I know it’s been a few years since this film was first released, but it is definitely one of those films that you keep with you forever. When this film first came out, I was venturing more not the victorian/turn of the century aesthetic. I was more than enthralled by the films inspiration, the life of Lili Elbe and her wife, Gerda Wegener. Lili Elbe was the first transgender person to receive sex reassignment surgery. It’s been said the film is loosely based on Lili’s life, but its still an undeniably great film. For me personally, it also served as eternal eye candy and inspiration. The sets were so beautiful and authentic, to this day, I still use it as decor inspiration.

A true test of self awareness is constantly trying to update and better yourself, I’m never one to think ‘oh i have done everything I could do, so I must be done with life’ and upgrading your style is no exception. Madonna has become my most current style inspiration, she is a legend in every way but early 90’s Madonna really tugs at my vintage heart.

I think if I were to ever try and explain my personal style, it would have to be a mix of both a vintage goth vamp and a woodland barefoot fairy nymph(with some other elements of course)…now here we are, and designer Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior has somehow created this exact fantasy, down to the sheer bat masks(which I was just googling to try and make my own a week ago!) and gold snake necklaces, which is my current obsession.
I am actually resurrected by this collection, it has been a long time since I’ve given a damn about a fashion show but WOW if this isn’t an indication of the fashionable Spring that is to come(at least personally), what is? Also I love that this is a spring collection and there are lots of black, bugs, bats and snakes.
I meant to choose 4-5 of my favorite, but there were so many good ones!
