Like A Picture

Another Thursday, another Like A Picture. I’m loving this series. And speaking of series, thank you for your sweet words on yesterday’s Two of a Kind post. I might not make that a weekly feature, but I do like the idea of making it a recurring series. I sort of enjoy having constraints to work within, and if I’m being honest I really enjoy the thrill of the chase; trying to track down two unknown items that are eerily similar. It’s partly why I  like these Like A Picture posts so much. Finding a beautiful photograph to start with is half the fun, and then searching the internet high and low for a matching blanket and candle is just the icing on the cake. You know me and my internet-squirrel tendencies.

In her post yesterday, Theresa made reference to the “blog hop” that I’m sure we’re all guilty of: clicking on a blog and then another blog and then another and finding something really wonderful along the way. This happened for me a while back, with a tumblr called Veanad, and when I stumbled onto it my jaw dropped. It’s an endlessly scrolling page of amazing, light-filled, photographs of Parisian interiors, beautiful, well-dressed women, stunning cityscapes, and drool-worthy purses and decorative items. I then proceeded to pin almost all of them. The photograph I used for this post came from Veanad, and so did both of this week’s.

I’m convinced she is actually wearing that blanket and not a shirt, so close are they in texture. I sort of love her sequined bra situation, too, though I’d never be able to pull that off.

I need to find out where this house is and convince whoever lives there to let me take it from them. I’m thinking maybe Monaco? Somewhere drenched in sunlight but not tropical, definitely European.

Oh, and speaking of European, did I mention there are only TEN DAYS (10!!) left until I fly to Brussels?

  • Ooh, I like the top as well! Now I’m off to look for one like it

    • Ooh, let me know if you find one!

  • yeah nice bra, gives her good cleavage doesn’t it! How to sex up a chunky knit jumper.

    Well done Erin, two outstanding matches as alway. You’re still doing brilliantly well at this!

    Could be Cuba though or Buenos Aires? Probs La France though. x

    • Right? I could use a bra like that. Thanks for the kind words! It’s getting a little more difficult each week, which I sort of like. xo

  • I am surprised you didn’t mention that heavenly leather jacket, or maybe leather isn’t really your thing?? The drape on it is incredible and it looks buttery soft. Ok, enough drooling over the jacket. Job well done, per usual. Not that you asked, but is it obvious which one is my favorite? That black candle paired with what looks like a hand knit blanket…Nice! Don’t get me wrong, I like the second one also. Thanks for the mention.
    Oh, and Erin…Ten. More. Days. !! :)

    • Oh, I did fail to mention that jacket, my bad! It does look so buttery soft. Almost like it’s suede on one side. Maybe it’s crushed velvet? Now you have me drooling, too! I had a feeling you’d like that NARS candle :)

  • I loooove the look of those blankets, they look so amazingly soft! Infact I want to wear them this spring in Sweden BRRRR! Maybe if I cut a hole in them and wear them like a poncho….

    • That’s a good idea! Ponchos are back in these days, or so I’ve heard. But at the price of that second blanket, I’d stay far far away from it with scissors! ;)

  • thank you so much for stumbling across my tumblr and featuring it on your blog! i’m so happy to hear that you like it and have found lots of great photos to pin. your blog is great! xx.

    • Whoa! Thanks so much for stopping by to comment! That’s incredible. Your blog is an amazing source of inspiration. xoxo
