Out and about....Old Street

From Fashionistable

There are many times I am walking along thinking 'wow that is a great location I wish there was someone here now to photograph in it.' I have thought it about this wall many times. And at last it all came together. I was right beside the wall when I looked up and saw Hope in the distance coming towards me so just waited for her to reach me. And, oh the joys of being a street style photographer my battery let me have 3 shots and stopped. Not because there was no battery power but because it was soooo cold and I had been out for 2 hours in it by this time it just went brrrr and stopped. Luckily Hope wasnt in a rush and understood my predicament so I had time to warm the battery up and shoot some more. Hope is a stylist and accessories designer. She has also shot street style in the past, hence her understanding. You can see her work on her blog - here and her website - here. Hope's own style influence is everything and anything. Her favourite place in London is her studio in Stretham. Although she is totally English her family name is Dutch she says from a very long way back. Her surprise for you all is that she is 6'3" and said about her height "I am a giant" - is that her Dutch ancestry I wonder? When we were out there my husband kept calling it the land of the giants. She also said that she loves strawberry milkshake. Hope is wearing a hat she made herself out an old scarf that belonged to her grandma. Her other actual scarfs are from Morocco, coat is from a charity shop and is aged for a 6 year old she said that is why it has 3/4 length sleeves, sweater is also from a charity shop - she then said "I never buy anything new" the socks were bought in Milan and her shoes are from Beyond Retro.

She is fabulous, from the topper to the wonderful Moroccan colors reflected in her outfit. And what a fantastic wall mural to have photographed her against. It's interesting you mention how she's a "giant". First thing I thought when I saw your photograph was how I envied her legginess! xxx

Beautiful look!

styleeast said...

What a perfect location to shoot this look, it must've been fate (until the battery died!)

SabinePsynopsis said...

It totally all came together in this picture! I can so imagine your excitement (and the horror with the battery...). Hope looks lovely, and yes, the Dutch really are a very tall people (my favourite 'models' Angelica and Morgaine are both dutch, with immensely loooooooong legs :)
