Колготки-маст хэв для русской зимы

В новом сезоне колготки-основная часть гардероба.

Как и с чем носить колготки*?

Правят бал цветные колготки: от зеленого до красного до синего и розового и узорчатые с невероятными загагулинами-принтами.

Уютно.

Хорошо,что синтетические капроновые блестящие колготки вышли из моды,выбирайте мягкий коттон, нежную шерсть и прочим натуральные материалы. В холодное время в таких колготках будет удивительно уютно, к тому же одежда не будет электризоваться превращая вас в прилипалу.

С зимними вешами.

Со тонкими свитерами и кардиганами подобранными в тон, плотные колготки будут выглядеть потрясающе.Легкие же юбочки и прозрачные блузочки  пока лежат в сторонке.

Массивная обувь. Плотные колготки требуют массивных толстых ботильенов.

Орнамент. Выбирая колготки к верхнему наряду убедитесь,что они имеют примерный орнамент,чтобы потом вы не рябили в глазах у окружающих.

Колготы или колготки?

Правильнее говорить «колготки»,так как «колготы»-это старинное слово бабушкинского лексикона.

Groomals {Christine and Johnny}

Good morning and happy Monday! We hope everyone had a great weekend and spent it with the ones they loved. Today we have Christine and Johnny’s sweet little groomal session shot by Cheri Hogan. Christine and Johnny were married August 9, 2011 in the Logan temple.  Inspired by the wedding dress Audrey Hepburn wore in “Funny Face”, her mom sewed her lovely dress! I absolutely adore the simplicity of the cut and the tea-length to show off her lace up shoes. And how darling is that vintage bike? What a beautiful groomal session!

Flower Feature Friday {Purple & Pink}

Oh happy Friday! As usual we have some gorgeous blooms in store for today’s Flower Friday Feature! Kathryn and Larry were married on July 28th in the Salt Lake Temple and had a backyard celebration to follow. The stunning purple and pink florals were designed by Carolyn May. I adore that the bride actually had two bouquets for the day! This is totally something I would do! If you love purple and pink but think it’s too bright for a fall or winter wedding then you are wrong! I’m a big believer that you can make any color work for any season… it’s all about what you pair it with. Bring in darker shades of purple and pink with accents of blue thistle for a perfectly unique fall event!

A big thanks to Elizabeth Taylor Frandsen for providing us with these beautiful images!

Kailani & Mitch {Featured Wedding}

Today we have a vintage meets modern eccentric wedding to share with all of you! Chauntelle Janzer with OpieFoto did a fabulous job capturing the unique style of Kailani & Mitch. I just adore the custom made cake topper by MilkTea. It’s perfectly fitting for the theme of this event and it actually looks just like the Bride & Groom! And how about the unique custom-lamp shade that was made with Kailani & Mitch’s engagement photos 35mm slides. We are all about creative ideas that represent you!

Featured Wedding {Chelsea & Landon}

Chelsea and Landon got married on June 24th in the Salt Lake Temple and then had a lovely backyard celebration at Chelsea’s parents house. Chelsea and Landon sure are one stunning couple and Annie Randall Photography did a great job capturing their special day! A big trend in wedding events is creating unique lounge areas for your guests to eat, drink and mingle. Love the use of different lounge pieces and unique pillows in this wedding. And I especially adore the wishing lantern send-off at the end of the night! Swoon!

Flower Friday: It’s All In A Letter

The technical end of the summer has almost arrived, here we embark on Labor day weekend! Like every Friday I wish for a great weekend for all of our readers and local industry pro’s, especially on a looooong weekend! Before I send you off I have created a little letter eye candy board in way of floral monograms. If monograms appeal to you, or perhaps they stream a theme throughout your event a floral letter cant be left out, its iconic!

I think perhaps the moss saying on the top left has my heart, it was created by the talented designer Anna Garforth. Her artistic hands blend seamlessly with the moss she works with to create custom sayings and designs. I can go for this on a brick wall, or any kind of wall for that matter, at any wedding! Next to that the hanging “SJ” is created out of silk hydrangea blooms, a colorful and simple way to welcome guests at the front gate and begin the monogram stream. The next row illustrates a few more moss creations, obviously an ideal natural material to be molded into a custom letter. A darling chair adornment that customizes down to the letter, perhaps a fantastic feature for the head table! And another grand entrance accentuated with custom moss letters! So you like moss but want some color too? The bottom left image is a great example of the blend of both worlds. Natural but colorful and whimsical! And then we have fresh hydrangea blossoms creating the letters “JH”. I think perhaps the simple use of floral elements in this format proves that nearly anything can be created from a bloom! Happy Flower Friday and have a great holiday weekend!

