We seem to be using this blog of late mostly to apologise for being tardy! We know it is an age since we last spoke but we have lots of new things to show you and a chance to win a Strumpet hat from our new collection so we hope that makes up for our absence!
Back in June we colluded with Miss Dixiebelle and the Red Bus on a photoshoot. Inspired by the Jubilee, it was all very pretty, patriotic & pin-up! Starring top Strumpet Tara Nowy and shot by the wonderful Paul Marr (who else?) we got a gloriously sunny day and a great result!
Along with our tiny cocktail hats we also got some photos of our new Strumpet essential beret. We will be adding this collection to our etsy shop very soon and would love to know what you think so leave us a comment here, or on Facebook, or tweet us @hellostrumpet – you know where to contact us…
One of the reasons we have been silent (barring a few tweets) lately is because we have both had exciting holidays abroad – Kitty to Gay Paris and Wanda to Kawaii Japan! We have come back relaxed, refreshed and inspired – brimming with ideas for our new collection (we are talking mohair and origami people!) As summer seems to have passed us by our thoughts are turning to autumn and layering up in silks and wools – it’s our favourite season. We couldn’t resist teaming this ravishing leopard print beret with a repro vintage bathing suit from Miss D’s and expect more faux animal print as the season changes.
“So how do we win a hat?” we hear you cry…pop on over to Love My Dress – our very favourite wedding blog. We are giving away a £65 gift voucher to spend in our Etsy shop to one lucky reader – just leave a comment for Annabel telling her what you’ve got your eye on and how you’d wear it…easy!
Love and glamour
Kitty & Wanda xxx
