When the girls dress like the boys x white tie and tails VIII. Marlene Dietrich understood men’s clothes better than most men. And style wise she was far ahead of her time. In a time in which women were more or less stuck to skirts and dresses, she started raiding the male wardrobe to add to her collection of dresses and gowns. She had her men’s tailors, shirtmakers and cobblers (she frequented quite a few) make her suits, blazers, sports coats, shirts and custom made trousers. But only Knize in Vienna and Eddie Schmidt in Hollywood made her many tails. Fun trivia: Dietrich’s starched shirt cuffs were directly attached with a hidden buttoned fastening in the sleeve of her dress suits. So she wore sleeveless shirts with her tailcoat, that allowed for quick costume changes and slimmer, more feminely cut jacket sleeves. And while costume jewelry was always worn with stage costumes, for Marlene’s favorite white tie and tails, the cuff links were always her own- from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels or Trabert & Hoeffer.
Some Marlene to class up your day.

this is my favourite picture on the internet
I hope hundreds of years later this picture is found completely out of context by anthropologists and it’s the final tipping point before they completely give up on trying to understand the internet in this decade.

Emma Watson for W Magazine (June 2013)
I think we reach for descriptions of glory and awe and wonder, of humanity and of divinity, of men and of lions, on our quest to identify what the Almighty would appear as, without really acknowledging what being received into his kingdom really means. We know and believe that the Holy Spirit resides inside us and the Son walks with us, but to be given the grace to see and understand God in all his enormity and fullness, and to be with him, instead of grasping at our own insignificant experiences, like trying to define infinity with only color, is a feeling I don’t feel big enough for. It shakes me and brings tears to my eyes, which look up and out knowing that this wait, and everything, is toward his purpose and splendor.
“And as he spoke he no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them… . ”
