Why Choose When You Can Have Both ?

One green shoe, one red. As I've said before, if you like two pairs of shoes, get them both, and pair them up.

Here's the photographer's note:

Why Choose When You Can Have Both ?

December 8th, 2007 - Paris, France

I was trudging along in the rain behind Notre-Dame on Saturday, trying to hide my frustration at the lack of real photo opportunities behind a feigned interest in gargoyles when the friend I was with, who as a general rule finds my obession with street photography unhealthy, not to say unethical, said to me in the most matter-of-fact way, "Did you see that woman we just passed ? She was wearing different coloured shoes - it would have made a great photograph."

I barely had time to glance around before the woman in question disappeared into the crowd behind me, but it was long enough to see that indeed the potential for a great shot was there.

I walked on, my frustration doubled, trying to work out whether my friend's remark was a coded encouragement, all the more welcome for being so unexpected, to indulge my passion for once. As lightheartedly as I could manage I repeated her words. "Yes, it would have made a great photograph."

No response.

We walked on further, as the rain became increasingly heavy. We stopped beneath the awning of a souvenir store and looked absentmindedly at postcards. The missed opportunity continued to eat away at me.

Eventually, I could contain myself no more. I turned to my friend. "I have to go and get a picture of her. Wait for me here," I blurted, turning to run before she could reply.

By the time I caught up with her, the woman with the unmatching shoes - a fashion statement, or an unwitting witness to her colour-blindness ? - was almost the other side of Notre-Dame. But I caught her, and I took several shots as discreetly as I could. This is the clearest one of her shoes. You can see the whole outfit here. Trust me, it's worth it.

Girls...and their shoes!

Street Fashion - SF - waif in copper dress

Jasper Gregory has this to say about the photo:

She channels a sixties waif. This copper color is beautiful. She has three color blocks: hair, dress and black tights and shoes. I love the symmetry, I love the color, and her body language is completely endearing.

Page from 1938 fashion catalogue

Okay, this is great. Just the other day I was dreaming about my Grandmother's dresses, how the styles from the 30's and 40's were, IMHO, so sublime, the lines flattering. Here's the quote that goes with the photo, uploaded by juffrouwjo:

* * * * *

page from 1938 fashion catalogue

I am scanning a complete 1938 Sears & Roebuck catalogue for research purposes.
And I will also be sharing the scans with other people interested in 1930's fashion.
It will take a while... nearly 1000 pages!
But so worth it, I wanted to share this picture, I couldnt wait for the whole project to finish ;)

* * * * *


spotted or striped!

I'm thinking this could be fun: Why just buy one pair of shoes you love? Buy two pair, and pair them up. Remember to switch so they wear evenly. Where to wear? Anywhere!

San Francisco Fashion Week

A great look for fall~

From the San Francisco Fashion Week show:

San Francisco Fashion Week™ Review

Strong Spring 2005 Show Puts SF on the Fashion Map

San Francisco/ September 2004/ Metrofashion - Colleen Quen headlined an eclectic mix of designers for the first official San Francisco Fashion Week™ produced by Mystery Girl Productions at the Palace of Fine Arts Theatre in San Francisco from August 26-29, including exquisite evening and opera ball gowns, couture bridal pieces, sophisticated city daywear and contemporary rock-inspired denims, lingerie and swimwear, and diverse student creations from Art Institute of California and Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

Three days of rousing fashion shows accompanied by a strong open retail area left a startling impression that the aspiring San Francisco fashion scene has arrived. As one assignment photographer noted, ".. oh yeah, that's next year!"

Looks good to me!


Street Fashion, Haight-Ashbury

This one was taken by my daughter in April 2008, somewhere on Haight Street.

Wherever we go we photograph street art, some of it quite well done.


Shop Window, Haight Street

Shop window, taken on a recent trip to San Francisco, in the Haight-Ashbury area.  

We loved it there--the shops are fabulous!


Moscow Style

Originally uploaded by katbootka
Great look here, too. Katbootka says this "was taken in moscow's center!"

Simple white, boatneck top, black tights and heels, black ribbed beret, and thigh-length black coat. What sets this off so nicely is the striking royal blue mini skirt with offset buttons.
