Nothing says luxury in the fashion world more than couture, so allow us to indulge in our couture obsession a little while longer! Taking inspiration from the most unlikely combination: the Sixties and Russian Tsarinas embellished as a Fabergé egg, today’s Fashion Friday collection is all about understated opulence. With classic silhouettes and divine craftsmanship, these pieces are made for the strong, sophisticated, and beautiful woman. My eyes are set on the white beaded halter number, the dark teal velvet wrap dress, and, of course, the mesmerizing bridal finale. Take a look below, and let us know which looks you’re saying yes to.
It’s been a while since our last DIY post, so we figured it was time for another installment! Today’s project is a super easy date banner that you can use as a prop for your engagement session or for your save the date photo or even as decoration for your engagement party or wedding day. We created a printable template featuring custom brush calligraphy by Lauhaus.co. Let’s get started!
First, some supplies:
- A4 size card stock, printer (not pictured), scissors, hole punch, 1.5 meter ribbon, metal eyelets and eyelet punch (optional)
- Materials for decoration. We played with some watercolor and gold glitter for our examples, but feel free to get really creative!
What better place to celebrate beautiful beginnings while honoring one’s roots than in an opulent place that embodies history and tradition? You can just imagine how our hearts sang when we saw this stunning shoot by Hyvis Tong Design and Photography at the Tai Fu Tai Mansion. The combination of striking architecture and rich details make for picture-perfect backdrops. It’s no wonder our couple, Krizia and Richard, looked so effortlessly regal. After their formal shoot, they move on to a casual and fun time by the Shek O beach. A perfect way to end a day well spent if you ask me!
Our Monday morning is gonna get a whole lot sweeter with Jessica and Leo’s soft and dreamy couple session. This pair of university sweethearts exuded carefree romance, moving from moment to moment with so much ease. What probably helped was Jessica’s experience as a budding photographer herself (check out her work here). With Savour Production behind the lens and some handmade props in tow, they thoughtfully take us back to their alma mater where their story began and share with us pastel-perfect moments that will surely leave sweet smiles on our faces.
Jenny Packham’s latest resort collection paints us a picture of a modern English garden soiree attended by the city’s trendiest women. It’s a treasure trove of elegant but fun evening dresses that you can consider for your wedding festivities. I especially love the chic white romper and the sleek white dress with a deep-V and crystal detailing — so unique and edgy. Come and take a good look, and let me know your favorite in the comments!
