No Debutante - Debaser

Today's personal style post starts with what I wore to my club night Bang at the end of 2013. Yes, I am slightly behind with showing you my personal style looks of late but who cares if they are still fabulous? 

I went for a fashion mash up of Grunge V's Rockabilly, the usual fashion chaos that you expect from me but I think it works. Pink hair, crop top, plaid shirt, 1950s jeans, ankle socks and creepers. Yeah!

The second outfit is definitely a grunge outfit with mix print plaid/tartan and monochrome clashes. The Aztec cardigan always gets a lot of love on Facebook and Instagram, this was a great purchase from New Look (bought about two years ago) that just keeps on giving! Love your clothes!!

All clothing from Vivien of Holloway, Topshop, Primark, New Look, Underground Shoes and Dr Martens.

Thanks so much for following and hello if you have just joined us!

Pebbles Patch

I really think I need to curl up and hibernate during the winter months, another week, another illness....It is very frustrating!!! I did manage to attend and DJ at my quarterly club night Bang last Friday and thoroughly burned my illness away by enthusiastically dancing for a few hours. Sometimes a night out is just what you need! Whilst at Bang I was chatting to my friend and regular at the club about this very blog post, the lady in question is Janine Curry who has a super cool Bristol UK based, kitsch and retro inspired children's wear label Pebbles Patch.

Pebble's Patch caught my eye with its vintage and retro style fabrics,bright colours, Kawaii cute prints, sixties style baby pinafore dresses and adorable retro printed cuddly toys. As you know, I do love anything vintage and retro inspired and Pebbles Patch's mix of prints, styling and vintage inspired products make you want to own every piece!! 

Janine started making little vintage inspired dresses and toys for her daughter Martha (who is a little younger than my daughter Sylvie) in original thrifted 1960s and 1970s fabrics and then decided to start up her own label selling kitsch print baby dresses, handmade cuddly toys, bunting, cushions and even a few prints of her own sixties and seventies inspired illustrations. 

Janine has informed me that Pebbles Patch is work in progress and that she hopes to add more children's wear lines for both boys and girls in the future. I was very glad to hear this as my only gripe was that the dresses currently only go up to 18 months old, so I am very excited to think I can dress little Sylvie in a Pebbles Patch dress in the near future!
