Victorian dreams

I love these old photographs by Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. She was a pioneering portrait photographer, one of the first to start applying the principles of fine art to photography. I found the photo's here. These dreamy, romantic images make me long for white rooms with pale pink accents and possibly a hint of black or grey. They make me want to wear soft pink dresses like this, or drape myself from top to toe in Rodarte.
