The Art Scene with Olga Parkers



One of the many reasons I love fashion is due to the endless styling possibilities that can

be created around an important dress. By accessorizing correctly with some chic

accessories, such as shoes, jewelry and makeup, one dress can be worn on various

occasions to different events.

My favorite dress of the season was a sophisticated strapless dress by Sherri Hill, I loved

this dress so much that I could not keep it hidden in my closet. Luckily, I had some

glamorous events to attend: one being a Wedding Reception and an Art Gallery

Exhibition Reception of artist Morgan Fisher at Bortolami Gallery. Both events were on

the same day so I strategically had to style the dress so that it would translate from the

fashionable Art Scene Reception to the formal Wedding reception in an outdoor garden,

all the while looking flawless.


To accessorize, I selected a gorgeous Faux-fur shawl in a pastel pale blush shade, which

was several shades lighter from the Silver, Beige and pearl-like neutral color scheme of

the dress but looked sensational layered together. The shoes were very important to

complete this look so I opted for a beige suede stiletto pump with silver crystal details,

which matched the undertones of the dress ever so slightly. Picture 1930’s glamour,

adorned with luxurious textures of various lace, crystals, plush suede all beautiful in

unison. The styled outfit was indeed ideal for both occasions: I re-positioned the shawl in

different ways around my shoulders during the wedding for a luxe evening look, and

draped over one shoulder for the day gallery reception.

The overall styled look was very light and pretty, so I decide that slender jewelry would

be best. I wore the Marie Antoinette Tassel Necklace from the Olga Parkers Jewelry

Collection, in a Rose gold and Gunmetal finish styling to loop the tassels through center

of bead strand lariat. The rings I wore, were ever so slightly placed on three fingers, each

with a couple of midi Black Widow rings. As for the makeup I created an intense Smokey

eye with bronze eye shadow finishing with black liner, volumizing mascara and blush

pink lips. My manicure was a dusty lavender polish.


I loved my outfit and the Sherri Hill dress so much I didn’t want the night to end. I

received numerous compliments on the dress and the accessories. The ‘Gatsby inspired -

modern day fashionista’ look flawlessly transitioned to both events. This look can be

worn to many other events, such as a homecoming, a birthday celebration or a New

Year’s celebration. I guess I’ll have to find other events to attend so I can flaunt the

gorgeous little dress.

A Gothic Masquerade
Thursday November 05, 2015 1 Comment

A Gothic Masquerade!



I received an invitation to a Venetian Masquerade Ball. The dress code: strictly requiring

masks, the venue: mysteriously somewhere in New York City only to be revealed the day

of the Ball. I was overwhelmed by excitement and began to plan my attire. My vision was

to look like an exquisite flapper-girl from a Gatsby banquet with influences from the

Phantom of the Opera.



Being a fashion enthusiast I was beyond excited! I love to dress up for all occasions,

especially so for a glamorous Masquerade Ball. This invitation was especially dear to me

- as I starred in the Fashion feature film in promotion for this Venetian Masquerade Ball.

I was so proud to have my handcrafted Tassel Lariat Necklaces and rings from the

OLGA PARKERS JEWELRY Collection highlighted in the film.


I immediately scouted for a mask but not just any mask, something authentic to the

theme. I found the perfectly flattering laser-cut mask in Black Gunmetal with crystal

details and scalloped edges. The mask was cleverly concealing just enough to make my

identity nearly unrecognizable, while revealing skin beneath and accentuating my eyes

creating a sultry cat-eye.



On my quest to find The Dress - I came across a breathtaking black Scala slender gown,

delicately beaded with black and silver sequins in an Art-Deco fashion. I instantly fell in

love with the long length, the revealing back and the deep V necklines, edges outlined in

linear silver sequins further accentuating the décolleté. I have always found backless

silhouettes to be extremely flattering to all body types. The backless neckline was very

modestly sexy, flattering and above all extremely Elegant. The gown fit perfectly over my

curvy physique, the ornate lines of the beading elongating and slenderizing. I love how

glamorous and extravagant it looked! The style was ideal and just what I had envisioned!



