Envy Never Looked so Good!

Envy Never Looked so Good!

November 13, 2013  |  Design Envy, Inspiration, Stationery & Graphics  |  1 Comment

Notorious BIG bless his heart would be singing this song to us right now… listen to that voice, smoother than silk isn’t it?

But, we cannot help but be player haters, especially when we see super clean lines and a wedding suite that includes playing cards.  Through gritted teeth we say ‘Play on player’ and salute the design skills of Dry Design, might be dry by name but the truth is they’ve made us weep a whole load of tears over the wedding designs that they created for Dimitri and Elena.

It’s straight dastardly, straight wrong, and makes us want to reach for some straight tequila.

Colour Popping London Style

Colour Popping London Style

November 12, 2013  |  Inspiration, Styled Shoot  |  1 Comment

London with a pop of colour… you’re welcome we have a little style dream team who are behind this colour popping and pretty shoot, so let’s brighten up a miserable grey day with some colour inspiration.

So here’s more about how this shoot happened! French Made shared: Here is our latest shoot, brilliantly captured by Carla Thomas at The Grange Hotel near St Paul. Carla and myself wanted to create some bold and colourful inspiration. So as well as pure white, we picked candy-like pinks, blues and yellows. What a statement! Kerris from Blue Dove Weddings and events helped out with the organisation, preparation and styling.

When the brief was given to our fabulous team of suppliers, they all happily went along with the idea and turned our vision into the most beautiful, eye-catching creations.

Our models Lara and Carryl were styled accordingly by Lynette from Bridal and Prom hair design and Sheila Nessa for make-up. Lara had an Amy Winehouse beehive that matched perfectly the headpieces such as Fumbalinas’s big floral headband. Carryl had Afro hair which was easy to manipulate into a groomed stylish French plait then into pretty ‘victory rolls’. Sheila’s make-up was just as fun and quirky. The models’ outfits featured Dana Bolton’s bridal dresses, petticoats from Doris Design and bridesmaids dresses kindly sent by Luella’s boudoir. They also wore lovely accessories such as Bizarre Clockwork signature heart necklace, a belt, hairpin and clutch from Blackbird’s Pearl.

For the dessert table, some wooden letters, some lights one, a pink post box, some pompoms, cute stationery and of course, flowers provided by Fearless Florals were used to accent French Made cakes, sweets and drink jars. Mouth-watering biscuits, a cupcake bouquet and a cupcake tower as well as a dotted three-tier wedding cake were nicely displayed to tempt everyone’s palate.

Not only did Gwenda, our florist extraordinaire create some amazing floral pieces using hydrangeas, roses, peonies, chrysanthemums and leucospermum but she also took on the task of helping Kerris with the styling of each scene. The reception table showed a great variety of bright items for instance matching menus, cupcake soaps as favours and a modern vintage style photo frame. Its centrepiece developed into something quite organic, breaking the confines of the potted arrangements and spilling out onto the table. The same applies to the nightclub part of the shoot where she got a little carried away on the biggest tablescape. See for yourself, tada!

We’ve been delivering one liners when it comes to the outfits portion for a few weeks, but sometimes there are moments in fashion that are so important that a big fat juicy detail laden post is not merely required – but mandatory blogger duty.

We need to conversate about J.Crew and the Isabel Marant and H&M fashion shenanigans.

J. Crew is something that you lovely Americans are used to, but it has only just landed in a little space and place called London and how we love it, like a little fashion Nagasaki the store that happens to be the bomb.com opened for business last week on London’s Regent Street.

We have a big fat girl crush on the brands creative director Jenna Lyons who is the force behind the brand – so of course we need to share a few of our favourite things from this here store.

It is cold outside and ruddy cheeks air kissed by the November chill where it is at. So, today’s face is all about blush.  However, we want you to have the swagger of Coco Chanel and not Coco the clown so are three of the best for getting you blush game on.
