Tartan, tats, and striped shoes...
These legs haven't seen any sunshine for a while. Seen at the Sheffield Chinese New Year parade

Daily Outfit, 13th January 2007.
! Long woolen cardigan from Ricochet
! Olive green tunic-style dress (also from Ricochet)
! Patterned stockings
! Platform New Rock boots
! Pink silk scarf around my neck
! Black off-cut piece of cotton on my head
This is a strange outfit for me. I felt like a stylish digital spy or something. The tunic dress is amazing, I love it, but I barely ever wear it. I think because the weight of it is unusual — it’s usually not warm enough in winter but too heavy in summer. Today was one of those disturbingly seasonless days which seem to be occuring more often… so it seemed like a good time to wear it. Usually I wear it with a white shirt underneath — or at least, I used to when I worked in an office — though it looks good over a knit top too. The detailing on the shoulders is beautiful.
The black cotton on my head basically exists to cover my shocking, shocking regrowth. It’s a coarse solution but it works. I haven’t had my roots touched up since AUGUST last year. Amazing. This piece of fabric has done a lot for me over the years! I think I cut up a t-shirt one time & that is all that remains. It was my first experiment with wearing a scarf (or at least a makeshift scarf) on my head, & it kicked off my love affair… I have a whole drawer full, but some I love more than others! Head scarves are indispensable — they’re a great way to add colour to your outfit or disguise a bad hair day.

I love this for the great colors. Here's the photo note:
I nerded it up with some Flickr acquaintances at Gallery Hop in eye-scorching pink and teal.
The teal ribbed tank is from Joann's Fabrics, once I get it stretched and shrunk and washed to my liking I am going to stencil something on in metallic blue. Any ideas?
The feather clips in my hair and on my purse are also from the craft store.
The hot pink wiggle skirt is remixed, and so are the legwarmers.
The purse is from Sanrio, and the old platform boots are Blue Asphalt.

"My style always depends on my mood. I like floral materials. I try to look sweet. I also try to stand out."
Claudia (23, hairdesser)
"I like to be different. Fairies and fairy tales inspire me a lot. It's very important to express yourself!"
The hat is fab. Nice look all around.
Tan jeans, black fitted tank top with cream flower, cream wide-brimmed hat with flower adornment, black low spike heeled open toe sandals.
This is fabulous--I have to say. Magnificent coat, tailored in true Viennese fashion. I myself am the lucky owner of such a coat, (though all in charcoal grey), tailored in Vienna. It was my grandfather's, before they came here.

I'm currently preparing a set of male street fashion photos from Göteborg for the first issue of BUCK, a new UK men's style magazine. You can check their website out here. The first issue hits the stands at the end of October. In addition to finding it in the UK, you should also be able to find it in New York, Paris, Milan and Tokyo.
This is Lars-Petter. He was visiting Göteborg from Norway for the weekend, and was here for the shopping. Of which there is much that can be done.
