Karen is from London but is now living in New York (lucky thing!) with her boyfriend and while we have been emailing each other for about a year now, we haven't ever met up in real life. So when Karen said she was coming to London and asked whether I wanted to catch up, I jumped at the chance. And took along my camera, of course :)
It was a (non-rainy) summer's day in London and we headed to Somerset House to take some photos. Only problem was, it was the opening night of the Maison Martin Margiela exhibition so we kept getting shuffled along by security (no invites to the opening were forthcoming, unfortunately!). Karen was a complete delight and we chatted about London, New York (she regaled me with stories of driving a car in NYC-it sounds terrifying!), fashion and photography.
So where did Karen get that?
Her dress is DVF, boots (men's) from a thrift shop, bag Alexander Wang, and her hat was borrowed. Karen's coral and gold ring is YSL and her pendant is from a street vendor in London
