she's is a full-on monet.

Follow on Bloglovin

As coined in the iconic 90's film Clueless (more on that another time, I pinky promise), a "full-on Monet" draws its inspiration from painter Claude Monet's impressionist narrative, namely his ephemeral flower and water gardens of Giverney.  


Lets not cut Claude's accolades short, he did way more for impressionism than a dewy lily-pad.  Take a look at Camille Doncieux, long-time muse and first wife of Monet, a dark haired siren from a wealthy family who fell in love with a financially unstable and philandering painter at age 18.  Sound familiar?  Yes, I was also once eighteen.

Everyone, say hello to Ms. Doncieux:



While the point here is to make the stylizing in famous paintings contemporary, that is also for people who are boring and ugly and serious.  The real take away is that even if your poor husband cheats on you (gross), is indebted to your father (maj turn-off) and doesn't gain a shred of recognition until long after your tragic death (double yikes), you can still look fierce when you pose for his impressionist paintings.  

Kudos Camille.  
Lets take a page from her style file, not her dance card:
