Pretty as a Peacock

Peacocks signify wisdom, grace, beauty, and nobility. They were my main source of styling inspiration for our wedding, and will always remind me of that special day. These bad boys are dressed to impress, and will go to great lengths to catch a pretty lady's attention!

I've been ogling this magnificent peacock mirror for years. At first, I wasn't sure if it was a bit too ostentatious for my taste. Over time, however, I found myself increasingly mesmerized every time I laid eyes on its organic lines and saw the spray of light it sends glittering around a room. This is an exotic variation of a sunburst mirror that would bring a heavy dose of glamour to any traditional or modern space. It is devastatingly beautiful.

Alas, the mirror comes with an equally devastating price tag. Its $2,399 - $4,400 tickets have kept me strictly admiring from afar. I actually gasped out loud the other night while flipping through Restoration Hardware's spring catalog. RH is offering a peacock mirror for a mere $895! ~Insert Chris' rolling eyes here~  Still an absurd amount to be paying for a mirror, but quite a steal compared to Mecox Gardens and Wisteria's prices. Hey, a girl can dream :)
