The Superette gang were livin' it up Summer Fete style at the Viva Cake happening last Saturday and oh what fun we had... We hosted a whopping 7 hour "Badge-a-rama" session and had all the gals and guys strutting around the place wearing their very own pieces of badge art jewellery. Badge-a-rama - You draw it! We'll make it!
Eager floral frocked ladies and quiff toting boys were cajouled into gathering a heap of pens and templates, then drawing, dribbling and scribbling ensued. Finally the little sheets of magic were brought back to the stripy table and transformed into badges, necklaces and earrings! Hurrah! Picture above: snazzy customers designing away. Picture below: the Superette sisters *left to right* Lady Luck (no idea why I'm pointing at Gem?), Penni P, Super Sarah and Gem.
Happy punters also had their nails painted at the beauty bar, shopped at the Bric-a-Brac stalls, played poker and dominos, drank plenty of tea and scoffed all kinds of cake served up by the fabulous roller skating waitresses!
My boy Mr O showed up in the afternoon with our entry into the "bake off". Oh yes the Lady Luck lipstick lightning bolt logo shaped cake caused the girls to gasp! Our wonder cake had a pink top sponge and lemon bottom sponge with a jammy and buttercream centre. Mmmmmm. We fought off tough competition to claim 2nd prize and Sam wore his handmade rosette prize with lil anchors all evening.
We packed up the stand at 9pm and spent the rest of our night gossiping in the courtyard and having a knees up on the crazy light up dance floor. Phew! Can't wait to do it all again very soon. Hope you can join us!

It's that time of year again when Lady Luck flits off to the Bread and Butter trade show to showcase lots of exciting new goodies to boutique owners from around the world. This season we are treated to 2 European destinations: the beautiful city of Barcelona (which happened last week) and the hip to the beat city Berlin (we leave tomorrow, arghh!). So far we have scored new stores in Paris, Florence, Germany, Greece and Switzerland!
Our new collection features the biggest ever plastique cherry earrings and long necklaces in bright red, bubble gum pink and punky purple. As modelled above by the very bonnie Anita who owns "Inside" one of our new stockists in the hip Barri Gotic area of Barcelona. We also have metallic anchors and bows, shiny seahorses, dinky enamel cluster earrings and necklaces featuring pink bunnies, rainbows, stars, clouds and apples. We also have bamboo hoops, jumbo heart necklaces, bow rings and a whole selection of plastic snowflakes in different shapes and sizes...roll on christmas just for those!
Now you can't say we don't listen to you all here at Lady Luck towers... During our "name the chain" competition oodles of you wanted to know where you could lay your paws on the 'zine of the moment Super Super. We hopped to it and set ourselves up as a SUPER SUPER stockist. So BUY! BUY! BUY! right here sister! We'll be adding lots more *hard to find* books and magazines to a new book store collection later this summer, so any requests you have let us know!
It's kinda exciting here at Lady Luck Rules OK today as we're staging a double launch! Our debut tote bag collection Happy Shopper and our newest enamel design the super cute Docey Doe. All designs are being introduced to you by the ultra hip new face of LLROK: Suki Sou. Suki Sou is our Myspace friend and she travelled down from Brighton 2 weeks ago for a day of striking poses in front of our fave photographer and former Lady Luck intern Super Sarah.
Our hot rockin' tote bags are the perfect accessory for oodles of occasions! Minnie Mouse would like to be taken on lots of Saturday spending sprees as the super sized quality cotton canvas can be stuffed full with vinyl delights and vintage dresses! The Thin White Duke (our Bowie bag) can accompany a gal on a jazzy night out and will duly look after all her "overnight" bobbins from a nifty pair of sneakers if those stilettos start to pinch to an oversize make up bag for all important top ups! Space Wars would like to be your everyday side kick carrying your crafty knick knacks to the knitting circle to your organic veg from the wholefood store! Eat to the Beat (our Blondie bag) will be your thriftin' helper: Step 1, roll up tote and place inside hand bag. Step 2, Get on down to your local jumble sale/carboot sale/school fete/church table top sale. Step 3, spy that fun stack of vintage Jackie Annuals. Step 4, no longer do you have to let out a huge sigh because you have no way of carrying them! Oh no sister reach inside your handbag, unroll your super hot tote, purchase annuals and skip home! You're a HAPPY SHOPPER!
