Spotted Stephanie J. yesterday in the fabulous vintage shop, Rokit, on Brick Lane. There are four shops in London, and an online shop, and two are on Brick Lane (numbers 101 & 107, the boutique) and they're just fabulous. I can't wait to go back.
Stephanie J. is studying acting, and just has that star quality, don't you think? I didn't ask where she got anything, but I'd bet it's all real vintage. Love that look: the fur, the big alligator bag, the black tights & lace ups. A lot of it is looks I'd wear, but I just can't wear red lipstick, and whenever I attempt eyeliner like that, within minutes I look like a raccoon. She's got a bit of the Dita about her. Of course, it was freezing, so I'd love to see what she looks like in spring.
It's funny, the digital numbers for the close-up shot was 1939, which is just about right for the look she's channelling. Can't wait to see her in a film and say I knew her when. Here's a shot from Rokit:
I'd love the look of a tutu with a slim fitting tee shirt, ankle socks and high heels, as per Louise Goldin's catwalk, below.
