you’re so vain

September 21, 2017

Somewhere among our family photographs is a black and white picture of my grandmother sitting at her vanity looking into a triptych mirror. It’s such a striking image. I remember seeing it for the first time as a child, and to this day, I think it’s why I have a thing for vanities. Of course, not all dressing tables are created equal, and hers, I’m sure, was a beautiful one. If I were buying one today, I’d be tempted by the nostalgia and romance of something from the 50s. But then again, this one by French artist GĂ©rard Rigot is right up my crazy, colourful alley.
