Class of 2016! Trend Guide

Late is better than never! 
Here is the class of 2016 top 5 trends guide!
There are heaps of new trends on the horizon this year however these are my top 5 as they slot into my current wardrobe. The final trend is rose quartz and serenity (worn together or seperately). These colours were announced back in December by Pantone as their colours of 2016. Head over to their website to see their choice of colours to pair both shades with.  
I'll hopefully be incorperating these trends into future outfit posts. Each of these trends are super easy to wear and can be carried right through the seasons.
Enjoy :)

I'm Back!

I'm back! It's been a whole 2 months since my last post - which is pretty shameful! I have now graduated from university and am working full time. Part of the reason I haven't been posting much is because I have been adjusting to full time working life. Other than that, I've just been caught up in life - Christmas, New Years, seeing friends who are on break from uni, etc. etc.
Anyway, now I'm settled again, I decided to starting blogging more. New posts will be posted from this week onwards :)

See you soon!

Sorry again for the lack of posting! I can't wait until my exams are over as I'll be able to focus more on this blog.

But until then, I've put together a collection of images that are inspiring me right now.

Dreaming of a tropical holiday

Sorry I've been MIA lately! I'm currently in my last 3 weeks of uni and have been swamped assignments and exam prep :( However, as of December 1st I'm free and can focus on my blog again!
I've been dreaming of getting away from this work load and relaxing on a tropical island, so I put together a combo of my favourite relaxed summer outfits and inspiring tropical photography.

UPDATE: Visions of Style

My blog has had a change of name! I decided to change "Ghost White" to something I felt was more appropriate. Since my blog is still quite new, and I only have 30 something followers, I'm hoping it will be an easy adjustment to make. 

I have updated my bloglovin (still waiting for a full link change from the moderators) and instagram to "Visions of Style".

The logo:
This "logo" I actually designed last year when I was a fashion design student. It was for my "brand" (fictional, I don't have a brand) which I name Elsie. Elsie came from LC, which are my initials. While I didn't like the brand name, I really loved the logo that I designed and created using Adobe Illustrator. I decided to use it for something worthwhile, my blog! 


On "Ghost White" I had a post schedule of 3 times a week: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. However, sadly for the next 6 weeks, I will only be able to post about twice per week as I have a huge final exam plus 2 assignments within that time. 
As of December 1st I will finally no longer be a student (that is, if I pass everything). 
Once my exams etc are over with, I will resume posting 3 days per week.

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Get the Look: The Countess

 On Wednesday, American Horror Story Hotel premiered. This is the fifth season of this show and I have followed it closely since it was first released. Ryan Murphy is an absolute genius and each season of AHS inspires me. This show isn't just about the horror, its made to absolute visual perfection. Personally, the seasons that have inspired me the most were season 1, Murder House and season 3, Coven. Coven was like a fashion editorial playing out before my eyes and their style really influenced my own. Although it's only been one episode, I feel like season 5 is going to inspire me greatly as well. 

At first, I was unsure about Lady Gaga being cast into Hotel. However, after seeing the first episode, she is an amazing actress and fits right in with the rest of the cast.

I have been inspired ever since watching the first episode, more in terms of creating art, as opposed to fashion. However, I decided to create a look based on The Countess because her style is amazing. 

Dress from Elise Ryan. Necklace from Boohoo. Shoes from MayKool. Clutch from Whistles. Lipstick is Prince Noir by Mac Cosmetics. Blood gel packs by Graftobian.

The Countless also wears killer crystal gloves....killer being the operative word. These gloves were actually created by Shaun Leane. This glove can actually be purchased, if you are willing to pay the price. The glove is made up of over a thousand grams of gold and has 5000 white diamonds set into it.
