An elegant contrasting palette full of lighthearted shimmer and bold cobalt blue accents. I love the idea of a long-sleeved bridesmaids dress, and the airy sprays of orchids bring the calm feeling of the pale accents to each table.
They’re over the top, full of playful personality and made with luxurious folds of fabric. London based Tour de Force is a designer that makes unique fashions and headpieces that have completely rocked my world today. They are not for every bride but if you think you can pull one of these babies off at your wedding, PLEASE DO, and don’t forget to send me pictures! I’m putting one on my wish-list since I can’t stop daydreaming about wearing one to a party someday. They ship to the states and create custom bridal pieces upon request.
I’ve had a long running obsession with anything that resembles a delicious frosted cake. Typically it’s architecture, I love buildings that look like you could walk up to them with a fork and take a bite. A perfect example is this photo of a white church that I keep above my desk in my office. My god-mother sent it to me from a vacation that she was on a couple of years ago…I can’t wait to see it in person someday!
I came across these necklaces by White Owl, they are so delicate and nostalgic; I love the lighthearted feeling. They are made using new and re-purposed materials, the owner describes herself as a lover of art, flea markets and great style.
Here is more inspiration on the same light & airy note…

I love the blend of lavish finishes and organic design in this nickel plated and gold cake stand by L’Objet. It would look beautiful in a rustic outdoor setting that is adorned with warm gold accents, filled with bamboo chairs, and boldly represents the beauty of natural inspired elements. For example…
A fabric draped dream, the Elie Saab Fall 2010 Couture Collection is one of the most inspirational shows I have ever laid eyes on.
Sheers, lace, texture, reflection, rich muted tones – it’s flowing perfection. Notice the color variation between dresses and on each garment. The dresses look like they are laid on the models, wrapped around and secured for a perfect fit.
