If you’ve ever happened to wonder what it would look like to see a girl wearing a ball gown carry twenty helium balloons whilst battling gail force winds, then this post is perfect for you..


Well, I gotta say it.. this is possibly my most favourite post on Tiny Twisst, ever. How amazing is this dress? It feels so heavy and luxurious, it’s completely covered in beads and sequin and I definitely think it could be something a Princess would wear, Virgos Lounge have done good! I love the sleeve length and the scooped back which helps give this piece an elegant feel. I popped on a faux-fur stole/scarf as well which I think just gives it an extra dash of ‘fabulous’. Keeping everything else pretty simple, because ithis dress doesn’t need much help, does it? Some simple strappy heels from Dorothy Perkins.. oh, and some balloons, because you know.. what else!?

I’ve been telling you guys for a while now that I want to create something different over here in TT Towers. I want my content to be creative and the photos to be separate works of art (not giving myself too much pressure there, then, ha!) I can safely say that I have been SO excited to post these photos, we worked super hard on them and froze our little feet off (well I did, mainly) I definitely thought I might sink into the sand on multiple occasions and my shoes still need a mighty good clean, but it was well worth it. I love how it still excites me when I pop a new post up even after all these years, so I really hope you guys enjoy reading them!

Lastly, I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Thank you for your support, for reading and of course for all your comments and messages. 2015 brought me many exciting opportunities as well as 60,000 subscribers (say whaaaaat!?) and I’m just thrilled that this is what I do every day of my life. So here’s to 2015 being amazing and hopefully to 2016 being even better!

    I loved your blog before, when your photographs were set in your backyard. But now, every post is a work of art. This blog proves that you can always go further: everything is perfect in every photo of every post. I loved the way the landscape reflects in the balloons, the contrast between your dress and the landscape, everything. And I think the same about the other posts. Congratulations!

      This comment has made my evening, thank you SO much. It’s a different style to the backyard days, which I was unsure if my readers would like – but it seems like its been worth the change. So thank you, so much! Happy new year to you! xxx

    Belle et magnétique… Congratulations from Paris Laura, I have been following your blog for over two years and am impressed with its evolution. I have always liked it because unlike other bloggers, you are able to style affordable clothes with inspiration, but I like it even more now that you are challenging yourself to play with art and pushing yourself.
    Also, your bf is very talented!
    I wish you the very best for 2016 and hope you and your lovely family had a joyful and warm Christmas.
