Having been obsessed with the film, and because I read an article in Dazed & Confused about it, I read The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides last week and I'd definitely recommend it.

Even though she's wearing a really frumpy old frock it still looks beautiful on her and asdgaskl I wish I was Lux without the unhappy ending and strict parents..

I also made a collage based on the girls' bedrooms and aesthetic, mainly inspired by Cecelia's religious icons and decoration, using my doodles and polyvore-
