victorian victory or repulsive repeat?

 Because I am always inspired by fashion, I like my artwork to reflect the latest trends. But I also like my work to be timeless and classic. Toward the bottom of this post, you will find two examples of how my artwork can be inspired by fashion trends.  
  This pic was taken right before Beckett and I left for an orchestra concert this winter. Victorian, right? I thought so, hence the tea.

“In the Garden” by Edouard Manet, 1870, France

Watercolor painting called Monsieur-- available.

“Monsieur”– Watercolor– available

The painting called “Monsieur” was based on a J.Crew suit that I saw a few years ago while I lived in Sweden.  And can you guess the inspiration for the abstract painting called “Faux Pas?”

Anyway, that’s not the point of this post… the point is that I am currently in love with the Victorian trend that is happening right now. Yeah, another trend from history that is having a moment. I told my husband about the Victorian trend, and do you know what he said? He said, “wow these fashion people are not very creative.” lol

But I still like the look.

So here’s what I’m thinking, you pair a lacy skirt or at least  in a simple color with a embroidered, lace or high-neck blouse, add in some simple, but interesting jewelry— maybe a brooch (that can double as a hair clip… cough cough),– and you have yourself a great outfit!

Let me know in the comments below, are you loving the victorian thing, or will you leave it in the 19th century?
