Oscars 2015 Red Carpet

23 Feb

Morning Glamourites,

Last night was the 87th Academy Awards where many actors and movies were recognized for their hard work and success. Some of the winners included, Birdman for Best Picture, Julianna Moore for Best Actress in Still Alice, Eddie Redmayne for Best Actor in The Theory of Everything, J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor in Whiplash and John Legend and Common won Best Original Song for “Glory” from Selma. Besides all the golden Oscar awards that were given out, there were countless stunning gowns on the red carpet, which is really what we what to know all about! There were many dresses in bold statement colours such as Rosamund Pike in a Givenchy red gown and Scarlett Johnansson in an emerald Versace dress. Both were popular colours of the evening but not THE trend of the night; this, however, was light shades, from pure white to bronze nude tones. I put together a collection of my picks from last night for you to browse and enjoy xx Glamour Planner

Emma Stone wasn’t exactly in white but looked absolutely stunning in an Elie Saab chartreuse shade dress which could be the most talked about fashion piece last night.

Reese Witherspoon in a custom Tom Ford dress – hugs her body perfectly!

Oh J-Lo, always giving us something to talk about…and last night was no exception for her fashion choice. Her Elie Saab sparkly nude dress with a plunging neckline probably had more material then all the other dresses combined, it proved to be a challenge walking off stage but she pulled it off.

Had to share a funny picture with you all from last night of tight embrace between Emma and Jennifer Aniston who was wearing Atelier Versace.

Your Inner Snowman

29 Jan

Good Afternoon Glamourites!

Today I’m in a wintery mood as the snowflakes are all I can see when I look out my window! Also I seem to be obsessed lately with everything white, according to my pinterest board. I find during these long winter months I want to create my own light and by wearing a pop of colour, or in this case white, your day immediately feels not so gloomy. I know some may say that wearing white anytime after Labour day is basically a crime but I say go for it! Life is too short to not wear what makes you feel your best. I hope everyone is keeping warm and that you will all embrace your inner snowman this week!

The use of mixing textures with this outfit is on point; adore the knit and jacket blazer combo! snowman

The perfect outfit to be comfy but still feel acceptable to go outside ~ try mixing shades of white for top and bottoms. snowman2

Here’s my beauty inspiration for white: line your eyes with a white liner or shadow to make them pop!

Add one item that’s not white to make the rest of your outfit really stand out ~black and white, forever a classic.

I’m obsessed with this nail colour, it looks like snowflakes on your hand!

Try mixing in white with a print or pattern for more geometric appeal.

Winter White

16 Jan

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone had a successful week and have some fun plans for the weekend! Unfortunately the temperature here is too cold for me outside to be motivated to go outside and do anything. Instead I decided to put together this post about using white in your design choice for the house. Many people are intimidated by white because they are afraid of it looking boring or giving off a cold feeling. However, using the appropriate textures and shades of white, dependent on the space it can feel extremely cozy and elegant. Take a look at some inspiration pictures I pulled from pinterest and maybe you will dare to try to go white!

For this kitchen the white cupboards are accented perfectly against the black counter top and the beautiful silver wall tiling. Using these bold colours will be enough of a statement without having to accessorize the kitchen at all which inevitably clutters up space.winterwhite

White in the bedroom may seem like a huge hassle but it is well worth it! You will feel as if you are in your private hotel suite every night and it also allows you to change up throw pillows or other accessories seasonally for something new.winterwhite4

I don’t think anyone could argue they wouldn’t want to curl up in this living room for an intimate night in.

Using white marble in the bathroom allows for easy clean up after bath time and will bring your mind to another place while you relax during your “me” time.

If you are still hesitant about going the all white route, you can add a statement piece in the room, done below with emerald bar chairs.

Black is back

20 Mar

Hi Glamourites!

In the interior design world black is back! Grey and shades will stay in the loop and still be seen but black is making a dramatic statement. 2014 is all about creating a shock factor as well as keeping things modern. Black does just this and along with crisp white fixtures creating a powerful space. Enjoy the inspiration pictures below! xx Glamour Planner

Do you Ombre?

12 Jul

Hello my Glamourites!

My obsession with ombre started last fall when I decided I wanted to try something new and different with my hair so I tried the dark to blonde ombre. I loved it too – it was fun and I found I could do many styles with it to transform my look. Naturally I am now drawn to ombre inspiration detailing or themes which leads me to this party idea of ombre! It’s more unique then just picking a colour or two to stick with but using one and playing on the different shades and adding more dimension. Hope you enjoy these pictures and maybe give you some guidance for your next party.

How easy would this be, grab 3 or 4 different shades of balloons and place them in a fading order around the party. Adds a new element to just boring balloons.

Here is a much simpler ombre cake version that you could even make at home yourself if you didn’t want to spend a ton of extra money.ombrecake

Of course you always have to have a party dress that fits the occasion! This gown is stunning with the fitted top and ruffling down into lighter shades.
