as i mentioned on friday, we attended a wedding this past weekend (more on that later). i thought it might be fun to share the inspiration board i put together for my outfit and my daughter's outfit. (it's only fair since i shared my son's outfit, right?) my daughter pretty much wore what i have on the board - a dress from crew cuts in shadow (cool color name. is it someone's job to create color names? where do i apply?), striped tights, and desert boots. yes, i put my daughter in desert boots instead of fancy party shoes. what can i say, i'm a tomboy at heart and passing it on to my daughter (poor thing).
my outfit, on the other hand, is pure fantasy. except for the earrings (those are the ones i wore), the dress, booties, and bracelet were used purely for inspiration. one day, christian louboutin, you will be mine. i'm really loving black lace right now and i found a similar dress to the one shown at...j.crew. i did a little diy project on the dress and added lace trim to the back and hem. i also found some less expensive booties and painted the bottoms red (just kidding!). the whole look was made complete by a red lip.
i'm curious, when you're getting ready for an event, where and how do you get inspiration? do you tear out pictures from magazines? do you use inspiration boards? do you use pinterest? maybe a favorite celebrity inspires you? or do you just wing it? sometimes i wing it too.
