shallow waters of vintage buzz


kensington market in 1924 when it had a jewish heart
and today when it claims to have a trendy one. hmm...

waltzed around kensigton market today, n. needed accesories for her outfit (she's going to a wedding). apparently 80s rule even here. when did k.m. become a watering hole for 13 yr old paris h. wannabies??? i must have missed some major revolution while living in the central provinces.
luckily, the shop with vintage jewelery is still there and kicking. i go there mainly to admire 20s and 30s brooches (or even victoriana on a good day;-) also saw a beatiful 1911 frock (they actually kept it in a special glass case;-)
i really should stop pretending i'm an aspiring academic, if clothes are what excites me...
it seems that k. is as shallow as she looks.
