Go Faster Stripes?

By SlowSong
She was walking so fast I nearly had to run to keep up with her. She was probably reporting me for harassment.
V2. Taking it all in her stride, and a lot more comfortably. Smile

Is she wearing her pyjamas? A fine well observed candid Chris.

Two contrasting images. How on earth do they walk in those shoes as in V1 - I used to manage 3 inch stiletto heels but with a size 3 shoe I cannot even stand up in the new versionsGrin

Certainly looks to be on a mission in those heels and platforms.
You do have to wonder why they need to be on the phone all the time

Hahaha...it SO looks like it, doesn't it?? GrinGrinGrin

Super outfit and capture in V1, Chris.

The pose in V2 makes me think (a) what she's reading is a tad perplexing, or (b) she has some lumbar problems.

Or maybe she's just holding back her haversack from bothering her Grin

A study in contrasts that's for sure.
I don't know how the lady in v1 stays upright, much less walks fast!

V1 - I couldn't even stand up in those shoes, let alone walk. V2 is much more my style. But she has my back ache too...

Your title is perfect...OMG what a lot of stripes and those killer heels which incidentally don't match the outfit at all. People nowadays always seem to be talking and texting on their cell phones while walking. Two great Candids...

Startling contrast in fashion between the two versions. Goes from eye-popping to subdued.

Before I scrolled down, I too thought she was wearing pyjamas in V! Grin Don't know how people can be looking at their mobiles whilst walking - I'd crash into things or other people! Smile Two great street candids, Chris Wink

A lady on a mission, but what a stride in those shoes - makes my toes hurt just looking at her.

Or is v1 a costume?

V1 is amazing. I assume she's telling Alan Sugar off...

V2 is quirkier, more of a geek, and is probably far less outspoken.

But one shouldn't make snap judgments, should one?

Reminds me of some weird movie with George Clooney.
v2 looks the more familiar city wildlife.
