I have loved this photo shoot for years,
it if from ELLE 2005
photos and style by the greatest stylist of all times
Charlyne Cherf de Duzeele
I have been inspired by her so many times,
these outfits are truly timeless.
The sandals, the maxi dresses, the hobo hat, the staw bag...

Everything perfect,
