the girl next door




I was running late to meet my wonderful friend Maralee for lunch the other day (luckily, she was, too) and I met Alexandra just round the corner from home (she lives nearby, too). I couldn't not shoot her: she's got such a lovely, sunny manner, and a natural beauty that reminds me of a young Grace Kelly. Three quick shots: snap, snap, snap.



Shoes by French Sole, and sunglasses Dolce & Gabanna. Didn't get a chance to source the rest as kept on running, but if I hear from her, I'll keep you posted.

Now I must run, too: I'm late for a yoga class that I'm dreading: Natalie is one tough cookie, but in a good way! ; )

She really is fabulous on so many levels. I just adore that military-inspired jacket. And the way she adds a ruby scarf and leopard print-embellished ballerinas to spruce up the look is just wondrous. You are such a fabulous photographer - you really captured her happiness and carefree persona in these pictures; it resonates all around her! :)

Thank you sweet lovely women so much!! And the ones who commented on the previous post. In fact it's inspired me to post some cooking & Mr. Dot stories. Was going to make boeuf bourginon (sp?????) but had a major language misunderstanding with my friend Inma, and as result, he's getting ham & eggs again, that lucky man! ; D

Re: Alexandra, I agree: she just radiated sunshine. It's becoming that I can't walk out the door to do an errand without taking my camera, I never know who I'll run into!

If she were the girl next door to me I might move, just so I wouldn't suffer in comparison! What a beauty.
