There are several images here that I just couldn’t stop thinking about, including Zooey Deschanel in that fabulous dress and the patent leather shoes, but the central point of inspiration for this wedding board is the beautiful vintage cosmetics poster. What I ended up with is a sort of hybrid of French and American retro glam, and I think this sassy palette and look would be perfect for a couple with an awesome sense of style and fun.

Mood: sassy retro glam
Palette: black, white, red

    Breath..taken..away. I’ve been looking for that “Le Rouge Baiser” poster for 4 years… since I saw it at a friends house and he couldn’t remember where he bought it. And here it is, with a whole amazing board. Literally, speachless.

    I just adore this board! I have been trying to put one together for my wedding, but I am just not very good at it :) However, if I were good at it, I would come up with this one exactly!
