{Wonder Woman Series #6 } Meet Louise a.k.a. Miss. Pandora!

Good day dolls!! I hope your week has been beautiful. I'm ending the week with another beauty in our Wonder Woman series. I have read Louise's blog for a very long time, in fact, it was one of the first blogs I read when I started mine and after all these years I am still in love with it and have become friends with Louise now too - after my husband told me to not be shy & say hello, haha. When I first saw her blog, I was shocked at how much we have in common, as it is very rare in this day to find a soul you can connect with on so many levels, but when you do, it's like magic. We share our love of art, books, vintage, music and so so many other things. I feel she has given a new world and image to not only fashion blogging, but to blogging itself as a whole. Unique as she is charming, I'm very happy she agreed to take part in this series as I feel she has something very special to say. It's wonderful to find another who works to keep Art & passions alive! I hope you enjoy & be sure to say hello to Louise, she is very kind!

Have a wonderful weekend darlings

Louise's Blog

PANDORA




1. With art being a majour part of your life, which painter, if you could, would you wish to paint your portrait?? 

That's a great question !!! It's a tough choice, but I think that my heart would definitely go to Dante Gabriel Rossetti, for the way he magnifies women, both sacred and sensual.


Dante Gabriel Rossetti




2. Who are the women that you have been inspired by throughout your life so far??

God, so many ! All my life I've been inspired by amazing muses, it's how I built my myself..There's Courtney Love, Anita Pallenberg, Luisa Casati, Simone de Beauvoir, Isabelle Adjani, Camille Claudel, Marianne Faithfull, Elizabeth Siddal, Suzanne Valadon, Rita Hayworth, Pamela des Barres, Penny Lane (I know, not real but big inspiration..), Misia Sert, Otero/Liane/Hortense and all the parisian courtesan, Zelda Fitzgerald, Anaïs Nin...And many more ! 

Courtney Love

Anita Pallenberg

Luisa Casati



3. Do you ever feel as a young woman in this day and age, there are still those who look down on women & see them as less equal? 

Wow it's really hard for me to answer that, because it's the kind of subject that is impossible for me to sum up, I could write pages and pages on that matter...Of course I still feel that women are not equal to men. Compared to the revolting condition of women around the world, I'm very lucky to live in France, but here sexism is not that much about rights, it's about strong prejudices, and a narrow-minded society. Sexism is like a national treasure here, it's stuck in every mind. If I'm alone for a minute in a café, waiting for my boyfriend, men will come and annoy me in a second, because in France, men feel like women's beauty is a gift to them, and they have the right, if not the duty to comment on it, appreciate it and try to taste it. We girls get so annoyed in the streets that it's created a new expression : street harassment.  As a woman you'll always be considered stupid/shallow/bitchy/greedy, you have to fight to prove that you're intelligent if you wear skirts, and you'll always find people that think that you'd be better at home with kids than working. And you have to watch for your safety every fucking second, especially in Paris and that makes me so angry...But compared to women's condition in the XIXth century (that I study, and it made me realize that we're still deeply rooted in XIXth century morals and ideas), we're very very very lucky. 




4.  What do you hope to achieve through your blog?

When I started the blog, I didn't really know what I wanted to do, and still don't, because I never plan things. It's important for me to stay super spontaneous, and trust only my creativity and inspiration, I let things come to myself...For now I've been able to get over my self-confidence issues and it's pretty great, I developed my creativity a lot and built a strong visual universe. Through my characters, I've learnt who I am, and it's the most important for me. In the future, I'd like to be a better writer, to always go further with my inspirations and creativity, discover many many things everyday, and meet lovely art lovers like me, because it's so important to both share and receive...






5. If you could give all women in the world 3 things for their lives, what would they be? 

Love, art and music. Simple as can be!

  1. I love so much what you have said about connecting to somebody...the older I get, the more I appreciate the friendship and realize what a rare and beautiful thing it is...I mean we can (and should) be friendly with a lots of people, but there will always be a limited number of those we're really close to and we should really treasure them.

    She sounds like a great lady and we're basically inspired by the same women! A portrait by Rossetti...that would be just dreamy! lovely interview:)

    1. Thank you very much, I appreciate the comment :)) It is important to build each other up, not enough do it in this world. Many are self-seeking & it';s horrible. I feel there are too many great women in this world that deserve to be noticed & remembered, which is why I started this topic :)) Have a great weekend Xoxo

  18. What an excellent interview! Her thoughts regarding how women are treated in Paris, France were enlightening! I wasn't aware that it was that bad. It opened my eyes and she explained it so well. Lovely blogger! Thanks for showcasing her Kizzy! I've got to thank you again Kizzy. The package came so quickly and you surprised me with the candies. I love everything! My mom thanks you too! Have an amazing weekend my friend.

    1. I'm glad you liked it doll! Yes, sometimes from the outside we see the dreamy parts of a place, but o actually live there is another story. It's so apparent that woman as a whole still have so far to go in equality and need to make themselves aware of it. You're most welcome for the candies and things, my pleasure :)) You deserve it!! Have a gorgeous weekend too my dear xx

  21. She definitely reminds me of you! I love her sense of style and it is so great that you two are friends. She is right in stating that women are in a much better place, but still have a way to go before we are truly equal to men. Happy weekend to you dear!
