Wedding Wednesday: Dark Antoinette on Doing it BIG! Week

If there ever was an era that was all about “Doing it BIG!,” the Rococo era is it’s poster child. With its opulent decor and elaborate ornamentation, the Rococo period was an era of lighthearted themes and typically lighter saturated pastel colors such as in this painting by Francois Boucher:

Detail of "The Four Seasons, Autumn" by Francois Boucher

There is no greater icon of the late Rococo period than Marie Antoinette. When at court, Marie Antoinette donned some of the most elaborate gowns of this time period as well as her wigs and my personal favorite, her shoes. Here are some great examples of 18th century footwear similar to what Marie Antoinette might have worn:

Today’s Wedding Wednesday is an inspiration board with a dark take on the Marie Antoinette aesthetic inspired by a satire piece by Philip Dawe; printed for John Bowles in 1773 (pictured below) and a gorgeous Rococo influenced ensemble by Vivienne Westwood. I hope you enjoy it and that you have a wonderful day!

Valentine’s Day: Marie Antoinette Style

Well folks, it’s that time of year when the jewelry counters and stores start hocking those heart shaped pendants, roses that were $25 a dozen are now $50 a dozen, and men are told that diamonds are the way to a woman’s heart. How about bucking the norm and going a little bit outside the box? This Marie Antoinette set is inspired by the elaborate valentine on the upper left hand corner. Yes, the general Valentine’s Day type treats and gifts are present here such as a card, candy, and flowers; however, they are presented in a new light. If you are still at a loss for what to do for your sweetie today, I hope this provides you with a bit of inspiration as I was inspired by my friend, Bear’s, Facebook note regarding the day.

Stay tuned as I plan to do more than one set today.
