Paris Fashion Week SS 2012...Doina
It's rather bleak in London today so I am trying to cheer myself up with some cropped white sweater action....love the way this girl (I feel really bad, I think I lost her card. I have searched through my bag and found three squashed chocolate coated peanuts and 2 run-out-of-ink-long-ago pens but not her card. I think she has a blog and is from the Ukraine- let me know if you know her name/blog!) and Peony have styled their white sweaters.
Edit: Her name is Doina and she has this lovely blog (and she is from Moldova!). Thanks Jenny for letting me know. How sweet are those fringed heels?!
March: Dreaming of my incredible trip to Colorado in late January.....horses, oodles of snow, and a fairytale setting. I want to go back again now; Eating: Inspired by my trip to Paris this month (and the unseasonably warm, spring-y weather), goats cheese tart served with a rocket, beetroot and avocado salad is on the menu for this week. I like the sound of this Jamie Oliver tart (and note no pfaffing about making pastry - ready made shortcrust is far less likely to have me in tears of frustration!); Drinking: Old Fashioned (had an awesome one at Keens Steakhouse, NYC); T by Alexander Wang cutout crepe playsuit; Jacquemus cropped sweater (wear with boyfriend jeans or high-waisted mom jeans for less bare tummy gap); Acne Studios Thelma dress (wow! love the corsetry. So pretty. Team with flats for day and dress up with wedges or high-heeled sandals for evening); Miu Miu printed Mary Jane flats (meow, meow, meeeeeeeowwwww); Tibi eyelet skirt (fresh and pretty and not too voluminous); Jenni Kayne slit front skirt(sophisticated and sexy. Adore); Sacai Luck denim and lace skirt(two of my favourite things in a skirt: lace + denim! Perfect); Topshop lazer cut satin skirt (peek-a-boo excellence); Maps by Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski (I was given a copy of this beautifully illustrated book of maps by the publisher and I absolutely love it. A lovely gift for both littlies and oldies); Ready for Spring/Summer: Toast Boules Set, Maison Martin Margiela Replica Beach Walk perfume and Anthropologie Hillside Picnic basket; Reading: Dwell magazine (not sure how this magazine escaped my notice until now. Love. So inspiring).
I am an Australian lawyer turned photographer living in London;
I take a thousand photographs every day - some in my head, some with my camera;
I can't imagine doing anything else with my life- I am totally and utterly in love with my camera and with the people and things I photograph
