More sale stuff & pretty bags!

All my Coquette Faux Furriers stock is in the Sale. Prices start from just £25!

(I'm keeping one of these, though - I think it suits me!)

I've knocked £10 off the price of the Tiki dress by Nicole Katherine Designs, in celebration of summer, longer days, sunshine and... well, rain and cloud as well, seeing as this is Britain. It's now £60 and can be found on the Dresses page.

I have renamed it the Tiki Babe dress, in memory of Faye, a well-known face on the rockin' scene who was quite a character. She passed away recently and will be missed. Her nickname was Tiki Babe, so it seems only right that the dress be renamed in her honour.

I like to mention other shops here too, so... just want to point you in the direction of Rocket Originals and their FABULOUS straw and rattan handbags.

Their gondala bags are in their Sale at £25, knocked down from £30.

Mine has just arrived and I love it so much that I've just ordered one in black:

And then I couldn't resist, I had to buy one of their circular straw bags:

I adore my red bag. It's a perfect replica and I'm sure my grandma still had some of these kicking about when I was little! (by then she tended to use bright pink swagger bags, but it was the 80s...).

Shop closure

Dear all,

Just to let you know that the shop is closed and will reopen on Saturday 17th April.

You can still visit Forthcoming Attractions and Gift Vouchers. Talking of Gift Vouchers, if you want an amount which isn't listed on the drop-down, let me know - it's eminently customisable! Also, if you want a nice card or something like that (usually the voucher code is emailed to the recipient) then let me know and I'll arrange something.

Best wishes,

Let's go bowling now, everybody's learning how...

A slight paraphrase never did anyone any harm!

I have LOADS of bowling shirts by Steady Clothing on the way, in April and then late May/early June. All prices are to be confirmed, but they will probably fall between £30 and £40. All designs are available in sizes S to XL (except the Houndstooth Panel). If you're interested in any of these shirts, then do get in touch. Larger photos can be found on the Forthcoming Attractions page.

Charlie Button Up April

Houndstooth Panel (brown only) April (sizes M to XL)

Leopard Collar Bowler April

V-8 Button Racer (navy only) April

Kingston Bowler June

Belvedere June

Classic V June

Our resident male model Emilio will be posing in the shirts once they arrive so you'll be able to see more detail. He'll also be modelling some more vintage Hawaiian shirts. If you've ever wanted a shirt which says ALOHA! across it, then now's your chance.

(and yes, I do feel like I've been rifling through Charlie Sheen's wardrobe, but somebody has to, I spose).
