THREE MUSES 89 - QUOTATIONS


Bev is our host at the Three Muses this week and she has asked us to create a piece of art that includes a quotation.  I liked the quotation : Fashion is something that goes in one year and out the other.   Oh so true!   I thought these very fashionable ladies of the 1920s illustrated the  quote  to a T.

Credit to Clearly Vintage for the ladies, whilst the backgrounds are courtesy of the very talented PlayingWithBrushes.  The font is Mayfield.

Thank you so much for looking.

Whoohoo! The elegance, the condescension! I love your languid ladies, Ann, and the quote is fantastic. I don't think I have ever come across it before. It is a very clever play on words.

Great work!

The quote is great, but you have to agree: the twenties were a very elegant period. Love your ladies.

Strange - fashion quotes have been on my mind lately (fashion quotes - I'm not pimping these just thought it was a coincidence!)
I love this though. I was watching Boardwalk Empire yesterday and one of the characters was flicking through a 1920s copy of Vogue - so beautiful.

A very stylish piece of artwork, Ann - it's a pity the quote is true!!!
