Inspiration 2

Just another few pictures from the "Inspiration" folder on my computer....

Erin Fetherston never fails to design a collection that is pretty, feminine and utterly adorable. In Miu Miu heels and surrounded by dresses in aqua, peach and baby pink, her life seems perfect!!

This vintage pheasant feather hairpiece is unusual but oh so lovely, and I like how the green and blue sheen to some of the feathers is almost iridescent.

In a rose-streaked gown, surrounded by glowing orbs of light, Lily Cole is a decidedly eerie sight...

The swirling pattern on these cupcakes is delightful, and with blue icing and sculpted pink roses, they look absolutely delicious and delectable!

I'm in love with this vintage country cottage-shaped handbag that I found in an online store over a year ago. However, I can no longer remember exactly where I happened upon it, and so owning it must still remain a dream...

Miuccia Prada's Spring/Summer collection in 2008 was possibly the best collection ever. I saw some of these pieces in Harrods and actually dreamt about the fairy illustrations for weeks afterwards!

Sean Bean as Sharpe is definitely good TV viewing, and the costume is just a bonus - frogging, buttons, tassels, worn leather..........

This dress is the most stunning shape - I'm smitten by the puff sleeves, nipped-in waist and poufy skirt.

If only I had the skill to recreate this look, with sprinkles of colour trailing behind a cerise butterfly, teal eyelids, flawless skin and softly glossy lips.

Pastel tulle sculpted into spheres and sheer sleeves - what more can I say?

Peacocks are possibly my most favourite animals, and this vintage rhinestone brooch on Ebay is a testament to their majestic qualities.
