LOVE the sequins. The girl in the top photo has such attitude and she can really pull off the sequins as part of a day-tim look

Hey mate, today, dust storm in Sydney, I read U book at a bookstore, And then, come here and be first comments before U release. It is amazing!

I love the first girl, she looks so fearless. The second girl I'm not so keen on I'm afraid. A bit too 'Hoxton try-to-hard' for my liking.

Awesome hair, the corn rows look fantastic with the bleach blonde :)

The first girl's hair is eccentric in a good way. =) I wish we could have seen more of her makeup. It looks amazing from what I can see. =)

It's wonderful to be young enough to wear things like this. However, it was new 25 years ago and so counter culture that it was exciting. Now it just seems done.


Blogger Suzy said ... (9:10 AM) : 

I love and miss London. The people and the city are one of a kind. I have very much enjoyed the London series of pictures on here!

You get out more than I do - is the punk aesthetic coming back? It would be nice. So much easier to be yourself if your making noise and breaking stuff. (c:

1st photo: Loving the hair dyed black at the ends!
2nd shot:
That is THE chic-est jacket I have seen in so long! And where can I get that bag!


Anonymous Eleanor Snare said ... (9:30 AM) : 

As an English Sartorialite (I think that's what your followers are called!) I always love seeing the difference between European/American/English dress sense.

Just goes to show the English are still eccentric, avant-garde, and bananas. Maybe not everyone will think these two are well-dressed but both to me represent essential Englishness found across the land, bizarre and somehow beautiful.

Your site is inspiring and also full of life; thank you for giving me a little fashionable lift everyday!


Blogger Lucy said ... (9:32 AM) : 

UK Rocks!!!


Blogger C.V said ... (9:34 AM) : 

Love the second photo.
Especially the bag... ;-)


Blogger Ella said ... (9:36 AM) : 

I love these pictures! You're so talented, though i'm sure you've heard that just about a billion times, from people who actually are important in fashion and photography and that aren't 13-year-old girls that just check your website 3 times a day to see if there are new pictures...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 AM) : 

The gaga influence. :) haha. First lady looks bangin. Her hair is original, unusual, and it fits her effortlessly. The make-up, as well.

Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (10:06 AM) : 

To me, the main thing about fashion, both haute couture and extravagant street fashion, is that it stretches our imagination to the point where, if we would never wear such things, it pushes us to try something new, something different. My favorite things about these two images is that the items seem to be straight from the wearer's inspiration, rather than some "it" garment. Jorge from WPB


Blogger kahartland said ... (10:06 AM) : 

hmmmm.... i want to just come right out and say its a bit freakish, but that wouldnt be very nice. everyone has their own style...... :P

And as for that second look: would you call that a grown up take on the nu-rave look that was oh so popular?

Blogger j said ... (10:36 AM) : 

my heart skipped a beat of awe when i saw these girls ... sweet courage!


Blogger 4life said ... (10:38 AM) : 

I'm a tremendous fan of that first look. Ripped tights, jean jacket, braids!, yellow sequins. This is '80s rocker chic at it's absolute finest. Wish I could see the footwear. It's probably amazing.


Blogger The Clever Pup said ... (10:44 AM) : 

A LOT of thought must go into planning these types of outfits. It must be fun to wear such stuff. and I imagine it takes a lot of confidence. I prefer your post below however.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:09 AM) : 

First photo - I love what she's done with her hair. The colour, the cornrows half way up - then free flowing. Brilliant innovation.

The rest of the outfit works in a glam post-punk way. Very attractive, very innovative.

Second photo - The outfit looks like something a kid threw together from castoffs she found in the Goodwill box. This is supposed to be fashionable?


Blogger Rice and Beans Vintage said ... (11:11 AM) : 

I love Everything about these shots! Color, movement, freedom, art.

That second photo is of Nova Dando, the stylist and designer, I think.

Blogger Wanderlusting said ... (11:24 AM) : 

The tights on the last girl...I'm befuddled. Are they like 6 pairs of tights layered, constructed, patched together?

Anyway, love the bravery here, especially with the first girl. She's her own person.

Blogger MOD PAUL said ... (12:24 PM) : 

Oi London now? How bout London last 30 years to now... The first place I ever had a bank teller with green hair was London. What a great city. The pic of the bird in the first shot could have been taken in 1979 not just 2009. Punk is timeless long live THE JAM!!!


Blogger Noelle Serafino said ... (12:38 PM) : 

I really appreciate the photo of the sequined girl. While my personal style is vastly different from hers, I still find it relatable - she may not be "high fashion" and decked out in couture but she is making a fun, fearless statement - using accessible, presumably affordable pieces to create a one-of-a-kind look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 PM) : 

Well, this is what London fashion is all about... Wear what you want, how you want and feel great about it! Oh, how I envy them, the Londonders...

First glance, love it! Perfectly put together. If you look at each piece individually, you wonder...what is going on here?! I love that this girl thought up this outfit, & wears it like it's nothing. The outfit doesn't wear her, she wears it!

Anonymous @ 4;53, your comment.. hurts. I've known that girl all week & she's the sweetest, kindest person. Being anonymous, I have no idea how you dress, but I'd guarantee she'd never say anything hurtful about your appearance.

Why is it that whenever people want to say something cruel, they always post anonymously? Always! I think there really is some truth to the adage that all bullies are at core, cowards.


Anonymous sad eyed lady of the lowlands said ... (6:28 PM) : 

Oh God, I miss London so very badly....Only in London you get to see such eccentric, unique and fun sense of style.

One should not try this at home unless he/she is a true londoner in every sense of the word.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:43 PM) : 

Love the girl on top. haha. She's so edgy. I'm just afraid of what the view from behind looks like. I definitely do not wanna know.

The second. . . if she weren't so youthful looking, she could probably be mistaken for the crazy bag lady at the supermarket or an escaped kindergartener who's dressed themselves for the first time.

Love the first photo. Hair is beautiful snd represents her rocker style. Also positively accentuates imperfections and her use of accessories which suits her... I am loving your site. Also, while I'm in NY, the brave style of Londoners is refreshing.

Blogger Joy Mars said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Wow! Two fantastic finds.

The corn-rows going up the side of the head is really creative.

But I wonder about "alternative" people like this. Just how alternative ARE they? They are SO into doing odd things that they've bought totally into materiality.

What happens when they grow up? When they get some actual money? Do they become mainstream fashionistas?

That first girl... shades of Cyndi Lauper. Love it! Great hair and sequins. Takes a lot of confidence to pull this off and she does.

Craaazy youth with attitude! I love the two pictures! Specially the first one which reminds me of Kate Moss


Blogger Tim McFarlane said ... (12:43 AM) : 

A few photos past this one, I had no love for the guy with the african collar, keith haring button, and his hair up in a bun. These two women have much more of a personal sense of style, in my eyes.

The first woman carries her hair and eye make-up really well-it fits. I like the second woman's look because, again, it all fits together somehow. The bright feathers on the jacket might seem a little over the top, but I love them here.
