Inspiration Board

I used to make inspiration boards a lot when I first started my blog and I'm not quite sure why I quit doing them, I love making them! 
This is everything I'm into at the moment: vintage Christian Dior, Marisa Berenson on the beach, butterfly-print dresses, Noten Lyppens lucite 50s bag, Dries Van Noten beaded cuffs, The Supremes, yellow and stripes, a Balenciaga editorial from a couple years ago, anything that sparkles, Tabitha Simmons, and tribal prints.

mood boards rock, it's funny how you don't notice what you're feeling until you have it all collected in front of you. loving the photo with the oversize earrings.

Great! I put my inspirations in a scrap book- I'm up to about 5 books now. A board is a great idea though- why now display it.
