Yazzi and I meandered around the pier, walking past the plethora of fishermen and lackadaisical weekenders to find the perfect spot to capture my latest obsession with whitewash ensembles. It was the perfect occasion for it with the copious light lending a really crisp tone to our images and somehow, we even managed to beat the pluvial onslaught that happened a few minutes before our arrival. Even despite the tumultuous wind (to which I begrudgingly tied up my hair), Yazzi snapped the prettiest images and made me realise what a gift it is to have someone who is synergistic on the same creative wavelength.
This post would, of course, be incomplete without a few words about this exquisite floral clutch. I have always been such an ardent fan of Kelly Smith's work with her gorgeously effeminate illustrations and when she announced the release of her new label with Lauren Stevenson whimsically named Dancing at Dusk, I immediately knew I had to acquire something from their beautiful collection. As fate would have it, I have been lusting for a floral clutch for aeons and this one is a lovely allusion to the current floral trends without being overtly ostentatious and the print and pastel palette just effuses the kind of loveliness you know that you will keep forever.
Apologies for the length of this post but when you're surrounded by incredible artists who instil so much inspiration and prettiness in your life, gushing about them in a verbal deluge becomes inevitable!
Hope you are all having a sparkling week!
Love, Mandy. xx
