Hello and welcome to the new That Dress Is Mine’s New Website!
Ok. First things first.
My name is Cindy.
Anyone who has seen this blog from the beginning can see that it has change quite a lot. I have now moved towards modern feel and is more a reflection of who I am as a person. But if you look closer you’ll find there are some vintage and old school touches throughout! I am really excited about it all to be honest. The embers have been burning for a while and i feel the fire has finally been lit…
I launched this site over a year ago as just a blog trying to motivate myself into setting up my dress collection but it’s also my way of documenting my progress, highs, lows, ups and downs of starting an new (or re-launching rather!) a new business venture. This blog will also serve as a personal and professional journey for me and a great way for you to get to know who I am and what inspires me and makes me ‘tick!’
To be honest, I always thought I would be a writer. I was told so many times that I could become one but my love of creating something from nothing as a beautiful and wearable item of clothing/dress tips the balance here. I guess now in a way, I finally get the chance to do both at the same time…
It is going to take me a little time to get things up and running, so please bear with me. I am a mother of two beautiful daughters, I also run another business with my very patient and loving husband and I decided that this year was the time to finally get up and do something for myself. I also wanted to feel as if I have contributed something to the world, no matter how small it was. I want my daughters to see me as an inspiration and to know first hand what hard work, perseverance and sheer determination can do for you as a person and contribute to society. Plus it’s fantastic for your self asteem!
Over the coming weeks and months, I will fill in the gaps as to who I am. I will also explain what my brand is all about. But to begin, I have a very passionate love of vintage dresses. There is something about the way they are made and constructed that appeals to my femininity with such force that I find certain ones the epitome of what a real woman should look like no matter who and what size you are. I wish to create some of this feminine magic and mix it with a touch of modern styling. I hope you like what you see…
I am also planning to have a page of some sort where I post a picture or two about what dresses etc has inspired me. There are too many to count to be honest but this will be a way of letting you all know where my inspiration comes from. Lastly, the construction of the TDIM shop is well under way and you’ll be able to purchase creations straight from this site! I can’t wait!
Please keep in touch of course!
Until next my next blog entry,
