God dag Chic-a-dees,

Of course I was up bright and early but not at all chipper to bring you today's wonderful inspiration post. I saw this hot pic of Rachel McAdams at the Cannes Film Festival and I thought, that is one hot outfit. The other inspiration was my May edition of Vogue Paris that presented another huge trend this spring/summer season; glitter and crystals. Why can't we be red carpet fabulous on a normal basis. When we are going out with friends, attending a ballet or opera? We do not have to covet the stars' lives we can decorate our own.


So of course I set off to find a suitable look for you fabulous peeps to recreate. I love opening a magazine or going to another fashion blog or seeing a picture or a sunset and just being inspired. So here is the board that was inspired by this look and later I will be writing another post to tell you about my upcoming plans for the future and the reason behind the foreign language of choice greeting.. enjoy and be inspired.
