Grace Kelly Exhibition

I can't even start telling you how excited I was about this last week!
Grace Kelly exhibition! 

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved Grace Kelly. She was The Princes to me.

Well, we could not have it here in Melbourne, but it wasn't hard to travel for a couple of hours to Bendigo, a provincial town in Victoria - the only place in Australia lucky enough to host this great exhibition.

This exhibition was first shown in London and now the world tour is on. Unfortunately, cameras were now allowed, but I found photos taken in London to share with you.

First meeting with her Prince. Because of an power outage at her hotel on the day, she could not dry her hair, so she improvised. Don't you think she did great? Wait, that's not all. She could not iron the frock she planned to wear either! She had to choose the least wrinkled one and it was a dress made from a pattern! Now you tell me it's not about how and by whom it's worn!

(This is why we call this bag 'kelly bag'. She had them in different colours.)
Well, I hope this will inspire you to dream and create something very stylish, my friends.
Have a fantastic week!
