Clutch Love ♥

InspirationThe Perfect Pear9 Comments

I've been looking around at some super pretty clutches on etsy lately. I'm going to a super special event (eeep!!!) in a few weeks and I need a clutch so I was thinking of making one! :) I'm just looking around etsy for some inspiration and these are my favorites that I've found! Which one would you get?

 Okay so I just about melted when I saw this!! :) I have to admit, the photography is really beautiful and that wood background (loooveee!). But I mean the clutch is gorgeous as well, love the vintage, but modern feel.

I drew up some examples that I was thinking of making for my event! I was also thinking of adding an all sequin one which would be fabulous too! :) Which ones your favorite?

Ideas?

Pretty Places // Studios

There are very few places I think are more inspiring than a studio that represents who you are as a business owner and as a creator. Lately I've been wanting a studio of my own, and as a small business owner I would love to have a place where I can put all kind of inspiration on the walls, have little meetings and create beautiful things. Oh the dreams! But for now, I guess looking at other peoples pretty places will have to do! :)

Like a circle of inspiration, ya know? Do ya love it?!?! I DO!! p.s. click the images to see the sources!

a while back! I've been reading her blog ever since and not only does she have such a delicate way with words but her photography is the epitome of beautiful. I'm constantly inspired and in awe by her amazing work that today I thought might be the perfect day to share it with you! :)

Looking at her photos always makes me feel like I'm wrapped up in a cozy blanket with some tea, watching old classics. nostalgia.
