Purple Reign

I finally got round to scanning this editorial photographed by Corrie Cond for Marie Claire au March 2010. The stylist is Kate Harrowsmith and the model is Daria. It was taken at Grafton during their Jacaranda Festival ... I think it's really sweet they used some of the townspeople as extras in some shots.

enjoy



























A big Welcome to new friends & readers of DJA,

Dear Deej,
I hope that you have forgiven me for my rant about you-know-who !! haha
This is beautiful. Lilacy purple is such a wonderful colour, isn't it?
Shoes, jackets, hats, socks, ring, eyeshadow, dresses, bag and ice cream all in that delicious colour. Brilliant photographs and beautiful surroundings. XXXX

DJ,
First I am coming to AU, when the Jacaranda are blooming, and you must take me here. Much like the cherry blossoms of our south, this is breathtaking. The violets of this post are amazing, each of them. Fashion fun, this post is, and now on my DJ favorite list. I think each and every post is on that list. The model here is striking. PS I will always share with you. Thanks for such a sweet comment, a little soul searching before the day, and a lot of stalking the Blahniks. Gotta have them, I have read today MB will come out with a similar pair in May 2010.
