Inspired Vintage Make Over


Cate Blanchette in a Jean Paul Gaultier Couture
silk and velvet gown. Image courtsey of Vogue

This pic of Cate Blanchette (awesome Aussie actress) has been stirring my inspiration for some time. I just love, love love the textures and soft pastel colours against the black pompoms!
Jean Paul Gaultier gown, no less.......


My favourite colour at the moment is soft pinks, beige and whites, so when I found a soft pink cardi at the Op Shop for $2.50 it was definitely coming home with me. You know when an image from your collection of pics just pops into your head, well that image of Cate on the couch in her JPG gown came to me.....with some tulle and floral braid my Op Top now has a new look.

And heres my spin on it.
I'm sure I'll find a perfect time and place to wear it....maybe I could recline on the couch tonight in my new couture!
