as mentioned earlier, this is christina from christina’s world. i’ve always been a fan of this painting because it makes me want to run around in a big old field. my grandparents used to keep a farm upstate with lots of space similar to this, there were toboggans in the winter and plenty of field frolicking in the spring and summer. christina probably isn’t the type to care too much about what she wears, she just needs it to be simple for hanging around the farm. think pastoral, think ralph lauren easy breezy dressing…a country hipster if you will…

did you know dracula was mormon? well…i mean he was a bigamist and had three wives, could’ve been on big love. anyway, his three wives lived in his castle with him and found it amusing to prey on his guests. now you may remember from some dracula posts a few weeks ago, that one of these guests was his lawyer, jonathan harker. while staying with the count, mr. harker got pretty familiar with these horrific vampire brides and they tortured him like crazies. think about it though, if you’re immortal…i bet you really hone your sense of style. hmmm…also, these brides would snap that bella bitch like a twig, LIKE A TWIG.

this is hippolyta, queen of the amazons. in greek mythology, the amazons were a tribe of warrior women who could out battle any gladiator, grecian army or spartan, ya heard? hippolyta was ordained queen by ares, the god of war and ran a tight ship among her tribe. her most famous encounter was with hercules as he’s performing the ninth of his twelve labors. hercules was instructed to retrieve the girdle of hippolyta and she being so intrigued by him decided to give it to him freely. meanwhile, back at the okay corral…hera (queen of the gods) was growing angry with hercules and disguised herself as an amazon to warn the tribe that hercules would kidnap their queen (as theseus had done before). in a panic, they stormed hercules’ ship to attack but feeling betrayed hercules killed hippolyta and narrowly escaped. too bad, hippolyta was way cool.

somebody had requested some posts from a midsummer night’s dream…so here we go. first up is titania, queen of the fairies. if you went to high school in america, you probably know the story so i’ll keep it short. titania is fighting with her husband oberon over a young boy she has adopted, he wants to use him as a soldier in his crew. meanwhile, four mortals from athens are running through the forest and whilst scheming to shame titania, oberon decides to mess with them too. of course, there are hilarious consequences. oh shakespeare. read it.

3: actually oberon, i love you: dress by vera wang, shoes by nina ricci
