Romantic laces

Going through some old Romanian Harper's Bazaar fashion editorials I found this one which I have to say really impressed me. Although I am not a big wearer of romantic laces, I love seeing it worn by others. Muslim, tulie and precious lace give a great impact upon the feeling of the shoot, emphasizing the mistery of transparency.

Let's smell colours!

This exercise is for dreamers only. To be considered as a surreal game in the real world of conception.
Have you ever thought about smelling colours?
If yes, what scent each colour breathe?
If no, please try. It won't harm, will just develop your aroma sense.
