Every once in a while I like to dedicate a post to inspiration. When I say inspiration, I mean the part of the fashion industry that takes us to a somewhat dream world. Now, I am all about being realistic and enjoying the most important things in life, which always seem to be the most simple I’ve come to realize. Sometimes, however, it’s nice to be inspired and taken into dream world. Elie Saab never seems to fail at this, and these gowns from the 2012 couture show, certainly prove this true.
