...Fashion makes what could be a mudane necessity of everyday life creative, exciting and interesting. Clothes are more to me than just clothes, they are a form of art. Our bodies are like canvas, and when we dress we make a picture in the world! Fashion and personal style for me are forms of self expression and escapism. How we dress is important whether we are choosing to dress to reveal or conceal parts of our personality. It is the way we wish the world to see us, so even if the intention is to dress for the latter it still give us hints to who people are. I love mixing high fashion with vintage. I don't just dress to look pretty and I'm quite experimental..I dress for myself and will wear anything as long as I like it even if others are not quite so sure. It's important that your happy!!

Crane












H&M skirt, Topshop lace bralet, panther printed bomber, suede slippers, snake earrings,  H&M tassel.

The doors throughout South Korea are beautiful. In my spare time I would walk through hidden back alleys searching for different ones to photograph. ( I have put a selection on pinterest here.)

This one was not far from the first place I was staying near Haengdang in Seoul. I would always see a little elderly Korean women along my way who would be as equally happy to see me each time. She couldn't speak a word of english and my Korean doesn't go far past general greetings and odd words but, we seemed to communicate somehow.

The white crane is said to symbolise spirituality and longevity, the deer with its beautiful appearance and mild temper, friendship and longevity and the pine trees also longevity. 

"Feathers are snow white but it could not be tainted with even mud. Males and females meet in 160 years, and as soon as they look into each other's eyes, they create a baby. They just drink for 1600 years but not eat. It is a king of birds and a wizard-like unworldly man rides on it." 

"As a red-crested white crane lives thousands of years, a pine tree does 10 thousand of years"
