On Line at Calexico, Prince & Wooster, Soho

I don’t know if Calexico has the best food (though I hear it’s very good), but they do have the best looking line in New York.

On the Street……Little Bit of Sparkle, Milano

A hard-drive crashed on me, and I thought I had lost this shot.

Originally, I stopped this woman because I loved her salt & pepper hair. It wasn’t until we began speaking that I noticed the very subtle bit of sparkle on her cheeks; such an unexpected touch for a Milanese lady, like this.

It wasn’t until even later, when I was working on the image at the hotel, that I noticed the smudge of sparkle on her earlobe. This lady is chic.

Lia Belle, Sydney

Do you see the seam in the middle of Lia Belle’s Prada shoes?

Lia Belle HAD to have these Prada shoes, but they didn’t have her size. She has very tiny feet, so this is a common issue for her.

Being the crafty Aussie that she is, she bought them in the nearest size she could find and took them to a shoe repair shop. There they removed the heel and cut-out a few centimeters from the middle length of the shoe. Then, they reattached the two severed pieces, re-sanded the heel, re-sewed the lining and refit the heel.

Sounds expensive, but she bought the shoes on sale for $250 and had $100 worth of alterations. Now, the shoes fit Lia Belle perfectly! No one can see the difference, AND she still spent less than the full retail price- smart lady.

Tailored Outerwear, Vintage Photo Contest

This photo is of my Grandpa, Richard Waltham (on the left) and his work friends taken in the late 1930s. My Grandpa was a banker and in his spare time he was an artist and photographer. I am a fan of the tailored look, not only do they have a very interesting sense of style, but it gives you an idea of what it was like back then, there is a lot of depth to it, from the water on the road, the advertisement to the left of them and the crowd of people behind them. My Grandpas story.
Hope this is of some help.
