Paris Fashion Week
Wednesday, 1 October 2014

[ DKNY sailor dress, Miu Miu sunglasses, Louis Vuitton leather envelope, Accessorize golden slippers, vintage bag ]

I skipped almost all the shows in London, only to save myself for my very first Paris Fashion Week show - Louis Vuitton. It is not surprising to receive only the best to find your invitation in a red leather envelope, along with a Louis Vuitton guidebook to Paris and a bottle of Ruinart Champagne at our Westin suite. I joked not when I said I was going to Fashion Week without dressing to impress. It was refreshing to go in the simplest, least astounding gown, even if it was just me in a maternity-looking Sailor Moon dress and golden flip flops. I was opting for elegance with visions of floating across the steps of the Louis Vuitton Foundation - only it was much more hectic than planned with fashion-people causing traffic along the Bois de Boulogne. All rushes aside, I managed to get seated right in time for Nicolas Ghesquiere's second debut with Louis V.

Oia, Santorini

A week well spent on the coast of a Greek island, promenading around the luxurious white village of Oia. Our local cat, which I named George, waits outside our door every morning for me to throw her a few slices of ham to start the day. Time away from the city and British weather was just what we needed, sleeping out on our open patio beneath the sun with pink grape juice lemonade in hand. We spend our breakfasts outside, shades on always and keeping it classy. The panoramic view is always breathtaking and pure blue, without a cloud in sight. The paths here are cobbled and flat-stoned with mini gate doors no taller than your knees. We walked through the long village to look at what their boutiques offer, often touristy ceramics, linen clothes, and supermarkets as small as a corner shop. I have to say the majority of money spent went towards groceries and fresh fruits from the local supermarkets, from blushing peaches and golden nectarines, to royal plums and green apples. Let me tell you, you haven't tasted real peaches until you've had a Santorini peach!

Amoudi Bay
Saturday, 19 July 2014

[ & other stories bra, Nike shorts, MiuMiu shades ]

B and I had great fun shooting by the rocky bay of Amoudi port, along the soft currents by the almost suicidal path towards the diving rocks. This bit was calm - the right mix of sun and shade by the purple red rocks and the salt foam of the shores crushing in. We made at least five hundred steps up and down to reach this place, and I can say with the work we produced that it was truly worth it.
