ONE DRESS | TWO BODIES


 This is moi and my best friend Jo wearing the same dress. The Dreamer Dress in Ice Blue. When taking these photo's we laughed about the very different sizes and shapes of our bodies - I do believe the words 'fatty and skinny' slipped from my mouth...




 This is moi and my best friend Jo wearing the same dress. The Dreamer Dress in Ice Blue. When taking these photo's we laughed about the very different sizes and shapes of our bodies - I do believe the words 'fatty and skinny' slipped from my mouth. Both of us have grown and birthed 3 babies!! We met as weedy 12 years old in year 7 and have loyally travelled the last 20 years together as friends. And here we are now, 32 years old and still playing dress ups.

Back in the day, when Jo and I were in school, we used to share clothes all the time. You know, for double dates and stuff. Later on, when we were both High School Teachers we would swap wardrobes just to freshen things up.... then we had babies and I got fatter while Jo got skinnier! WHAT ARE THE CHANCES??

Anyways, this is one piece we can still call share-wear.

I'm styling mine with animal print booties while Jo keeps in classic in crisp black.

I'll be loving this dress come Spring but right now, I'm layering it with a black jacket and knee high boots for warmth.

  3. Too funny! Why is it that some people get skinnier and others can never seem to shift said baby weight? Either way the dress is gorgeous on you both!

  4. You are lovely ladies and the truth is that you both made the dress beautiful! I have a favourite quote of Coco Chanel and I will share with you:
    Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress.
    Have a great day, darling!
