La femme nue de la bibliothèque
On reserve until October 24th
This one is also offered in size 0
So it turns out that I only have so much willpower, and this went up for limited sale AGAIN on the Juliette et Justine website…. so I bought it.
I blame Cupcake and Tea for looking so fantastic in this dress at Anime North and thus destroying the last scraps of my resistance!
Painting on the new dress by Juliette et Justine is The Knight’s Dream by Antonio de Pereda
The original painting is in collection at the Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, in Madrid Spain. For those who might want to go visit the painting while wearing the dress :)
Juliette et Justine Vanitas Premium Onepiece is based on Memento Mori and Vanitas. Paintings used are Vanitas, by Dutch painter Aelbert Jansz van der Schoor and the religious painting, Agnus Dei, by Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbaran.
Memento Mori, Latin for ‘remember that you will die’, was an artistic or symbolic reminder of the inevitability of death.
Vanitas is a type of symbolic work of art especially associated with still life paintings in Flanders and the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th centuries, though also common in other places and periods. The Latin word means “vanity” and loosely translated corresponds to the meaninglessness of earthly life and the transient nature of all earthly goods and pursuits.
Thanks to jefumejeboisjebaise for help in identifying the artists and paintings!
The van der Schoor piece is in the collection at the RijksMuseum in Amsterdam; the de Zubaran painting is housed at the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain.
Quick coordinate from yesterday for dumplings with friends! The hairstyle uses a fake braid that’s a surprisingly good match for my own hair color, although I think next time I will balance out the framing flowers better (the colors are more off than I’d noticed when getting ready).
Dress: Juliette et Justine, Blouse: Dear Celine, Bag: Meta, Shoes: Fluevog
Finally done this set! I put up preorders over on storenvy for these charms, and I’ll also be bringing them to rufflecon~
Each charm is on metalic gold acrylic so I designed the coordinates to have some of the gold show through.
I have the top two already but I need to get them all!
