Dig it : Pre-Raphaelite babes

Detention To Detail

I was watching a documentary hosted by Andrew Lloyd Weber, who looks like he could be toad of Toad hall, the documentary was about Pre-Raphaelite painters and it was beautiful. I can’t believe it took me this many years to discover this style, because I can now see this movements influence in everything that’s happening in fashion right now. It’s such an indulgent-teenaged-girls-wet-dream style, reminds me of candles, tarot cards and diaries. Although I can see the tackiness and predictability in it, I dig it.
