Architectural Inspiration: Ravishing Red

First things first, darlings! The winner of CC's $75 Shop Moderne Gift Certificate is the lovely Ashley ~ congrats, and happy shopping!

Architectural Inspiration courtesy of Blair of Delight by Design.

Alexander McQueen jewel-embellished stretch-crepe gown; this and next at net-a-porter.com.

Miu Miu suede strappy platform sandals.

Theory Elston leather jacket with fur collar; this and next at shopbop.com.

Soixante Neuf gold drop earrings.

Darlings, what do you think of this space and the look it inspired?

Have you ever paired a formal gown with a blazer or leather jacket?

Allison said...

Omg, that McQueen and that room?! I'm dying for them both! I'm usually not so fond of red on walls (though my house boasts them), but these are so tastefully done, and it's vibrant, but not so over the top!
Lovely post, darling! xo
