UUurgh that Pink!


I cannot tell you how much i chuckled to myself.  About a month ago, working weekend in London, i had day off on the Sunday and thought i might pop along the back roads to Zara, wandering along - well striding best i can in these shoes - i spy ahead of me a little girl about 6/7 i would guess, in a hideous velvet Laura Ashley-esque smack bang out of the 80's dress.  She is pulling it up, sticking it up over her head and generally rather unhappy with her Mother's sartorial choices.  I am musing to myself why it is you only ever see similarly attired children in Chelsea and quite how much you would have to pay a child from Croydon to put that on rather smugly to myself.  Anway, despite wedges, i am quicker and start to round them when the child, in the loudest voice ever, announces - UUUUURGH that Pink!!  I guess she didn't like my sartorial choices either and i haven't stopped smiling since! xx






Off for a couple of days but see you again on Friday xx

    Kids eh? You gotta love 'em ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ha! Love that. But what kind of little girl wouldn't like that pink? I guess one with a very sartorially inept mother...

    ReplyDelete

  42. The one thing that's so brilliant about that sweater is the color. That particular color, always makes me smile. I don't know why, but it does.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh, you know what? you look so pretty in that pink. Look at Frankie's look of absolute adulation! And when a dude that good looking is besotted by you, a 7 year old's sartorial opinion sort of melts way in the background, right?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Looking gorgeous as always! So casual and chic! love the platforms :)

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
