a fuchsia dress for the ball
Saturday night was a rare night out. I was invited to attend a ball, a Rainbow Ball which was a fundraising event for the Stillbirth Foundation of Australia and Heartfelt.
The story of Heartfelt really touched me, learning that this photography service is available to families at such an emotional time to capture those precious moments together.
I made a dress for the occasion. the fabric is a new purchase, but I styled it with vintage, op-shopped accessories. a sparkly necklace and earrings and a glow mesh purse. the earrings were originally screw-backed but with the advice of the lovely Christina I was able to convert them to post backs.
the evening was lovely. I got to meet some beautiful ladies and the night raised several thousand dollars for such important organisations.
