Ballroom

I wouldn’t have thought to pair wedgewood blue, mustard, and olive if I hadn’t spent hours staring at this ballroom carpet last week.


Jacket, Dex (swap). Dress, Max Studio (thrifted). Blouse, Merona. Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Nine West. Owl badge, swap. Dangling owl brooch, self-made. Alligator ring, vintage. Brown ring, swap. Faux topaz ring, Silpada. Coat (below), Lilli Ann.

I really like these last few blog posts with your unusual sources of inspiration (floral bouquet/carpet). It's very cool and shows your creativity!
(Also, love what you did the jacket to give it a military look with the ribbon bow and pin. It's darling!)

Gorgeous colour combo. I like your outfit much better than the carpet!

Nine West boots are simply smokin' hot on women. Pair 'em with a skirt that hits at the knee...whew.

I love that you've been posting your inspiration for outfits. It's helping me learn how to find inspiration in my closet! Great job looking fabulous day after day!

I love that your getting inspiration from the tings around you... I actually like this ballroom carpet, which is rare because they're usually quite hideous. But I love your interpretation!

I love it when you find inspiration in the most unexpected places :)
I have to say that the coat + dress print transport me to other times, it looks so 60's to me !
Oh, and i am particularly fond of the owl pendant.
