Well I finally found a blog layout I really love. For a while I was entertaining the idea that I would design my own, but no I do not have the patience for that. But I really love this one. I want a clean space for images and thoughts. I want to start writing more. Talk about art and film and fashion instead of just visually showing what interests me. Time to use your words, Jenna. These are some self-portraits I recently took. Naturally, I needed some moons and stars.
I've been trying to figure out why I photograph myself and my friends in veils so often. Then I found this quote on Vogue's facebook: "What is the appeal of a veil? 'It turns a pretty woman,' Vogue wrote in 1917, 'into a siren.'" And there ya go. I love the mystery and the transformative nature of just one sheer piece of fabric over my face. It's like a superhero's mask, but I still wanna show off my rad makeup, duh.

  3. These are beautiful. I think veils add a mysterious vibe to a woman, and it makes her more interesting.

  5. ooh, i'm really liking the new layout. and these photos are gorgeous. i love that vogue quote and think a veil really can add such a layer of mystery to someone and their outfit! kind of makes someone not as available as well, by literally adding a screen between the person and the rest of the world, you know? xx
