Fashion Forward - Beautiful in Black and White

My aunt who lives in Stockholm has an incredible black velvet chandelier hanging in her living room. I was 15 the first time I noticed it and have coveted it (blatantly) ever since. She’s an artist, and the fixture is an ideal representation of her daring creativity, great fashion sense and eclectic personality. Though the chandelier may seem out of place in my predominately white abode, I can say with absolute certainty that I would just make it work. You got that Aunt Ulla? I would make it work! I mean, in the event that you’d ever like to let me “borrow” it. I’m just sayin’.

Don't forget to check out all the great Fashion Forward posts at Paper Pocket today!

I agree with Emily. I really like the duvet ;)

You know that I've always loved your interiors sets, but throwing in a pair of shoes as well? That's just pure genius!

Oh, and Aunt Ulla has fabulous taste - definitely a lady to steal (inspiration) from :)
