It’s not every day you find your bag matching your boots. Especially when they have such uncommon origins. The clutch was a vintage market find in Milan and the Maison Martin Margiela boots? One of my first splurges after starting to work full time (you gotta treat yourself once in a while right?), from Zambesi. This stylish navy wool dress was a present my god-mother gave me over a decade ago. She wore it in the late 60s. I have to admit, I look much better in it when I’m not pregnant. But wool dresses are pregnant ladies’ godsends during winter. I’m not into pants during pregnancy, only resorting to them when I’m vetting, so knitted dresses provide both comfort and style.
Last week I had the pleasure of collaborating with photographer Richard Ibrahim for this photo series. He has got to be one of the most driven people I’ve ever met. As he snapped away, he told me his lifelong aspirations and goals. I’m one of the least ambitious people on the planet. But after musing with Richard, I realise that we all need hopes and dreams in our lives. They propel us forward and prevent us becoming stagnant. So note to myself this on this Monday morn: Need to find myself a vision.
What are your desires in life?
