These are the first lot of photos from Lydia’s fashion photo shoot!  I’m very excited about these outfits because they are just a little bit different and classy.  I also have to say that the photography really is just too cool.  We took advantage of the backlit effect and used a reflector.  Yep, that was my job this time… holding the shiny thing.

Anyway, believe it or not, I (for once) had a stroke of genius in the creation of this outfit.  You heard right.  I put this outfit together!  At the moment, a group of us are having ballroom dancing lessons, and my goal has been to wear something different every week.  It’s been ten weeks…. and let’s just say that it’s starting to get a little difficult.  Recently, I’ve been given two new dresses (one of which will feature on here soon), so it’s been nice to wear a couple of new pieces.  I think I wore this dress on week 5 or 6?  We were given this strapless, fitted dress from a friend.  I’ve worn it a couple of times with a bolero, but I really wanted to try something different.  Thus the lace crop top.  I love it!  Lace, mint and vintage small print – who couldn’t like it, right?

This outfit is quite matchy matchy, but Lydia spiced it up with the addition of some arm candy and a cute necklace.  And doesn’t she look pretty stunning?  Enjoy the photos and I hope that this has again inspired you to mix and match your clothing.  You might be nicely surprised at the result, as I was.

Like my 4 inch wedges?!  They’re my only pair of really high shoes, but I’ve been wearing them a lot.  Ok, it does make me about 6 foot, but hey, life’s too short to be ashamed of your height.  And when you live in a family of tall people it’s really not that bad.  😉

I’m just a little bit happy ’cause it’s the end of term!!!  Evenings will finally mean something other than school work, so I can get back to posting on my blog.  Here’s to the next couple of weeks!  Enjoy 🙂

DSC_9904I always think it’s a little bit neat when people use one piece of clothing in several different ways.  I’ve worn this as a skirt a couple of times before transforming it into a dress, but I’m starting to think…. I kinda prefer it like this.  This isn’t really something that I do often, but when faced with brick walls and desperation, it’s nice to have a couple of pieces like this in your wardrobe.  It’s only elasticated along the top, so I chucked over a simple white tie-up blouse.  Surprised?  …hmmm, me neither.  I promise I’ll try and introduce some other styles in our next photo shoot 😉  This post is hopefully another bit of inspiration to those of you who are interested in utilising your wardrobe in the best way possible.

Before I skip away, I would like to address a point that I hope I’ve made clear on this blog before, but if not… here goes.  Watching a movie recenting – My Big Fat Greek Wedding – I was reminded of this.  Any girl can make herself look nice.  Any girl!  Not just the slim, or those with long, flowing hair, but every girl.  With a change in style, perhaps some skin care, a touch of mascara, new hair style, any girl can look good.  I’m not saying that we should be obsessed with the way we look, ’cause, let’s face it, nobody finds that attractive, but we should care.  By caring for your self-image and perhaps making a few necessary changes in your style, you can feel good about how you look and present.  The main girl in the movie above transformed from this, to this.  Perhaps this is slightly unrealstic, but what I’m trying to do, is encourage you.  We’re all on a journey in our style, but keep on going, take care of yourself and you’ll receive the confidence that you need.  This only addresses the outward confidence, inward confidence comes from something far deeper than outward beauty.  Lasting inward confidence and beauty comes from God.

Enjoy these photos, and note the last one especially.  Nissi has shot photos for us a couple of times and I was very pleased to be able to feature her on the blog.  She’s Rhesa’s sister and I’m just so grateful for their help from the beginning. 🙂

Coming up on Creative Touch:  On Monday, Lydia (my older sister) asked Rhesa (my photographer) to do a photo shoot of her wearing several different outfits to send some to her boyfriend.  Kinda cute, aye?  Well, they turned out beautifully, so I’ll be putting them on the blog and talk a little bit about each outfit.  After all, I did put one of them together 😉  Hmm… my orginial fashion sense is really coming out!  Probably because Lydia’s too busy to help me these days…

Have a lovely rest of the week!  I’m quite liking this mid-way change of seasons where I can still wear shorts and t-shirts and throw a cardigan or scarf on top without getting too hot.

lots o' layers, photo 1

Here is another classic summer’s outfit.  I say classic because I have yet again used one of my favourite outfit mixes.  A skirt and top belted together with a shrug thrown over the top and a lace scarf wrapped around my neck (more to add style than to protect against the cold).  Classic but still chic.  I’ve used some very interesting colour combinations in this outfit.  All I did was look at the skirt, then pick out some pieces of clothing that matched the colours.  It turned into a beige and mulberry mix.  Good tip there.  If you’re uninspired in regards to your outfit colours, then pick some out of the skirt or top etc.

I went to see Les Miserables today.  It was fantastic!  I love singing and watching movies that focus around songs, so consequently I loved this movie!  I’m listening to the soundtrack right now actually 😉  I loved how they filmed and recorded all on the songs on set.  It made it that much better and I loved the voices of all the actors and actresses.  Go watch it!  I highly reccomend it 🙂

Do enjoy these photos and I hope that it inspires you to branch out a bit in your style.  I hope that this next week is a lovely one for you.  I’m making the most of the summer holidays by going ice skating and visiting the beach.  Good times. 🙂

I’ve really been enjoying singing Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan.  It’s a beautiful love song and I just thought I would share that with you 🙂

God bless you all.  What a lovely week it has been 🙂

Hi Everyone,

This is our last outfit in the Welcome Summer fashion photo shoot, which is just as well, cause I was starting to get a little embarrassed everytime I posted with the title Welcome Summer. It’s far from it here. I still defy winter and have not worn a long sleeve yet, however, saying that, I have worn more than a cardigan over my t-shirts.

This outfit is very summery indeed. The light colours, combined with the light lace fabric and cute, knee-length skirt, spell summer like nothing else does… except summer of course.

The lime yellow colour is rather interesting, not quite the bold yellow or stunning lime green, lime yellow gives you the best of both worlds with lemmons and limes. I mean, we couldn’t be happy without either of them right?

The skirt plus blouse with cardy look, is the classic going out and about outfit. I wear it all the time, and many similar looks have been featured here on this blog as I’m sure you’re aware. Saying all that however, this is an easy type of outfit to put together, with different results every time. It looks very feminine and by tucking and belting you’ll feel stylish as well. I think we all have our, “I can’t be bothered to work out something complicated, yet I do want to dress nicely,” days.  So remember this equition for feminine, stylish dressing.

Skirt + blouse + cardigan = perfect out and about wear

Follow this if you’re having a lazy day and you’ll be right.  However, it’s your choice what to wear, and you’ll capture your own unique style as you pair together your favourite skirts and blouses.  Have a look here, here, here, and even here for examples!  You get the idea, with variety nothing will look the same!

Enjoy the photos and as always, we love to hear your feedback.  Oh, and my skirt is almost finished, I dare say you’ll see it soon enough. 🙂

See you soon with a craft post!
