Take Two: Mixing Old and New

I don’t often look back to reflect on photos I’ve discarded at the time of posting, so I was quite delighted when I found these. It’s good to see what I thought wasn’t good enough at the time actually wasn’t too bad. Kind of like life huh?

Before you leave the house, never take one thing off…

Coco Chanel actually said ‘always’ not ‘never’, but if you have ever had a good look at the way she dressed and wore her accessories, there was nary an unadorned body part in sight.
