
