Inspiration 1

Doesn't Lily Cole look almost ballerina-esque in her layers of pastel chiffon?

I love looking into other people's jewellery boxes, as each piece is special and precious to the owner in its own particular way.

Karen Elson was stunning as a doll in this British Vogue editorial.

This is detailing from one of my dream dresses - clocks and armoires are embroidered along the hem.

I simply adore the skirt that this girl is wearing, captured by Facehunter.

I can't remember where I found this picture, but I love her cloud-like hair and embellished headband.

This peacock brooch has been attached to a chain to create a unique and stunning necklace.

Sasha Pivovarova exudes ethereal prettiness in my favourite British Vogue story ever. I have been hunting for vintage fabric to create a Union Jack blazer like she wears for over a year now, with no success. If anyone has any tips, let me know!

Such a delicate take on eye-makeup - pale pink feathers and a dusting of glittery shadow make for a match made in heaven.

This old military jacket was a wonderful ebay find, but prices were far too high for me when I discovered it!

I can only dream of owning a genuine beaded flapper dress one day.............

Today I made a headband using some old pheasant feathers from a long-forgotten craft project. It's definitely not perfect, but I love the quirk that it gives to otherwise plain outfits.
