I know that this post is about fashion, but when I was at the Hermitage last summer and saw that Cezanne I started hysterically laughing.  Like, the uncontrollable fit that only happens in the most inappropriate place at the most inane time, like on a tour of the Hermitage with my boyfriend and a couple from Australia.  Woman Seated in Blue is clearly Maggie Smith.  No?


  1. This is such a cool idea! Love Cezanne!

  2. It's totally Maggie Smith! I actually like every single piece you chose for the Young Italian Girl recreations, great inspiration! And your Polyvore title cracked me up!

  3. I love this idea! great outfits--art inspiring style, i like it!

  4. What a clever idea! Love the execution of this.

  5. I knew Maggie Smith was a vampire! IT WAS HER!! Just kidding! I love these types of posts! These were fashionable ladies and they probably had NO idea!! =)
