Today's Inspiration- Alice and Gert

by - Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas are a canonical couple in the history of modern art and literature, hosting a highly influential salon in Paris where basically everyone hung out. Plus, Alice made pot brownies and you get the sense they genuinely liked each other.  Gert wrote an autobiography of Alice, and she said about her: “I love my love with a b because she is peculiar.” Hopefully Gert also appreciated her hats, because they are mostly amazing.  They stayed together for 38 years until Stein's death, and together they had such a rich circle of creative friends and such a creative life.


Here are a few pictures of the couple, many by Cecil Beaton, to get you started on your day:
