A Touch of Green

This is the lovely Emily, she  hired  this strapless sweetheart neckline emerald green gown for her birthday recently. Her theme was Oz, and her guests were encouraged to wear ‘A touch of green’. I think she sure looks the part.

I wonder if she had some red shoes on to match the occasion?

Winter Sparkle!

This lovely group pictured here, attended Emma’s 18th, (2nd from the left) at the Hurlingham in December just gone. The theme was Winter Sparkle, and don’t they all look magnificent?

Carol, Emma’s mum, (pictured on the left) wore an evening gown from us in navy and lace, full length. She couldn’t have looked more perfect in my opinion!

 

Winter White Gala

600 hundred guests embarked on Kensington Palace for their charity ball, Winter Whites Gala, which took place on Tuesday 26th November. An event which raises money for the charity, Centrepoint, for homeless young people. An astounding 1million was raised on the night.

Celebrity guests included, Prince William, Jon Bon Jovi, and Taylor Swift. This handsome trio pictured, were lucky enough to attend this event, and boy did they enjoy it! The two ladies hired their whole outfits from us, and we were more than happy to help make them sparkle for their winter ball.

Monochrome in Stockholm

This lady hired the black and white Jovani evening gown to stand out from the crowd recently, to a wedding in Stockholm.

She looks simply sensational. Cute looking couple!

 

How To Measure Yourself

You may want some help when doing this.

Height

1. Stand straight with your feet together

2. Start at the top of your head and pull the measuring tape down to the floor (you may need some help with this)

3. Don’t wear shoes

Waist

1. Your waist is usually found 1inch above your bellybutton

2. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, not so tight so allowing you to breathe comfortably

Hips

1. Your hips are generally about 7” below your waist (depending on your size)

2. Looking in a mirror, find the widest part of your hips

3. The measuring tape should brush across both of your hipbones

Shoulder

1. You start by measuring at the back, from one edge of the shoulder socket to the next shoulder socket

Bust

1. Relax your arms

2. Keep your bra on, as you’re not measuring your bra size

3. Pull the tape around the back across the shoulder blades, then under your arms and across the fullest part of your bust – take measurement

Dress Etiquette Tips for Women

* Remember, wear clothes that suit your body shape.

Shoulders: Broader shoulders should try and avoid shoulder pads and cap sleeves.

Legs: If you’re wider around your thighs, try to avoid tight-fitting trousers.

Shoes: It’s very important that the shoes fit you. Otherwise you’ll incur a lot of unwanted pain.

Painted toes: If you’re wearing open toe shoes, remember people see your feet, so make sure they’re painted!

Open-toe shoes: Not to be worn with nude tights. Wear a closed toe shoe if you must wear tights.

Hems: Make sure the hem is neat and there aren’t any stray stands. This can look messy.

Boobs or Legs?: You either opt to show your legs off or flaunt your chest, but it’s never both.

Low-cut Tops: It’s not very lady like to show too much of your chest, it’s distracting and can make people feel uneasy also.

Brightly Coloured Bras: Only should be worn in the right situation, not at work under a sheer shirt.

VPL: If you’re not a fan of the G-String, and would prefer slightly bigger smalls, but worry about showing your VPL. Why not opt for seamless knickers, they’re perfect for wearing under most garments and very comfortable too.

Animal Print: Can look cheap and dated. If you insist on wearing it, then make sure it’s strictly keep to one piece on your person at a time.

 

Tips to you on evening shoes

Tips to you on evening shoes

1. Don’t wear tights or stockings with an open-toed shoe, but remember to get those tootsies polished!

2. Cocktail dresses call out for beautiful shoes – but, for a long dress, the shoes are less important, they should always be pointy with a delicate heel, not some clumpy round toed Mary-Janes.

3. If your shoes are heavily embellished with diamonds, sequines or brocade they may catch on the hem of a long gown, so be warned!

4. You could dress up a court shoe with some shoes clips, or a pair of inexpensive diamante clip earrings, they work just as well. BUT…they are easily lost on the dance floor, hence the advice on getting something whose loss you won’t regret. You could always super-glue them for extra strength.
