ball

Here are the pictures of our ball.  Finally I’ve found the time to write about it and put some pictures up.  It’s been several weeks since the ball, but we had such a lovely time and I fully intend to do it again!

We spent most of the afternoon setting up.  We put up tables, hung fairy lights from some white spray-painted branches and strung tissue paper pom poms from the ceiling.  Then the boys set up some nice lighting.  We all went home to pretty ourselves up and then came back to the hall ready for some awesome dancing!  We had a blast!  For about 6 months now, we’ve been having ballroom dancing lessons, so we danced the waltz, foxtrot, rock ‘n roll, cha cha, rumba and some group dances.  Everybody had a lovely time and it truly was a success.

My dress was bought off Trademe for $80.  Such a good place to buys ball dresses – my last ball dress was bought off Trademe as well.  My shoes are located here and honestly are THE BOMB (are lot more sparkly than the picture)!  Enjoy the photos 🙂  Oh and here’s the link to that short film I acted in a while back – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5ckn-W1UNU.  Please comment, we love feedback! 🙂

Because I was doing a large part of the running of the ball, with my brother, Jacob, I wasn’t able to have many photos taken and those that were taken exhibited a rather ‘unphotogenic’ Esther.  But anyway, we had fun.

New plans for Creative Touch on the horizon…Bless you all!

Hi there, I hope you all enjoyed those style tips from Ruby Girl in the last post. I’d encourage you to go and check out her blog to see more of her outfits and style.

Recently, my photographer, Rhesa, and I got together and thought it was about time for another fashion photo shoot.  So, we both put together a few outfits which I’ll be showing and writing about over the next week or so.  Lydia, our makeup artist and stylist wasn’t available, so Rhesa and I put these together.  See what you think, they’ll both sport inspirations from both Rhesa’s and my taste in style.  We are also using a few pieces of Lydia’s clothing as well.

Lydia has had this dress for a little while and as of yet, hasn’t worn it.  I thought it would be great to have a go in styling it.  Since the dress is strapless, Rhesa came up with the idea of wearing a blouse over the top and employing the very popular tie-up style that so many girls are wearing these days.  You’ll see what I mean in a minute.  This is the first time I have ever done it, but I was happy with the result.

By using basically only two pieces of clothing, we created a very cute outfit.  Although I am generally not an advocate of mixing prints, I think that this works well, as both the prints are small, one being light coloured, the other darker.  It is a rather simple outfit, but by mixing these prints I don’t believe it needs much more, just add some cute shoes and some jewellery and you’re set to go.

These next three posts will all employ the use of vintage props, so you’ll see something a little different.  Hope you enjoy!

It was such fun posing with that old telephone!  Oh, and just a note, the watercolour picture that you see in the background of two of the photos was painted by my amazingly talented brother… it seems as though I have a few of those 😉  He is a great artist, and that is just one of several hanging up in our house.

Have a nice weekend everybody, and stay tuned for more outfits and a hair tutorial.  I’m very inspired with styling hair atm, probably because of some tutorials I saw on Youtube.  I even tried to do a small french braid in my hair today!  It turned out…. um…  ok :-/
