Love how Tatiana has worn her hi-lo/dipped hem dress: cinched with a belt to make it empire line-ish and black laced up ankle boots. The way she has styled her look reminds me a little of Laura's look....
Yesterday, when it was teaming with rain here in London, I saw 3 separate girls wearing army jackets/anoraks over dresses and thought they looked great. Inspired by their looks, I decided to post the photos of this girl and Jac (see post above) from couture in Paris....both wearing an army jacket in very different ways. If you don't already have one in your wardrobe, vintage/charity stores always seem to have a few in stock (there is one vintage shop in the Marais in Paris which always seems to have a couple available).
Such a fresh, pretty summery look: a lovely white peplum top, jeans, wedges and a basket bag (so chic and so often confined to fruit and veg shopping at the markets, or carrying things to the beach. This brings it back to city wear).
Okay, so I think you all know that I love anything in lace and this Valentino dress on Tamu is no exception. I love the shape, the fabric and the beautiful ivory colour. A dress to take you from day to evening and everywhere in between.
This was my day spent at the beautiful, magical, whimsical celebration of life, love, family, food, friends, music, the outdoors (and so much more) that was the Wilderness Festival 2012. It is difficult to explain just how beautiful the Cornbury Estate is: lakes, a waterfall, hidden forests, fields of deer, ancient trees and lush green fields....it is truly a little (although the estate comprises 1700 acres so maybe not so little!) piece of paradise in the heart of Oxfordshire.
I had a wonderful day wandering around the festival taking photographs, chatting to people (bumped into a few familiar fashion week faces!), eating incredible food and drinking in the magical surroundings. I can't wait for next year's festival.
p.s. I know, I know, a LOT of photos again (maybe I need an intervention?!) so congrats if you made it through the entire post without closing down the page :) I totally forgot to take food photos (particularly the Yotam Ottolenghi banquet) but figure I can do that next year :)
p.p.s Thank you so much to everyone who let me take their photograph including all the mum's and dad's that let me take photos of their kidlets.
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
