London Underground Fashion Victims

Fashion Victims on the Tube

Here's Friday's regular look at our slaves to fashion or following trends on the Tube or people with a particular style that they've made their own. I'm really sorry in that I couldn't find any public transport Californian fashion victims (plenty on the streets mind you - but no one on the trains and street cars I travelled in).

Kris will be pleased to hear that the metallic bags seem to be finally dying a death but possibly only to be replaced by.......

Glitter Bags

Sequins, sequins, sequins. As many as possible and make them pink too

Glitter Bags

The glitter bags seem to be multiplying here.

And if you're not content with pink glittery bags, try some pink glittery shoes

Pink glittery sandals

Perhaps a mischevious five year old or a Tube Elf has been running through the Underground with some Copydex glue and several pots of pink glitter. Where have all these pink glittery things come from while I was away?

Magic Eye Sandals & Fishnets

I must apologise to this lady for the angle I took the picture as it looks as though she has a club foot. She didn't have. She was just wearing my bete noir of fishnet net tights (flesh coloured ones at that), with some sandals that made me cross eyed

Fishnets and Magic Eye sandals

I took this picture yesterday. It wasn't very cold was it? So why the need for tights? And do fishnet tights keep you warm? The mind boggles, it truly does.

Versace Man

Finally muscular Versace Man

Versace Man

I've seen worse displays of labels, and at least this one showed some imagination with all the letters from Versace scattered across his T-Shirt in various fonts and sizes.

That's it for this week. The previous entry for London Underground fashion victims is here and all of them together can be seen on the following Flickr set.
