your love is the smallest doll

Todays style mash-up includes 90s uma, Gotham Chic Dr Harleen Quinzel by ambird, a regency dandy with his sweetheart, surrealism art by Vladimir Kush, a Russian painter and sculptor and some lovely shots of one of my favourite bands: Agent Ribbons.

I have to admit I'm not a huge Uma fan, but if she was still a bit more like this I might be swayed. 

Ambird is an american artist who works with watercolours, she makes intriguing characters that I always admire. *Isn't it funny how artists began to use water colouring again fashion designers began to make prints like water colour. 

Regency era is/has aways/will always be one of my favourite eras.. mainly due to Jane Austen and John Keats

Kush is amazing, no? Back to my Eastern European love without even realising it. Get it realising it? Surrealism? Haha. Kush's work really captivates the beauty and the imagination of the sea. I think I also have a real soft spot for finding out about artist, writers who lived through communism and still managed to make incredible work. I will probably have more posts about this some time or another. 

Agent Ribbons, are an american "victorian punk" band have been around for several years. I feel greatly deprived in not having seen them play live. Natalie Gordon and Lauren Hess both have such vibrant personalities; reckless in a cute, playful way. 

I was wondering if there was any way to link my mash-up and it has occurred to me that they are all linked to what I feel falls under the third-wave/possibly fourth-wave feminists [feel free to disagree]. I feel that what young women of today are doing is looking back and appreciating the strength, yet the delicacy, of our ancestors had in their day to day life. Fashion is such a huge part of women because it was one of the only freedoms women had in history. The love of the arts shine through all aspects of women in history. 

*This is why I will post pictures of art/anything else because everything in society inter-connects [just incase you were curious].
