Khaleeshi and her White horse from Game of Thrones
Dreamy, Ethereal and Fresh... pretty much sums up the heavenly inspiration above. White on white (or shades of white, ivory, blush, beige) with shimmering floaty embellishments epitomise this board of Blossom™'s on Pinterest. I have also added the beautiful, strong and ambitious Khaleeshi from Game of Thrones as she is my current warrior inspiration when things get tough. Might sound silly but the character's determination and instinct for winning is very inspiring to me.

Going For Baroque

Massive trend alert - Baroque Revival. Decorative prints, architectural garments and sunglasses that will set off the metal detectors at airports. It's all about gold, elaborate ornamentation, whimsy, over the top patterns, decoration for the sake of it. Its a rebellion against from and function. Baroque puts the fun in function.

Opulence, damask, gold and a grunge twist.

Wings of Desire

A quirky take on the fairytale princess

Cakes that even Marie Antoinette wouldn't share.

Nailed it with baroque patterns

Collage fashion

Sunglasses the angels would wear.

Bring back the bows, hats and embroidered gowns

Fashion becomes an artwork.

Paris Opera - Opulence to the Extreme

I have just booked tickets to take my daughter to La Sylphide at the Paris Opera. It is a truly old fashioned ballet in one of the most opulent theatres in the World. I has to share and I promise to get loads of shots once I am in Paris in a few months. OK so we are at the back, but we will be there to experience the spectacle. Super excited. But what to wear?????
