This is a true story.
I’ve been test driving HYPEED to see if it’s worth the hype (um, not really), and while perusing there, I spotted the achingly beautiful Julia of Porcelain Complexion.
Well. Y’all know I love my pale sisters. And I am a redhead waiting to happen, so I didn’t even have to move past Julia’s gorgeous head to have a major girl crush. Aside from being super sweet, and having mad style (and some killer rings), Julia owns a pre-loved (love that) clothing boutique in New Zealand. Over the last few weeks, we’ve traded comments on our blogs, and I’ve gotten to know her a bit.
Not long ago, Julia did a post called Line of the Times, in which she wore a totally adorable black and white striped dress with a scarf she knitted herself. I commented that I was crazy about the dress, and then to my surprise, Julia graciously offered to fetch one for me in NZ. I accepted. Last week my little care package arrived, and Julia was not only spot-on on the sizing, she enclosed the sweetest card and wrapped it all up in a pink bow for me. Thank you, my lovely Julia! Mwah!
So here we are in different continents, countries, hemispheres, and seasons. A dress twinned through space, time, and blogs. Don’t you just love it?!
I adore this dress because it makes me think of Julia and how kind she was to go through such effort to send it to me. And it’s already my lucky dress! You’ll have to come back for part two of this tale tomorrow and find out why.
