Renee Perle: Eccentricity

What makes a muse? Why are some people able to inspire in another a lightning bold moment of brilliance, yet another does not? Inspiration is just like attraction wholy subjective, unable to be analysed. What excites one may leave another cold. Born in 1904 in Romania, little is known about Perle. Except that in 1930 […]

Adele Mildred: Requisite Vermillion

To call a woman ‘the most fabulous women in London’, is a lofty title. London is a wonderful city, full of whimsical artists who dance to their own rhythm. Pioneers who look inside out and upside down. So when I believe that I have found the aforementioned femme totale; I assure you she is breathtaking. […]

When ladies sought after these hats because they enjoyed them. When you enjoy something, and you have a visible spring in your step because you […]

Victor Noir: Enduring Arousal

For centuries women have turned to totems, inanimate objects to bring either love or a child. Nothing new there, one infamous source of feminine longing has a more unusual tale. At the famed Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris. Resting place for the likes of Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Edith Piaf, Honore de Balzac, Frederic Chopin, […]
