August.

They say one of the best ways to spend time is to spend it appreciatively, slowly, with friends. How inarguable a statement that is! Last month I managed to catch up with Rachel and Mae-Z—two of my wonderful friends—over brunch at a cafe in town (as cliché or hipster-wannabe as 'cafe brunches on weekend mornings' may sound, I still love every bit of the idea! Even the sound of it is so appealing. Truly, most cafes do live up to their purpose of providing solace to us busybees who seldom have time for much besides work or studies or other 'more important' things that demand our constant attention. That, of course, is only my frank opinion.). Just like every other good catch-up, detailed updates on personal life were narrated and hilarious high school moments relived, inducing much hearty laughter. Thereafter around that area we had an outdoor shoot, chiefly meant to showcase their clothing (after months of Rachel reminding me time and again of her need for a fashion shoot heh). Not surprising, as these two have always been the fashionistas of our class back in high school. Here Rachel is dressed all Boho-goddess as usual and Mae-Z's whole outfit is from Japan! I have to say I'm extremely pleased with the outcome of this shoot; I seldom feel very satisfied with my photos so this is a welcome change to get my motivation back on track! Huge thanks to the both of them for perfecting this shoot!! Much love xx
I absolutely LOVE the grey backdrop in these next few shots; creates such a 'Seoul Fashion Week' feel!  Don't mind me and my fantasies. If I ever do get to take photos at a Seoul Fashion Week though, I think I'd be so thoroughly enraptured I wouldn't need cafes for a whole month or perhaps even two months!!
I understand fully that this is a photography blog, not a fashion blog, but this IS a 'fashion shoot', so I suppose a brands listing is only mandatory. :) Here goes!
