Just a quick one from me today as this week is BEYOND CHAOTIC!
In fact, life, lately, is hella chaotic, as I'm sure it is for many of you too. Work is always busy at this time of year similarly to social lives, so throw in an almost-two-year old and an aching heart that wants to spend every moment of every day with her (mine) and it often feels like I am about to self combust. But, I must admit that I do LOVE my work SO SO much, I love what I do, I love being busy and I LOVE being a mama so so much, so I really can't complain! But find me KO'd when the weekend rolls around, that's for sure!
Anyway, I'm here, frantically typing away at my kitchen island to share with you THIS INCREDIBLE DRESS! It arrived on my doorstep last week and honestly, when I tell you I squealed when I opened it, well, I think that might be the understatement of the century, my husband called it more of a SHRIEK!
I was so surprised and thrilled to find this on my doorstep having seen the designer herself, Miss Olivia Rubin, rocking it over on Instagram. I fell in love at first sight and I can't quite believe that it is now mine, THANK YOU TEAM OLIVIA RUBIN!
I've been prancing around in The Mathilde dress all morning (see more here & here) and I truly feel so incredible wearing it. Aside from my wedding dress, I think it might be the most beautiful dress that has ever graced my body. In fact, how amazing would this dress be as a wedding dress? I just LOVE something a bit different.
It's crafted spectacularly and is full of so much love, interest and delicateness. I adore the tiered tulle, the smocked bodice, the elegant neckline and delicate sleeves, not to mention the beautiful muted lilac shade with gem detailing throughout. Yup, it's LOVE!
I need to be invited to something pretty epic asap so I can rock the festive dress of dreams right away, otherwise I'm afraid I'll be wearing it down Tesco.
