Life is like photography, you develop from the negatives

YesStyle asymmetrical sweater
Rag & Bone alpaca skirt (similar)
Topshop boots

Photography by Sean Young

Met up with my friend at a coffee shop for a photoshoot with his Leica M4 from the 1960s. There's that original raw texture in film pictures that just isn't quite the same when recreated with filters. The process is more meticulous.. he had to manually meter the light and focus. The results turned out wonderfully charming, and none of these photos have been altered by Photoshop.

  1. Lovely comfy look but to be honest, the one thing that attracted my eyes was your rock sized ring :)

  38. Love the sweater! It has such a great amount of slouch to it. Collar bones definitely are one of the sexiest parts on a woman.
