{fashion inspiration: feather clutch}


. . . one of my very favourite shots is a detail of viviana volpicella, {assistant fashion editor, vogue nippon}, wearing a champagne-coloured silk blouse and holding a large leather clutch by yves saint laurent, photographed by tommy ton of jak & jil for style.com -- there is just something about it that draws you in -- the play of light and shadow, and all the little details that say so much . . . and now this soft and dusky image has become a new favourite -- a swish of tulle, a feather clutch, and an utterly romantic glimpse of an enchanting moment caught in time . . .

{p.s.} silver shoes & feathers and pretty, pretty things

Normally I don't like things that are covered in feathers, but the monochrome and simplicity of everything else really helps her pull it off. Love the texture.

I just love how her wedding tuned out! I can only imagine the pictures that were taken. All of the prettiness was in place and so well done. I loved the fashionable details -- this clutch especially, and also, the pink ribbon around her delicate cape for such a nice finishing touch :)

I cannot wait to be married one day*
must head over to your archives -- you have me thinking and inspired for tomorrow's outfit!
