The dress from the moment...


"Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a women and loose enough to show you're a lady"
-Edith Head

For myself and many other New Zealand high schoolers, the holidays have now officially begun. (woop woop!)
While lounging around in my PJ's and truly embracing the fact that I don't have to go to school for 2 weeks, 
I found these photos saved on my computer.
I never got around to sharing with you all my completed ball dress that I mentioned here and here. 
Its hard to believe that my mother created this gorgeous dress from just a roll of fabric.

So on to the photos...
Of course there are some shots of the dress along with a photo of my OPI nail polish and one of my corsage ;)
