Why oh why do we put so much pressure on ourselves at this time of year eh?
AND while we are at the ‘why oh why’ stage, can you also remind me why I work in retail?
My gorgeous man broke up from work nearly 2 weeks ago and now to add insult to injury, Ms. May is also home (*insert biggest smiley face ever*) after finishing her first Law Clerkship placement (which she LOVED, I might add) AND (yes, another and) she is off for the next 3 weeks, before starting her second Clerkship placement – Yes lovelies, all of this is happening ,while I WORK.
It makes me sad and a tad envious. I feel like I’m missing out.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love my job.
I work with some fabulous people, people who I have really connected with BUT, yes there is always a BUT…
Can someone PLEASE instigate changing store opening hours to give retail peeps Boxing Day off as well as Christmas Day?
Just two days off together would be grand.
Please and Thank-You.
In reality, nobody needs to go shopping on Boxing Day right?
Surely, we should all be capable of buying enough food and clothes to last two days. Yes?.
Christmas is a time to spend with your loved ones, to connect, catch-up and relax.
Pure family time.
Don’t you think it be nice if everything stopped – just for two days?
Just imagine…the silence. BLISS
Ok rant over, now let’s get down to business.
Have you heard of Mrs Rushmoore yet pretties? If not I’d love to introduce you to them…
‘Based in Melbourne, Mrs Rushmoore is a creative collaboration between two old friends, Anita Moore and Suzie Rush.
We’re a small fashion label inspired by limited options in the market place for age appropriate garments, of high quality, contemporary detailing at prices you don’t have to shuffle your bank accounts for’.
Well, I was more than a little excited when I received a parcel from Mrs Rushmore – it was a total surprise it also came with a beautifully hand-written card…Gosh I’m a sucker for a card!
To say I was happy when I peeled back the cerise colour tissue, is a touch of an under-statement.
I beamed with glee.
This little beauty was smiling back at me.
What’s not to love, right?
Shirtmaker Denim Dress $165.00 I’m wearing a Medium | My faithful Rockport Shooties – that just keep on giving!
Cute yes? And it has POCKETS.
Anything chambray always gets my vote to be honest, but pockets they just make me complete.
Chambray just goes with everything, and I’m yet to meet a person that it doesn’t suit…and this piece is no exception.
I love the softness of the fabric and the colour just makes my day.
In case you hadn’t noticed before, I adore blue.
This dress is like the Shirtmaker dress that I gushed about from Bohemian Traders. It’s a dress that you can grab and make look a million dollars with minimal effort.
You can wear it simply with a pair of slides to the supermarket or add a heal and pop to lunch with the girls.
It’s the type of dress that never lets you down.
Best bit besides the pockets of course – it skims over all of my lumpy bits!
And to top it off, the sleeves make it a great trans-seasonal piece too.
Yes, you’ve guessed it. It’s a keeper.
But above everything, it’s the quality and workmanship that made me look twice.
So much so, that immediately after tearing open the parcel I quickly emailed Anita one of the founders at Mrs Rushmore to ask her a few background questions.
First question was: “do you sew?”
Yes, of course, she sews. It was a dead giveaway.
I’m also not surprised to find out she was once in the bridal industry for a while. Somehow, it just makes sense to me, that she was.
The attention to detail is there – the extra bit of magic/love just popped out at me.
She also sounds like she really knows her stuff, which makes me love her work more.
It’s really obvious that Anita is passionate about quality, something I’m passionate about too.
Yes, when you can make frocks – you know what you expect from a product and if you buy from Mrs Rushmoore, I don’t think you’ll be in the slightest bit disappointed – because, I’m not.
So girls tell me, have you heard of Mrs Rushmore yet? Are you a fan of the chambray/denim dress?
This dress was gifted to me in accordance with my disclosure policy.
