Why invites should be important

July 24, 2017



Has it ever crossed your mind that invites and greeting cards are important. I have always kept all my greeting cards since the age of 10. I love the sentiment towards them and it make me appreciate life because that special someone is taking out time to select a card that reminds them of you!


As we can see cards and invitations have evolved over time, technology has a advanced and you can now make cards and invitations more personal and add your own touch to it. I am always thinking of new ways to customise invitations and cards, so I came across this site called Paperless Post and I was intrigued with what I saw. It's a great site if your thinking of planning an event, it's simple, quick and easy. you have so many options and styles to choose from the variety is limitless.


If I was going to plan an event I would definitely use this site as you can personalise invites and send them directly to their email, how good is that! Plus everything is online, so you don't have to worry about it getting lost in the post. Paperless Post haven't left those people if the dark who love to open a fresh colourful invite on quality paper behind, when you design a online copy you can make it into a paper copy. They even let you customise the envelope, which I have never seen before and you get to choose the lining of the envelope, how cool is that.


I feel like living in the blogging world you don't even need to be planning a big event with lots of people, you could be planning an major event to hit your channel or blog, like a new series and what better way to announce it then making your own personalised invite you can share with the world.


Wouldn't you love seeing your favourite Youtuber or Blogger announce big news with a personalised invitation or card, I know I would!


Here is some examples of how you can take your invites to the next level!

Designers that stood out: Giambattista Valli & Guo Pei

July 18, 2017



This is the last post of Haute Couture Week, I hope you enjoyed the previous posts I have written. Now this post is for two designers who stood out and caught my eye as I was following Couture week. These two designers are Giambattista Valli and Guo Pei, they are very different designers and I really like what they showcased on the runway.


Who's ready, I am! Let's Start with Giambattista Valli.


This collection is very floral with soft flowing fabrics. It's all about the volume, make it big and go home is a under statement when you look at Giambattista Valli's couture! I love the way he has used the fabric, it has been manipulated in a way that showcases volume.  The ruffles and layering really pulls the whole collection together.


I think if I could sum this collection up in a few words, I would say simple yet effective. He makes the dress design so simple but its not and that is what really brings this collection together.


Down below I have selected my favourite pieces from the collection.





I bet you thought this was the end but no! Yes we have one more designer to talk about, let's welcome Guo Pei to the blog. This is her first time on FashtasticFlare 😊


Now this is a collection that really stands out for the boldness and the statement hitting the runway. I think a woman who chooses to use metallic throughout the collection, she is definitely risking everything. I guess that is what I really like, but it does not surprise me that she loves the attention, as she made the Met Gala dress that Rihanna broke the internet over.


I love the colours used in this collection, I feel the ombre effect in the metallic is somewhat mermaid like. I also love how the metallic colours reflect under the light giving all kinds of tones and shimmer. There is so many styles to choose from, from strapless to off the shoulder, midis to maxi's with a twist.


She even included soft princess like dresses, so there is definitely a major contrast in this collection, it's like there is something for everyone. One thing to note is there has been a lot of hard work gone into this particular collection which has paid off, in my personal opinion. Guo Pei you should definitely take a bow and be proud of what has been produced!






Thank you for reading this post, I hope you enjoyed Haute Couture Week!


All good things must come to end, until next time! 😜

Zuhair Murad Haute Couture 2017

July 15, 2017



I am back with another post all about Haute Couture fashion. This time I am back with another favourite. Zuhair Murad has a particular style that he renovates every haute couture week but this couture is more specific. Shall I go on to explain what I mean by this, it's all in the detail.


The embroidery really tells you a story, I think in this modern day as fashion fanatics embroidery is really overlooked. Embroidery is a very intricate skill, that requires a lot of hard work. It's like an art piece, once you start working on it, you don't know where it will take you and you don't see the big picture. Then when the end is near it all comes together. That's how I perceive Zuhair Murad couture, the embroidery is a journey that makes you appreciate the little glimmers of sparkle you see in the light.


The thing I most admire about Zuhair Murad is his creativity in the detail of every garment he designs. I feel it really speaks to you, this collection reflects a royal theme, a sense of honour when wearing garments in this style. It's like you are attending a event of high stature when wearing a Zuhair Murad gown.


He has selected cold colours for this Haute Couture week, even though there are blues, purples and silvers. The beige looks toned down and definitely something you could wear in an icy mountain somewhere. This collection is given me winter vibes with a hint of mythical vibes. Whether your the snow queen or some princess in Game of Thrones, one thing you can guarantee you will appear in great grace and be admired by many!


Down below, I have selected my favourite dresses from this collection!




Thank you for reading my post, I hope you enjoyed!

Elie Saab: A Tale of Fallen Kings

July 14, 2017




When Haute Couture week hits the media, you can be sure to see a flow of posts hitting my blog! There is something about Haute Couture that I really love! I think it's where I get to see the greatest designs and work from my favourite designers.


On what better way to kick the Haute Couture posts with my favourite design, Elie Saab! This man never seems to disappoint, collection after collection and he hits the mark every time!


Let's take a moment to understand the name of the collection: A Tale of Fallen Kings. My interpretation of what he is trying to portray through the collection, is a sense of rebellion. Women feel empowered and feel like they can conquer anything. The cuts and designs show how women are fearless like warriors. On the other hand there are pieces that show great elegance, beauty and free spirit which really projects a tale that is being told!


This collection focuses on forest like colours, i.e blues, greens and black. Those colours really bring out the designs and the cuts, embroidery and embellishment really pulls the whole collection together. I like how there is something for everyone and there are so many styles to chose from.


Each dress represents styles from different eras, like what different princesses would have worn in different decades. I see velvet is a fabric that has come back, sheer is still standing strong from last season. Lace is creeping in here and there!


Whether it is a fashion week or a Haute Couture collection, for me, he is the designer to look out for. His collections never disappoint and I wonder what will he do next.


Down below, I have selected my favourite dresses that I have loved form this collection!





Thank you for reading my post, I hope you enjoyed it!
