I have adored Missy Melly’s beautiful, clothes since she first opened her doors. Shantell has great taste and an eye for detail. Every piece is so stylish, and the fabric choices are just divine. But if this gorgeous Summer range was not enough to send me into a spin, the collaboration with Appleberry Kids for their gorgeous bags, necklaces and bracelets, and Winnie&Clem for their stunning hats certainly is. I know what my little poppet will be getting around in this Summer.
Allow me to introduce Missy Melly’s top models, Shantell’s beautiful twin daughters Madison and Elly (yes, that’s where the name comes from). Such little troopers. Shooting a summer range, on Melbourne’s beaches in August, is not for the weak! The weather in the lead up was terrible. Typical Melbourne August weather. Cold, wet and windy. It was still raining as we drove to the beach hopeful that we could give it our best. But we were blessed with sunshine the moment we stepped onto the sand. The girls had a great time playing, even venturing into the icy water at times. They were so patient through multiple clothing changes, and so helpful. Just as we were finishing up the clouds started to roll in again. The girls rugged up nice and warm and headed off for a well deserved hot chocolate.
Thank you Shantell, Maddy, Elly and Amanda. It was a pleasure to work with you all. x
