I say it every year, this time I'm going to be organised and I really won't be running around central London on a weekend in December (it was even Christmas Eve last year) when I should be in the pub drinking mulled wine and stuffing my face with mince pies. So this year I've decided to do *all* my Christmas shopping online, ha ha ha, but oh no Royal Mail have other ideas with their strike shenanigans. Leaving just one strategy - shop online AND shop early! So if any of you sassy shoppers out there want to join my hassle free plan and you have your eye on one of our pieces then we're going to give you an exciting earlybird discount for being so god damn organised!
Just enter the code EARLYBIRD during the checkout process to snag a whopping 25% discount off EVERYTHING! You have from now until midnight Monday 2nd November.
Wanna know the best part? By saving money on your Christmas shopping you can totally justify treating yourself to a little jingle-jangle piece of jewellery to jazz up your little black dress for the party season ahead. My sizzling hot pick of the week for a party frock accessory is the Fox Costume Pendant - do glitter the grown up way with this real pretty bronze hue, watch his twinkle swarovski eye put your dancefloor buddies under a spell and he hangs from our all new vintage look snake chain. Yeah.
Halloween is one of my favourite nights of the year and I usually end up at the legendary I Love Lucifer party hosted by Oh My God I Miss You at Bethnal Green Working Mens club. With hundreds of spooked out revellers trying to get in, dressing up is a must and this year I'm going as a Biba inspired 1920s vampire flapper girl! My outfit is all black and gold topped off with our all new double sided Love Potion No. 9 necklace. The art deco style pendant is a poison bottle with broken heart motif on one side and a potion bottle with love heart design on the other side. Each necklace is handmade from glossy black acrylic with a vintage look gold toned ajoure detail. I'm quite excited about being a stylish spook this year and I'm sure I'll be wearing my potion pendant on Halloween AND beyond.
I leave you with my favourite rendition of Love Potion No. 9 by Japanese pop princess Nancy Sit!
Cats + Rock'n'Roll = My life (pretty much) so this collection has been a long time coming! Plus we've been working with a bunch of new suppliers so it's taken some time to get every little last detail exactly how we wanted it including the most *amazing* new chain! But today is launch day and we're delighted with each and every piece! First up is the Rock'n'Roll Kitty Name Necklace, you may recognise this little fella from our stand at the V&A Village Fete in August. Yes, we've been working on the collection for that long! We print the acrylic ourselves so we've added in a cute personalised element - a cat holding a record with your name on it! Cute, huh? We've also gone back to our roots and designed three full colour enamel pieces: Keyboard Kitty, Music Lover and Rockin' Kitten with lightning bolt dangle. Plus two gold toned charms Catnap and Baby I Love You with little heart dangle. Each piece swings from a 45cm diamond trace skinny gold chain which kinda winks when it hits the light. So beautiful. Layer up with your vintage gold charm necklaces and wear morning, noon and night!
Lady Luck’s Pop-Up Tea Shoppe returns to the Affordable Vintage Fair on Sunday 25th October! The Fair has moved to a larger venue - the Sustainable Studios which is just moments away from Brick Lane. We'll be serving up a delicious menu of home baked fancies and fairtrade tea on authentic vintage crockery in a nostalgic tea shop setting. We're still putting the finishing touches to the day and will update you all very soon, but for now pop the date in your diary and check out what else is happening at the fair!
Dance to the disco forest beat with our all new collection of costume pins and pendants to fill the jewellery box of your wildest dreams. Each mesmerizing piece has been lovingly designed and hand crafted for our first ever capsule collaboration with legendary east end fashion haunt Hoxton Boutique. The gallery like space features a Studio 54 style interior with gigantic mirrored disco ball and neon lights and is known as a treasure trove by the locals.
Midnight Forest embraces our adoration for vintage costume jewellery, celebrates our dedication to gold & black and makes us dream about running wild in a moonlit woodland. Each piece has been thoughtfully created from a mixed media of unusual materials including a lustrous pearl glitter and a brushed gold toned ajoure detail.
We’re delighted to reveal Midnight Forest pendants dangle from an all new chain custom-made especially for us from a UK supplier! The walnut pendants hang from a chunky 18” twisted rope necklet and the glossy black acrylic pendants hang from a slinky 18” snake necklet all of which are produced in a vintage-look gold tone.
Midnight Forest pins and pendants are best styled with dinky motorcycle jackets, brocade boleros, sixties mini dresses, fuzzy sweaters, velvet capes, black lace, slinky frocks, heavy metal make-up and all that jazz...
