DE-LOVELY: Rodin, The Kiss (ABOVE) & Fragonard, The Stolen Kiss (BELOW)
XOXO to my dress, romantic art, summer nights. Rodin's marble Kiss depicts a pair of tragic lovers from Dante's epic poem, Divine Comedy, their mouths never meeting in Inferno. Fragonard painted a series of embraces; this one tactilely emphasizes texture & fabric: glistening silk, transparent scarf, patterned lace.
Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti dress (last worn HERE). Vintage jewelry & Morris Moskowitz bag. Manolo Blahnik 'Hangisi' shoes.
My frock's sweet lips with racy back sing of sentimental mood. Accessorized with sapphire jewels: 1970s purse (label identifies it as sold at Saks Fifth Ave) & satin skimmers crowned with silver filigree buckles.
