NOSTALGIA is when you look back and feel an old familiar happiness. Those memories aren’t always real. Sometimes, the flashbacks are fabricated and might not be what you really experienced.
I worked with Photographer, Bishoppe Kamusinga to compile a lookbook of three styles that make me feel nostalgic. Each of these looks are so classic to me. I love the fun patterns, the burnt orange tones, and the free spirited mood of this shoot. I hope every image and poetic line takes you to a different place, somewhere nostalgic.
Look #1: 70’s Chic
I want to let go, but I keep hanging on.

Never enough time, but always enough time for you to cross my mind.
The sun gleaming against my skin. For a second, it feels inspiriting, and then the hot memory of you burns my skin.
I wake up everyday and think “Today is the day, I will finally forget all the good times with you.”
I wish it was that easy.
I wish I could truly control my mind.
No matter how much I distract myself, the thoughts, the memories, the nostalgia, always pulls me back.
Look #2 Free Spirited Fashion

You left me broken.
It still feels like a nightmare.
Look #3 Dated Dress
A nightmare that repeats every single night.
You left me no other choice, but to say goodbye.
Goodbye to our dreams, goodbye to the nightmares.
Goodbye to the
Hello to new memories, a new mindfulness. A life without you filling the spaces in my head and my heart.
