Inspiration Board: Ruby Red Vintage Glamour

Modvintagefuss2

Here’s an inspiration board I put together for a contest being held by Southern Weddings Magazine and Fuss Jewelry. The challenge was to build a board inspired by a piece of jewelry on the Fuss website; I chose the Kelly earrings in black spinel and gold wire. I may still tinker with it before sending it in, but the contest ends at midnight so if you’re interested, put your creative cap on!

Row 1: Crystal claret glasses by Gentl & Hyers; red flower initials from OnceWed’s Flickr photostream; mirror and candelabra still life by Jo Tyler; red roses invitation suite Ceci New York.
Row 2: net and feather headpiece, Sara Gabriel; Kelly earrings from Fuss Jewelry; rose petals line the stairs in a photo from Emilie Inc.; red patent shoes from The Knot; blackberry fizz cocktail, photographer Dierdre Rooney; vintage wedding gown photo from Junebug Weddings.
Row 3: luggage photograph, Bueller Designs on Etsy; Kirsten Dunst photographed by Alex Lubomirski, Harper’s Bazaar (October 2008, page 300); scrollwork silhouette photo by La Vie Photography; red and white cake on Instyle Weddings.
Row 4: Roses close-up by Gentl & Hyers; reception space, Quat Quatta in Victoria Australia; red chandelier, OnceWed’s Flickr photostream; 1940’s getaway car photo on Junebug Weddings.

    Looks awesome. Of course I notice the red shoes right off the bat, but I also love the car and the chandelier, too.
    Good job 🙂

    Thanks everyone! Your comments are so appreciated. This one took me a really long time, so it’s great to hear that the effort paid off…and can you imagine how thrilled I was after hours of searching to find just the right style car photo with the tiniest hint of red! 🙂
    I’ve never won anything in my life (not even a game of checkers!) so fingers crossed for this one!
