The second I saw this dress listed in the Delightful Dozen, I knew I wanted to get my hands on it, and I knew I wanted to use Marie Antoinette as my inspiration. The soft pastels and bold, floral print looked like something straight off the walls of the Petit Trianon! I looked around the house for some pink blush and a bottle of hairspray to poof my hair with, but that would've made everything a little costumey. The white petal hat was about as creative as I could get without going overboard!

Corey and I took these photos at this great Spanish-inspired building in town. It's set on a sharp curve, so I never get a great look at it when I pass, but I know I've always loved it. I was so happy to finally see it up close. Aren't the tile stairs fantastic! I hated the fact that the broom and wine bottle were sitting out when we were taking photos, but that ended up being my favorite part once I got home to look at them.
Also, have you heard about the Delightful Dozen 2011 calendar? They're on sale now for $15 and all proceeds go to the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) which helps women fighting all types of eating disorders. I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of this project. Be sure to check it out when you have extra time!
