Isn’t true that when you stop, look and observe, you find so much more than you thought you would? For as they say, beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places and big things come in small packages.
Not only that, but these often a time when the smallest of details bring a whole piece together and create much more than what you expected. A stroke of a brush, the perfect phrase, maybe even that ideal emoji that seems to just sum up all those emotions that can’t seem to be expressed in 50 words or less.
Perhaps that’s what’s just so magical about the jewellery that Emily for Emclectic collection creates. Delicate, refined, precise. Nothing left to chance. Everything colour, piece and shape chosen with clarity and joy. And the effect that they have? As we described. Precision, completion, perfection.
We had a pleasure collaboration with the lovely Emily and Livia to bring this shoot to life. All hand made and carefully created by Emily, her latest ranges have hues of pastel pink and sage green and are just waiting to add that little something to your autumn wardrobe.
What’s that one thing that every girl knows and dreams of? It’s common knowledge that every young lady grows up wishfully thinking and dreaming of their ‘big day’. For some the big day may be when they get their first job, graduate from uni, move out of home. However, we would be kidding ourselves if we didn’t define the big day as the “wedding day”.
We’ve personally love love love weddings. We love the different aspects of it, the beautiful flowers, the amazing cakes, the touching photographs, the thought out table decor. We’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings, make invites, do videography, and it never gets old! What we love the most is that weddings are ultimately a celebration of two people joining in love, life and in holy matrimony. That on that day, it is the opportunity for a couple to get creative in sharing their story and having the best day celebrating their love with their closest and most cherished!
From what we’ve seen, if can be daunting approaching the task of creating that perfect day. From the decor to the clothing, there’s not one detail that can be missed. If there’s one thing that we have learnt from the weddings that we’ve been a part of, is that no one wants to have that cookie cutter wedding where the results are formulatic and has no personal touch. That’s where the Esty Bride Trunk show comes in!
Simply put, there was a variety of gorgeous sellers who were so kind, generous and sweet. They proudly shared their creations and it was so great being able to chat to people who loved weddings and creativity just as much as we do! Did we mention they had an Instagram wreath and the wonderful Mint and Melon Boutique taught us how to make our own floral crowns? Best event ever? Yes!
We love our friends at Etsy and we love what they do! Make sure that when you’re planning your big day, don’t hesitate to stop over at Etsy.com for you are sure to find something there that you will love. And in the process, you’ll be supporting local makers who want nothing more than to make your big day the best that it could possibly be. Also! Here are our 3 golden rules for wedding prep: 1) Be organised 2) Express your collective awesomeness 3) Have fun!
Two weeks ago now, our amazing friend Rach won tickets to attend a Frankie sponsored event Esty Merchandising Workshop which was part of the LMFF 2013 program. She unfortunately wasn’t able to attend (because she was going to see Passenger play a gig!) so she offered the tickets to us!
Now we actually do not have an Esty profile ourselves, but we recognise it as an amazing community and space for creativity and innovation. We took some notes from the event and we’re going to share them with you here! So if you have an etsy profile, this is totally relevant to you, but even if you don’t, they really provided us with great merchandising and photography tips to improve your brand image.
Thanks again Etsy and thank you Rachie!
It was a really interesting night that we throughly enjoyed! Looking forward to Etsy events in the future!
