Rockabilly Weekender in Spain

  Trying to avoid the cold weather after being in Australia, it wasn’t hard to tempt me over to Spain for a Rockabilly Weekender. Especially since so many of my friends were playing. So after I organised for the new Kitty Dresses to be made I headed for City Airport. We got a really good deal on our trip and ended up with a lovely hotel. Having lunch with my old chums The Polecats they were very excited when I told them about the new Men’s Trousers we have in... Read More

Road to the Orient

Well ladies, I think we’ve outdone ourselves this time with our new Oriental Sarong and Bolero Sets. They have arrived slightly late, as we were waiting on the fabric that was taking the long journey from Japan.                           The designs have been taken from Vintage Kimono patterns and emblazoned with gold for the most glamorous effect you could possibly hope for.   I can’t wait to wear one of these gorgeous gowns to a party soon. When I... Read More

Fresh New Florals!

I’m sure you ladies have seen all our lovely new florals this season. Since I know many of you just can’t get enough of these dresses we have decided that most of the prints will be limited edition. This means we will probably only do one run rather than carry the fabric for a whole season. Most of the new florals will be in the sateen fabrics which I know you ladies love as it has a very slight amount of elastane in it for a more comfortable fit. So... Read More

Swinging Slacks!

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.
