guys how good would it be if you could get a whole series of post impressionist dresses like this.
IMAGINE A “STARRY NIGHT” DRESS.
ALSO IMAGINE A DRESS WITH VAN GOGH’S PORTRAIT ON IT.
IT WOULD BE MY DRESS FOR WEEPING AND HAVING ~FEELING IN.
Think of the Gauguin skirts and the Signac scarves and the Seurat shoes and the Serusier EVERYTHING and OH MY GOD.

This exhibition - just… wow. Go see it. As soon as possible. It’s beautiful, chilling, and likely to be packed full of people until the second it closes (the Met announced via Facebook that in less than a week, more than 43,000 people had visited the exhibit. Forty three thousand.).
But seriously - I’ve seldom been more impressed by an exhibition of anything, anywhere, both in content and in execution. I liked the organization of the pieces into different strains of romanticism (even if the NYTimes didn’t), I loved the decision to play videos of his runway shows, and I LOVED the exhibition space.
I can’t wait to get my poster framed and hung as soon as possible.
Do you want some dude you've never heard of to tell you what's wrong with all your dresses? Are you not imprecisely annoyed enough this morning?
Augh WHY DID I READ THIS. Dear person who will never wear a dress: stop telling me how I should wear my dresses.
Uhh, this is adorable. Far better than jeggings or tuxedo shirts at bringing style back to comfort.
LOVE the idea of the brooch closure. I have a vaguely sweatshirty-blazer-shrug thing (articulate? Moi?) and I think I’m going to play around with this idea to dress it up and make it work-appropriate.
