2013 The World Becomes It’s Own “Emerald City”

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty
that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” ~ Pantone

Every year Pantone comes out with a “Color of the Year” .  This will be color you will see influencing all design from interiors, furniture, clothing to footwear, handbags and other accessories. 2013 it is Emerald. In my opinion Emerald is a perfect color, cheerful yet elegant, eye-catching and most important… flattering! It compliments every skin tone and hair color from red-heads to raven locks and porcelain to the darkest of tan and everything in between.  Now all I can think of is what little piece of Emerald buy first? Hmmm………

2013 Trend Alert: Stripes

This trend reminds me of that episode of Sex and the City when Carrie arrives in Paris.  Carrie is quoted as saying “Some outfits wait a lifetime to be taken somewhere special. “  Then she pours out the car, arriving in Paris and draped in striped Sonia Rykiel, a moment any SATC fan has ingrained in their memory.  Ahhh… Fashion, almost as potent as the sense of smell to the memory….

Happy Holidays!

Hello kittens!

We’ll be celebrating the holidays from now until the new year, and we wish you and yours a wonderfully relaxing and festive time!

Much Love,

Savannah & Panache PEI Crew

Panache Party Fashion

Hello kittens!

We had our Panache Christmas party last weekend, and wanted to share a few shots from the photobooth!

Sadly, the weather/driving was fairly atrocious, but we were able to get a fairly good showing of the ‘fam’. I’m sure there are more photo booth shots from others’ cameras – we’ll have to post some of those soon!

What to Wear: Food and Warmth Show

It is that time again.. The 8th annual Food and Warmth show at the Guild! Want to know what to wear? While I am a true believer in personal style and wearing what you want.. here is a glimpse of what I would like to wear! I LOVE mixing a funky graphic tee with some glitter, especially around the holidays. It is so important to have fun with your wardrobe, mix and match things you would never think would go together, and a concert type venue is a perfect place to do it. Experiment and have fun!

DIY Salt Dough Ornaments & Gift Tags

Colour-coordinated Christmas trees and magazine-worthy holiday home decor are great, but there’s just something about a tree that’s decorated with handmade ornaments that makes my heart sing O Tannenbaum!

A beautiful way to customize your tree is with easy-to make salt dough decorations. Here’s how!

You will need:
1 cup plain flour
1 cup salt
up to 1 cup of water
cookie cutters in different shapes
stamps, stamp pads, twigs or leaves, glitter, water colour paints, etc.
skinny straw or kabob stick (for poking a hole for the ribbon)
ribbon, twine, string, or nylon thread

Simple steps:
1. Mix the flour and salt, then slowly add water until is the consistency of dry-but-supple dough. If it gets too sticky, add more flour.

2. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to approximately 1/4″ thick.

3. Choose your cookie cutter and design stamp, and get creative!

4. Make a small hole with the straw or kabob stick near the top of the ornament for the ribbon to loop through.

5. Lay the shapes on a cookie sheet, and bake at 100 degrees C for 2-3 hours. (Check after 2 to be on the safe side!)

6. When dry and cooled, thread your choice of ribbon, twine, yarn, etc. through the hole and hang on the tree!

*TIP: Small salt dough ornaments make great gift tags!
