{fashion inspiration: mint velvet}






. . . always adore beautiful things shot beautifully, although sometimes fall more for the photography, mint velvet's spring/summer collection is filled with romantic and delicate pieces with their trademark relaxed glamour -- perhaps stripes for a late spring picnic, or silver sequins for sexy summer nights -- but mostly love the mood of the these photographs, which feel as if they were taken on a perfectly bright and wonderful afternoon spent relaxing at home . . .

{p.s.} also today, a guest post: 10 things

Very romantic indeed, love the sparkly little cardigan. The photography is flattering to the line, I agree. Soft lighting, white fabrics..etc.etc.
