Paris Haute Couture

 I thought I would show you some lovely images from the Paris Couture week
 As usual the guests showed up in some fabulous ensembles
 I loved this lace outfit in emerald green.
Bridal from Elie Saab

 I can't help but show you more of the wonderful  fairytale creations, delicate embroideries and intricate detailing.
 Some of them are a bit see through for my liking but if I had the chance to wear one of these I would just make sure I had a layer of fabric that won't let you see my legs!
 Stunning dresses by Elie Saab that highlight everything that is feminine.
He builds his creations with layers of loveliness maintaining a form of sophistication.
 Lots of different ideas and creations form all the shows in Paris.
 Hoods were on show on the Versace catwalk.
More lovely designs so feminine and sophisiticated
Pointy high stiletto heeled shoes with a fine ankle strap
Long see through sleeves
Off the shoulder neckline using every inch of shoulder line, with short sleeves and fine belt showing of the  tiny waist.
More layers of loveliness, with 3 di flowers cascading over the kirt
Still plenty of off the shoulder dresses along with shoulders covered with delicate detail.
Plenty of ideas,better go and go some sewing, I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you.
I will finish this lot with one of my very favourites.
Also congratulations to Ralph & Russo for being the first British Brand in over 100 years to show at the Paris Haute Couture week. I will try and bring you some photos of their designs for my next blog.

 Sleeves are definitely a big feature in girls dresses at present and veils are back in all shapes and sizes.
 Whether it is a big skirt or a shapely figure hugging style is usually personal preference.
 Its your day do it your way.
Or maybe your family have a wedding dress heirloom for you to restyle or adapt to suit you.
I hope you enjoyed this array of ideas for your dress.

New Inspiration

With a new year comes new years resolutions. My resolution is to put more images online of all the things I make and sell in the shop. With more and more people researching and shopping online I need to use my online images like my shop window.

They say 52% of couples who get engaged do so at Christmas /New year time, so congratulations to all of you who did so. I have already meet some of you but I look forward to meeting more of you and helping you with ideas for your wedding.

 We all want the best out of life, to be happy, healthy and prosperous. I should have put health before anything, we forget without our health  we would be lost. So to be healthy we need to take care of our bodies, eat healthy, sleep properly and excercise to keep fit. If a bride or groom wants to loose weight before a wedding I am happy to encourage them to be healthy and sensible in achieving their goals. It is easier to take something in than to let it out.

" Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life" this is something my husband always says to me.
