Glamour, seduction and the hat! Paintings by Tamara De Lempicka

Women on Tamara's canvas are irresistibly sexy through their confident look, elegant poise and sophisticated dress. I love how the hat creates a tantalizing shadow over each of their face and how harmoniously it goes with either simple or glamourous dress.

What a beauty the artist is! See the resembleness between her look and those in her paintings...

Simple shirt plus short haircut, cool and classy.

Still remember that how-to-wear-boyfriend-shirt youtube clip in which the girl, well, almost naked one, with only a shirt covered up? Bunch of good tricks on how to twist and knot a shirt, but does it really look like a piece of wearable dress and how many girls have the guts to put it on for real? Nahnah, not for me at least..I still prefer the traditional way of wearing a man's shirt - simply tuck it in a pair of jeans, and if you wanna complete the cool look, go get a super short haircut:) Worth to try in this warmer and warmer spring, huh?
