Bijou Caillou crafted its first inspiration board for you, my lovely chouchous. I think this will be fun, I am hoping to make it a regular show on the blog. It is essentially going to feature jewelry and vintage fashion, but Bijou Caillou finds inspiration in anything artsy, whimsical and mind boggling as well, so there will be a bit of that too. Let’s go!
Ulala Sisters breathe new life into vintage kimonos by turning them into modern designs. I am completely in love with the concept and the style. Check out their fabulous collection here.
@p_o_l_i_s_h_e_d jewelry is like nothing else. I mean, it’s in a class of its own, really. I had a hard time choosing the picture that would feature in this post because they are all unbelievable. Have a closer look here.
The Paris Love Locket Auction
After removing thousands of love locks from its bridges The City of Paris decided to hold an auction that would benefit charities. Pretty cool. Via Messy Messy Chic.
Jade Beach Pendant by Bijou Caillou
This is the first real “bijou caillou” (jewelry – stone) by Bijou Caillou! It is the result of an afternoon spent sifting through the pebbles of Jade Beach in Asahi, by the Sea of Japan. Is there any gem among those stones? I’m not sure, but I found a lot of inspiration looking at the various shapes, patterns, colors, and I’m very pleased with the way they look when they are set in resin. I’m hoping to make more “bijoux cailloux” in the future!
Nothing In The News
Nothing in the news: newspapers from around the world with nothing in them. Aaaahhh, wouldn’t this be a delight. Via Sideline.
How to clean a vintage dress
An excellent instruction post on The Trendlistr, for everyone who ever buys or sells a vintage dress.
These funky babies
Vintage plastic beads can be surprisingly fun. These were part of a necklace found at a flea market, they catch any ray of light very beautifully. I’m not sure what they are going to become in Bijou Caillou’s hands, but I love looking at them.
Best of Bridal Spring 2018
Ah jeepers… I’m already happily married… What to do? This collection is hair-raisingly breathtaking, I want to wear a different one of those bridal dresses each day of the week. Via The Fashion Medley.
Gifts to burn, and many more bad postcards can be found here. For a good laugh and a bit of nostalgia.
Voilà chouchous, I hope you liked this first inspiration board. Stay tuned, there will be more of them!
