Okay, I've been trying for the past day or so to word this post the way I want, and I can't. I also wanted to call it 'prints charming' because I'm really into prints lately, and because of the charm bracelet, but when I went to link Roz's blog (because, if you are new, this is Roz: it's from the same 20 second 'shoot' we did after lunch in Ludlow because her dad was so ill he was turning green, but Roz and I couldn't say goodbye without doing a little photo shoot - after all she was dressed so beautifully) and when I came to her blog I saw her current post ('Now and then') besides being so gorgeous and based on her grandmother which her mum has told me about - she sounds fascinating - and in it she said the origin of word 'January' which is taken from the the Roman God 'Janus' - God of gates, doorways and new beginnings.
So that is my post title.
As for the charm bracelets: back when Roz was in the hospital, Pearl - who I have not yet actually met, and neither has Roz, but who has the most generous soul, who is the loveliest woman in every way - said that she was putting together a get well package for Roz, which inspired me to do the same. In Pearl's gift for Roz was this charm bracelet. Roz told me she loved it so much when she saw it, she felt like it was made for her, but then she couldn't believe that it really was made for her.
Anyway my head is feeling stuffy and I can't really think straight but I've waited long enough to post this. There are more shots I want to show you but at least this is a start.
Roz is wearing: Charm bracelet custom made by Pearl of Fashion Pearls of Wisdom, Kangol fur hat, her mum's boots (I'll show you the great satchel in a future post) and the amazing cape is reversible and cost her only £2.50 at a thrift shop. (More about her outfit in her post: 'red minidress...'). This girl has the Midas touch, but it's because she knows what she likes and keeps her eyes open. It's funny: the day we were meeting for lunch, I had my camera out but didn't see anyone I particularly wanted to street shoot, and as she and her (equally beautiful) mum came towards me, I was about to ask to shoot them when I realised it was them.
Anyway, I'll shut up now. My new year's resolution was to write shorter posts but I'm too tired and pre flu-ish to be succinct. Gonna go to sleep and nip this in the bud.