The day of the Masquerade Ball - I selected from my box of OLGA PARKERS

JEWELRY
treasures the Grand Gothic Ash Tassel Necklace in metallic gunmetal. The

long length of the necklace allowed for folding the lariat in half and delicately

intertwining the beads before looping the tassel ends through the middle creating a

necktie. The matte and metallic texture of the dark Gunmetal Hematite beads

complimented the glimmering beads on the dress. The necklace ever so gracefully

positioned in the middle in my décolleté, framed by the silver edging on the extravagant

Scala gown. I selected several midi-rings to wear on each hand for a delicately poised

look, stacking the blackened Silver Black Widow rings alongside the yellow gold Square

shank rings.



My makeup look was inspired by the style of vintage Hollywood Starlets. I made sure my

complexion was porcelain-like, contouring where appropriate and highlights along the

brow arch, top of cheekbones, and cupids bow of my lips for an extra glow. I focused on

my eyes by creating a winged cat eye over natural tone eye shadows and volumizing

mascara. I finished the look by painting a red pout using a crimson matte shade lipstick

from YSL.



To complete the look I wore a pair of black patent leather stiletto pumps, sky high of

course and a matching miniature black clutch to enclose my lipstick, compact mirror and

perfume. The evening felt like a Whimsical Fairytale and I, Cinderella, attending a Ball,

except the banquet would continue past the midnight hours and I was swept away in a

black limousine. Dreams Do Come True!

That Cinderella Feeling

That Cinderella Feeling!



I live for the days where you get to get up early, get your hair and makeup done, and slip

into a beautiful gown to go to a party. It makes me feel so nostalgic - like I'm back in my

princess PJs and I'm watching Cinderella for the first time. Nothing comes close to when

you look at yourself in the mirror after you're all dolled up and all you can do is twirl

around. I love that feeling and I just long for those invites to weddings or birthday

parties were I can get all dressed up!


For me - Fall is a season of new beginnings. As a recent graduate, I find it extremely hard

not to miss homecoming season or even the prospect of some balls and events in the

early months of school! I, also, have a few co-workers and friends that are getting

hitched this year which is always an excuse to buy a dress and a new pair of shoes! But

honestly I think I stumbled upon a winner with this Sherri Hill two-piece. It has such an

elegant sweep train and the most beautiful beadwork that I just couldn't pass it up. I

actually wore something extremely similar to this dress in a navy blue color with a slit on

the side for my graduation party. BOTH of these Sherri Hill dresses make you look and

feel like a princess.

Mini-Guide to the Perfect Wedding Timeline
Thursday September 17, 2015 Post a comment
title image


Mini-Guide to the Perfect Wedding

Timeline



Not every wedding timeline is exactly the same. Depending on your religion and the

length of time between your engagement and the actual wedding date, you might have

more time or less time to complete wedding planning essentials. Planning a wedding,

even a simple one, can be stressful. It is important to make a list and a timeline of what

you expect to accomplish and set specific goals and deadlines. Here is a sample,

simplified mini-guide to the perfect wedding timeline.



Up to One Year Before



Engagement Party. Some couples forgo this party, but family members may

appreciate an engagement party to celebrate the event.



Set the Date. Once you set the date, you can start making actual plans. Therefore,

setting a date should be a priority after you are engaged.



Choose the Wedding Party. The sooner you do this, the better. Your wedding party,

particularly the maid of honor and best man, should be put in charge of specific tasks to

alleviate the stress on the bride or groom.



Establish Colors and Themes. Choosing these early on will save you stress. When

you choose your colors early, you can also start hunting for sales with decorations,

stationery, and anything else you need with your colors or themes.



Start Shopping Around for a Venue and Decorations. Many venues will allow

you to at least put down a deposit for use on a specific date up to a year in advance. Try

to limit the amount of deposits you make, however, as many are non-refundable.



Start Wedding Dress Shopping. While it’s true that a lot can happen in a year, the

wedding dress shopping can take a while. Keep your eyes open for that perfect gown

starting now.



8 Months Before



Shop for Bridesmaids Dresses. Whether you’re making your own or purchasing

from a designer, get your bridesmaids together for fittings and get this taken care of well

in advance.



Plan Honeymoon. If you’re going somewhere exotic for your honeymoon, now is a

good time to jump on purchasing tickets, reserving hotels, applying for passports, and

anything else you need to do to make the experience go smoother.



Send Out Save-the-Date Cards. While these are common for most weddings, Save-

the-Date cards traditionally go out six to eight months before the big day. This gives your

guests ample time to prepare for your big day.



