Months and months ago now, I was interviewed by the lovely Jaclyn for the online manifestation of her shop, Audrey Grace Boutique. I’m sure you’ll all heard about Audrey Grace by now – Jaclyn has teamed up with some of my favourite bloggers, designers, photographers and illustrators to create what can only be described as a dream world. Unfortunately, the majority of us won’t be able to visit the physical store, currently located in Jackson, Mississippi, but it is popping up in New York next week too for those of you living in the Big Apple. ; )
For those of us not lucky enough to finger through the rails full of Vivetta, TBA, Alexandra Grecco, Dear Creatures and more..we’ll live vicariously through her collaborations, one of which I was lucky enough to be a part of!
Jaclyn sent me this beautiful TBA dress to style and photograph. I was initially worried about it’s sleevelessness, given both the cold and my dislike for showing my arms (irrational, I know!), but that was soon remedied by my BOTM (blouse of the moment..of course). It’s charming print is what makes it so special – adorned with ballerinas and swans. It brought me back to my ballet days, which I unfortunately quit after grade 6, but remember it with fondness. I would turn up with a mess of black eyeliner and a band t-shirt over my leotard , not the typical ballerina, I know. When giving the old pointe shoes a try taking these pictures I realised what hard work it was and how out of shape I’ve become..there is still a bit of grace left in me though, I’d like to think!
Giveaway: $100 voucher to spend at Audrey Grace
Even if you can’t pop by for a visit, Jaclyn wanted to offer one lucky commenter the chance to put $100 towards their favourite dreamy dress – all you have to do is let me know your favourite Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly film in your comment. The winner will be contacted by Jaclyn, who will let you know which of your favourite brands she’s currently got in stock, and send you out your favourite piece. Easy peasy! The giveaway is open internationally and I’ll announce the winner on Saturday 17th. Good luck! x
