Society is always and forever trying to saturate us with their unrealistic ideas of beauty. Always. It’s so uninspiring to constantly have those images thrown in our faces.

I’ve always been kind of a people watcher, and I can’t enough of other people’s personal style. This night I saw such an eclectic mix of fashion and it was awesome!
Looking stunning as ever, model Clementine Desseaux is featured in IGIGI’s new campaign for their “Into the Blue” collection.
