I just announced on Facebook that we had some new Kitty Dresses coming and it created quite a stir. I know you ladies love this dress as much as I do. Originally designed as a Day Dress, I found it works just as well for evening. I have chosen some deeper colours with an effective Anemone Print in Red and Teal this time. Also a fabulous Stamp Print in Black and Caramel and a gorgeous Pink Carousel design. You requested more novelty prints- so here you have them. They... Read More
Valentine’s Day is always a great excuse to dress up. There are always plenty of parties to go to- all you have to decide is if you see yourself as a Sweetheart or a Heartbreaker…or maybe a bit of both. Whatever you decide you can be sure to find a great outfit on our website. Nothing says Sweetheart better than our Sweetheart Dresses or you can sizzle while breaking hearts in something a bit more risqué like a Red Halterneck Pencil Dress or even a Duchess Grace Circle Dress. Whatever... Read More
I’m sure by now you ladies are well aware that rather than design a range, I make what I would like to be wearing. Summer is no problem as we have Dresses for every occasion in warm weather. This transfers well into evening too, but for daytime winter wear there wasn’t so much choice. I used to just wear Pedal Pushers with boots and a turtleneck. Always dressed up with... Read More
Our cute new Gypsy Tops have arrived. For Autumn I thought it would be a great time try out some Chiffon and Lace fabrics. I was very excited to find these wonderful faux lace effect fabrics as it made me think of Marilyn in Bus Stop. Just a shame we didn’t have time to make the skirt she was wearing too. The gorgeous colours in the faux Lace are just perfect for Christmas and NYE parties. The Chiffon would be great for any time; being slightly see-through it gives you... Read More
For years I have searched for beautiful Tea Timers. Where Men’s Hawaiian shirts have always been easily available, us ladies have always struggled to find the female counterpart. I have half a rail of vintage Hawaiian shirts but only 3 vintage Tea Timers. So now I have chosen some gorgeous authentic oriental prints to reproduce this cute blouse in. It is a great accessory for the beach or pool for over your Shorts. You may also find it handy at Cocktail Time as the Tea Timer looks great with Capris... Read More
Well I haven’t had time to write anything for a while since I have been so busy with production and the Pop Up Shop. Now the Pop Up is closed and after tidying up the debris things can get back to normal. I hope you ladies made the most of us making another batch of our Kitty Day Dresses the fabric is so authentic looking even the most avid Vintage collector could be fooled. I know I get lots of compliments whenever I wear mine. The Kitty has turned out... Read More
Well we know how much you love our 1940s style trousers so we try to keep the new fabrics coming. The neatly fitted waist and the flowing legs on these pants are completely reminiscent of the glamour of the 1940s. Such a classic shape but also comfortable and perfect for work rest or play. Smart for the office comfy for downtime and classy enough for going out in the evening. We have taken influence from our favourite movie Queens Katherine Hepburn, Rita Hayworth and Doris Day.
