Dark November days call for thick coats with spacious pockets to plunge cold hands in, nice knits, and good books.
From September to November, I only ever really want to dress like a land-girl. Earthy shades, cosy fabrics, mixed textures, utilitarian boots and lipsticked mouth.
Currently reading Camera Lucida by Roland Barthes. This is theory as you've never read it before. Poetic and poignant, everyone should read this reflection on photography.
"If I like a photograph, if it disturbs me, I linger over it. I scrutinize it, as if I wanted to know more about the thing or person it represents. Lost in the depths of the Winter Garden, my mother's face is vague, faded. In a first impulse I exclaimed: "There she is! She's really there! At last there she is!"...I want to outline the loved face by thought, to make it into a unique field of intense observation; I want to enlarge this face, in order to see it better, to understand it better, to know its truth."
