Anyone else out there addicted to "So You Think You Can Dance?" I've never missed an episode. I danced when I was younger, and will literally watch anything (no matter how bad or cliche the plot is) that involves great choreography. This week I found myself hitting rewind on the Tivo for yet another Mia Michaels routine .... the "butt dance." Yes, she used the butt as inspiration. It wasn't really the butt that got me inspired, it was the music and costuming. I love that vintage, 1940's lingerie, French kind of charm. This lead me to a inspiration board:
1st row: Bleu garters, vintage French mirror, Elie Saab dress, image from The Paris Apartment
2nd row: Reem Acra gown, vintage Vogue pattern, Vogue images
... and this lead me to a new invite design
which I'd love to mail out with a thin lace beaded ribbon wrapped around it...
