The Pre raphaelites










Kelly Marie and I went to see the "Beauty for beauty's sake" at the V&A
Which had an abundant of beautiful artork from the aesthetic movement..AKA Pre raphaelite paintings!
We not only wanted everything and to belong to this period
but we also came to the same conclusion about eachother:
 We bare  resemblance to many of the girls of the era!
A few days ago we found gold hair pieces that look esactly like the paintings...
We will be sporting these soon! ...

Both of you definitely look like you'd fit right into the exhibit, I like how you and Kelly Marie are wearing nature-inspired clothing, I adore your parasol and her purse. Your friend's hairdo reminds me of the late 19th Century Gibson Girls and also a blogger named Lauren who writes the Blooming Leopold blog!
