There was a woman on my train talking on her phone about how she refused to “bow to the system” with her “unique alternative look”. It was a bit much for a Thursday morning.

Then I had a look at her.

Her “unique look” consisted of bright red hair dye, ruffle umbrella from Urban Outfitters, skinny jeans from Topshop, backpack from Cath Kidson and an orange padded jacket from Primark.

You go girl! Beat the system on a Thursday morning as you travel to work in the city in those High St clothes and accessories! Yeah! Rage against the machine indeed.
