room to outfit


Second installment of room to outfit. I seriously can never get enough of anything that is featured in the fab home mag House Beautiful and when I came across this stunner of a room I knew I wanted to use if for an outfit inspiration. Even though this room was featured in 2008 I think it is still totally relevant to today's style.  I may never be bold enough to have a room like this in my home but I still can appreciate the beautiful colors and rich look of this New Orleans formal living room. The soft pink colored walls with the gold accents on the chairs, chandelier and mirror were all antiques found locally in NOLA.  I also adore the modern Lucite side table that mixes new with the old. Would you ever have a pink room in your home??? I think this fancy room deserves an elegant ensemble to wear within in it...queue the daydreaming of being fabulous drinking champagne and having friends over for dinner in this elegant environment!

This pale pink Zac Posen gown is absolutely insane, I knew the second I laid eyes on it, it would be the focal point of my room to outfit design. I seriously wish I had the funds and a place to wear such a beauty. I paired the exquisite dress with the always stylish Miu Miu shoes that have a Lucite heel which reminded me of the chandelier & the clear side table. The black trim on the nude suede  reminded me of the black dresser, back of the couch and black coffee table top. The aqua drop earrings are formal but organic in their shape while the color matches the couch and the stunning rug perfectly. The gold and diamond trim on the earrings reminded me of the trim on the mirror and chairs. The pillows shape inspired me to find a evening clutch to resemble the petite rectangle size and to use a shade a tad darker then the dress. I kept all the beauty products in the blush colored family as I didn't want anything too overpowering. The delicate bracelet is dainty enough to give your arm a little sparkle but not take away from the statement earnings. So what do you think, would you wear this look below???
