Beauty and Sorrow

beauty and sorrowI was roaming around the woods yesterday afternoon darling. Donning my long lanvin dress, I walked for an immeasurable time, thinking about my days spent in the village when I came upon a river that was clogged with countless swans.

They were tumbling in a huddle of white weariness. There was so much pallor in that river, so much beauty, so much sadness. It was a concentrated moment of beauty and sorrow. It felt like I was witnessing the beauty of the world trailing off the river uncontrollably.

We are losing so much beauty and there is so much sorrow in the world darling. Beauty and sorrow, beauty and sorrow, more beautiful words have never been uttered.

Chasing shadows

SophieSrejMarieClaireItalia7Sometimes I feel like I am chasing the shadows of butterflies darling, feeling as far away from what is real. I am never quite sure whether it is a bad thing or not. What I do know is that it is only when I do so that I forget about shoulds and oughts and manage to see that which I want to see.

The Backless dress

Backless dressEvery time I wear a backless dress I am reminded of Poe darling — Edgar Allen, that is.

“What brings you here Mr Poe?”

“This dress Madeliene Rose, you are asking for the chills.” Continue reading

Ride

You know how it is, when you feel like you can never go back to the simple way things were, so you find yourself running around every other corner of the world and avoiding the only niche you know you need.

This summer…

this summer vogue chinaThis summer darling, make time for a siesta under jasmine trees while donning light white dresses.

Find the time to float amid water lilies while looking at the stars.

Make sure you meet Galileo to witness shooting stars together.

Stand under a shower of paper rain and be in awe of every firework show in sight.

Find the time to wear short shorts and to fall in love

…and dance barefoot to Lana del Rey under frescoes.

Make this summer, one of immeasurable time.
