Granted, I did take over 1000 photos myself whilst I was traveling but my lack of good SLR camera and photography skills in general (minus the mean Lomo pics) meant that I have album upon album of scenic snaps but nothing that truly sums up the overall feel of where I've been and how much I loved my time out there. Somewhat handily, Aaron Farley has visited all the places I've been, and taken some truly amazing shots. Thailand, California, Australia and New York feature heavily. Quite simply, I love his work, and the places we have been. So in his handwriting, here is a brief overview of my travels...

As I Lay Dying is one of my go-to books whenever I need a little inspiration. I'm beginning to think I may have lived in 1930s Mississippi in a past life considering the fatal attraction I have to the Deep South. I am immediately drawn to anything that hints at picket fences and swing doors, swamps and rifles resting on porch chairs. William Faulkner's novel, for me, personifies the purest existence of this life through the complex emotions of a deceptively simple family, following the death of Addie and her wish to be buried in her hometown of Jefferson. Tony Lee Jr has adapted this story into a series of images, expressing each character as a different typeface and pairing them with an object to make this detailed novel a little easier to immerse yourself in. The original script was a stream of consciousness over ninety six chapters, and as everyone knows, a picture says a thousand words...

I couldn't wear it anywhere. In fact, I probably couldn't wear it at all without breaking my neck but these Braided Pompadours and Hairy accessories are somewhat fascinating. CuldeSac are teaming up with Studio Marasol to explore the use of hair as a raw material. When you put it like that, it sounds almost normal; and with the industries obsession with fur why wouldn't hair be any different?

Beautiful yet subtly fashionable English Weddings are hard to come by unless your parents started a trust fund for the best day of your life when you were knee high and all your friends are in the fashion business. If I am ever to wed, it's going to have to be in a picturesque country church covered in white bougainvillea with thousands of tea lights inside, ensured good taste in guest outfit choices and flowers in my hair or this day will not be happening. Not to mention the string quartet, babbling brook within earshot and dusky group photos on the nearby bandstand. Unlikely as this is without me falling for the love of my life in Eton in the 1920s, I will not be setting foot down the aisle without this dress. Lanvin truly is god when it comes to wedding gowns.
A Light Dusting...
Vogue Italia. They do Vogue, and then they make it better. Not only are the clothes the most detailed pieces I have seen in a long while, the stylised photography is to die for. This beautiful all white shoot was taken a few months ago now but on coming across it on my laptop I had to share it so you can all fall in love too.
