I still remember the first time I ever stepped foot into the @wheelsanddollbaby store. I was 17 years old and in the middle of filming Top Model. And that's where my love affair began 💘 when filming was finished and I went back to my normal life, I was in year 12 at school and I saved up ALL my money from my part time job at Wendy's 🍦 to pay off my first W&DB dress I had on lay-by for my graduation+Top model finale after party 🙊 I still have the dress, one of their most classic cuts and the iconic leopard print pattern - which still fits like a glove 7 years later 💖 I was obsessed at first site with every collection they had. I also remember how excited I was to shoot my first look book with them (I think I was 19..?) and finally MEET Mel - and she is just as fucking fabulous as I imagined she'd be! I'll miss coming into the store and playing dress ups and drinking champagne with all the dollbabys!
Congrats Mel on what an iconic Australian brand you have created over 30 years, I will treasure my pieces for the rest of my life!! Good luck on your next chapter, I will miss you!!! 💕💘💋
