Rediscovery of My Muchness

I first came acquainted with Uncommon Nonsense via amazing blogger friend Kizzy, lovely lady behind blog The Dainty Dolls House. Sshe had joined a giveaway on instagram that seemed utterly adorable, and so did the shop organizing it. Eventually I was the lucky girl who's name was chosen to win one of Uncommon Nonsense's designs: adorable Rabbit tee!  I'll show you pictures of me wearing & styling it below, and also all the other lovely gifts I received in the package - which were complete surprises to me!

I have to mention how unbelievable feeling I experienced when I received this package; how is it that someone you've never met can pick up presents that completely represent you and your style, your loves and favorite animal motifs! Just watch the pictures and you'll know what I mean. That is if you know me .. Well, I might as well tell you how I love rabbits, deer and one of my favorite stories is Alice in Wonderland. This gift felt like it was truly meant for me, and not just some random blogger. It felt so me that I burst into tears while opening all the envelopes, ribbons and papers.. Big crocodile tears of overwhelming joy. I'm utterly amazed, and thankful to the Moon & back.♥

When I first published this post today I didn't even realize how I had started it; telling how I had won couple instagram giveaways. There you go, I said the same thing but with less self-sufficient way. Today's agenda was indeed to show you what I recently won from Uncommon Nonsense's contest. But first of all I must tell you a bit more about this amazing British clothing line, that is created by an unbelievably strong, undeniably talented and such sweet young lady Gemma. After posting this earlier today and letting Gem know about it, I got a link from her, saying "You can read about our story here." That link lead to LOVE & WARDrobe's blogpost written by Isabella, unveiling the incredible story behind Gemma and Uncommon Nonsense. Reading it through in the middle of the night, in complete silence and darkness, made my heart skip a beat. I had to come back to my blog - this post I had just made public seemed too light and merely scratched the surface. After all, having a read like that can't leave you cold - or otherwise you're heartless. I hope you click that link above and read through, every word of it. And if I loved Uncommon Nonsense before based on the clothes they're selling, now I love it more. I find Gemma and all of her unique designs to be are a true gem among all the faceless, copycat and bloodsucking companies in the business called fashion industry. I'm so happy to be able show even a little bit of support with my writing and photographs here.




Battling through an eating disorder, epilepsy and even strokes --each garment in the Uncommon Nonsense range is lovingly created with every fibre of Gemma’s willpower, with the aim of creating collections that can make any woman – regardless of size, disability or looks – feel and look beautiful. .. Named after a quote from Alice in Wonderland, Uncommon Nonsenses’ clothes transport you to a world where fitting into a garment is almost as easy as easy as it was for Alice to change size with her drinking potion. With an unusual and exquisite range of fabrics, Gemma describes her clothes as ‘quirky yet wearable.’  " - Isabella
“I do not believe that a bespoke service for clothes should hold a hefty price tag. If a woman needs advice and help in order to gain confidence when she is doing something a simple as getting dressed then I want to be able to support those women.” Pricing her standard sized clothing at the same price as her made-to-order service, every woman who choses to wear an Uncommon Nonsense dress can feel and look as special as the next." - Gemma

  16. Pitkästä aikaa (työn ja lopputyön takia) ehdin käydä lukemassa muiden blogeja ja huomasin, että sinulla on ehtinyt header muuttua sitten viime kerran ja muutenkin tuntuu että blogissa on näkyvissä joitakin muutoksia. Mitä kuuluu?
