A Look Back

Anyone who knows me would be the first to say that I can't have a blog without mentioning Edie Sedgwick. Of the few pictures there are to choose from of her this one is by far my favorite. Though it is a photo of her just after she was saved from her burning Hotel Chelsea room, I feel that it portrays a deeper meaning by me knowing so much about her. I adopted an intense obsession with the late heiress a few years ago and know everything there is to know about her (for the most part) and I can't help but think what would have happened if she had been born into the right time period. Her lifestyle, her clothing, her ideas on life and perception were so ahead of her time that it is a wonder she even lived to the age of 28.

Just a thought..
