Lady Luck Rules OK made its West End debut last night at the Covent Garden Urban Outfitters Christmas Shopping event. We designed a boudoir style Pop-Up Tattoo Parlour for the night with black and white chequered flooring, leopard print stools, leopard print aprons and a screen decorated with designs from our Personalise It! collection.
The boudoir gals and concept creators were our interns Chloe Pye (left), Kirsty Fletcher (right) both students from Camberwell College of the Arts London and me!
Chloe is studying illustration and is a huge fan of tattoo artwork so she became our "tattoo-ist" for the evening. The store opened at 5pm with a crackin' 20% off everything, a free bar and music by the Young and Lost Club Record label DJs. We were up on the third floor and from the second the store opened our little parlour had a big queue, it was very exciting!
Our super cute intern Aline from Berlin came to visit us and hopped into the chair for her very own personalised tattoo. It doesn't hurt Aline, promise!
Most of the staff from Urban hopped into the chair at some stage in the evening and this lovey gal had her pups name on one arm and her beau's name on the other. Aww.
This guy gets the prize for the best placement of the evening although there were a few other suggestions Chloe politely turned down! As usual we took too many photos to fit on the blog so why dontcha check out our flickr page...click here!
'Tis the season a girl likes to indulge in a bit of razzle dazzle so we've opened up our festive jewellery box and boy have we got a treat for you! An all new range of nine Lady Luck Rules OK designs handmade from a snazzy mirrored acrylic. I have to say the photos don't do the material any justice, mirrored acrylic in real life is a super slice of vintage Vegas and so perfect for the party season!
Designs include two adorable toy animals - a Pony and a Hooters owl both perky, plump and cute as a button! Looking for a lucky charm? Then check out Lucky our double horseshoe design with dinky star cutaway detail. Next up is the Hapless Heart and Super Star both with sweet puzzled expressions and quarter moon eyes, are they evil? No! Just shy. Back by popular demand is The Fang but this time much, much larger and just perfect for a glam-goth girl looking to vamp it up! Wanna treat your bestest gal pal? Then snap up Friends Forever the best friendship necklace in the universe! Fed up with frou-frou bows? Then pop on our Heart Bow Tie necklace to sharpen up your tux jacket and short shorts combo. The festive season is all about posing at parties and our glam a go-go Star Sunglasses in real life size are the perfect party girl prop!
Each design is available in a choice of four jewel-POP colours: ruby red, teal, go go gold and purple pop! See the whole collection, click here!

I'm delighted to reveal our festive season personalised goodie - the Rockin' Horse Name Necklace and Brooch! The design was inspired by my love for vintage wooden toys and ALL things pony related. The decoration on his saddle hints at circus chic, his tail is all perky and his eye is peeking at YOU! Each wooden Rockin' Horse is printed with the name or word of your choice (up to 9 letters), varnished by hand and made into a necklace on a short or long chain or a brooch.
A big thanks to our cutie pie gal pal Anastasia for agreeing to dress up us a super cool showgirl for our Rockin' Horse photoshoot and a big thanks to Tomoko Kinoshita for creating the amazing showgirl hair and make up! We're looking forward to wearing our Rockin' Horse Name Necklace to oodles of festive parties with homemade head dresses, harlequin frocks and lots of red glitter!
