Sunny wedding event

DSC_0220

Hi all, we had a very successful and fun Saturday in the Thainstone wedding exhibition. Hubby had been so helpful and supportive all day (not his cup of tea for this ‘girly’ event), he did well!

Peekaboo! Who’s behind the frame Winking smile

She has a lot of admirers, lol Winking smile

The exhibition provided a unique opportunity to showcase our wedding collection and generated an excellent response. There was a real buzz around the place and turnout was impressive. Altogether an enjoyable and productive day.

Visitors complimented our arrays of collection and the unique styles that we offer

We had a very good attendance, visitors complimented our wedding dresses and everything went smoothly (except the leaking iron steamer, lol!). Weddings are coming in thick and fast, please don't feel hesitate to contact us if you would like to book a consultation and private viewing.

I don’t have sweet tooth and not a fan of cake, but I give 5 star for that cake, everyone loves her creation!

We would like to thank you “Ideas In Partnership Ltd” for accommodating us in the exhibition. I’m off to Malaysia until 9th June and looking forward to seeing what the next exhibition is like. Will keep you posted!

Anya Hindmarch Chic Royal Wedding Kit

prince-william-and-kate-middleton-official-engagement-photo-525x785

Just nine days to go from now, before Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot, royal watchers note little excitement in Britain -- but believe me wedding fever is just around the corner.

#6069319 Prince William and Kate Middleton pose for pictures at St. James's Palace on November 16, 2010 in London, England. Clarence House today (TUE) announced the engagement of Prince William to Kate Middleton. Kate has been given Princess Diana's wedding ring.  Restriction applies: USA ONLY   Fame Pictures, Inc - Santa Monica, CA, USA - +1 (310) 395-0500

One of the photo that I love (eyeing on the regal blue dress by Issa London) after they announced their engagement.

Kate Middleton – the rise of a royal fashion icon

Middleton never seizes to amaze us with her natural royal-esque style.

Kate has a distinctive taste for elegant and timeless pieces most suitable for a princess.

Ever since the second-in-line to the throne William and his university sweetheart Kate announced their engagement in November after an eight-year romance, palace officials have only sparingly released information. Visit London, the capital's tourism body, predicts that an extra 600,000 tourists will flock to London on the day of the wedding, pushing the number of visitors up to 1.1 million compared to a normal day. (I’m going to miss this event! Sad smile)

Britain lives by Royal Wedding fever, and to be infected are also trademarks of fashion. British designer Anya Hindmarch, join the excitement of the most awaited marriage of the last decade. As a symbol of good wish to the two spouses, Anya Hindmarch has created a special Royal Wedding kit, which has already gone to steal.

Here’s the cute Royal Wedding Kit, a limited edition cotton tote, heart-shaped confetti, a flag and a tattoo initials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Royal wedding kit contains everything necessary for those who assist at the wedding in the front row. I bet we will see many girls on television waving the kit signed by Anya Hindmarch!

If you are attending or just want to pretend that you are, I suggest picking up this very chic Royal Wedding Kit from Anya Hindmarch. It’s also a priceless memorabilia. Smile

Classy and Fabulous

tumblr_l4pk9pyMP21qbezbuo1_500

The cocktail dress is probably the most versatile of all special occasion looks. Although the little black dress is the universally accepted look for cocktail, jewel-tones, brights, even rich tapestries translate well to this short formal dress.

Most cocktail dresses serve as a blank slate for you to accessorise, so have fun with adding pearls, diamond-looks and gold or silver. Adjust the silhouette of the cocktail dress to work for your figure, keeping the top and waist slim and fitted for the chicest look. For example, if you want to hide wide hips, opt for a dress that is strapless or has cap sleeves, a fitted waist and a full, knee-length skirt.

I will normally choose a cocktail dress with a contemporary twist and an all-over trim fit, which is great on most body types as long as the fit isn’t too tight to pull anywhere.

I believe in this, "A woman should always be two things: classy and fabulous.” I have to admit that most of my inspiration putting all the collection in this blog together comes from things I see and read, plus the realistic world around me. Think classy, you”ll be classy!
