Darrell — if she lives in London, then why the ‘eck would she need to watch BBC streaming and how could she watch “Masterpiece Theatre”? We in London have the BBC on the actual telly, and we don’t have Masterpiece Theatre (though we do have most of the programmes that get aired in that slot in the USA).
That said — I think she looks like she might be a street performer!
She wouldn’t. But she would have to if she lived elsewhere and planned to visit London for, say, the Olympics. The second part, a job dealing with tourists, covered the second possibility–that she’s a local. I didn’t need to explain that should could watch broadcast, cable, or satellite in that eventuality–it goes without saying. You must be a hoot at comedy clubs. And to show you that I really am familiar with London, I know that Bob really isn’t your uncle.
I did not see where this pic had been taken at first. I thought that must be paris, I just think she looks so french. Lot of talk about too costumey (is that a word :-s) If this is a costume for the Tweed run… I hope more people wear them. :)
I thought the whole point of this excellent blog was to show the differences between ‘style’ and ‘fashion’. This is most definitely style and not ‘costume’. She looks terrific. Characterful and individual. High heels and designer labels are not required.
Everyone’s talking about her clothes but it’s her face and her hair that interest me – she looks like a portrait that Carmen Callil would’ve selected for one of the Virago covers. Strong, androgynous and self possessed.
