obsessed with bloomsbury, I am.

It’s not catastrophes, murders, deaths, diseases, that age and kill us; it’s the way people look and laugh, and run up the steps of omnibuses. – Virginia Woolf

1. these violet flowers looks like it was taken directly from vanessa’s painting; 2. this mustard is the color of vanessa’s kitchen; 3. morbid but…this coat reminds me of how virginia woolf killed her self, [put stones in a long jacket and walked into a river] 4. more american inter-war period but still deco, this color reminds me of daisy buchanan from the great gastby.
