“Walking on high heels, soaking up life”

The Eye HasTo Travel

Since having seen the movie about Diana Vreeland, am obsessed with her flamboyant allure and personality. And what better to do on a grey Sunday than dig into a world full of glitz, glam, and outstanding visions. Helps to distract from other Sunday options (aka FINALLY doing the laundry) too. Having left her mark as the first fashion editor of all time, am now studying all her covers for Harpers Bazar and Vogue - which she branded forever as mirror of fashion reflecting the Zeitgeist ("You can see the approaching revolution in clothes. You can see everything in clothes"). Loving it! Am tempted to jot down all her quotes: no, even better, print them in huge letters and hang them over bed: "You gotta have style. It helps you to get up in the morning. It's a way of life. Without it you are nobody."

And (sorry, couldn't help but replace the word "dress" with "shoe": but BOTH are so right): "A new shoe doesn't get you anywhere. It's the life you are living in the shoe and the sort of life you had lived before and what you will do in it later." And that from a lady who claimed (also VERY inspiring haha!): "I'm never dressed until lunch".

Ah, Mrs. Vreeland thank you so much for today's inspiration. Now will never again leave the house without sporting couture, ladylike gloves, satin slippers and an attitude.
