Behind the Scenes - December 2011 Photoshoot

This posting is a little late but im afraid christmas got in the way and all of a sudden I'm playing catchup!

Anyway, our last photoshoot featured the marvellous Missy Malone and the delicious Slinky Sparkles! I have been planning to divide the collections for a while into eras and to use the models to define them. Missy modelled our 50s range and Slinky the 40s.

It's always difficult deciding when is the best time to shoot - but with a collection of exciting new samples ready from our own range aswell as lovely new dresses from our exisiting suppliers, I decided to bite the bullet. Fabulous vintage hairdresser, Bethany Jane Davies, came to do hair (she is also my new hairdresser and does authentic vintage haircuts!) and I was also fortunate to work with fashion photographer Phil Witcomb who made the day both easy and exciting! Thanks to everyone for a great and very enjoyable day!

Welcome to our new blog

It is pretty shocking that it has taken us this long to start a blog....considering the amount we have to say! But here is our humble blog/diary/ponderings/mindless rants. Please bear with us whilst we find our feet and prepare our posts.

I shall be using this blog to introduce our new products (especially those from our own range soon to be launched), talk about our inspiration, share some vintage finds, recommend other vintage inspired retailers and share some of our thoughts on style and glamour from the 30s to the 60s.

It is soon to be our 2nd year anniversary and we have done a fair bit in that time. But this will be a great way for us to share our thoughts with you and hopefully hear what you have to say too!

So watch this space and we hope you will follow us!
