Now, those of you who've been following LLROK for a while know that we're rock 'n' roll right down to our bobby socks. But I'll let you in on a little secret - we've been known to dance around singing into our hairbrushes to many a poptastic hit, so when we were asked to make some jewellery for this year's BRIT Awards we just had to say yes!
We decided to make some ace sparkling Glitter Tattoo Hearts emblazoned with the names of some of the performers and presenters of this years BRITs, including Lady Gaga, Cheryl Cole, Pixie Lott and Alexa Chung. Alexa's been known to rock some fab vintage style outfits around London Town, so we made her a totally unique Bronze Glitter Heart (the only one in existance!) to go with her collection of blouses and blazers. We also popped in lots of our golden Love Token charm necklaces: Music Lover, Call Me, Baby I Love You and Fang Necklaces will be adding a little Lady Luck Rules OK magic to the BRITs!
It was bright and early on Sunday morning when Team LLROK packed our bags full of dazzling jewellery and shimmied our way to Bethnal Green Working Men's Club for our return to the Love-A-Fayre! Wearing our best frocks, we put on our high heels and lipstick and set up our Valentine's Shoppe, packing it full of Love Tokens, Tattoo Hearts, Jazzy brooches and Go Go Glitter Earrings, Necklaces and Brooches. As a dashing chap began to play Hot Chip covers on the organ we got busy providing the guys 'n' dolls of East London with dreamy gifts that are perfect for Valentine's Day!
It wasn't all work and no play however as we grabbed some time to sample the yummy veggie sushi from Toshi at Donkey Monkey Cafe, and managed to make a few sparkling purchases before dashing back to our stand with heart shaped cookies just in time to meet Tinker the dog who was definitely the dreamboat of the day! We also got to meet several recipients of our much missed Personalised collection, including baby Florence and her mum who both had tattoo hearts! Better snap up the last of our Personalised Stock for Valentines Day, cos once it's gone it's gone!
We were super excited to be asked to make some jewellery for the burlesque beauties from The Double R club who were providing the entertainment for the afternoon, so we decided to make some unique Glitter Double Heart Necklaces for the girls with their stage names on - the very first time we'd made this product! Double R's hostess Elisabeth had the room wolf whistlin' away as she introduced the performers and explained the golden rule of burlesque - the louder you cheer, the more comes off!
We managed to snap Ginger Blush and Princess Angelique wearing their custom goodies - thanks girls! Ginger Blush performed a classic tease to a swinging Sinatra soundtrack, and Princess Angelique's exotic act featured an Indian inspired fan dance. Judging by the amount of customers pouring over the pasties that were for sale afterwards we're sure their fab performances gave lots of girls the burlesque bug!
The highlight of the day had to be Emerald Fontaine in a fantastic Marie Antoinette inspired dress and wig carrying a cakestand full of fondant fancies and some champagne for her act 'Let Emerald Eat Cake'. Emerald's costume was amazing and full of surprises including drawstrings on her dress to playfully show a little leg and a crinoline so wide it hid a champagne fountain under it! Emerald's deliciously decadent act had her passing out glasses of champagne and cakes to the lucky few at the front, as well as sprinkling the crowd with fake money that appeared as if by magic from a secret purse attached to her bustle. She also pouted and posed for some great shots for us wearing her Double Heart Name Necklace- Thanks Emerald! We can't wait to see more of your performances very soon!
We had a blast with our next door neighbour Zeena Shah who was laden with teeny golden charms including our dreamy valentine's treat Heart to Heart. She soon fell head over heels for our Bicyclette necklace too and snapped one up and popped it straight on. We love your styling tip Zeena, more is definitely more when it comes to golden charm necklaces!
However it was glitter that was really the star of the show on Sunday, with lots of girls going ga-ga for our Broken Heart necklaces and Go Go Glitter Earrings - a great way to get a little burlesque style without getting chilly in your lingerie! We also surreptitiously sold I'm Nuts About You squirrel necklaces and brooches to some dreamboats buying secret gifts for their sweethearts! But don't get tears on your pillow if you missed us, as this weekend we'll be at Laura J London's Vintage Valentine's Fair in Islington. Pop into the chic boutique from 11am- 7pm to snap up something for your sweetie or a treat for yourself!
