Beauty Comes From Within!

It really really really does (really) – and I mean that so sincerely. I spotted Laksmi in Nolita…and while she has outer beauty as well…and I love her outfit…it really all started with that smile. I mean how could I not shoot her photo?! Look at her! (OK well she doesn’t look quite as happy in the full-length photo hehe…but I wanted to include that so that you could see her entire outfit…but the top photo, look at the top photo!)

I meet beautiful and stylish girls all the time (rough life I know)…some of whom are, shall we say, “personality challenged”…but…the girls that I always want to shoot…and the girls that I always want to talk to and get to know better are the sweethearts…the kind ones…the genuine ones…the ones who have not only beauty on the outside but who radiate it from within as well! “Beauty comes from within” is not a backhanded compliment – it’s a mantra that you should repeat to yourself as you leave your house every morning. It’s a way of living. All the frowny faced, too cool for school, playin’ a role, Grumpy McDumpies can keep on walkin’ when Mr. Newton’s on the beat! xo

  1. It is good to read your words on a saying that is used over and over again and is not very sincere.

  2. Hi Joy – I think it’s a saying that needs to be reclaimed and have sincerity attached to it again.

  3. totally right! gorgeous smile, and cute outfit – and the pop of pink is a great colour relief

  4. Great post! Just found your blog and love it. I find that I always gravitate to photos on street-style websites where someone has a huge smile and looks genuinely happy. It’s their personality that shines, and it just makes their clothes look that much better.

  6. Thank you for reminding us that real style begins with a positive attitude!

  7. If we all try to have a positive attitude and share smiles, it just might brighten the day of others. Thanks for reminding all of us, especially at this joyous time of year, to remember that outer beauty is much enhanced by inner beauty. I love your website all year round!
