Chelsea let me know that […]

I just love this powder blue ‘oh so perfect for winter’ inspiration shoot submitted by Alea Lovely. It takes us right back to a classy version of the 1970s.

When Jenna of Creatrix Photography submitted this Irish inspiration shoot I fell in love with it right away. It’s so rustic and whimsical and looks like it popped straight out of a fairy tale!

Dear Burnett’s Boards, I’ll admit it, I’ve become a little addicted to the boards on your site! When I look at one of your inspiration boards I feel like I’m at a wedding. I can taste the cake, smell the flowers, and feel the silky dress. But sometimes I feel that you’re missing just a […]

At first glance this wedding inspiration board might say ‘mardi gras’ to you, but it’s not! It’s inspired by Carnival in Venice – isn’t the turquoise and purple color combination lovely? While working on this and thinking about Venice my mind turned to art. Why? Well, fashion blogger Gary Pepper is featured in this board […]
