Bleeding Knees Can Be Fancy

Beautiful women are everywhere. Right now, sitting at this tiny cafe, I count 17 - most of which are showing more skin than not. So then I wonder why the beautiful women drawn by Caitlin Shearer are so fresh.

Maybe it's a little thing called class. You know, that illusive trait that made Grace Kelly a star. In Caitlin's drawings, there might be a formula to it - perhaps lush hair, dramatic eyebrows, and translucent skin maketh the classy lady.

Or maybe it's about feeling like we're peeking in on these effortless beauties in a private moment. With the internet, we're never short on pouty people showing-off for the camera... so it's nice to sleuth in on a moment of quiet. A moment that it feels like no-one else is noticing.

Oh, and there are two other things I like about Caitlin Shearer. One - she's as classy in real life as I hoped she would be (she looks a leading lady in a 50's film). Two - we can see her style evolve from all the way back in 2006, because flickr pro is awesome like that.
