The Oscars red carpet fashions never disappoint.  The break out star of the year, Lupita Nyong'o has graced all the award shows with her impeccable selection of gowns that compliment her beautiful skin tone.  Last night, she wore a Prada blue gown with a plunging neckline that again, landed her on the best dressed list.

So the question of the day is, will we see more pastel blue tones this wedding season?   Here are a few to inspire you this Monday!!

Inspire Me Monday :: New York Fashion Week :: NC Wedding Planner

This week, it's all about Valentine's Day inspiration and fabulous details!  I have been so inspired by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which runs from February 6-13 in New York City (I'll be in NYC October for Bridal Week).  The Designer that everyone has been talking about is Michael Costello, an American Couture Fashion Designer.  Michael has been designing since the age of 15, and he was a finalist on the eighth season of Project Runway. His 2014 collection debuted on Saturday night, and in honor of Valentine's Day, here are a few of his {Red} couture gowns that are absolutely Haute!

Inspire Me Monday :: Office Makeover {NC Wedding Planner}

As a Wedding Planner with an Interior Design background, it's really easy to create and design for my clients.  I can sketch out exactly what my clients envision in the first 5 minutes of speaking with them.  However, when it comes to the things that I want, it can take me a few weeks, even months to make a decision. I have been planning an office makeover for months now.  This shouldn't be this hard, right?  One of my goals for 2014 was to get this office completed.  So, here we go!

I have set a timeline to get this office completed in 4 weeks.  The space is my  formal dining room (which we never use), so this week is all about prepping and clearing out the items.

Now that you have seen what it looks like today, here are a few inspiration pictures that will help to pull off the look and feel  I'm going for!

That was just a small idea of what I am envisioning for my office makeover.  There will be pops of color, so definitely stay tuned to see how I create a mood board and pull everything together!
