Pink Flower Love

Dress Me Up

We can enjoy the warmth of the spring finally, but I just realised that summer is on the way, I keep receiving invitations, so I seriously need to look around and find the perfect dress(es), since we are getting closer to the season of weddings. During my hunt for at least two dresses, I found the amazing PartyDQ webshop with the widest selection of all. I got so inspired that I have to share with you the amazing styles and of course my favourites. :)

At first I was amazed by the beautiful, bold colors, ombre effects and even patterns many dresses have. For an event as a guest for sure we could turn some heads in these strong tones and prints. I can imagine for a 'punk', crazy, theme wedding for the bride as well one of these floral printed gowns.

After soaking in all the positive vibe of these fantastic colors, I kind of turned to greys and pastels. I loved the pastel emerald dresses in particular. The fabrics, the layers and the draping are spectacular. But we shouldn't think that choosing a grey dress would be the simplest and most worry-free solution for our 'dress dilemma'. Even the grey has millions of shades to begin with, not to speak about the style of the dress, nevertheless the form of the event we are invited to. *There are certain rules we must follow in the general etiquette and dress codes of some events.

For a bride of course it is essential, but can be a stylish touch to have flowers in our hand or hair :) that are matching in colors and shape with our dress. That guarantees a perfect harmony in our look.

Just couldn't get enough of this greyish, blueish, menthol, pastel emerald tone. I'm still searching for the right name for this unique color. Works amazingly well with fair skin and with copper red hair... and coral lipstick.... and a bronze strappy sandal.

But soon, my inner spirit took over and I was mesmerised with vintage styled dresses, multi layers and of course laces. It is truly...

I had a very difficult time keeping to my original task - to choose two dresses that I could wear for two weddings where I was invited - and not to buy the dress I want to be the bride. :) ...well time will tell... 'never say never'! ...it's always better: 'I do." :)

P.S. These dresses are sooooo amazing, that I highly recommend that even if there's no invitations found you yet, You deserve to spoil yourself with one of them. They are a definite boost for you heart and femininity.

1st day of Spring

Happy 2nd birthday to PFL with some Pink, some Flowers and lots of Love! 

I share my most favorite quote from Mr. Steve Jobs (RIP) with you and wish that you find your true passion and purpose of life!

 

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

Shinning Copper

They say... (I said) 'Pink is the new black' or 'Coral is the new pink' or 'Reds are the new Brunettes' :)... Well I can definitely say that 'Copper is the new Gold' or the new Silver for that matter. This amazing metal finish appeared, arrived and most certainly won all prizes in the competition of shiny materials. To be exact I am talking not just about copper, but also bronze or rose gold. They are more or less the same or similar and yet a bit different.

First we could see copper only in household appliances, like mugs or cutlery, then in homes: some lamps or pipings shown around the house, but now beside having our morning coffee from the coolest copper cup, we paint our nails with this amazing color. We can dress up in bronze, we can ride copper bicycle to work and our mother can bake that delicious Sunday cake with her beautiful copper KitchenAid stand mixer. 

Copper is much easier than gold or silver. It matches with everything perfectly. If you don't like shinny jewellery (like myself), trust me, you will love copper. It has a feminine glow on everything. Works well with any skintone, any haircolor and it gives an extra touch to your home if you introduce this finish. I seriously recommend to try having something... anything copper in your wardrobe or in your home.

P.S.: So far, I have a copper watch from Michael Kors, a copper/bronz nail polish and now, dying to have a Nanushka jacket from their latest collection! Give it a try! Give a bit of rest to your gold and silver accessories! Won't regret it, I promiss! XX

If you somehow don't know Katie Melua, I seriously recommend to get tunned and look for more music by her. I love most of her albums, but can't stop listening the 'Pictures'. Her style and voice is just shines through all the songs which is amazing! 

My favorite track from the album is the song 'It's all in my head',

but you can listen all the songs here.

and btw she is beautiful...

P.S.: Now, I'm just hoping she will come around, so I can listen her live. XX
