A day at the races

Susan and I were awake at the crack of dawn this morning. I greeted her in the studio where we both sipped on yummy lattes and discussed the look she wanted to have for the Wellington cup at Trentham races today.  Susan is one of my super favorite clients who turns up time and time again to be made up for all manner of events, the thing that makes working with her such a joy, is that every single event Susan attends, she has a complete new look for me to tackle. Today we went for a vintage look with a modern twist. bubbling finger waves, an interesting side bun and a quirky hot pink fascinator.  We went for the Rihana hot pink lip, doe inky eyes, long corner single lashes and pale shimmery pink shadow with a plum contour.  She wore Bobbi brown's gorgeous rose Shimmer brick on her cheeks and matched the look up with vintage lace gloves, a hot pink dress, hot pink shoes and clutch.

Susan looked so hot to trot that when a film producer came to our house this morning, he caught a glimpse of the sassy lass and left his number for her. (he he)  I think maybe I need to start up a match making business.  Think Susan may have thought he was a bit of all right too :)

Susan entered in the Stella fashion award and became a finalist. We think she's a winner!

One of this weeks gorgeous brides.

Here are some pics of one of our gorgeous brides today. Penny had a fantastic hair style that was a real breakfast with Tiffany look, she had a french roll at the back and then intricate detail through top the side.  Penny hired one of our stunning vintage brooches to go with her do and wore a beautiful dress from Brides on Thorndon.  Penny's photographer Jenny Siaosi,  was the photographer of choice for the day and the reception and place of getting ready was at the lovely Wellesly boutique  hotel in Wellington.
