Ivory, Lace and Tarnished Silver




Funny, when your eye is attuned to a certain pallette, you start to see it everywhere...



Valentino's collection was my favorite this year as far as workmanship...


All beaded and embroidered by hand...


Love these shoes...


The hint of this embroidered vest...


And the image of the gloves that all the models wore, all in a row...


*sigh*

Happy weekend everyone!

Oh my gosh, what beauty! So inspiring, making me want to see what I have in my stash that I might create a little something with.

Thank you for the inspiration.

The beading on the lace is incredible... I like the first one with silver AND gold... Ger

And the shoes look remarkably comfortable, too.

I've also noticed that when you've been thinking about something it pops up everywhere you turn...

Funny how that works. Seeing what we never saw before is merely paying attention better isn't it? Valentino has such a beautiful Spring collection. I can "see" your stitching fingers itching...

Catherine said...

Such beautiful work! I love them all, but that first dress, the shoes and the vest were probably my favorites!

I guess sequins, etc., are coming back in. Cool.

Oh my. I love these gowns. I used to make wedding gowns and there is such a lot of work that you put in them, especially if they are beaded. I once made a gown that I sewed 13,000 beads on and I thought it was a lot...but these masterpieces are incredible. I love your site!
