The cats pyjamas!

27 Oct

Can you guess who's who?

What a couple of sweet pusses! This little vintage illustration displays exactly how Misses Kitty & Wanda feel in their new furs! We launched our Strumpet ready to wear line around about this time last year and have been extremely pleased with the response. We’ve been busily re-stocking our supply cupboards with gorgeous fabrics – from authentic 1950’s bark cloth to genuine Harris tweed – and buying up all the vintage trims we can find including sweet little fabric flowers and superb bakelite buckles; but the other evening we decided to treat ourselves to a little fur each (of the faux variety, obviously!). For Miss Von Wink, a fluffy and frivolous 3/4 sleeved snow queen number in shades of winter white and pale grey. For Miss Du Bois, an ultra glamourous dark tan evening jacket with a chic shawl collar. We also got a pair of rather smashing Dents leather gloves each and now feel well and truly pampered – well, you’ve got to treat yourself sometimes! Speaking of gloves, we’ll soon be stocking vintage hand candy in our etsy shop! We used to sell them at vintage markets and fairs and, given that it’s never too chilly to be glamourous, they’ll be coming in time for the cold weather – beautifully customised (or tarted up) by us!
