Yes, this is me with the girls all dressed up and absolutely nowhere to go. And it was fun! My friends Nadia Fairfax and Montarna Pitt have started a fashion initiative #HauteCOUCHture and #GetUpandGlamUp to inject a little dose of fashion, and some lightheartedness into our days. And you know what? It was actually such a lovely feeling to be able to put on a great dress and have something to take my mind off everything that’s been going on. Sophia and Grace had a ball too as they love anything that involves playing dress ups.
I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear this beautiful gown by Needle & Thread, and also for the girls to wear their dresses from the kids’ collection. I’m such a huge fan of this British brand, their aesthetic is all about feminine silhouettes with beautiful, intricate detailing and each piece is such a showstopper. Their kids’ range is equally as gorgeous, and the features just as pretty. I always enjoy a little mini me dressing with the girls, and it’s always great when a label I love also does a range for children.
Even if we’re all at home for awhile, this was a great exercise in reminding me to embrace all the things that I enjoy and bring happiness into my days. While I may not have had anywhere to go, the act of just putting on a beautiful dress was enough.
