Dress – MGSM, Shoes – Casadei, Jacket – Burberry Brit, Rings – Sardo; Makeup by MAC Cosmetics

First StyleLab outfit of Luisa Via Roma’s Firenze4Ever, featuring the worth of mother + brother + this London flat that I don’t even own in garments & accessories. Funny thing is it doesn’t even make you feel more glamorous or particularly important… anywho. At one point during the shoot there was a man with a puffy red jacket that kept peering through the opposite window of the car and the hubby finally yelled HOLY MOZZARELLA, MAN, WOULD YOU PLEASE MOVE at which point I yelled back at him BUT YOU TOLD ME NOT TO MOVE WHEN YOU’RE TAKING BAJILLION YEARS FOCUSING. And of course, while we were bickering the man eventually buggered off to take photos of a naked statue and chuck gelato at pigeons and such…

Thank you Yosi for your assistance and my dear hubby for helping with the photos.

    Oh thank you! Most of it’s actually thanks to post-production, I used my usual 50mm lens! Settings…don’t really remember, every shot is different depending on the light available and such – would depend on which lens you’re using too!

  20. These images are the perfect complement for your outfit – the streets, vaguely utilitarian wood and tires of the car with the leather, the sumptuous red bits (car, velvet rope, and your lips and nails) and the soft, fluttery details – the birds from the bridge, the Christmas lights hanging in the street, your twinkly rings, and of course the dress. Gorgeous combinations, all! I read your blog all the time, but these images really stood out for me. (Apparently enough to inspire my shy self to comment, wow!)

    Thanks again for sharing your fabulous work!

  21. Why would he waste perfectly good gelato on pigeons!? That is the true crime of this tale.

    Ha ha, you look gorgeous though. I feel I must reiterate all thoughts concerning your resemblance to a doll. Gosh, your skin is so flawless it may as well be porcelain.

  33. ha, your stories always make me laugh, the guy in the red puffa jacket :)

    & your photos continue to amaze me, no.s 1 & 4 are so beautiful in particular, they could be watercolour paintings from the early 20th century!

    looking forward to some London spring weather in a few months, i have a similar (but probably tons cheaper, haha!) brown leather jacket which is the perfect partner for many a summer dress..

  60. The first photograph is absolutely gorgeous– it feels so calming and almost like a painting. I like the pop of colour in your outfit from the vibrant red heels. Thanks for sharing these great photographs (they came out stunning!) and for sharing the little story; I love hearing your stories behind your photograph adventures!
