Slim Aarons: Once Upon a Time

My best friend and fellow fashion expert, Kelsey, gave me a book a year or two ago filled with the work of a photographer named Slim Aarons. I had not heard of him at the time, but have since recognized his work everywhere. He is known for capturing the rich, royal, and famous in fabulous places. Most of his work that I love is shot in the 50s and 60s. It almost has a Great Gatsby feel to it. His book is called Once Upon a Time and I highly recommend it both for enjoyment and it looks great on a coffee table!
