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?!
September: NYC and Maine as travel destinations; Cocktails on the Hudson River at sunset on the Grand Banks, and drinks at the intimate Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar in the West Village; Meatball sliders and Bibb and Beets salad at The Little Owl (finally made it here this trip!); On our travels we went to two fun "authentic" diners for breakfast (where the waitress pours you coffee as soon as you sit down just like in the movies!): Becky's Diner, Portland and Two Sisters Coffee Shop, Gloucester (fantastic corned beef hash and home fries with homemade bread. Get a side of buttery, lemony hollandaise....just because you can, and its gooood); Watching the sun rise over beautiful Penobscot Bay, Maine from the Adirondack chairs at The Inn at Sunrise Point; Sacai dress (so many elements in this one dress - cable knit, chiffon inserts, pleating - but it somehow works so beautifully together); Rag & Bone Kelly skirt (my friend JK has been searching for an a-line leather skirt for the last 2 years. Somehow they are never quite right: leather too thin or too thick, too shiny or just the wrong shape. This one might just be a contender); MSGM plaid mock neck top (brilliant to dress up a pair of jeans....wear with bright pumps); Marc by Marc Jacobs Junko pleated dress (quirky and cute. Wear with a finely knitted fitted turtleneck underneath); Topshop lace trim runner shorts (beautiful pastel colour and love the little lace trim); Marni wool-felt peplum bustier (Natalie Joos wore a similar bustier at NYFW and looked amazing. I like the felt-wool and wintery colour of this one); ASOS coat in relaxed oversized fit (a coat to snuggle in....); Opening Ceremony Scuba mini skirt (fab with opaque tights and brogues).
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
