Architectural Inspiration

Darlings, CC is addicted to these posts now... am thinking of making them a regular feature. What do you say?
Purple bedroom via interiorarcade.com. CC had a lavender bedroom as a child, so this super space brings back some lovely memories.

Kimberly Taylor Alicia dress, at shopbop.com. CC adores Kimberly Taylor dresses!

Oscar de la Renta crystal-embellished snakeskin slingbacks; this and next two at net-a-porter.com.

Lanvin Pouchette Oulouette satin bag.

Matthew Williamson rabbit shrug.


What do you think of this space and the look it inspired, darlings?


xoxox,

CC


P.S. Be sure to check out CC's Guest Post today on The Panty Drawer... Haute hosiery is the theme!
