ALL blanc

23 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

Some of you have may already heard of an event called ‘Diner en blanc’ which originated 25 years ago in Paris. It is where people gather all dressed in white for a giant “chic picnic” where only the day before they have been advised of the secret location. Hundreds of people are invited and are expected to conduct themselves with the greatest decorum, elegance, and etiquette to enjoy this unique evening.

This event is held all over the world at different times and if you have a chance to attend, I would not turn it down! This all made me think of how fun it would be to hold your own “dinner en blanc” event or party (obviously not at that large scale). If you are wanting to throw a final summer party before August slips away, perhaps consider having an all white theme. Here are some more picture inspirations I found if this catches your eye. xx Glamour Planner

If you have a staircase like this or even a large lobby, tying balloons together into a tall tower gives a dramatic effect.  whiteballoonsSimple flowers or leaves that have been sprayed can be used for centrepieces at low cost.

Good Morning Glamourites,

I believe that what sometimes can be most stunning and dramatic in fashion is all BLACK and WHITE. It makes an incredible contrast and also allows for a greater focus on the little details or textures of an outfit. These inspiring  fashion pictures are all things I would wear and love to own in my closet!

This outfit combines both the leather material in the skirt with a beautiful detailed lace top and ruffled sleeves, making a classic combo.

W&BlaceWOW. What more to say? This bathing suit is to die for (not literally -just to be clear) but the vintage suit style adding to the totally glam gems is a show stopper for the beach! W&BbathingsuitOf course going all white can really set off your particular hairstyle of the day or if you have fab black heels to show off. W&BallwhiteCan this get anymore glamourous, I think not! This one-of-a-kind black dress with asymmetrical lengths is a beauty within itself as well as perfectly setting off a statement belt like this one.
