Grammys // 2015

8 Feb

Hello Glamourites,

If you didn’t watch the 57th annual Grammy Awards tonight, (or want a recap) I have for you the best dressed, worst dressed, trending colours and makeup looks for you! There are many stars who attend this evening and it is hard to pick out a select few from all the gorgeous gowns and suits! Take note, I would have included many more if I wanted to make this post similar to a novel.

BEST

I am coming from a very non-basis corner as I am not one of the screaming T-swift fans, however I fell immediately in love with her dress choice tonight! Her teal gown designed by Elie Saab was both sophisticated, edgy and classic with the window front showing off her legs and Giuseppe Zanotti fuchsia heels. The matching Lorraine Schwartz earrings in an aqua shade made her blue eyes jump out!

Katy ALWAYS puts her own twist into every look and this one is no different. I am happy that she didn’t go for the complete shock factor but still stood out with a semi-nude dress with glitter fringes, saying she “just wanted to shine bright like a diamond” jokingly to Ryan Seacrest. Adding to this she had statement chandelier earrings and her beautiful lavender hair.Grammys3

Ciara is typically not on my radar but tonight she most certainly was. She wore a one-shoulder ruffled gown by Alexandre Vauthier made with sheer black material creating a draping train.  Grammys

Chrissy Teigen looked stunning in a fitted Gucci gown with subtle cutouts from top to bottom. She a definition of a fashionista! Grammys7

MAKEUP

Trending makeup this year at the Grammys generally was very understated in natural style, which I appreciated and found much more beautiful than being caked in products.

Beyonce showcases this beauty look perfectly, as Queen B only would. She looked fresh, bright and truly like a natural goddess! She was dressed in a custom black Proenza Schouler gown. Grammys5

Gwen also followed this trend with a clean face, simple tinted lip gloss to allow her dramatic jumpsuit by Atelier Versace to be the focus.

TRY AGAIN

Rihanna, I’m sorry, I respect your style but unfortunately this dress I cannot deal with. ri

Iggy you were on point with your Armani Privé dress in the popular blue tonight but the hair needs something different. This just reminds me of a birds nest. Grammys6

COLOURS

To finish up it’s Pharrell in Adidas who is following with the influencing colours of the night including black, blue shades and white. To mention a few in black gowns this year was, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, Meghan Trainor, Jessie J, Kelly Osbourne and many others.  Grammys8

Dreaming in White

5 Apr

Hi Glamourites,

Recently as the weather has started to improve (here in Ontario that has meant going into the positives instead of negatives), all I have been able to think of is when I can start pulling out my spring wardrobe! Here are some pieces that I hope to purchase and take inspiration from. Hope everyone is enjoying some spring weather xx Glamour Planner

Fresh + Clean

26 Jan

Hello Glamourites!

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable weekend and taking some down time to relax and recharge. My weekend has been fairly quiet but also with a little fun of course. It has been freezing here which doesn’t make it very enjoyable to leave the apartment. With it being January we are always reminded about new beginnings and starting fresh…I have taken that same outlook and applied it to design and possible room interiors. If we have a clean environment, it will rub off on us and encourage us to be the same way. Hope you get some inspiration from these pictures xx Glamour Planner

The contrast between bold and simple in this living space is ideal, the straight lines from the chair frames, circle table and window rectangles. Then the juxtaposition using the black and white to make a dramatic but while still clean atmosphere.

Fresh&Clean

This bedroom makes me feel I am taken back a few centuries. The detailing in the moulding and the bed posts are beautifully rich and gives this a pristine vintage look. Fresh&Clean3

For a smaller{ish} living room space this is made very grand, thanks mainly to the high ceiling which also allows too for the dramatic  chandelier. In this case, where the room is smaller and gets an abundant amount of natural light, having only black & white is perfect. Fresh&Clean2

On a smaller scale, an office desk can feel much more organized and clean if it has a neutral colour pallet. Also consistency for supplies and accessories helps with the visual aesthetic of the space.     Fresh&Clean4

The bathroom is a very important room as it is the first place you go after waking up. You want that room to make you feel fresh and therefore come across that way in the design. Here the simple lines and warm tones from the wood create a welcoming and awakening area.

Go to Basics

17 Sep

Hello Glamourites!

I hope you are having an enjoyable week so far! I know I am already looking forward to the weekend myself! In fashion we are constantly trying to find out what the latest trend is, the newest designer or the biggest name brand. This can be difficult and tiring, believe me. Sometimes I find it helpful to go to the back of my closet and pull out the basics. The ones that are so simple that when put together they make a statement. I love doing this because it’s a great opportunity to wear those clothes that you haven’t been able to be wear lately. You feel much more creative mixing and matching until you chose a winner outfit. These outfits I have selected are what I would think are most likely in many of our closets (or something similar) and are appropriate for many occasions. Take a look and maybe tomorrow you will find yourself digging in the back of your cupboards. xx Glamour Planner

For this outfit I really enjoying the solid shade colours, black, grey and white. It creates amazing dimension while looking simple and classic.

With these cool days creeping up on us there is nothing better that your old big knit scarf. Pair it with some leather and lips that pop.b4dc18c64c8fe70e44e2d2e0111812cd

Try that old-school braid look your Mom always used to do…or change it up with a fishbraid! 78593271d9fec0bfe0207fd55783b059

This tee is awesome because of the clean V neck but the leather sleeves gives it some edge to the basic look.70bdda0066b9869784f2324044dfef9e

Why not dress up those summer shorts with a baggy top or crop top and your fave heels. 51062e2a7e5ecfc0bf8e7f4ba305af6c

Nothing gets more back to basics with the white tank, jeans and black heels. Easy, vintage and fab.

Summer Kicks

9 Jun

Hello Glamourites,

Sorry for not posing anything in the past couple days, I was busy helping with a Red Carpet Ball event which was lots of fun but took up all my time! Besides that the past week I have seen all these summer shoes that I want to run out and add to my shoe closet. I am what you could call a shoe-ahcolic….so I thought it was time to dedicate an entire post to only shoes! Enjoy and hope you like my picks…

Stay glam xx

 

These bold heels with the plated gold detailing with the black straps is a fabulous shoe for dressing up in a summer maxi or skirt!

I ADORE these Dolce Vita mint sandal flats (plus I’m obsessed with mint at the moment…) they are sleek and simple and could be thrown on in a second.

This pair looks gypsy inspired to me and the red is the perfect pop of colour, just be careful you don’t get a sandal tan with these ones!

Okay so these may be a little outrageous but how fun would they be for a backyard BBQ! I would still purchase them I must admit.
