Dear friend and soul sister Eliza Oldfield emailed me a few months ago insisting that I simply must meet a friend of hers, Maggie Orli, the creator of Bahgsu Jewels. Eliza tends to do this as lot, she has so many beautiful, dear friends all over the world and is always setting them up! I met with North Carolina born and raised Maggie while she was staying Byron and she was just luminous. It’s funny, because all of a sudden I knew what Eliza was talking about, I wanted to set her up with another one of my friends, she just has this energy about her.
I wanted to post this look book in celebration of Winter Solstice because it’s either the longest or the shortest day of the year, depending on which hemisphere you’re reading this from. I always love Winter Solstice because it means from here on in the days get longer and longer until Summer is Ripe! I hope you enjoy this gorgeous shoot, shot on location in the loving bosom of mother Byron.
