The Beauty Remains

I always feel quite dramatic whenever I wear a skirt that falls past my knees--it doesn't help that everyone who knows me says something like "woah look at that skirt" when I do! Despite the Greek chorus to my sartorial choices I do get the desire for a longer skirt every now and then. I was watching Renoir the other night and swooning over the wardrobe design. Andree's first outfit in the film is stunning and I don't think I've ever coveted an Edwardian wardrobe more. Unfortunately, I don't have any Edwardian style clothes in my closet, but I can at least give my mini skirts a break for a day...

"Why shouldn’t art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world."
Pierre-Auguste Renoir
