A day of Frock Stars..........









Hi Sweet-peas.....

From an exhausted little squirrel......
Oh my gosh yesterday was such a wonderful experience.......
I was just blown away by the truly amazing entries from ALL the lovely poppets who had put so much time, creativity, and love into transforming some sad little frocks into pure beauty.
It was so hard to select the winners in each of the categories, but I had to be strong and look at all the aspects of each creation.
Spending all day with the beautiful Lu who is the fabulous organizer and creator be hide 'Frock Stars' was inspiring and magical.....she really is a amazing lady.
Pop over to the Frock Stars FB page and have a look at all the entries and winners.
Lu and I are holding the overall winner
Rashaedah from Christchurch.
When you see the original frock and the final result that is just so pretty and beautifully constructed......it just had to be the STAR 'Frock Star'.
Congratulations sweet.
Warren and I want to thank Lu and the Frock star team for asking us to be part of such a fabulous event, BP in Fairlie for helping the squirrels to get there and the lovely Kathleen and John at Aorangi Motels for hosting us on Saturday night.

Am I entering next year......you can bet your cotton socks I will be.


Love V

  4. Wow, you're a Judge! Impressive stuff, but only fitting. I would have found it really hard to find a favourite, it looks like people went to a lot of trouble. You look dazzling in your lovely floral dress and cute fringe! xxx

  6. Oh my how difficult I bet it was choosing just one winner when everyone worked so hard. I must say I'd wear that green dress in a ny minute, I love how it still looks vintage but with a modern twist! I'll have a look at the fb page I wanna see the befores.
