Irreverence is Style

You've probably noticed my icon before but if not it's a Chloe Sevigny wearing a Chloe cat mask:

Beautiful.
But since I've been looking at this icon every day for almost six months it's started to seep into my mind. And I'm now officially obsessed with girls in masks and pissed off that I can't walk around in a mask all day, every day.
I just think they're glamorous!
See what I mean? Yes, they're mysterious and sexy but mostly I think they're just fun! The world is in a very serious place right now and fashion has mostly been reflecting that. I just want to have fun and these fashionable masks allow for escapism and fantasy just as fashion should! But I think for a night out we could make a cat mask work, couldn't we girls? 
If you love the Chloe mask you should check out this one...
<span class=
It looks remarkably similar and since it's mass produced I'm sure it's easy to find on other sites and at costume stores. Plus, it's less than $10! Lets make this photo shoot trend into a real world trend!

I love them, they look so cool and edgy. I saw the Luella one (I think) on MK in Nylon, but my favorites are the ones with feathers.

It would be so cute if you just showed up at a friends for a party night randomly wearing a mask. It really would be!

i wouldn't have the guts to wear it to school or something like that. But if i'm going out it would be a fun thing to do.

Lydia said...

Brilliance! If these don't make it into our daily lives, we always have masked balls, right? Haha. I love these masks, but I adore the sheer ribbon mask Sophia Coppola dressed her Marie Antoinette in in the movie for the masked ball. So chic!
