This is a very delayed post, but I finally found the camera chip with the photos from the Colonial Goods party we were invited to by Carmen Chan.
I really like Carmen's style there is something very dreamy about it. I just finished Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore and I really feel that Carmen's aesthetics fits the Murakami style: clean, slightly overexposed, no sharp lines, light, airy, almost intangible. What I really like about Carmen's work is the use of light, she captures the whiteness, grabbing the particles of light from the air with her objective and then compresses them onto the print. I like the less is more approach. Murakami's writing is like that it has a nostalgic melancholy about it, and a certain simple complexity.
As for my outfit, I just came back from holiday so was still in the mood for Breton stripes and wanted something short but loose and simple on the bottom, that's where I remembered my scalloped babies. As the outfit was looking too summery I though I needed to toughen it up. I bought these Marc Jacobs boots around 4 years ago and cost per wear they have been one of the best buys I have ever made. Bracelet Uterque, bag Bimba & Lola.
So it's almost the weekend! I am ready, you?
