It might seem a little early to mention Christmas, but I'm already mulling over what my holiday decorations are going to look like this year. One tree ornament that has caught my eye are these tinsel comet ornaments from D. Blümchen, above. Not only are they striking, but they reminded me of this:
This fabulous velvet evening jacket was designed by Schiaparelli for her Winter 1938-39 collection. That gorgeous celestial embroidery was, by the way, done by none other than Lesage.
I get positively starry eyed (sorry!) with anything adorned with comets and shooting stars. But darn it if I was a little stumped trying to find items decorated with the motif. Chanel's iconic shooting star jewelry was a given, but it's not easy to find fabrics, wallpaper, and china depicting shooting stars. I did find an embroidered shooting star Sarah Palin 2012 baseball hat, but I figured it best to leave that one out!
