The Last HurrahPosted: March 19, 2012
Just when the rest of the country is having a warm spell, LA suddenly dropped its temperature. Warm weather is too mainstream, I guess 😛 Not that I’m complaining – the rain was great, and it let me wear my fall/winter colors for a little bit longer. Only the wind aggravates my allergy again.
I watched Mona Lisa Smile again over the weekend. The movie is just OK, but I do like the costumes – hence the outfit. And I didn’t even remember that John Slattery (Roger from Mad Men) was in it. The guy cannot escape that era!
Also, it’s my turn to pick a painting for Style Imitating Art again, and my choice is Playing Hide and Seek by Chihiro Iwasaki, a Japanese artist and illustrator:
I know technically she wasn’t a classical artist, but she’s a personal favorite, since she was the illustrator of Totto-chan: The Little Girl At The Window, one of my favorite books. Her watercolors seem to encapsulate childhood itself, and the colors in this one is especially beautiful. I can’t wait! And remember, if you want to join in, just send me a photo of your outfit before Sunday night.
