The title makes it sound like a super-fancy masterwork or something.
Actually, I just drew it while watching How I Met Your Mother.
Because I am super fancy.
This is based on an Edwardian photograph that I saw and just loved. I have folders and folders of old photographs saved on my computer, and sometimes I'll spend hours leafing through them because they're so pretty.
I've yet to find out how this woman did her hair like that. I suspect witchcraft.
