Death Through War

Post WW1&2 Impressionist Otto Dix created paintings that grotesquely depicted the horror and brutality of war. During WW1 he volunteered for the German Army and was sent to the trenches. He has said he was plagued by nightmares for the rest of life because of what he did during the war. Using mostly soldiers and prostitutes as his subjects he showed society and the perverse effects war has upon it.

While his style may be distorted, I still find great beauty in the use of colors and underlying emotion in his paintings. He truly translated his view of the world into very inspiring and moving pieces.

"I have to experience all the ghastly, bottomless depths for life for myself; it's for that reason that I went to war, and for that reason I volunteered."

Dark Beauty

As the seasons change I find that I love switching up my beauty routine almost as much as my wardrobe! Usually when it comes to beauty I am a "less is more" kinda gal, but with this season's dramatic silhouettes there's got to be a little more drama on my face as well.

As a brunette myself, I am always drawn to dark, sultry features. Anna Karina is a perfect beauty muse because of her striking beauty and thick wonderful hair. Okay okay, I'll stop talking about how hot she is and move on with the pictures....

Now I'm off to my first tattoo consultation appointment (!!!). More to come on this soon.


I Got the Blues.

It feels nice that my life is finally settling into a routine again. I always embrace change, but I will also admit it does frazzle me when it comes on all at once...

On a lighter note, plaid is not just for flannel anymore. Hooray for sheer anything!




wearing: AA chiffon button up, cheap monday jeans, thrifted belt & necklace, F21 oxfords.


School Sexy.

So the act of moving apartments, starting another semester of school, and a surprise corporate visit at my job has left me with very little blogging time. I promise this blog will be back to regularly scheduled programming very soon. Till then, here's some Proenza Schouler FW10 to tide you over.
Sheer shirts under dangerously deep dresses, crop tops over mesh, and a chunky sweater over an oxford...meow.
