I went to a Uniqlo casting call in Old Street, so I had a little wander around and met up with my friend Federican at American Apparel. She wasn't quite ready for lunch yet so I had a browse around the shop and found a really cute dress (as well as some tee-shirts for J). I got it in black, but I will probably go back for more as the fit is really really nice.
I wasn't so sure about AA so far, mainly because I started looking at their clothes when I was pregnant and really I had the wrong body shape. Now I got my body back (man I love saying that), it is better. I am still not a size 6 and will probably never be, but some items are really good. I was never one for basics as I often find them unattractive to shop and boring, but now that i have Mila, I need to have things that are easy to put together in the morning, comfortable AND stylish. This dress does all that, and it is very versatile so BINGO. Bad news though, it means yet another place to spend my lack of cash... Fortunately, I get everything half price, so it is pretty much like going to Primark.
Now about this bird... On my way back to the tube, I saw this really cute little bird hopping around on the pavement, and as I was observing him, he suddenly started pecking furiously at a chicken drumstick. Eurgh. Cannibal bird. It freaked me out a bit, but thinking back on it, I find it quite cool. He was like the Jeffrey Dahmer of little birds. I have a feeling he was the bird who owns "ChickPizz" on Albion Road.
I would like to add that I was watching Dirt again last night and this time, Vincent Gallo was in it, playing... guess what? A crazy self obsessed asshole! I bet he didn't have to work too hard for this one. Well done Vincent. And now a bit of eye candy for the ladies (I like to call it midget porn).
Nice shoes Vincent.
