Did I mention that my daughter Jordana likes to shop? Actually she's passionate about shopping. These pictures were made AFTER we'd spent more than an hour-and-a-half in one London store with four floors - the first hour with me having no idea where she was! At last I found her, completely oblivious to the time, pulling more clothes off the rack to try. After she'd tried these on, she wanted to try still more garments, naturellement!
While I was waiting, I watched the parade of girls ranging in age from 9 upwards going in and out of the changing rooms. I was surprised to see some young girls aged 9 or 10 overly-preoccupied with fashion - wearing full makeup, nail polish, carefully-styled hair and the latest fashion fads.
After paying for Jordana's purchases, she put her coat back on to brave the elements, then voila! She discovered the vintage department of this particular store, from whence I had to drag her out 40 minutes later. She was looking for a New Year's Eve frock that didn't need alterations, as she's arriving in Savannah just in time for a New Year's celebration.
One of Jordana's friends from university arrived this afternoon and she was describing this particular store, "It's cheap, the clothes are really cool and it's gigantic!" And she said she could have spent hours longer there, if I hadn't "forced" her to go to another store (where of course she also found things she liked and/or needed).
