A Closer Look: Antoinette Dress

A Closer Look: Antoinette Dress

This season is our third time making the Antoinette Dress!
It became a. bestseller in it's first season and you have been loving it ever since. This year, we made it in two colors and in a new fabric. 

The first color is a soft blue. I fell in love with this color when I saw it because it reminded me of forget-me-nots. These sweet little flowers grow all over my parent's property in the spring and I would always pick them with my mum and make little bouquets. 
The second color is this gorgeous dessert orange....


Coming Soon: Upcycled Collection

Coming Soon: Upcycled Collection

A little while ago I mentioned an idea about making an upcycled collection for Lights of All. I was thinking of getting some T-shirts from local second hand stores to give new life. I was also wondering about ways I could repurpose styles from the regular collections that were not selling. 

Well I did it! So I bought some nice fitting tops at a second hand store and I hand dyed or hand tie-dye bleached (I found mostly black t-shirts so I had to bleach dye those). I'm so happy with the result and I think it's such...


A Closer Look: Field Dress

A Closer Look: Field Dress

The Field Dress has gone through the longest journey of any SS20 style!

It started off as a prototype as a Maxi Dress, however the fabric I used for the prototype was too heavy and literally pulled the dress down so it was not possible to use for the real dress.

I also realized that the Maxi length was not ideal for everyone since we are all different heights, and because the dress has a gathered detail at the hem, it would not be easy to shorten and lengthen if needed. So I shortened the style and found...

As someone who has been working from home for 4 years, I've come to find some things to keep my productivity high and my loneliness low.

1- GET YOUR DAY STARTED

If you are working from home, chances are you can do your work on your laptop, so it can be tempting to stay in bed. Don't. For two reasons; productivity and sanity. 

If you are too comfortable you won't get as much work done and it won't be as high in quality. And this doesn't happen immediately; the first day you might do fine...


A Closer Look: Céleste Dress

A Closer Look: Céleste Dress

This season we are introducing the cousin of the Antoinette Dress; The Céleste Dress. At first glance it looks a lot like the Antoinette, that's because it's largely inspired by it.. with a key difference. The Céleste Dress can be reversed to be worn with the round neck in front or in back. 
Here's why:
Last summer my mum was trying on the Antoinette Dress, which she loved the photos of. But when she tried it on she didn't like how the V-wrap looked in front, and she tried it on backwards. Which looked obviously backwards and she asked me,...
