Fash Mob never switches off, you know. Even when not blogging, we’re thinking about blogging – today, for example, when we didn’t blog, we were thinking about blogging – doing a review of a facial treatment, checking out the Havaianas bar at BT2 (more on which on Monday), and meeting Sarah Lanagan to chat make-up (also on Monday). Yesterday we were, um, speaking at a conference, the less said about which, the better (except for how the conference itself was excellent).

Anyway, do you remember the week before last when we were away? (We like saying “we”, even though you all know we is actually I. Somehow it doesn’t even seem pretentious when we do it – although we hate it when other people do it, just FYI.) Well, even then, Fash Mob was SO ON.

There’s something very innocent about this look; the loose boyfriend wife-beater with the lace bra, it seems kind of unthought-of in a very cool way. I see this look a lot, but usually where people have put a lot of effort into sourcing a “statement” bra. Statement bras? Trashy, in my opinion. Normal lace bra? Very Carrie Bradshaw.

I papped this girl taking a pic of her friend. I love how a lot of Asian people, in hot countries, carry around parasols to protect themselves from the sun. I know it’s because it’s not chic in Japan (and China?) to be tanned, but we could do with taking a leaf out of their books. Anyway this girl had a lot going on – bracelets and cuffs and a hat and a scarf – but somehow it all worked in a low-key punk kind of way.

So there! Fash Mob is always watching. Sleep with one eye open, kittens, sleep with one eye open.
