Siren Song.

Our English teacher showed us a video excerpt from the movie O Brother Where Art Thou since we were studying the Odyssey at the time. I particularly loved the scene where three sirens (siren (noun): overly nymph-like, sensual, etc.) sing. Their outfits are extremely inspiring.

The siren costumes remind me of Keira Knightley's gardening outfit in Atonement (another movie well worth watching. While Keira's character isn't exactly the same seductress the sirens are in O Brother Where Art Thou, she does seem to be channeling the same type of clothing vibe.

I personally love both takes on sheer garments, and I hope to expand my closet with some new pieces inspired by both movies soon.

The Sirens seduce the main protagonists in O Brother Where Art Thou.
