Taking footless and adding Paisley

Taking footless and adding Paisley

I thought LFW would be the perfect hunting ground for taking great Bubble Cam pictures.  Finding stylish people isn’t the problem.  Getting them to agree to have their picture taken is.  It seems if you’re not holding a pro-looking SLR camera with a flashy photographers pass around your neck, London’s fashionistas just don’t wanna know. 

I did a secret snap of this lady before the Berube show because in the sea of permatan, ironed out hair babes (I think Berube did a ticket giveaway promotion with some magazine), she stood out a a lot.  You can’t tell, but I loved her loose ish cream skirt that had suspenders and they way she’s wearing shoes that could really be men’s shoes.  However I was most impressed with her paisley footless tights because I’m feeling just a little bit jaded by the black footless tight epidemic thats been hitting London. Question is, did she buy them like that or did she cut up paisley tights and where does one find paisley tights?

    You should go on this site, they have lots of options, I think you could find something similar to a paisley print (these are some kind of similar : http://www.lookfromlondon.com/warbler_det.shtml )

    they are almost paisley. I feel your pain when it comes to taking photos of people (whether it be on the street or the mall etc.) so I’ve resorted to using my phone camera (the resolution sucks… but oh well) and pretending that I’m texting while taking sneaky photos of peoples outfits.

    It’s appauling, but then at least you have the decency to ask and respect the decision of not having a photo taken.
    Although, you would expect people to be flattered that you wish to take their photograph.

    Madison: My email address is on the left in the Email Me link – twinkle260@hotmail.com
    Annie: I did have some crappy little print outs of the Style Bubble banner with the URL but it’s more the fact that I don’t have a pro camera…. I guess ppl wanna look their best!
    Susan&Steph: Thanks for the paisley tights links!
