    Love this look, especially the head wrap. Have you left London already? Oh no, I was rather hoping to get snapped by you in my new back to uni clothes, complete with a brand new, red leather satchel. Proper British!

    I 've been to Atlanta a couple of times. As a European I was very pleasantly surprised by the good mood and the kindness of people there. The smile and the ready- to help-a foreiner attitude make me not notice their clothes very much. Their good will is the most 'chic' behaviour one can find!

  62. jdit

    September 21, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    Pride, posture, grace and integrity. The beauty is just because. Length, gentle attitude, presence and command. I would take all of that but only if wrapped up in love.

    The soft subtly lit yellow of the cardigan and the accompanying golds and the contrasting complimenting color splash in her wrap are as much about the Ankh as she will always be.

    I have seen this woman in Little Five Points before. I think she works there. She is quite beautiful.

    Someone talked about how this blog only photographs slender people, and they like that.

    Actually, that is my one big complaint about the blog. Not everyone's body type conforms to the slender paradigm that is so wrongly coveted in our society, and indeed, I find it bigotted that the blog only features slender people. Beautiful people come in all shapes and sizes.

    Otherwise, I love the blog.
