Board #254 | Le rouge baiser

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
