Ladies, this winter we wanted to make something special for you. We are always looking for that perfect jacket, to go with every outfit. One that is beautiful and fun, never going out of style, but also warm and cosy to keep the chills away. And it certainly is chilly living in the UK. We chose a bobble fur to line them so they would be so cosy you would never want to take them off. They look as pretty on the inside as they do on the outside. Did... Read More

Over the years there has been a lot of discussion about the variation in price for the same item. We have added the Deluxe Pink Label to our range so you know what you are getting will be even more special than usual. Some of the items will only be available with a pink label whereas other items will be available in either range. The pink Label with has a more luxurious fabric. This was something many of you ladies had been asking for and I am greatly looking forward... Read More
Winter chills Well, you may have noticed that we have been really busy this winter. We managed to bring back a lot of your favourite styles in winter fabrics. There are beautiful autumnal prints in the Kittys as well as taffetas for the evening. The Nazare made a short return visit. The Laura proved to be very popular again so we may try and make a summer version. Teamed with a raglan blouse or a Slash neck top it’s perfect for day or evening. We made the... Read More
Christmas is one of my favourite times of year. I started making our Christmas dresses early this year so we had a great selection of Novelty Prints and Satin. Some of the Christmas Kitties still hadn’t arrived at the time of writing this so we can still look forward to seeing them. I worked really hard and it has certainly paid off. I know it is sad when you miss out on one of the special prints but if we don’t keep it short and sweet we wouldn’t be able... 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
With the summer comes lovely spring colours. Our Raglan Blouse is the latest arrival. We have the usual must have block colours but, as usual, have found some gorgeous prints to run along side them. These blouses are just perfect with our 40s trousers, circle or pencil skirts and great with shorts too. You can wear them tucked in or out. For warmer days get cheeky and tie them for a real summer look!
I don’t know why it took me so long to bring out this great little top. It is a staple for any girls wardrobe and you ladies certainly agree as it has sold out 4 times already. So easy to wear our little Beat girl slash neck top is flattering and sexy. Slit from shoulder to shoulder with that extra hint of sex appeal while caressing those curves for a sexy silhouette. One in every colour for me with more to come for Summer! A great wash and wear item! ... Read More
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
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.
Well ladies I do believe Spring is here at last. We have been working hard here to make sure you have lots of pretty new prints in all your favourite styles. We started the year by adding these lovely new contrast Grace dresses to flatter your glorious curves. Something for every occasion! All our love, Vivien of Holloway x
