- If you’re wondering, the reason my children are literal giants is because they start every morning with a cup of joe and a small stack of pancakes 🤷🏼♀️😂 hahaha just kidding, but how cute is my tiniest human?! 😍 #rowanjoy #auntiedates
- Lots of new split Jessie dresses headed to @godivaedinburgh in their A/W stock drop. Love the combination of all these prints but I think number 1 is my favourite. All will be available in S,M and L.
- Got to doll up for this #beauty today and shoot in #breathtaking Glencoe! Even with grey skies and a mist (and midgies!) in the air, it is jaw dropping! 😲

- Good to see you @rowanjoy (and Colin) at the shop this weekend and how wonderful did you look just a month away from your due date. My friend Rowan is very talented and makes the most gorgeous and unique dresses, ideal for a special occasion and has a ready-to-wear line too: @rowanjoy x @godivaedinburgh @3hillstreet #friends#visiting #independent #designers #dresses #godiva #hillstreethouse #christellechamberlandjewellery #colours #handcrafted#in#edinburgh#scotland #weddings#parties#everyday #wear #rowanjoy #special #notonthehighstreet
- For everyone who loved the lace top from a couple of weeks ago, super happy to be able to share some images from the day.
A bit in love with how beautiful Laura looks in her bespoke lace top. Laura found her skirt in Hamburg but wasn’t in love with the original top that went with it and wanted something much more personal to her. All the lace on the bodice of the top was hand placed and appliquéd on to tulle. Laura then designed her own personal illustrations which were added to the top by the super talented @rosienoon. Simply beautiful.
- Brides to be, are you looking for something truly awesome to wear over your dress? How about a one-off True Romance pompom bomber jacket, a special one-off collaboration between myself and @tiarastrash - vintage brocade with fawn pom-poms and Crystal and laser cut letters on the back. Size small, £350. DM me any questions.
- Aaaah! Surprise drop from @rowanjoy featuring this stunning full skirt Jessie dress in leaf print waxed cotton. Only one of each size S/M/L available! And don’t even get us started on the one off reversible jacket in a size S/M... 😍😍😍 #inverness #surprise #rowanjoy #scottish #shoplocal #supportindependent #oneoff #exclusive #limited #grabonenow #tweed #cotton #dress #jacket #waxed
- I’ve been hesitating to post photos of my outfits because, here goes: I AM AN OUTFIT REPEATER.
I have a wardrobe of only a few pieces, and so I’ll be posting the same skirt twice in a row. Because I’ll be wearing the same skirt twice in a row. 😆
But you know what? I’m embracing it. Welcome to my #capsulewardrobe. This is how my clothes go together; this is what I wear.
- 3 weeks today, @tiarastrash , @mischkelingerie and myself are having a sample sale at our studio @3hillstreet .

- The tie shoulder sundresses have proved to be popular in the warm weather so we’ve been busy making more to restock @godivaedinburgh. The embroidered versions are the perfect dress for wearing to a summer wedding or party.

- Love this photo of one of my April brides Helen, having the best time trampolining in her dress, @caroweissphoto you are the best.
Helen chose the ginger dress with extra lace detailing at the back and looks absolutely stunning and full of joy at her glorious day at the fabulous @camboestate. Ginger is proving to be a popular style from the collection, the shape suits everyone and from all accounts is super comfortable and easy to wear. I mean if you can trampoline in it, you can’t go wrong!
- Tonight this baby will go to bed but tomorrow she will wake up a two year old ❤️*queue tears* Time is flying by much too fast, but I guess that’s the trouble with time... the days are so long and the years are so short! I love you #rowanjoy and I can’t wait to watch you continue to grow up into the incredible person I’m certain you’ll be. ❤️

- We said a sad farewell to our lovely art technician Rowan Maginnis today, her last day at MES after seven years. She is leaving us to have a baby in September and also to continue running her own bespoke wedding dress and fashion design business. All the best of luck from us all at MES Rowan! #rowanjoybridal #rowanjoy
- RED KEDS AND AUTHENTICITY/ @Robs10kfriends is meeting 10K new friends. I was number 1679. I am meeting 100 new friends. He is number 1.
When I asked him if he gets nervous meeting new people, he said, ‘I don’t anymore because I know what’s on the other side of the hour: connection.’
The key to connection: red keds (or, an electric tangerine coat) so they know who you are. After that, Authenticity + Trust.
Rob, thank you for inspiring my project, and for giving me guidance and hope in it.

HOW WE MET / I found out about Rob’s project on Instagram via @GraceGordonOfficial and messaged him to meet up.
I wrote more about my #FriendsofXandra: 100 New People project on HeroineTraining.com/friends (link in bio). If you know someone I should meet, please connect us 🙂

- My favourite part of making wedding dresses is when I get the photos back from one of my brides days and get to see them looking glorious and beaming.
Fiona was my gorgeous April bride who chose the Sakura dress and got married under the canopy of trees at tullibole castle, she really was the queen of the woodlands. She looks absolutely stunning. I’m so happy she was the first bride to get married in this style, it makes such a beautiful statement.
