Wouldn’t It Be Fun…?

🌈 🖌️👗 HI SISTERS! OUR FRIEND JUDITH TEACHES HOW WE CAN WEAR ART & FASHION AT TIME.

Artistcoveries

Earlier this month, as part of Joy Ting’s “daily practice” with watercolor — Color Play: Watercolor — I did an overall “leaf doodle” design.  This is the sort of art project I have problems with, although I’m getting better. The idea, you can quickly see, is to cover the entire page with various leaves. I’ve also done similar projects using a variety of different flowers.

Although this looks like a simple project, it actually involves several different aspects of art:

  • At least some drawing skill is required. Even though the leaves or flowers aren’t meant to be too realistic, we need to have the ability to get the shapes approximately right.
  • We need some understanding of color schemes in order to create a pleasing piece.
  • We also need a little knowledge about the medium we’re using.

In addition, there are some design principles involved.

  • How do we lay-out all the…

DRESSY SWEATER JACKET FROM THE EARLY 1960’S

🎨 HELLO SUGARS! AS YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE CLASSIC COLORS IN ART IS YELLOW OCHER. TODAY WE CAN ENJOY THIS COLOR, ADMIRING THIS FABULOUS JACKET.

Magicvintagespy

Heavy sweater “wraps” have been on the scene at least since the 1940’s, according to my closet, but have always seemed sidelined from the fashion spotlight. Lighter-weight beaded cardigans have certainly had their day in the vintage clothing spotlight but their more substantial sisters often go unnoticed. With furs, satin and velvet taking center state for evening and other dressy occasions, elegant garments like this one have gotten less attention – especially during the early mid-century. However, this seems to have become less true in the 1960’s and 1970’s, when heavy knits came into mainstream fashion again.

The jacket above belonged to my mother – a perfect fit for me which I’d like to keep. Alas, bright yellow is NOT my color so it’s another item which will be moved on. Made by the label Banff, the quality is unmistakable and lasting. As those of you who’ve followed me know…

Marianne Stokes: Madonna (c.1909)

✴️ HELLO SISTERS! SOMETIMES TO DEPICT SOME MADONNAS, ART USED EXQUISITE GARMENTS, AS MARIANNE DID IN HER WORK.

At Sunnyside - Where Truth and Beauty Meet

Marianne Stokes, Madonna, c.1909, oil on canvas, Wolverhampton Art Gallery

“Many painters have drawn the Virgin Mary and Jesus and it was a particularly popular theme with Italian artists from the Renaissance period. However, most portraits depict the virgin looking at her child. In this picture, she looks up and introduces her young child to the viewer. Across the background are patterned thorny tendrils and wild parsley. These are symbols of the pain and sorrows of motherhood and a warning of the crown of thorns that the Jesus wore as a man. This work was painted at Ragusa in Italy and the model was a young Italian girl from the town.”

Pacte

🕊️ SO TRUE, LOVELIES. SOMETIMES THE SUITABLE DRESS IS WITH WINGS ONE.

Art et Semence

Le berceau de notre amitié,
Nos paroles confidentes,
L’alcôve de notre pacte.

Ai-je jamais su vivre autre que le tissage indélébile de nos discours, lors que Tu atteignis mon cœur et qu’il devint le chant de l’aurore ? Saurais-je vivre autre chose que notre relation et notre Royaume premier ? Ô douceur qui étreint mon âme aux suées de mes larmes. Je T’en prie, ne jamais nous prive de Ton Regard.C’est du monde que je me perds et c’est de Toi que je trouve. Celui qui n’a pas goûté à cette folie, peut-il comprendre, Ô dis-moi ?

Graphic design 4 – Module 2 – Lesson Task 2.4

💆‍♀️ TRUE SISTERS. THE CONCEPT OF “FASHION” HAD NOT YET ARRIVED, BUT ELISABETH LIKED THAT THE WOMEN IN HER WORKS WEAR A HEADDRESS.

Elisabeth SONREL https://www.catherinelarosepoesiaearte.com/

I choose to write about Élisabeth Sonrel, a Art Nouveau painter from France. She was the daughter of the painter Nicolas Stéphane Sonrel and attended art school Ecole des Beaux-Arts and received prices for her paintings. After her studies she spend a lot of time on the northern coast of France and settled down in La Baule in the 1930s. She painted with watercolors and gouache. She painted young girls in the area and did mostly allegorical subjects, mysticism, symbolism, portraits, and landscapes.

The Death of the Fashion Show?

😺👢👠👡🥾🥿 HI SISTERS! TRADITIONAL CATWALKS ARE STILL WIDELY USED, THEY HAVE BEEN CRITICISED FOR BEING EXCLUSIONARY, ELITIST AND OUT-OF-TOUCH WITH THE CHANGING TIMES, ENCOURAGING WASTE AND MASS CONSUMERISM TO TOP IT OFF.

Marianna Michael

The fashion show has been a mainstay of the industry for decades the spectacle that combines high fashion and innovative space design has been an event that can draw hundreds of thousands of eyes from around the world whilst a select few sit at the epicentre of exhibition. But what happens when these lavish displays are seemingly no longer relevant?

Fashion shows were the ultimate experience for designers, buyers and consumers. They were a chance to show off the latest trends and fabrics in front of an audience that mattered most—the buyers; thus, forming a gateway for magazines, later blogs and then influencers, providing the gap between catwalk and consumer. But over the past few years, with an explosion of the Metaverse on the industry combined with growing concerns surrounding sustainability and changes in consumer behaviour, one big question comes to mind—is the fashion show dead?

A Fashion Feast of Blazers, New Cinnamon Roll Buns and Rob Zombie Shirt

💄👌🏻 INDEED SISTERS, WE LIKE PEOPLE WHO DRESS AND HAIR, WITH THEIR OWN STYLE, LIKE SAMANTHA.

The Big Hair Diaries

First off, I want to give a shoutout to my black tights. They add a good contrast against my outfits (and in this case – my shoes featured in this post!)

The blazers are another item from my closet I haven’t worn in awhile. 😊

Another honorable mention goes out to my HAIR BUNS. These are freshly-created ones I made that remind me of the mini cinnamon rolls you can buy in those plastic containers at the grocery store, while the previous ones I wore were more like those fluffy Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. Both are fun, I just happen to really like these at the moment!

Shoes: Dolls Kill / My Melody Clips: Amazon / Bracelets: Childhood

I really liked the blue tones of this outfit. 💙

Next…red!!! ❤️

Shoes: Dolls Kill / Unicorn Hair Clips: Dollar Tree

And now!!! The one! The only! ROB ZOMBIE!!! 💚

A Look Back at Stockings, Mostly 1920’s

🦵🏻HI SUGARS! LET’S THINK HOW WEARING STOCKINGS HAS TWO VERY USUAL EFFECTS LIKE IN PAINTING AND WATERCOLOR WORKS: GLOSSY AND TRANSPARENCY.

witness2fashion

[While I’m on vacation, I’m running a series of images with links to many old witness2fashion posts. Here’s a selection of articles sharing what I learned about stockings.]

Colored and textured tights were popular in the 1960’s, but brightly colored stockings and textured stockings were also worn in the 1920’s. [For further readings about stockings, rolled stockings, etc., links to earlier posts are provided throughout this one.]

Orange silk stockings match the orange skirt in this ad for Holeproof Hosiery. Delineator, October 1925.

Textured stockings were also worn  with Twenties’ sportswear:

Many manufacturers offered styles intended to make ankles look slim, or just to attract attention to the leg.
