When I saw this editorial for Hint Magazine (September Issue), I couldn't help reminiscing back to my English class in school. One of the plays that we covered was 'A Dolls House', written by Henrik Ibsen from Norway. The play is all about a husband 'Torvald' and his ''dolly'' wife 'Nora', who eventually breaks free from his ehhhh... ''manly'' grip.
I personally find this editorial a symbol of that play, I could be wrong though.... However, given that the editorial is called 'Dolly Birds', I could be close. Ok, enough of the play that was written in 1879 (a completely different World to the one we live in now...?).
Another thing that attracted me to this editorial was the oversized eyelashes. I LOVE fake eyelashes, I don't really know why? Its not like I wear them often, but when I do, I feel quite glamourous. However, when I look in the mirror, that glamourous feeling is gone when I see them up near my eyebrows, as opposed to my eyelashes. Fake eyelashes don't treat me well (just like Torvald didn't treat Nora well), but hey, like a fool I still love them!
And of course, the clothes further enticed me to post about this editorial. Look at the coat on the right hand side in the first picture! Look at the sweater dress on the right hand side in the third picture! Look at the blouse on the left hand side in the last picture! I truly do love!
So, what do you think about this editorial? Is it as symbolic for you, as it is for me?
Oh and the quotes you see, are quotes from the play. Some said by Nora, some by Torvald.
Oh, and by the way, thanks so much for all the tips on how to upload photos. Appreciate it! Have a great Tuesday!
