Starting from a young age I have always loved clothes. My mum would put me in one set of clothes in the morning and by the evening I would have changed at least 5 times. My sisters would moan and carry on but it was important that I had a different look all the time. I would always make sure my church outfit was accessorised and my shoes shined. My passion has developed and since opening my dressmaking business I have a sweet spot for amazing fabrics. I hope to pass the tradition on to my own little sweetheart one day!
Oh how I love old images. Especially the 1920's. Everything was so glamourous and detailed. The dress's were feminine and the women so gorgeous with their tiny waists. I only wish I owned some jewellery from the era as it is just divine.
I love images with depth and colour. These two had me staring at them for awhile and inspiring me to make one of these feather outfits. The photoshoot in the bottom image is stunning! So many elements can really make a shot work and this is one of them. Image credits to real to runway.
Wow you have to have a look at this holiday retreat in Mission Beach QLD. At this time of year I sit and think of places that I would rather be and this has to be the pick of the day. Beats the Melbourne winter anyday! Follow the link for all details. http://www.elandraresorts.com/mission-beach/resort.html
These are the most stunning cupcakes I have ever come across. I was thinking how they would get all the detail so perfect and realised that they are separate caps that are made and then placed on the top so elegantly. Perfect for a wedding cupcake or even an impressive High Tea with the girls. Image is from www.onestylishbride.com Great website for any bride planning a unique wedding.
Also I have some images from an amazing tea party of which these cupcakes could featured. Take a look at www.lmnop.com.au which is an online children's magazine.
The last image is from Martha Stuart Weddings which I regularly read for inspiration. Lots of DIY and plenty of ideas for parties and weddings. Take a look at the stunning rich red garland on the wall. Definately a D.I.Y project for a future celebration. I just love celebrations and happy times! ENJOY YOUR DAY!!!
I loooove long weekends. This has been one of the most relaxing and memorable weekends with my husband. Wining, dining and relaxing on the Mornington Penninsula has to be one of the best past times. Most of all staying in luxury accommodation over looking the bay lights of Melbourne. I had some truely momorable moments of which the food at Crittendan's Winery is still the best to date. Check out this image of our dessert to say the least, truely amazing!! Poached pear with home churned vanilla ice cream and brandy snap wafers. Also 3 gelati choices with tiny waffle cones all home made and very delic!
The fresh air and rolling country sides in the back areas of the Penninsula including Merricks Corner Store could not be missed. The snuggly wood fire crackling and the smell of fresh coffee on this cold day was so unique.
Time flys by so quickly and life is so precious. I have been way to buzy to just STOP and spend quality time with my husband Brad. I highly recommend time out like this when life just gets way too busy. A weekend not to forget!
I just LOVE DIOR! A dream of mine to one day run a range down the catwalk and stand so tall and proud like he does. I just loved these two images and had to post them. Nina Ricci's image here I just love the details. Credits to Weddings magazine annual edition.
I love anything that has a sense of exclusitivity!! This image is just one of many I found scrolling through my current wedding mags. Love it and truely inspired me to make another little bolero for myself. With todays wet, cold and miserable weather, why not!
This morning I have been to a truely inspiring talk from the two owners of Ink and Spindle. It has dawned on me that sometimes we all make starting something harder than it should be. I think one of the hardest parts about starting business is committing 100%. After today, I will be taking some valuable insights into making my creative business better.
