Chemise à la Theme Week: mardi (belated)

hey kids! yes I know what day it is…the dumb WordPress ap gives Us the illusion that a post has published. I check a day later and it’s a draft! errr…well, at least it saved the draft.

two more fine examples of nymphs in gaulle…


I haven’t got the citation, sor’!

this next one’s my personal fav of Mme. LeBrun. We lack certain facts…I sense a theme
A theme for theme week! the layers, they’re like onions!


There’s something about the girl in this painting that reminds me of me…it’s weird. It’s just a thing. Nobody would say we look alike. Nameless lady and me. And the last one for tonight:


The chemise fashion plate from the Journal des modes; I believe it was the first such publication. Okay, petit pixies of Trianon…May your evening be gossammer with starlight*