Cute Wedding Invitations

3 Months Before



Send Out Invitations. Official wedding invitations should go out two to three months

before the wedding day, but you can always send them out a bit earlier. Always give your

guests the plenty of time to prepare



Order Cake. Your cake designer will want to sit down with you to discuss your

expectations and make plans for delivery and setup.



Take Care of Wedding Day Transportation. Whether you’re arriving and leaving

in a carriage or limo, make sure you know how you’re getting to and from the wedding

venue, including transportation to the salon if you’re getting your hair styled.



Arrange for Tuxedo Rentals. Ideally, the groom should take care of this.

Groomsmen should be fitted for their tuxedos. Arrangements should be made to ensure

the tuxedos get to where they need to be on time.



Hire a Photographer. You can hire a photographer sooner, but you definitely want to

have one booked by the time you’re three months from your wedding date.



1 Month Before



Bridal Gown Fitting. Have your final fitting and any last alterations made to your

wedding dress.



Create Wedding Program and Timeline. This will help you to visualize how and

when everything should happen on your big day.



Take Care of Marriage License. Find out what you need to do to apply for a

marriage license. Some areas require drug testing or a waiting period before the license

is granted, so it is important to take care of this in advance.



1 Week Before



Confirm Reservations, Guest Count, Caterer, and Everything Else. With one

week to go, you need to make sure that the venue will be ready, the caterer will have food

there, and who is and is not coming. Confirm all other important events as well,

including honeymoon arrangements, transportation, and roles of the wedding party

members.



Create a Guest Seating Chart. Make a visual chart of who will sit where so there is

no confusion and everyone has a place.



Arrange for Post-Wedding Cleanup and Returns. You and your spouse should

be able to focus on the honeymoon after the party is said and done. Arrange for someone

else to clean up the venue and return any rental items.



1 Day Before



Go to Rehearsal. If you are having a rehearsal, go to it and enjoy.



Make Sure You Have Rings, Marriage License, and Other Essential Items.

The maid of honor and best man should hold onto the rings on the big day. The night

before your wedding, ensure that you have the rings with you, the marriage license, and

any other essential items such as passports for honeymoon travel.



The Big Day



Enjoy. You’ve spent the last year planning for this big day, so let it all unfold and try to

enjoy it. It can be a whirlwind of emotions, but it will also be satisfying to see all of your

careful planning come to fruition.

Date Night with MissLaur


Hi everyone! I'm Laur from www.MissLaur.com. Ever since I was little girl I've always

been into dress up and when I started dance classes - I felt like my whole world took a

turn for the better. From the tutu skirts to the awesome leotards we got to wear - I was

truly in Heaven. This was one of the main reasons I started my own blog. It was my

outlet to share my love of fashion and beauty with my friends, family and readers. I

remember buying my quinceanera dress, my junior and senior prom dresses, and even

the dress I wore to the launch of my bakery from NewYorkDress.com!


I usually go on NewYorkDress's site at least two times a week but one day I saw this

particular piece. There is just something so powerful about pearls and polka dots! I

couldn't help but be mesmerized by this cute and chic Sherri Hill two-piece. What I love

about this two-piece is that it is a go-to piece for a wedding (because of the details),

birthday party (because of the polka dots) and even a date night. I'm definitely the type

of girl that loves to get dressed up no matter the occasion so I wore this for a date night

at one of my favorite restaurants - Waterside Restaurant - along the waterfront that has a

perfect view of the city. I paired it with a vintage Coach purse I found in my mom's closet

and a few jewelry pieces from TJ Maxx! Everyone was complimenting me on how

delicate the top was with the pearls and how chic the skirt was. They could NOT believe

that they were a pair!

5 Amazing Makeup Tips

5 Amazing Makeup Tips


To help you look amazing on your big night out!



Makeup can be a tricky monster to perfect, especially on a special occasion. These 5

simple tricks, will help you master your makeup and feel your best on your next big night

out!


1. The Dot Method



Ever tried to wing your eyeliner and end up with asymetrical wings? We all have, but

with this simple trick you can easily make both eyes the same. Here's how: Apply eye

liner to the lid as usual on both eyes stopping at the outer corner. When you're ready to

do your wing, just simply make a dot on both sides where you want the wing to end.

