This outfit of the day post is unique as it is inspired by one of my absolute favourite films/books of all time, The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides. The aesthetic of the film version has always fascinated me and director Sofia Coppola’s style is undeniably haunting and feminine all at once.
Under each photo is a quote that struck me while reading the book. The pages of The Virgin Suicides captivated me when I first read them and these words still take my breath away.
We felt the imprisonment of being a girl, the way it made your mind active and dreamy, and how you ended up knowing what colors went together.
Their desire was silent yet magnificent, like a thousand daisies attuning their faces toward the path of the sun.
We knew that the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love, and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them. We knew that they knew everything about us.
And that we couldn’t fathom them at all.
In the end we had pieces of the puzzle, but no matter how we put them together, gaps remained—oddly shaped emptiness mapped by what surrounded them.
Like countries we couldn’t name.
