Wooohoo! Check it out! Look at me all glam and fancy! Eeep!
My lovely photographer pal, Manny Tamayo took this snap of me at the Closing Night of the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.
Aaaaand, I’m wearing an amazing gown by one of Perth’s top fashion label, Aelkemi.
You know how they say that real style is all about the person, and confidence, not the clothes blah blah blah.
Well in this case, THIS dress was everything haha! For realz!
It was the end of fashion week. I had been going to fashion events for 5 days in a row, I had little sleep all week, I had been juggling my kids, work, wife and mummy duties. Then before this final event, I ran around making dinner and helped kids with homework, jumped in and out of the shower, brushed my hair hastily, slapped on some makeup, slipped on the dress… then omg I stopped in my tracks and felt like I was transformed!
My shoulders arched back, my posture straightened out, my tummy tucked in, my chin lifted up, my neck felt elongated, I walked taller, and stood more confidently, I suddenly felt that I could conquer the world and party all night!!
The dress was so comfortable to wear and so easy to move in. It sat and skimmed off my curves rather than hug and squeeze like a body con dress. The slight folds, the drape, the cut — ahh it was perfect.
I’m so in love with it that I might see if I can get a custom length made up, possibly a mid calf length? In dark blue?
The Aelkemi online shop has a small selection of dresses to buy, but if you want to see the good stuff, you’ll have to go instore. So if ever you’re in Claremont, do pop by to check it out!
