Has Spring Sprung Yet?

11 Mar

Hello Glamourites,

Clearly I have been MIA the past month…probably wallowing in my winter depression! In my opinion, it stayed WAY over its welcome; it’s March already mr. weather. On that note, I have obviously been looking  into spring trends and outfit inspirations to keep me calm. Check out the pictures below for the Spring 2014 trend insights taken from the Paris runway during Fashion Week. Hope everyone is having a great week xx Glamour Planner

The wide-leg pant is back! They are easy to wear and ultra-chic; billowy wide-leg trousers are making a come back on  the spring runways and streets.Springwideleg

All heights can wear these pants, not just the 6 foot models. If you are shorter look for slimmer on the flare and appropriate high waisted length. Springwideleg2

Contrast collar button downs are the new essential. Inspired by men’s dress shirt bringing in contrasting colours, textures or patterns, it’s a simple way to spice up your work outfit.  Springbuttondown

How adorable are the Tea-length skirts, somewhere between the length of maxi and midi (just below the knee). This length works perfect for any spring afternoon!

The ladylike hemline can be as modern as the midi depending what you pair it with, could be a cropped top which will accentuate your height!

The last inspiration for today is the introduction of the tuxedo trouser with a mix of the athletic pant making this sporty and comfy but still looking smart and sophisticated. Also try a streamlined silhouette in a unexpected white or reverse tuxedo.

BALLOONS

5 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

Balloons should be at every party whether it’s a kids party or a party for adults. It seems that we’ve always thought that balloons are only to be used for those under the age of 16 and after that other sophisticated decorating techniques are necessary.  Think again! Let’s tweak those balloons and make them  classy and appropriate for older gatherings. It is one of the easiest, quickest and most reasonably priced decor that you can use. Here are some innovative ideas to change up the every day balloon for your next event! xx Glamour Planner

This vintage look for the balloons is as simple as buying some tulle fabric and wrapping it up and finishing it off with any clasp or tie you choose.

Why not make the ceiling more eye catching by filling the entire space with balloons according to your party colours or just stick with neutral white. This creates an instant party feel.

For some outdoor or driveway decor create a special atmosphere by pinning the balloon strings down with golf tees or clips in the lawn. ac47715c4cff490fbf1c0e0d1fd8d856
