the sun is trying to kill the moon...

L was determined today. She had an unwavering urge to wear something she’d never worn before. To wear something out there and crazy, to wear something colourful.  I watched her survey her wardrobe, fumbling and hunting.  I noticed her snatch and capture many a beautiful piece.

Nevertheless she kept coming back to one particular item, a deliciously beautiful article, a treasured yet still unworn piece.  A fantastically bright and dazzling bikini top, adorned with improbable but gorgeous 3D flowers in pinks and purples, yellows and oranges and dapples of red and green.

Once she saw it she was set, she couldn’t get it out of her head, so many ideas raced through her mind. Thick and fast. At last she settled on something relatively simple to compliment the gloriously floral top. It turned out to be a sleek acid-wash maxi dress. Once on I glanced at L. I wasn’t sure what to think. I thought I liked it, but I wasn’t sure. After letting it set in I decided it was astonishing, strange yet compelling, odd and beautiful all in one.


Whilst out taking photos L did rather clumsily get stuck in the giant vine outside... luckily we got a quick snap!

  7. millions and trillions and billions of bobby pins made up this look, mainly because they were added again and again throughout the day as bits and pieces fell down!

    although it was rather easy to create by just pulling curls up and pinning them randomly!
