The Scent of Summer

***
Just after a summer rain…

The air becomes warmer,
exalting the fragrance of flowers bathed in dew,
releasing a gentle mist.

Time is suspended.

Fine droplets shimmer on leaves and flowers.

A gentle breeze carries the scent of roses,
veiling space with its sensuality....

Scarlet Rage Vintage SS15

***
Everyone knows I've always been a fan of retro and vintage fashion, so of course I got more than excited when the lovely Jade Stavri from Scarlet Rage Vintage (which happens to be the most amazing vintage/retro shop in London), asked me to model their SS15 collection. Most of you have seen some previews of this wonderful photoshoot as I have been teasing you with Instagram and Twitter snippets for the past month or so. Well, I’m very thrilled to finally share with you the dreamy results. With talented Sally Rose as the photographer and Laura Marsh as the make-up artist, the whole process has been such a fun experience! See the rest of the story here for ideas on how to look like a retro Hollywood diva.

Vermilion Shades

***
One warm morning I lay in my bed caressed by the ray of sunlight pointing like a golden finger through the dust particles in the air. Stretching like a lazy cat, I stuck my toes out from under the sheets and wiggled them, enjoying the feeling. 

Then, lots of light! Someone had pulled the curtain open.. A smiling face beamed at me.

"Hello, sleepy head!" he whispered.. "It's a beautiful day!"

And so I discovered when we went on the terrace, as the sun filtered through the leaves turned everything into a symphony of soft greens. 

The air felt warm on my cheeks for the first time in months, and that afternoon I wandered around streets of blossomed trees, fascinated by the shades of melted vermilion the town was covered in. At one point it felt like I was part of an old movie. London does that a lot, and especially when the sun makes that perfect golden hour light that is reflecting in all of the windows...
