My latest girl crush comes in the form of 23 year old artist/model Charmaine Olivia. In the inner sanctum of her San Francisco studio Charmaine creates her works in oil and ink, from which dark muses appear.
Rainbow haired, horned or bedecked in swathes of feathers and flowers; there is always more than a hint of the otherwordly about her beautiful subjects. With her penchant for delicate lace lingerie and her very own more permanent body art and shock of dark hair she could easily pass for one of the esoteric females she paints.
Check out her website for more beautiful photos of her work and herself or follow her on Instagram @charmaineolivia to share in daily doses of inspiration from her life and studio.

So after much procrastinating and some discussion I have something new to show on the blog today in the form of the above 'Outfit of the Day'/ editorial!
It was seriously warm on the day we happened to shoot these which meant I lost the will to be photographed after about an hour of running around in the blazing sun... despite this I think we still managed to get some good shots, which was in no small part down the patience of the photographer. Anyway I hope you enjoy our little collaboration.
