i spy: a glamorous witch, sparkly Schiaparelli, a pipe-smoking dog

An intimidating yet rather glamorous witch, a post-war ball, sparkly Schiaparelli, and a dog with a pipe!  These are just a few of the beautiful and inspiring images I collected last month.  (You can see more of this by following me on Tumblr or Pinterest.)
