Street Style: Paris Fashion Week . . .

Desiderata . . .

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

Love: Cameo / the label . . .

Sick little video done for Cameo, an Australian brand I have recently fallen in love with. Everything they do is funky, fresh and beautiful. A unique combination indeed. Shop here. Do it. Now. 
Shout out to Sincerely Jules for showing me the light, that is Cameo. Check it here. I want that top. Badly.

9-5 . . .

It's official the 9-5 kills my creative mind, body, and soul. I took a casual 7 day position with the government that started last week. The first office job I've had in a year. I feel like the stail air becomes me. This is probably why the blog has been lacking any substance, which is frankly horrible. What kind of world would it be if every person abandoned their creativity, or their diversity to fall into societies 9-5? What kind of life would I create with no creative/artistic juice? No amount of money or steady paycheque should break us into something we are not meant to be. I hope I survive, along with my Jessie juices. Yes, my name is Jessie - for those of you who are unaware.

vibrant visual . . .

Everything about this image strikes me, the combination of colour, angles, the focus, shadows and the fact that it's a street style photo. Personal style caught in a beautiful composition, in the form of a photograph. Simple elegance with an edge - both the style and the photography. Documentation of a modern woman. Lovely . . .
