Walking home on a Monday in Saturday night's clothes. The left heel of the red boot is worn down and it clacks and slips on tube platforms; the pointy ends press the toes together. Eyes down. Dressed in hooker-red; it's a good look for a Saturday, the skirt narrow and tight with bands of pink, the long boots, the chiffon scarf fluttering round the neck; the red vest with buckles on the straps, the thrifted jacket: good. On Monday, with the hair all frizzy and the make-up slidden half-way down the face, it is... less.
