Gilded Dynasty As Seen In Wedluxe

Being featured on the printed pages of Wedluxe Magazine is always a highlight of our wedding season, and get ready to drool over this Glided Dynasty Glitterati Shoot produced by Countdown Events and photographed by Hong Photography.

Refined patterns and textures of old and new; antique heirlooms, raw silks, and precious stones of the Silk Road conjure up imagery reminiscent of a modern Ming Dynasty.

Best Reds With Great Friends on www.ilikeherstyle.com {Part 2}

What an honor it was to be included in a follow up to our Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Business feature in the print issue of I Like Her Style Vancouver with Best Reds With Great Friends along side Jasmine Hoffman and Stephanie Lewis.

www.elsacorsi.com/blog

This feature was all about Red Wine and Red Lips! As Jasmine knows, we never wear a red lip however she assured us that she had the perfect red in her kit just for us! Exciting! Apparently, everyone has a perfect shade depending on their complexion and undertone.

Ours was Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in "Beso", a beautiful true red that looks great with any skin tone. Well, if it didn't have us channeling our inner Gwen Stefani! 

If you are ready to find your perfect red, you can book a makeup lesson with Jasmine Hoffman which includes a full face lesson, colour theory, take-home face chart and shopping lesson on how to choose the best brands and build your makeup kit.

Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Business on www.ilikeherstyle.com {Part 1}

Congratulations to our friends at I Like Her Style Vancouver who just launched their first print issue today! In celebration of that, we are sharing a recent editorial they showcased featuring US called Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Businesses. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

http://ilikeherstylevancouver.com/2016/12/womanspired-lookbook-fabulous-friends-creating-beautiful-businesses/ Featuring Elsa Corsi Jasmine Hoffman and SL MISS GLAM

When Jasmine Hoffman called us up to do the shoot, we agreed and thought as usual we would just drop the jewels off to the location and be on our way. However, just days before in our group text we received a message asking us to arrive with hair and makeup done. Wait, what! I was going to be in the shoot? Well, I could not think of a better way to spend the afternoon than with these dolls!

By now, if you have been following the blog and our Instagram you will recognize Jasmine Hoffman. I am often spotted at her place getting my makeup done, doing photoshoots, and going to events or up to general shenanigans with her.

The beautiful brushes that are often spotted in her hands are the lovely creation of Stephanie Lewis aka Miss Glam. Stephanie is a YouTube Queen, Beauty Mogul and every bit as sweet as her pretty pink princess online personality!

Steal Nicole Kidmans Golden Globes Jewellery Style

It seems like the Fashion Police of the inter web are split 50/50 on whether Nicole Kidman makes the Best Dressed or Worst Dressed list in this off the shoulder Alexander McQueen gown.

Nicole Kidman Jewelry Style, more at www.elsacorsi.com

We didn't think it was thaaaaat bad- of course, that is because with our one track mind we were only staring at her jewellery! Totally on point, the choker is this seasons biggest trend and her diamond one was perfect with this look. We appreciated the simple style which was a contrast to ornate gown and hair...it's all about the balance!

Nicole Kidman Jewelry Style, more at www.elsacorsi.com

We have several chokers available in our Choker Shop if you are looking to steal Nicole Kidman's Golden Globe Jewellery Style! One of our favorites is The Duchess, shown below which is several layers of swoopy Swarovski crystal ($495) or for a less dramatic look the single strand for $65. 

Both are available in our Choker Shop for purchase and we also offer custom design and sizing, just send us an email.

Steal Tracee Ellis Ross Golden Globes Jewellery Style

When you are Tracee Ellis Ross, as in daughter of Diana (yes, that Diana) then fabulous Red Carpet Style just runs through your veins! 

Of course her strapless Zuhair Murad Couture cage dress was amazing, but you know us...all eyes were on her jewellery! TEN rings! Hello! Between her jewels and her Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV comedy, no wonder her biceps are looking so fab!

Tracee Ellis Ross Golden Globes Rings, more at www.elsacorsi.com

We made a similar set earlier this year for Pamela Nahal of Maude Affair Events. Ours were delicate layers of gold plated filigree with tiny crystals encrusted into the design. Truly a one-of-a-kind piece, it now resides in Pamela's personal collection!

You can see more from this shoot photographed by Nomo Akisawa, that was featured in Real Weddings Magazine in our previous blog post.

Steal Lily Collins Golden Globes Jewelry Style

We think it's safe to say that Lily Collins made everyones Best Dressed this year, and undoubtedly with good reason! Her show-stopping Zuhair Murad Couture dress was a confectious vision of pink perfection!

But you know us, we have a one track mind and so we also had to give this look our stamp of Sparkle Patrol Approval. Her classic teardrop diamond earring style earrings paired perfectly with the ornate design of her dress and hairstyle and were not overdone.

A good quality, timeless earring is a jewellery wardrobe staple...the kind of piece that you may not wear everyday but when those special occasions call for something a little bit dressy, you know you have it!

Porcelain Blue As Seen In Wedluxe

And The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway

Cue the Frozen references because last week we did a photoshoot in a magical maze of ice and lights at Enchant VancouverEnchant is the world’s largest Christmas Light Maze, made up of over 55,000 sq. ft. of brilliantly illuminated sculptures arranged to create the perfect atmosphere for an evening adventure.

Not that you can tell from these serene photos of local personality, CEO of  AND "Choker Queen", Christie Lohr-but the weather outside was frightful! Christie was a great sport and the photos of her wearing our chokers turned out beautifully! 

Check out our Choker Shop and also our Etsy Store to shop our choker collection!
