These photos were taken before the earthquake. I still have a couple of outfit photoshoots in my archives that I have not posted. Will use them for the time being as I don't feel like dressing up or photoshooting quite yet. This is one more of black and white combinations that I don't find boring. The floral print of the skirt, the chiffon detail of the top in the shape of a flower (though not seen properly on the photos) and a floral decoration on the sandals make this ensemble rather cheerful and interesting.
A black velvet ribbon, mother-of-pearl earrings in the shape of a flower, black and white bracelets and a black onyx ring complete the look.
Black and white floral skirt - Roman's (quite old), top - Marc&Spenser, sandals - Anona, bracelets, ring, earrings - all from Nepal
Update on situation here. Life in Kathmandu is slowly returning to normalcy: people moved back to their houses instead of residing in tents, supermarkets are opened, fruits and vegetables bazaars work. It is interesting how at times like this a real nature of the person is revealed. While many people were volunteering and helping in any way they could, there were others as well: some were going from camp to camp spreading false rumours about another bigger quake, creating more panic; some were ravaging the remains of the old historical UNESCO Heritage sites. There was fighting over freely distributed tents; others were offering a place in their larger tents for 500 rupees (app.5$) per night or a plate of cooked rice for 100 rupees (app.1$, same price as 1 kg of uncooked rice). There were cases of robbery and burglary as well.
I don't feel quite normal yet. I mean, one moment I am eiphoric and happy, because I survived THE BIG ONE; then another moment I feel teary and depressed because of so much destruction around. But I guees it is normal not to feel normal for a while after such type of event.

Have a nice day!
