Kandi for your Hed








If you are thinking, "I have seen this fabric before", you guessed right.. this dress used to be this dress. I was happy with what I first came up with, but just thought that it wasn't really something I could party in. Enter my first tiered ruffles mini dress project. I am quite happy with it, and it was exhilarating to be able to answer everyone's "I LOVE your dress!!" with "Thanks, I made it." Nothing beats that.

So the Hed Kandi team was on the island to yet again lead us loyal party animals into the sunrise, arms up in the air, toes buried in sand and hearts dancing to the beat. ♥

After a "hard" day teaching poi to tourists, fire dancing and snagging ridiculous prizes from an event, I am ready to put on another party dress and to dance my night away. The boyf is already throwing in the towel and surrendering to permanent hangoverdom, but I am just getting started.....
