A classy alley beauty, in my books.
I’ve seen and posted this artist’s (Hello Kristen) work before.
It’s always been like torn wall papers.
This time there is a woman in a hat in front of the wallpaper.
Had some trouble with sun coming up over the top, so I had to filter a few shots.

I do love (and have) a hat with a veil. Thanks for sharing this one.
Hats with veils are a must. You are a class act, dear Janet!
Unquestionably Audrey-esque! The rest of the mural also fits well around her.
FYI: Gloria Estefan this Saturday
I’ll be there!
Sweet! She was a good lady.
Yes, and a fabulous actress.! This is a lovely find in an alley.
I love this nod to the past. Elegance and simplicity – a dynamic combination. I remember Frances (my mother) wearing hats and long gloves up to her elbows in black or white, depending upon the time of day. Another marvelous post.
Yes, before daily showers, daily shampoos and modern hair products, women went once a week to the hairdresser (provided they could afford it, or their lifestyle allowed it).
Hats were the answer to the call for beauty, and wigs to a degree.
Also, there were not as many household conveniences, women had more children and their hands paid a big price.
Style via hats and gloves, allowed all woman to be equal.
We find a way, don’t we. I admire those determined and courageous women who used creativity and spontaneity to add beauty to their world. We have big shoes to fill.
Fascinating mural. To me it has the look of realistic cartoon style along with a bit of Andy Warhol in the mix.
Great review! It is a very fascinating mural, especially for a garage door!
love the colors, patterns and textures
IKR! It really is fab.
An Audrey Hepburn reincarnation.
A graffitilistic creative sensation 💝
A hat with a veil brings things to a whole ‘nother level.
A classic beauty for sure…
IKR! It is very classy. ⚡️💥
Ah, so elegant… just like Audrey! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
Yes! …. and just like you! xxoxoxoxoxooxooxoxoxoooxo
A ha ha ha….. I laugh because most people who have met me say I have the ‘elegance’ of a goat!!!!!! Aries (my sign) may have something to do with it!!!!!!! I’m sure though that elegance fits you perfectly!!!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
Well… then you are probably an Angora Goat!
Elegance suits me to a T… until I spill the wine all over the table!!! LOL
Angora Goat… exactly… and gosh they’re elegant!!!! 😂🤣😂 On wine… well, that’s a sign of a person who likes to share, isn’t it?!!!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
In any case… we know we’re perfect! 😉 xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo🤗
Great art, as always. Wonderful images, Resa! Makes happy all the day, and brings very positive mood. Thank you, and have a beautiful week. Michael
You have a great rest of week and weekend!
This is really beautiful, the pure essence of Audrey, I adore it!
First thing I thought of was Audrey. She has definitely made a lasting impression.
Her wardrobe in Sabrina is crazy fab!
I just watched That for the umpteenth time a couple of nights ago she’s amazing.
Holly…… Go lightly! xo
By all means. I first watched Breakfast. at Tiffany’s in Brussels , dubbed in English.
It really was. Oh the good old days.
Maybe that’s why I make Art Gowns…fusing the past with now.
Nostalgia is beautiful!
Yes, it is.
Even though the Tango was the first inspiration for this Art Gown, it doesn’t have to be in the title.
I’m now working on a name for it. I do like the words Tango… Heart … Dance .. Passion …. all of which I’ve never used in an Art Gowns’ name.
The dance originates basically in Buenos Aires… a dance of the peasants.
I’m reading about the history of the Tango & Argentina. Let me know if you have any thoughts. xoxo
Something nostalgic could work with Tango… or ??
I’ll do a bit of research on this and and get back on it. Frank probably knows a lot about this.
Frank would be good.
I need to contact him for a Tango video for the post.
Yeah, good plan!
The background is beautiful. So colorful. The woman sets the entire thing off in the most elegant way. It’s wonderful. Great shots, Resa.
It was a neat garage door to shoot. Very enjoyable.
Oh marvelous! You photographed it well, Resa. Hugs on the wing.
LOL!!! Thanks Teagan! Will hit send &watch!
I wonder how the artist conceptualised the background. It really is a great effort.
I don’t know how/what the artist thought, but I’m glad he/she did. That’s the beauty of the creative mind; a mystery that piques.
Well, from my experience I have never found a classy lady in an alley. This provides hope. She looks gorgeous and classy (like you’re ).
Hope you are well Resa. Happy to reconnect.
I am well! TY for the lovely compliment.
I will say, when I’m in the alleys looking for art, I am one of the better looking denizens. LOL
Nonetheless, I have talked with some very unlikely, and interesting people.
Great to see you back in action!
I keep checking for a new post! Hope you are well!
Alluring alley dame !
Agree! Hope you are doing well, Sidran!
Awesome find Resa. Recognized Audrey instantly – lovely creation.
Love Audrey Hepburn! I once had a poster of hers in my first ever flat.
Great piece of Street Art, thanks for this! xx
Thank you!I adore Audrey, too!
💖💖 She is fabulous
Agree! I was so happy to find this!
