The most amazing dress ever! I felt so beautiful in this gown for my elopement. It's pretty form fitting, so be prepared to go commando. Kelly was fantastic, so prompt in responding to questions and is an amazing seamstress. Only issue was shipping and arrived later than expected due to issues with the post office, but Kelly was on top of it and eased my stress and switched to FedEx so it would arrive on time. I high recommend this gown, or anything from Kelly!

Just AMAZING! Kelly made this for me in double layered white with two modifications that I requested (closed back and thigh split). Let me tell you, this was THE DRESS! I wore it for my wedding, and the pictures are just breathtaking. I felt like a Hollywood starlet. Also, Kelly was super communicative and any message I sent was returned within minutes (literally). I will say that in white, even double-layered, this dress/material is very unforgiving. I couldn't wear anything (at all) under it. Even seamless support garments showed. Still, the final outcome was PERFECT! If I could leave 100 stars, I would. Kelly is a true professional and an artist. I'm so glad I trusted her with my dress <3

Hi!! Kelly, here. Just wanted to tell you a bit about myself and my designs. My shop originally started from me wanting a dress for an event and I couldn't find anything I loved. I was looking for something classic, but with a little edge. I started playing around with fabric, which resulted in the backless dress - my personal favorite. The other designs came to life in the following months and my little design family had been created.

My feather shoes have a birth story of their own. I've always had so much inspiration from Alexander McQueen (the man, himself). I've studied fashion design at two separate schools and am one of the annoying people who sit at the computer during fashion week anxiously waiting images from the runways. McQueen was my favorite. He married design with art in a pseudo-rebellious way. He was unlike any other designer because crossed the two concepts effortlessly, so I was a bit devastated after his passing. The feather pumps were actually a tribute to the last collection he designed and they are a symbol of his inspiration to me.

All things aside, I just want thank you for visiting my shop. Your support means the world to me. Feel free to send a message, ask a question or just say hi. You're always welcome.
