LAST weekend I spent two days at a big ol’ blogging conference.
Otherwise known as BritMums Live.
It was a brilliant weekend. I laughed, I cried (happy tears), I caught up with blogging pals and made some lovely new ones, and of course I learnt quite a bit too.
Many bloggers have written about the conference in detail – if want to read more, just search the hashtag #BritMumsLive on Twitter and you’ll find all manner of super posts on it! – but I want to take up a few moments of your time, if I may today, and make everyone concentrate on the DRESSES.
Because let me tell you, there were dresses in abundance at BritMums Live!
Everywhere I looked, in every direction, was a gorgeous frock to behold and so naturally, I thought it was was my job to share some of them with you today.
I don’t know whether it’s the fact that most bloggers at the conference were busy mums (and so were making the most of their child-free time and going hell for leather with their style!), but the outfit of choice for most of us was the dress.
I wore two dresses across the two days, my favourite being this lovely number from Precis Petite who kindly gifted it to me for the conference. I know, I’m a jammy ol’ devil that is true.
Hello and welcome!
It’s been a long time coming. Around two years in fact, since I came up with the idea for this blog.
But at last, after many musings, trials and tribulations, it is finally here! And yes, it feels amazing, if a little surreal.
To Dream Of Dresses is a new kind of style blog. A style blog with a difference. A style blog with soul.
As you’d expect, it is indeed a blog all about dresses.
Naturally, I want to celebrate the glamour and beauty of dresses and share with you the most dream-worthy of gowns.
But more importantly, I want to capture the emotions that dresses evoke in us. This is where the soul part comes in.
I want to share your stories, as well as my own, about the dresses that truly mean something to us. The ones we can’t bear to be parted from, the ones we can see our loved ones wearing, the ones we will never forget.
The dress is a powerful item and an incredibly emotive style piece. It is iconic – celebrating and championing our femininity more than than any other fashion item.
Long or short. Black or colourful. Embellished or plain.
Every dress – and every woman in it – has a story to tell, be that a secret, a memory or a lasting impression.
