Lady in Red

November 30, 2015

I was the very lucky winner of this incredible dress from the N3 collective, which was originally custom made for the absolutely stunning Miss Universe Indonesia – Whulandary Herman. Although I didn’t have anywhere in mind to wear this dress the minute I saw it I fell in love with it’s rich masala colour and high neckline and I knew I had to be #inittowinit!

I don’t own anything quite so striking or have any upcoming occasions to wear it to – if anyone has any recommendations please let me know, so I decided to pack it along on my trip down south to Margaret River with Lei Lei from Lei Lady Lei as I knew the surroundings of where we were staying would make the most spectacular backdrop for this dress. And so as the sun was setting we ventured around the bush and forest filled property at The Karridale Cottages to take these photos.

A special thank you to the N3 Collective for organising this competition, this is the best thing I have ever won and I can’t wait to wear it to a proper event – even though I felt fabulous eating cheese and drinking champagne in a cottage in such a stunning dress! Xx Nadine
