Shine On


Letting go, weeding out, detoxing… lifting the clutter, debunking the mess. While color and chaos have their own rightful beauty and poignancy, simple… simple is full of power. It allows your soul to shine on through it all.

Simplicity. She is strong. She is elegant. She is full of ease and grace, of confidence and perseverance. It’s no easy task- to master the practice of simplicity- but when we do… we realize that simplicity does not simply mean “simple.” Oh no. Au contraire. Quite the opposite my friends. It embodies supreme sophistication, true excellence, beauty stripped down to its truest form. We see the real, we feel the raw… and we are then able to proceed with the shine of our own worth and intellect. Without distraction, we are left with life’s truest character… honesty.

Black and whites with bits of shine, specs of embroidered details woven sparingly like the lines of life in the palms of your hands. Inspired by the music season ahead; we wanted to reveal the naked beauty of black and whites, of going as who you are… Strip down to the basics this time round. Move in the direction of self-pursuit;. what you desire, how you feel, what excites you, where you will go and who you will take.

To all of you beauties reading this… strip down to the essentials and shine on, brighter than ever before.

“Purity and simplicity are the two wings with which man soars above the earth and all temporary nature.” –Thomas Kempis

Love the tasseled kimono, the jumper in the second to last picture and the hat! Shame they’re most definitely not things I can afford.

I love simplicity. It makes everything so much more clear & vibrant when you decide what is really important to you and clear out the rest of the “stuff”. Clearing out the things that don’t really matter, things that you don’t need, things that you could easily live without. I think that life is more joyful, pure and real when you are focused on what’s important to you, what rings true. Just a few of my thoughts on simplicity.
