I just wanted to share with you some of our shops Favorite #flatlays and Tips on how to create a great #flatlay (in case you like to share your #ootd) on your social media.

We have been told we are #flatlay queens! were proud to take that title!

A couple of great tips to follow when laying out your outfit are as follows….

# choose your color theme and or theme and make sure it has balance…. like in Interior design you work with odd numbers!           (MOST  peeps want to work in even numbers and it really doesn’t create the balance as odd numbers do!)

# USE props that fit the look of your outfit….Plants, books, magazines, Bowls, Holiday decor etc.

#lay it out Look through your lens see is you need to adjust anything.

#Play with folding, angles, side beside and Layering over or under.

#Make sure your outfit is in frame and no shadows from above lighting

# Have fun & play with your clothes!!!

Below We have choose several different ways you can layout a perfect #flatlay take a peek, be inspired to even copy some for an outfit or a creative #flatlay. Enjoy your weekend, ox

Getting ready for New Years Eve ….Nails, Champagne & clothes

New Year’s Eve nail and Diy Glitter Champagne bottle


Sparkle and Glitz

2016 is coming to an end….  Later this week All post My 2016  resolutions and how it turned out

( It was the first year I made any Resolution’s)  As we get closer to New Years Eve I thought I would share a couple things I did to get ready for the night. First thing was I had my cute nail girl do my nails In a fun champagne toast theme… I hadn’t decided what I was wearing so we went with a mix of  things. Red on 3, 1 white with rose gold & silver  glitter over white and a black nail with a hand painted silver flute….. Now I can pick any outfit and it will work knowing my festive clothes are All in those tones….

2nd was to create a DIY project with a bottle of Champagne ….. Everything looks better with glitter 💕 You’ll need a bottle, mod podge,  a brush and glitter of your choice ( I did gold , rose gold and silver)  spray sealer .   cover bottle in mod podge roll or sprinkle fitter on and let dry… Repeat if layering color’s , let dry  then spray with sealant or cover with mod podge again let dry… Voilà a pretty Bottle for your New Years festivities 🎉🍾

3rd.  Finding a festive outfit in your closet…. Funny thing, I went into my closet and pulled all my sparkle or festive tops, any thing with beading, sequins or flash…. It all happened to be in the same blush, gold, white, cream family…. I am drawn to sparkles, beading and metallic so I had a few good choices to pick from out of my years of collecting. TIP it’s good to save classic dressy pieces.  I was only pulling tops or vest to see what I could come up with. I found some cute items that would go perfectly  with Black leather pants and heals…. Add some fun accessories and your set. Knowing  we are probably going to a house party , Where you want to look festive but not over dressed. ( we were invited to a black tie cocktail party as well and will show that outfit tomorrow)  hope you find inspiration in this post and can dig up some great treasures in your closet.

Happy Last week of 2016 ❤️D’Arcy
