Architectural Inspiration

A whimsical home requires a complementary look, right, darlings?

Architectural inspiration via architecturaldigest.com.

CC has decided to offer a variety of dressing options here. Note that bold brights like lemon yellow, safety orange, and regal purple look fabulous with nudes!

Pleasure Doing Business 5 band miniskirt; this and next at shopbop.com. CC adores these bandage minis - so fabulous and affordable! A chic alternative to Herve Leger...

Haute Hippie nude v neck tee with rhinestones.

Otrera printed silk-chiffon scarf; this and next at two at net-a-porter.com.

Versace leather platform sandals. CC needs!

Tibi wool-crepe dress.

Rebecca Minkoff Alligator Impression Nikki Hobo, at shopbop.com.

Versace floral-print stretch-satin dress; this and next at net-a-porter.com.

Jimmy Choo Private patent-leather sandals.


What do you think of this haute house and the looks it inspired, darlings?


xoxox,

CC

P.S. Thanks for all your encouragement, my Fellow Fashionistas ~ CC has decided to make "Architectural Inspiration" a regular feature on Couture Carrie!

It's a bit odd, that house reminds me slightly of the home used for The Brady Bunch; then, on the other hand, it makes me think of a tropical getaway complete with pretty drinks laden with colorful umbrellas! What a fabulous selection for this Architectural Inspiration feature, CC! LOVE the Jimmy Choo Private Patent-Leather Sandals - absolutely stunning!! :)

Becca [Free Honey] said...

I love these yellows and oranges, but I don't know how to make them work for cooler weather. I always revert to a palette of neutrals in the winter. I want to break out of the mold this year.
