I’ve been a little MIA over the past few weeks, and while I hate that I’ve slacked off, it did give me time to rethink a few things. One of them is that I want to start releasing new videos every Wednesday instead, because as you’ve probably noticed, Fridays haven’t been working well for me.
Once upon a time – and by once upon a time I mean up until last December, when I took these pictures – this was my favourite dress. There has never been another piece of clothing in my wardrobe I cherished more. Whenever I needed a little pick-me-up, felt happy and wanted to celebrate, or just wanted to feel pretty, I’d wear my “pony dress”. If you walked past the store I used to work at on a day when I had it on, I’m sure you’d spot me mindlessly petting the fluffy horses.
As I’ve mentioned before, Lady Petrova made the move into bridal wear earlier this year. The Melbourne designer closed down her Flinders Lane boutique where she stocked various labels as well as her own and set up a new home in the iconic Nicholas Building. This past July she released her first ever ready-to-wear bridal collection, “As You Wish”.
The internet is so full of motivational quotes that by now most of us are immune to them. Every now and then, however, we come across one that jumps off the screen to come live inside of us. That’s what happened to me this week. Routinely scrolling through my Instagram feed, I found this quote:
If you’ve read the older posts here on MissMatchy, you know Lady Petrova is one of my all-time favourite brands. Her Flinders Lane boutique was my happy place – where I’d go to when I wanted to feel better after a tough uni exam, when I wanted to be surrounded by sparkly things or even when I just wanted to have empowering girl talks with women I came to know and admire.
