Hey there folks!

Alrighty ho, so this is the last outfit, OH NO!  But not to worry people, on Sunday, Rhesa is going to photograph another six outfits, and personally, I reckon that these outfits are some of my favourite so far.  I’m just terribly disappointed, because two of my favourite outfits consist of Lydia’s clothes.  She has awesome clothes.

Ok, so you folks may be very happy that this time, Lydia (the mysterious stylist behind these posts) is back to styling for us.  She once did make an appearance here in summer.

Alrighty, back to this outfit.  That vintage camera sure does make me feel like a business gal going off to do some photography for the afternoon.  When I picture a business outfit, sometimes the rather boring combination of black and white comes to mind.  But it doesn’t have to be like that!  It would be awesome if the image of a trendy chick wearing a plain blouse tucked into a simple smart skirt covered with a very business-like yet fashionable blazer came to mind instead.  You don’t have to wear black and white to give off the proffessional business look, in fact colour, even if neutral, looks a whole lot better!  Unfortunately, where I live, everyone wears black in winter, no wonder winter can be so depressing.  Wear a bit of colour and brighten up your cold winters afternoon!

The use of some vintage accessories adds a more old-fashioned feel to this otherwise modern outfit.

Enjoy these photos, and the use of that awesome vintage camera.

Oh, and did you notice my retro striped nail polish!  Just havin’ a bit o’ fun. 😉

Enjoy your weekend!

My personal view of 50’s fashion consists of girls with curly hair wearing mid-calf length skirts that come out from the waist in a full circle.  She would also wear a fitted blouse tucked into the skirt with some pretty heels to match.  I once watched a film called Walk the Line in which the girl wore these amazingly full skirts, just like I’ve described above.  That set my picture of 50’s fashion firmly in my mind.  What I was most impressed with however, was that she wore them everyday.  If she went to the local store, or even fishing, I almost wish we all dressed like that everyday of our lives.  Maybe there’s something inside of every girl that just loves the feeling of dressing up!

Do you like the new look of Creative Touch?  My amazingly adept brother designed the header on Photoshop and also helped me choose the background image.  By now, I guess all of you know of my lean towards the 50’s fashion, so I just had to incorporate that in the look on this blog.  Oh, and those dresses are also a part of my 50’s fashion image.  I absolutely LOVE them!

Now, getting to this outfit.  I have tried to, in my own way, create a 50’s outfit out of the clothes that I have available.  I have yet to make one of those full circle skirts, but it is on the list.  In the meantime, I took a pattern off a lovely pleated skirt that is featured here, and with my mum’s help, I sewed this pretty floral pleated skirt and added some lovely lace from my stash as an edging to the hem.  I was not sure what to pair with this, but decided on a nice white blouse tucked into the top of the skirt.  Because the skirt has a rather busy pattern, I thought the plain colour looked nice.  I have also worn this skirt with a nice lace singlet (featured here) which passed rather nicely as well.  There are many options to choose with a skirt like this, so, I encourage you amateur sewers, like me, to have a go.  It is such a satisfying feeling once you’ve finished your project.

Enjoy this last outfit of the fashion photo shoot!

We hope to bring you another one soon, but in the meantime, Lydia and I have been discussing doing a makeup tutorial and a hair tutorial, would you be interested?  That may occur this weekend, so stay tuned…

We will now return from our brief interlude – the review on Modest Sea – and come back to, the White Shorts Series.

This second outfit has a definite summer feel, which is fitting, as the weather over here in New Zealand is improving!  I believe I feel another fashion photo shoot coming along, in which Lydia will be organising the outfits.  Wasn’t it great last time?!

You can also wear other blouses with these shorts, I have two button up blouses with floral patterns that look lovely with these shorts.  Very feminine, but still practical.  I really like the look of these two colours together.  There’s a place for lovely, soft pastels , but bright, bold, opposite colours look stunning together and really catch your eye.  Not to mention, that this outfit reminds me of a lovely summer sky, the bright blue expanse dotted with fluffy, white clouds.

Have a look at the photos below.  I hope you’re enjoying this series, my basic aim is to show you how you can achieve different looks by changing just one part of the outfit.  Experiment yourself, as I’m sure this principle can apply to lots of other items in your wardrobe.

Enjoy your summer and the upcoming lovely weather!
