Monday inspirations from director/video artist Alexa Karolinski.
I've been in a kaftan craze this summer and this one from Swedish brand Rodebjer is well up on my covet list. Beautiful print and the most perfect back detail.
Perfect Friday sounds!
These beauties are minimalistic perfection. I've had my eye on the grey ones for ages!

Blown out and barely alive.
Lucky to have people who give me amazing music recommendations. x
Jin Yeo's series on Korean women post-plastic surgery is a study of the bruises and bandages behind this oft unseen side of the beauty industry.
The uniquely determined lengths women will go to achieve a certain standard of beauty in Korea (and China and Japan) has always been fascinating to me.

I'm not normally one for whimsy, but there's something so gorgeous about this very feminine collection. I'd wear all of these pieces, frolic around and pray for endless summers. My absolute favorite is the Tabernacle Dress, pictured above.
