The GJ dress
Let me share with you the history behind the GJ dress featured in today’s post:
Since I was a little girl, I was always fascinated with the idea of designing my own clothes.
I remember cutting sheets and cloths until my mother had to take them away from me. You see, I always dreamt of designs in my mind that I just couldn’t find in any store.
So, when I decided to start my blog, I thought that maybe…just maybe…I could show little-by-little my own fashion designs, but of course, I am not a professional designer, I’m just someone with a huge imagination, right?
Then, one day while having tea after tennis, I was discussing the Stunning Chic blog with a new friend. We shared many of the same childhood fashion fantasy stories. She was telling me when she was a young girl, she always wanted to be in style and have beautiful clothes as well. But she decided to go to college and become a professional Fashion Designer. WOW! I could not believe it! I told her how much I would love to make a dress, but I just did not know how to execute the idea.
So another day (while talking about fashion, of course) I showed her some pictures and explained how I would love to have a dress that looked like this. Amazingly, from those ideas, and our discussions, she created this fabulous dress!
My wonderful friend’s name is Jaimi Peterson Runyan, and I feel like she and I make a perfect team together. Both of us love fashion as a way to express to the world who we really are!
We decided that this dress needed to be light pink and black with gold buttons, the three colors represent my personality, and this blog, the best!
I’m so proud to share with all of you our very first dress. The GJ dress!
Why “GJ“? “G” for Gemma, “J” for Jaimi
Be creative on your own, and stay Fabulous!
