Today’s feature is the embodiment of what we think engagement shoots should be like. As you scroll through Bernard and Kitty’s photos by Hyvis Tong, you’ll almost hear your favourite mushy song playing in the background. Each photo tells a charming story, and you can definitely feel magic in the air. Of course, the sight of cherry blossoms always make any occasion extra wonderful, so today is bound to be all kinds of lovely. Enjoy this little glimpse into perfection!
I swear, the design tandem behind Marchesa (Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig) has some serious super powers. I don’t know how they do it, but I really feel like they creep into people’s minds and bring to life the most beautiful dresses we only see in our dreams. Every new piece is literally a whole different fantasy. It’s spooky but totally amazing at the same time. I just have no words to describe how much I love this collection. It’s totally deserving of a (virtual) standing ovation. Bravo!
Oh, to have the chance to even touch one of these gowns from Ashi Studio‘s Spring/Summer Collection! Daring structure, gorgeous texture, and divine full skirts are yours for the swooning in just a moment. Each and every piece is fit for modern royalty. Today’s Fashion Friday is truly the epitome of class. Have a look for yourself, and you’ll have just as much to gush about! Happy Friday!
We’re going all bohemian with today’s pretty project! Macrame decor has been gaining popularity in the recent years, especially with the current boho craze. It’s a craft that can get really complicated, so we thought we’d start with something really basic and easy to make — a macrame backdrop/curtain! I know this might still look extra complicated to make, but trust me — it’s really much easier than it seems. Take note that the instructions below are for a backdrop that is 1.5m tall and 1m wide, but feel free to adjust the measurements according to your desired final size. Let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
- Macrame cording (which you can get from Flying Dragon in Sham Shui Po) and scissors
- A wooden dowel or alternatively, a braided cord like below.
1. Cut 16 pieces of rope that are 3 meters long (twice the height of the curtain). Take a piece of rope and fold it in half. Slide the loop end under the braid (or dowel).
2. String the open ends of the cording through the loop and pull it tight to secure over the braid.
3. Repeat with each piece of rope, placing them about 2 inches apart until you reach the end of the braid.
Who was it that said “Paris holds the key to your heart?” Those words have never rung truer than in Camille and Gerard’s engagement shoot by Newin Uy. There really is no other city out there better known for its killer combination of scenery and romance. So with blue skies, balloons, and some way-too-lovely outfits, our hearts are definitely gonna be singing today! Enjoy, and au revoir!
