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.
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.
The beauty of the dress is what attracts us but it is how they make us feel, that makes them so special to us.
Every woman I have ever met, has at least one story to share about a dress she has loved.
Perhaps it’s a dress that she played in as a little girl. Or the frock she wore when she fell in love. Quite possibly it’s the dress she wore on her wedding day however it could also be the one that made her feel fearless, at a time when her nerve was tested.
Because this is what dresses do. This is the power they have.
They make us feel different. They make us feel beautiful. They make us feel special.
So yes, the new blog of mine will of course showcase beautiful dresses and provide you with style inspiration, but trust me, it’s going to be so much more than that.
Are you ready ‘To Dream Of Dresses’?
Super. Come on in.
I promise you a world of glamour, inspiration and emotion awaits.
And I hope, truly hope, that you will love this blog as much as I’m going to love bringing it to you.
From one dress lover to another, let’s get this dreaming started shall we?!
Starting this blog would just not have been possible without the support, love and encouragement of so many fabulous and supportive people! So a big heartfelt thank you to:
Steph from Black Bee Creative for creating the super logo and getting my vision so perfectly.

And finally my daughter Elsie for inspiring me to do more, aim higher, be better.
Thank you all! It’s finally here! (Thank goodness for that.)
