Softly...

with the seasons coming up, with even more femininity, ruffles, draping,
flowered everything,  I could not resist putting a few of the things
that have captured me and from which I am inspired...



see below for sources & comments

puppy love






Mother-of-Pearl Tiles

my daughter used these in all the hallways of one of her
spas near the ocean, I cannot tell you how beautiful it was.

beautiful natural bouquet





Valentino Haute Couture detail



Ruffles, Flourishes & Pearls
always pearls





Earth Cake
I love beautiful cakes, and have often thought I should take cake decorating classes,
the only downside is eating the cake,
but maybe some of the friends/family would help with this.

So beautiful - so easy on the eye. I love the softness of texture (sometimes just implied) and hue.

Such beautifully detailed dresses make me sigh. How lovely they are. But where would I wear one?

Andrea said...

Yes they are real glamour posts, the shots are amazing! But i love most that portrait of the puppy and the emotions are so endearing! OMG it is so adorable! Your shots are great.

Marsha, we are drooling over that gown! We would love to play dress up and wear a gown like this to a grand event! Hummm... What event would that be?

Splenderosa said...

Answering questions about where to wear the gowns...I think one of visual or performing arts galas. Like the museum ball, or the opera/ballet/symphony balls in your city. Houston is a very dressed up city, like some of our southern sisters, and you would definitely see these types of gowns at these events. I know, I know...simply no way one could wear the "same" gown to all 4 events is there? Love to you all...

I've been a cat lover all my life, but the sight of that beautiful little puppy has my heart melting. Please can you tell me what kind of dog he/she is? What a cuddle-bug!
