..And The Dress Of My Dreams! 

Now, I haven’t yet told you the sole purpose of our trip to Wellington. Several months ago, I contacted the beautiful and exceedingly talented Kelsey Genna. I’ve been a long-time admirer from afar, so was giddy with excitement when I saw a reply waiting in my inbox, signed by the lovely Kelsey Genna herself! I can get quite nervous about meeting new people, so arranging to meet with Kelsey over drinks seemed like the logical idea! I was soon at complete ease – how wonderful it is to meet someone so like-minded! Poor wee Barnaby is constantly having to listen to my fashion and blog ramblings, so it really was an incredible experience having someone actually interested!

The very best part of this meeting – Kelsey and I had planned a collaboration! I was so excited to team up on her latest project. The ever-enchanting Begonia dress is now available in custom  colours; what a treat! For me, Kelsey made the perfect petal dress in a rustic orange – the ultimate autumn piece! It was a dreamy experience, frolicking through the Wellington botanical gardens, feeling very much like one of the flowers myself! I was also lucky enough to wear a Venetian glass necklace, courtesy of Tiger Eye Beads. Even now I’m still in a complete daze that I have a Kelsey Genna dress of my very own! I have to keep peeking into my wardrobe, just to make sure it’s true!
