She also had to have a theme and a story for the editorial. The theme was supposed to be safari, but you know how us girls tend to get carried away with pretty clothing... needless to say, not everything abided by this strict theme. I think the end "story" for this editorial was decided on "City girl goes on safari"... you know, that old folk tale. So here I present to you the final photos, along with my rendition of that classic fable... condensed version.