Custom Plaid Bridal Shower {Giveaway!}

If you are a bride then sure enough you will be having a bridal shower {or maybe a few}! We are excited to share some fun and unique ideas with this green + yellow plaid bridal shower styled by the fabulous Mara Marian-Harwood with Events by LMG. How darling are all those custom printable tags?! Well lucky for you we are going to GIVEAWAY a plaid shower customized printable tag set and printable invitation to one lucky reader courtesy of Pink Piggy Design! All you have to do is leave us a comment and tell us what you love about this cute shower! We will pick a winner on Monday morning!

Mara shares her expert advice and ideas on how to make your bridal shower one to remember!

When we’re offered the opportunity to plan social events other than weddings, we’re thrilled to get involved and help style parties that would otherwise be “the same old”. We’ve all been to dozens of “typical” bridal showers held in someone’s home, had cookies, played absurd games, watched the opening of gifts and left wondering what to do with the remainder of our Saturday afternoon. I am finding more and more clients looking for professional help with the planning and styling of all kinds of social events, including showers.

After determining our color palette of ivory, yellow and spring greens we chose to incorporate a plaid graphic to keep the feel light and fun. We worked with Pink Piggy Design to create our invitation and coordinating custom “printables” for dessert tags, water bottle wraps, mini candy bars, Hershey kisses, cupcake flags and more. The same colors, fonts and graphics used on the invitation were also used on the printables to create a cohesive feel and provide continuity of the elements. Printables are high up on my list of MUST HAVE items for showers and parties. Everything is fully customizable, so we were able to incorporate the couple’s name and wedding date onto multiple items, which made everything very personal.


Brown floral created floral arrangements that were used on our dessert buffet and through out the space that incorporated our color scheme and a selection of flowers we felt paired well with our whimsical stationery. A few floral arrangements are always a great idea, flowers immediately soften a space and create an environment which looks complete.


The confectionery geniuses at So Cupcake customized three of their standard vanilla, coconut and keylime cupcakes and frosted them to match our color palette. A good rule of thumb is to always stick to colors within your palette, and don’t be afraid to allow the different elements vary within a few shades- too “matchy matchy” looks too intentional and forced. Delicious French Macaroons from La Bonne Vie were served as guest favors packaged in clear cellophane bags and tied with personalized “thank you” tags. This is a really easy DIY anyone could manage. We opted to display the macaroons on our dessert buffet and also arranged them in a basket at the door for guests to take.


Even if your budget won’t allow for professional planning and design services, remember to think outside of the box and turn to professionals to help with other elements. A great event pro is versed in the latest and greatest in event trends; take advantage of their knowledge to make your party one of a kind.

Thank you so much Mara for sharing these fantastic ideas with us and thank you to Aubrey with Aub Photography for providing such lovely photos!

Nice Day For a Bright Wedding {Post Exchange w/Tessa Woolf}

Today we have our monthly post exchange with the best editor in town, Miss Tessa Woolf of SL/PC Bride & Groom. She has something fun and trendy to offer us!

Break out the sunglasses, ladies and gents, because bright colors are having their moment in the spotlight. From designer fashions to home décor, Day-glo shades and neon hues are popping up everywhere—even at weddings. Before you start flashing back to major bright mishaps from decades past, keep in mind these aren’t exactly the same bright hues that accompanied big hair in the 80s. Sure, there are neon yellows, lime greens, and hot pinks, but we’re here to show you how to achieve brights done right, not brights gone wrong. The new way to work with these colors is to 1.) Pair them with something neutral (making them a natural fit for white, cream, taupe, etc., wedding backdrops), 2.) Choose classic silhouettes in these modern hues, and 3.) Don’t OD on the trend.

Below are some of our favorite ways to play with this trend and incorporate bright hues in your big day.

Brides

Unless you’re really feeling this color trend, chances are you’re not going to wear a neon yellow or bright red wedding gown (although, this fire engine-red frock by Reem Acra could give any white dress a run for its money).

Instead, try working the trend by adding bright accessories to your attire: a purple suede high heel, a yellow patent-leather belt, a chunky orange bangle, a shocking pink or yellow clutch. Bridesmaids can also work these bright accessories into their wedding wardrobes, but they have more room to play with the trend, too…

Bridesmaids

You may not want to walk down the aisle in a colorful frock, but that doesn’t mean your bridesmaids don’t! Consider dressing your maids in hues like royal blue, bright yellow, bubble gum pink, and lime green, like these four Alfred Sung bridesmaid dresses (Alfred Sung dresses are available locally at Lily & Iris in Salt Lake City).

Another easy—and super affordable—way bridesmaids can work this trend is to pair their dresses with brightly hued tights, from green to red and blue to pink. (Colored opaque tights tend to be the most flattering, though patterned tights are another hot fashion trend.) Bonus for your bridesmaids if you’re planning a fall or winter wedding—they will look stylish and stay warm!
