It’s no secret that I am an advocate for homegrown Aussie designers. And my favourite of them all? SASS & BIDE of course! SASS & BIDE is the brain child of Aussie duo Sarah-Jane Clarke (sass) and Heidi Middleton (bide). My love affair with S&B goes all the way back to my early teen years. I remember saving up my pocket money so I could be the proud owner of their “East Village Hipster Jeans” back in 1999. It was an age where you and your six besties wouldn’t be caught dead wearing mismatched outfits. So we marched around like a group of proud lemmings wearing our S&B jeans like a badge of honour.
It’s crazy to think that just a few months ago I was tapped on the shoulder by a beautiful stranger and asked the question “Are you Gemma Peanut?”. To which I replied “Oh My God, yes!”. She then went on to tell me how much she loved my blog and that her friend Heidi from S&B had pointed her in the direction of it. I’m sorry what?! This took a second to compute. “Wait a minute!” I said, “Heidi Middleton knows about my little Peanut Gallery?” (At that moment my inner thirteen year old fainted).
It’s even crazier to think that now, many years since my first introduction as a wee teen, that S&B would grant me access to their new collection before its season release for my Peanut Gallery! And once again I am proud to wear this dress like a badge of honour, collaborating with a label that I have been a fan of for well over a decade! Happy Days indeed!
Love Miss. Peanut x
