{a charming mix of things}


. . . lately have been receiving many lovely e-mails inquiring about the things that inspire and thought it might be fun to compile a beautiful list of current inspirations, of the things that enchant and captivate and the thoughts that turn into daydreams and the things that flutter, flutter through the imagination — and so, a charming mix of things . . .

. . . poems on mirrors {via felicity}

. . . natural wonders {one & two}

. . . always, backstage photos {via definitely golden}

. . . topknots {via scout-holiday}

. . . amazing crystal caves {via all the mountains}

. . . a room with a view

. . . smokey eyes & upswept hair

. . . side by side {via pink wallpaper}

. . . origami hearts

. . . gold & glass {via apartment therapy}

. . . chloé {via haute design}

. . . velvet chairs & herringbone floors {via felicity}

. . . and still, socks & heels

{p.s.} wednesday already! how the week has flown — hope it’s wonderful where you are,

  • Ok it’s official…i really have a thing for shoes with heels! I loved the way they looked in the Zac Posen for Target lookbook (as I showed on my blog) and now I’m LOVING them here too! I may just have to get brave enough to try it for myself.

    Lovely photos! Thanks for sharing. :)

  • Hi Roseline…

    I don’t think I’ve congratulated you in your feature inside Lucky Magazine, so Congratulations. You absolutely deserve being in the flashlights for running a Gorgeous and GLAMOROUS blog, which I am an absolute fan of. You never cease to take my breath away with all your beautiful posts.

    I ADORE the socks and heels so very much, I have yet to try this trend myself. The mirrors with the poems are LOVELY, love to have one of them hung in my home. The room with a view is AMAZING. LOVE-LOVE the smokey eye and sexy and soft updo. Origami hearts are so adorable.

    Overalllll, lovely post.

  • Beutiful pictures!

  • so much beauty!

  • Socks and heels are huge on my list right now, and in fact I’m putting something together just now about the topic! I got chills looking at those French poems on mirrors, and the backstage photos…and the gold…your taste is exquisite:)

  • hi! I have to say I adore this blog… it’s so inspiring :)
    Not a big deal, but the first mirror poem is in spanish, by Frida Kahlo:
    “Yo quisiera hacer lo que me da la gana detrás de la cortina de ‘la locura’ Así, arreglaría las flores, todo el día, pintaría el amor, el dolor y la ternura, me reiría a mis anchas de otros, pero sobre todo me reiría de mí, construiría mi mundo que mientras viviera seria mío y de todos”.

    That’s inspiring, no doubt.

  • magia — thank you so much! and also for the correction — had first composed this post with only the bottom {french} image, and had forgotten to change the caption after adding the second image, so many thanks :)


  • What a refreshing, inspiring, thought-provoking post! Love the shoes on the picture rail~
    The list could go on and on – great thing to think about at traffic lights ; )

  • Crystal Caves?!? Who knew? Now, THAT is glamorous. What I would give to get to see that in person.

  • Oh my! Such amazing inspiration! The Chloe bag, origami hearts, Hans Wegner, incredible crystal caves, LV…

  • The herringbone flooring in the first few photos is to DIE for!

  • Just love your blog, and this pictures are really a charming mix!! i think I have to use one or two in my blog… Is that OK with you? and of course I make a link to yours…. Have a wonderful glamorous day!!

    Oh that’s an interesting use for moulding! I’d be afraid the shoes would fall and hit me on the head, though.
