Wedding day at the races, Inspiration Board

I've always adored the 1964 musical film, My Fair Lady. It's a timeless romance between a snobbish professor and a simple flower girl set in both high and low society London. The Ascott opening day race is one of my favorite scenes and that is the inspiration behind this board. Black and white mixed with some feminine details.

  2. I luuurve My Fair lady. I'm not sure if you remember this but when we went to London you and I sang on the stoops of several houses a rendition of "on the street where you live"-- Good times! :)

  3. Hahaha - One of my FAVORITE scene's from that film. Funny, I have actually been recently thinking that I need to re-watch it. Seeing this might finally inspire me to do it. And - I doubt Alex has ever seen it, so...
