Remember this name: Ron Hicks. This middle-aged artist grew up in Ohio and attended classes at the Columbus College of Art and Design on scholarship. Eventually he moved West and graduated from the Colorado Institute of Art and also worked as a freelance illustrator for a while. I am smitten with his beautifully impressionist and emotionally charged paintings - the figures, the interiors, the shapes, the muted pallette, the moody atmospheric tone... The layers of emotion unravelled by brushstrokes make me wonder what's the story behind the painting.

I haven't had the time to update this blog properly. I am always working and the only day off I have is usually meant to be spent resting, sleeping and eating without being in a hurry. No outfit posts so far because: a) I look terrible with this panda-like dark circles and b) I can't be bothered with playing dress up when it's so hot outside. I envy those who are lucky enough to be on holidays right now.

My, my! This playsuit is everything I've ever wanted.
These burger socks are so cool!
These have to be the prettiest embroided animals I've ever seen.
Take me to this place right now.
How about some abstract oil paintings of oceanscapes?
I really like the girl in this photo.
Lest we forget the women of the Mexican Revolution aka Las Soldaderas.

LUSH products have been my latest obsession.
I'm in love with these two here. Which do you prefer?
A nocturnal shot I snapped at some club - JJ and the Dan The Dane.

For those who have never heard of her, let me introduce you to Audrey... Not Hepburn, not Tautou... It's Audrey Horne and her killer sense of style. I fell in love with this fictional character and her wardrobe the moment I started watching Twin Peaks. Played by Sherilyn Fenn, Audrey is the girl who puts the chic in the schoolgirl chic. Cool, stylish and seductively charming, Miss Horne pulls off an 1950s-inspired silhouette and sense of style like no other student at Twin Peaks High School. Exuding attitude and a femme fatale-like allure yet feeling vulnerable about the fact that she's madly in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (who wouldn't?), Audrey is the bad girl gone good, affection deprived (her father runs a brothel and ignores his own daughter) and hiding behind a mask of coquette confidence. From saddle shoes to red pumps, vintage sweaters paired with pleated plaid midi skirts or high waisted pencil skirts, retro cardigans... Not to mention those feline eyebrows! David Lynch has created many inspiringly unforgettable female characters loaded with charisma and charm... and this one proves it right.
