This little number’s up for auction at Sotheby’s. Ludovic Alleaume’s In the Countryside is estimated to fetch between three and five hundred thousand dollars. I’m just hoping that someone can buy this for me and install it in my walk-in closet or something because hello, these dresses are everything to me.
Alleaume, a Monet contemporary, was influenced on this whole outdoor painting thing. I’m not always a fan of the middle part, but I’m feeling really good about this bright plaid.
You know who is not a fan of the tartan? People who visited the Salon. One translation alludes they would’ve imagined such a bright fashion choice outrageous.
Whatever, guys. Y’all thought that about gaucho pants at first, and they were HUGE.