Connect the dot to your already completed liner at the outer corner and your done. If you

need to perfect the line, my recommendation is to take a q-tip with a little eye makeup

remover on it and clean up the line. Dab the eye with a cotton ball to remove any makeup

remover left over and you're done!



2. Fixative



There are a ton of makeup fixing sprays on the market, but by far the most cost effective

is by Evian. You can get the 5 ox bottle for about $10, so it's really the best bet. Spritz

your face before you start applying foundation for a healthy glow. Spritz again when

makeup is complete and this spray will help your makeup stay on longer, without drying!

It's also just amazingly refreshing!



3. The Cupids Bow



Want the appearance of fuller lips? Well this trick will have your pout on point! After

lipstick or gloss has been applied to the lips take a small amout of any shimmery skin

toned eyeshadow (1 or 2 shades lighter than your skin) and apply to the cupids bow. You

can use a brush, your finger, or... finally a use for those small sponge appliquators that

come with your eyeshadows. The added highlight adds the appearance of fullness to the

lips, and you can't beat that!



4. Soft Perfect Brows



Ever wonder what that thing was good for? Well we have 2 uses that will make this

inexpensive brow brush your best friend! Brows are important, they frame your face and

when they're perfectly accentuated seem to complete a makeup look. But there is nothing

worse than hard, dark, obviously drawn on brows and with this trick your brows will

always be soft and perfect. The trick is to pencil your brows with a pencil 2 shades lighter

than your hair color (or a soft cold taupe if you're extremely blond). Once you're done

use the soft bristly end of this tool and work out the product. Brush the hairs back and

forth through the brow and up and down at the very front near your nose. Brows, check!



5. Unclumped Lashes



Do you want this look without any clumps and no falsies? It's easy with any mascara and

a brow brush. The small comb side of the brush is made to separate lashes, but have you

ever applied mascara and tried to use the tool to unclump them? It's a huge mess! The

trick is to use the tool to apply the mascara, not to fix it! Take your fave mascara and run

the brush over the comb side of the tool. Once it has product on it comb through your

lashes. Repeat a few times and you will have perfectly separated and elongated lashes. I

bet you never thought a brow brush would be so handy!




 

Hot Trends for Homecoming 2015

Hot Homecoming Trends



As August approaches we're gearing up for Homecoming 2015. The fall collections have

already started appearing and we're here to divulge the top three trends for this

homecoming season.


Flirty in Florals



Florals are back big time! Designers like Sherri Hill, Hannah S, Rachel Allan, Angela and

Alison, and La Femme know this super girly pattern is the perfect choice. Pair with soft

hair and makeup to keep the print the center of attention.



Crop the Mic



For the second season in a row every designer is featuring the crop-top trend. It adds a

youthful edginess to even a demure style. With this trend go all out with dramatic hair,

makeup, or accessories...just not all three at once.



Fifties Flare



Whether it's a tea-length or mini dress you can't go wrong with a little vintage

inspiration. A full fifties flared skirt is all the rage for a slightly more sophisticated look.

Our tip, don't be too literal keep the rest of the look modern for a well rounded, and

thought-out look.

Our Favorite Prints for Fall



A friend once told me "Prints are personal!" And she was right, everyone has their own

personal opinions on what they like and what they don't. Now that fall is around the

corner, for some reason, we're having an affinity for prints. Our favorites are brocade,

polka dots, and florals. In this post I'll show you some of my favorites of each. Enjoy, and

have a "printastic" season!


Brocade




Florals




Polka Dots



 

A Frozen Summer

A Frozen Summer


The white dress by La Femme is a classic, no matter what the weather, but in the

Summer it is definitely one of my favourite choices of colour. This stunning white two

piece is absolutely perfect for any occasion, whether it be prom, an evening out or just

having a stroll down the beach after dinner on holiday.


The long, white skirt flows beautifully in the breeze, while the rhinestone encrusted bodice

with lace detailing adds a touch of luxury to the outfit, and makes it truly special. I felt a

little bit like Elsa from Frozen while wearing this, although unfortunately an icy

background was not available. So I went for an ‘Elsa in the Summer’ kind of look, with

bohemian hair and a backdrop of ancient trees.


