inspired by: yards of colorful tulle, 50’s dresses, piles of jewels, slow sultry music, an evening of martinis, and the way it feels to be all dressed up for someone…

    BEAUTIFUL! My husband and I love to share a martini with special music (Edith Piaf has some great “martini time” music!) for a quiet weekend date night in. This inspired me to make it extra special with my outfit and bar supplies. I must know about that retro looking glass and olive pick! Are they recent finds or more of your vintage treasure hunting?

  • 42. Sarah  |  March 6th, 2012 at 2:01 pm

  • 58. Michelle {onmyownblog}  |  March 6th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    What I dig most about these is the softness/ fogginess that allows the viewer to feel part of the dream, and it builds an anticipation of wondering where this dream will head next, once the fog clears. Great team effort, look fwd to more.
