katrina




Oh what a treat to be able to do street style again! I had hesitated for so long - partly because of the ElleGate thing (I was too afraid I couldn't protect people's images - after they'd put their trust in me) but also because frankly everyone was just too layered up. But on the weekend, we were in the park - I had my camera - I took so many gorgeous swan shots (more coming up). But no one caught my eye, style wise.







Until just as we were leaving, we both spotted Kartrina. I ran over and, huffin' and puffin', asked if she wanted to be street shot. Sure, why not. 'Do you always dress this way?' She smiled and we laughed - not exactly this way but yeah, generally.. 'I'm pretty flamboyant', she said.

I love how everything she's wearing has a story, a history. Her mink jacket was her grandmother's - a 21st birthday present. Her ring is her mum's, her watch, her dad's. 'I love how the scratches on the face all have a history', she said. I know exactly what she means.

Off to a private event that sounds like it could be such fun. Bringing camera. Will keep you posted. xoxo

Love borrowing my family's heirlooms.... I'm staking a claim on my dad's omega watch, I love it and love it even more that it was his 21st birthday press, back when 21sts were important.