This dress is absolutely timeless and remains perfect for any event throughout the

changing seasons, whether you choose to wear it surrounded by flowers in the Spring

or by snow in the Winter.

A Belle in France

Or: How to attend a black tie wedding



Black tie weddings can be difficult to navigate in terms of attire, so

its best to go with the classic rules of wedding etiquette when

choosing what to wear. The term 'black tie' can be applied for

weddings taking place from 6pm onward, and the standard attire for

a woman is a floor-length gown - even if there is still plenty of

daylight. An exception to this might be an extremely formal tea-

length dress covered in sequins or beads, but I would always err on

the side of a gown.


A recent trip to France culminated in a black-tie wedding at a

chateau outside of Paris. - it was an amazing experience! I wore this

most beautiful red dress by Nicole Bakti that totally fulfilled my all

my wildest dreams of old Hollywood glamour. For this occasion I

chose to complete the look with simple silver stilettos, vintage

rhinestone earrings, red lips and side-swept curls.


Next time I wear it - that's right, I will definitely get a second wear

out of this beauty - I imagine going with a very dark smokey eye,

nude lips, and deep jewel-toned accessories in either emerald or

lapis. Nude platform pumps would be perfect to complete that look

and maybe a sleek, flat-ironed low ponytail, too. I can't wait!


Finding the perfect dress for this wedding could've been really

difficult. I started wanting something red and with a bit of coverage

for my upper arms (I'm a bit insecure about them). I quickly found a

few options, added them to my favorites and then narrowed them

down from there. Quite simple and fun, really!


I only hope I find more fancy friends who have black tie weddings so I can start

shopping for my next gown!





 

Modern My Fair Lady

Modern My Fair Lady



I have always had a passion for musicals, and one of my all time favourites has to be My

Fair Lady starring the incomparable Audrey Hepburn. No matter how hard you try, once

you’ve seen it you will never forget the scene at the racetrack when a completely

transformed Eliza Doolittle enters in that extravagant black and white gown, complete

with giant hat. This stunning ballgown, by Sherri Hill, made me feel like Audrey for a

moment, recreating that classic scene in a modern, yet timelessly elegant way. The two

piece makes it a little different, with the bodice encased in beautiful black gems. While

the skirt is made from layers upon layers of petticoats, to add a real princess feel.


We shot these photos on the beautiful Brighton Bandstand, famed for it’s elegance and

beauty, and I felt it was the perfect location to capture such a magnificent dress. It really

is modern My Fair Lady all over! All I need now is a gigantic hat and I could be off to the

races!

Cocktails in Morocco

Cocktails in Morocco



This amazing Scala beaded nude dress was perfect for a semi-formal cocktail party. I

wore it to a Moroccan- themed rehearsal dinner at a wedding in France! A pair of simple

silver stilettos complimented the beads and sequins and let all the attention focus on the

detailed bead work. It looks like you're wearing a dress made of metal!



This dress would also pair really well with this season's gladiator sandal trend - go for a

high-heeled style to keep it dressy.



My favorite thing about this dress is that it's full coverage yet incredibly sexy. The nude

fabric blends well over skin, making it look like your body is covered and draped in

sparkles. The long sleeves cover up your arms if they're not your favorite body part,

while the shorter hem shows off your legs.



The best part of the night? Hearing this over and over again: "That dress! Wow - you

look amazing. Like Marilyn Monroe, Happy Birthday Mr. President amazing."




 

The Homecoming LBD

The Homecoming LBD!



It’s very rare that I find a dress that makes me feel like an absolute Disney 

princess, but this stunning number by La Femme hit the nail right on the 

head. Words cannot describe how much I am in love with this dress. With 

prom, homecoming, and graduation happening all over the world, the 

season’s trends appear around little black dresses and sparkling minis. This 

one combines the two for the best of both worlds; beautifully crafted with 

layers upon layers of petticoats, topped with intricate black lace and 

twinkling diamonds. Not only is this dress stunning, but it’s also incredibly 

comfortable. I know I didn’t want to take it off, not only because I felt so 

glamorous in it, but also because it felt so fantastic to wear. We took photos 

in the dress down in the gorgeous English countryside in the wondrous 

Stanmer House; a beautiful, historic building in the Sussex Downs. 

Wearing this dress in such a beautiful old building really felt like I was 

stepping into a novel where a fantastic ball might take place.
