There's nothing like getting glammed up and being invited to an elegant Soiree or a stylish party. For me, it happens a lot less these days but this year I am determined to get out and about a bit more and make more of an effort... no excuses! There's nothing like putting on a pair of sky high heels, a party frock, some glossy lipstick and painting your nails to get you in he mood for a night to remember!
Here are a few images that get me inspired.

Be inspired by the film 'Marie Antoinette' - get your friends together, dress up and throw a lavish afternoon tea party. If you are into history, costume design, fashion and all things French and you haven't seen the film already then hire it on DVD one rainy afternoon. It's a refreshingly modern take on history directed by Sofia Coppola. It's a visual feast of silk, feathers, ruffles, lace, corsets, delicate pastries, extravagant cakes and sumptuous set designs. Here are few stills taken from the movie.
Following are a few images from a fashion shoot inspired by the film 'Marie Antoinette' think iced cupcakes, meringues, macaroons, fresh strawberries, layered cakes and of course, French champagne!

What a magical, ethereal, modern day take on Alice in Wonderland this is. Everything about this shoot for Teen Vogue is sweet, pretty and romantic from the model, to the cakes, to the table settings and the candy coloured shoes. Now I would love to throw an afternoon tea party that looked like this one!
Donna Hay Party Style
I am a big fan of Donna Hay. She has had a huge influence on my life and has truly inspired me to achieve greater heights as a designer. Not only have I ended up as a better cook because of her but I have been inspired by her creative styling techniques and clever ideas. We have ended up with some pretty amazing parties over the years thanks to Donna!
