It was a link to The Bloggess's website.
I have heard about The Bloggess but hadn't looked at her blog before.
I loved what I saw so much that I'm finally following.
I don't really know why I resisted for so long.
Anyway, this is what I saw...The Traveling Red Dress, please click and check it out.
It's not just the dress that is amazing but the concept...brilliant!!
So it got me thinking, as most things do, about how much I love dresses.
And how nothing makes me feel as amazing as being in an amazing dress.
My wedding dress is the most amazing dress I've ever worn.
I also felt pretty darn spesh in my deb dress...oh come on...it was the 80s!!
And I adored my flowergirl dress...stop it...it was the 70s!
(I still can't believe they gave me that old lady hairdo...I was 4!!)
I've never owned a strapless dress, but I must confess I have tried one on, a wedding dress, when I wasn't even getting married! I was with a friend who was, she talked me into it. And I loved it. It was a Wendy Makin design, black velvet bodice, ivory silk full skirt, it was divine.
And as much as I would love to wear the Traveling Red Dress (but only if it was pink, I don't have the confidence for red) just for fun, I don't know if I could. I'd be too self conscious...but I can dream about it.
In my dreams, if I could wear an amazing dress just for fun I might go for something like this...
Looking at dresses like these makes me want to get creative again.
I'm not a writer but those of you how are, you know that feeling you have when there's something in your head that you need to get out? I get that feeling with designing dresses. I'm not great at it, I haven't studied it, but I absolutely love it. It's my passion. I have over 100 drawings in my folio. I haven't done any for ages. This might just get me drawing again.
I told you I'm not great, and I'm a little nervous about showing my amateurish drawing, but here's one of my favourites...
Yes, they all have names. It's as much fun as naming babies!
