Dressing with...Piet Mondrian

Piet Mondrian,

Monsieur Mondrian like many artists had a love affair with the City of Lights, Paris. He also had quite the mustache: it was similar to his artwork in that it was simple, not over done, but not easily over looked either.

Piet Mondrian described his art work as "a search for beauty in it's most simple (honest) form"; line, shape and color. Don't all colors stem from the primary? And don't all shades and hues ride the slope of black and white? In a time where the population was trying desperately to recover from a world war, frivolity seemed like a fairytale: foreign, silly, and only for those refused to face reality. Mondrian wanted a simple world. A realistic world. But above all, he wanted a world where beauty could still exist, unspoilt. The world it seemed, had gone gray - and he wanted to add a bit of color.

Thank you for the warm welcome, Amber. Very happy to have joined the [well-stocked] ranks of your followers. The Pacific Northwest can seriously lack in style-- think of it as fleece country ;-) I am looking forward to hearing more about fashion when I visit your blog. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

These geometric styles make me happy. I don't wear them. I don't know why. I just don't? I'm stupid.
