Hi everyone,

Alrighty, here is the long awaited post of the vintage 50’s hens party that I told you all about. Now, I am so sorry this wasn’t on the Friday or Saturday, but it turns out, that my Easter weekend was a lot busier than I thought it would be. One thing I was busy with, was the new fashion photo shoot that we’ll be starting very soon. 🙂 I am really excited to bring it to you, as we have some new locations and outfits, and of course, our fantastic photographer has some great shots!

Anyway, about this post….
We held this hens party for a friend who’s getting married in a couple of months. We had a lot of fun setting it up in the morning, with bunting, vintage glasses, lemonade, jelly beans, lace, gold crepe paper, bunches of wildflowers, drapes of fabric, and homemade vases. We laid table cloths over all the tables, and placed doilies on each, with a vase of wildflowers, it looked so lovely! Have a look out for all of those items in the following pictures.

If you are interested, have a look at how I made the vases, it’s really simple, and I borrowed the idea off someone else who was decorating a wedding cheaply. All you do, is get some old glass jars, then you cover them with some nice paper, and tie it with some lace or ribbon. Whatever catches your fancy really.

Enjoy all the vintage outfits as well (we had to dress up in 1950’s style of dress)!

My good friend Ambley is wearing a lovely dress made by her amazing Mum, who is also making the bridesmaids dresses for this wedding I might add 🙂

This is the skirt folks, the one that I made with some help from Mum, I’m happy with how it turned out! 🙂 I am very inspired to start sewing again. It was actually rather simple, I think you girls should try your hand at some sewing, it’s very rewarding and satisfying wearing your own handiwork.

Lydia is a great organiser, so this was all right up her alley. I think we all did an amazing job combined, it was loads of fun, and I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time.

Everyone had to bring some nice cupcakes or a sweet thing. We all drank tea from some lovely floral teacups, and had a fabulous time!


P.S. I just want to thank all of our readers for being dedicated and looking at all of our posts. Without you, we wouldn’t continue, so thank you very much, you are helping us do something that we really love! We appreciate it!

And have a cup of tea!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to our latest fashion photo shoot, taken on Monday.  It is entitled Welcome Summer and in it there will be six different outfits and each post will include photos, tips, trends, and practical advice from Creative Touch to you!  We hope you’ll enjoy these next posts and that you’ll learn a lot from them, so without further ado, I give you, Welcome Summer!

This post is titled Tribal Inspired, because of the style of this outfit.  The skirt is handmade by Lydia and features bright and bold, large prints.  We have added a simple pink cami and brown cardigan to go with it.  We’ve brought it all together with a large brown belt that has gold detailing as you’ll see in the close up shot.  By adding a large bead necklace and a few wooden bead bracelets, we’ve finished off the tribal look.

If you’ve been looking in your latest fashion magazines, which to be honest, most of us don’t right? Well, even if you haven’t, I do occasionally and I’ve noticed that prints, large and small, have featured a lot. The tribal look and animal prints are also ‘in’ this summer. I know that we are more than half way through the summer but, these trends will certainly be ‘in’ for a few months yet. And goodness! Who cares if they aren’t. Wear them anyway and you’ll feel great and stylish!

We believe at Creative Touch that you should dress differently to the mass multitudes of girls wearing crop tops and cut-off denim shorty shorts. We all need our own personal style and that’s our aim, to help you find yours! Individuality is what people will notice, they’ll respect you for it. Also, it’s fun to develop your style and feel unique and different. 🙂 This outfit is definitely unique, and although not to everyone’s taste, it’s individual and for your interest, this is Lydia’s style of clothing.

Enjoy this outfit and we look forward to sharing the next one with you!

Yes, I was in a rather odd mood for part of our fashion photo shoot, you know, doing those poses all day long just gets to ya…

Enjoy your weekend!
