Grab a bit of pure purple tech luxury

Here’s a perfect purple iPad ‘grab’ bag. Made impeccably of luxe eel skin by Makki. I really like the gold finishings on this as it really sets off the purple. And the way the zipper is designed in an asymmetric style gives it a special touch. Speaking of touch, eel skin is incredibly soft and supple too!

“Good gravy!” that Great Gatsby look continues!

1920s Style is Making a Roaring Comeback

What’s all the flap about?  Cloche hats, clutches, scrumptious fabrics and sparkle – the  style of the 1920s is having a moment.

Flapper dresses, pretty lace and beaded embellishment, bold nautical stripes, drapey silk ensembles and gorgeous scarves had their place on the  the runways.

Definitely a 1920s daytime feel at Ralph Lauren – pretty, youthful colours were popular after WWI. Click to see more on FashionLatest…

And the elegance of Speakeasies was alive in evening looks at Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Etro and Marc Jacobs – sparkles and beaded embellishment were big trends in the 1920s.

It’s no small wonder really.  Shows like Boardwalk Empire, films like The Artist and Baz  Lurhmann’s highly anticipated new adaption of The Great Gatsby aren’t just great entertainment – they are showcasing some absolutely fabulous fashion as well.

The actress of Boardwalk Empire model some gorgeous 1920s influenced dresses for a Vaniety Fair shoot.  Beautiful for Spring and Summer – light, airy, fresh and flirty!

Even London’s West End is getting in on the trend with a new production of Singing in Rain, about the birth of the ‘talkies’ in the 1920s.

Why are we having such a romance with the 1920s?

Perhaps it’s the parallels we feel to another decade – the 1930s – that’s making us nostalgic for a time associated with kicking up your heels.  During those years of depression in the 1930s, people must have yearned for the comparative frivolity and decadent fun of the 20s.

Maybe that’s what’s striking a chord with us now – the style of the 1920s brings some carefree cheer to our hearts!

So find a perfect flirtatious dress and pair it with Kitty DoLittle accessories to complete your spirited, fun and playful 1920s ensemble.  Unflappably stylish!

Kitty DoLittle has the perfect pieces for a 1920s look from the Head Down!

Headpieces were the height of elegance in the Jazz Age. For a really 20s look, wear this gorgeous Katherine Elizabeth across your forehead. Instant coquettish, flapper appeal!

Jewellery was influenced by soaring, sophisticated new Art Deco movement.

Semi-precious stones were also popular.

Blogger Mrs Roomtobreathe samples the delights of Kitty DoLittle

Here’s a tantalising excerpt from Mrs Roomtobreathe’s blog:

Discovering delights at the online store Kitty DoLittle

Anyone that knows me knows I am a sucker for accessories. My preference is for bold, statement jewellery, I’m not really a delicate kind of gal. As I’ve got older I’ve also found myself interested in the more ecologically aware brands as found on Kitty DoLittle. Andrea who runs the company has fantastic taste which ticks a lot of my boxes, her passion for every single discovery is displayed on each page of the website.
Kitty DoLittle recently underwent a facelift, whilst retaining its girlie appeal it is now more streamlined and easier to navigate, with clean, beautiful photography that gives a real idea of what a product looks like in the flesh. Do you find that you’re often disappointed when something arrives that doesn’t quite live up to your expectations? Not so with Kitty, the photos by Duncan Smith Photography give such a realistic impression of just how items will look in your hand.
Whilst on one of my regular browses, a few of the products jumped out at me, teasing me convincingly to add them to my ever growing collection. Here are a couple that have given me sleepless nights!
I love this cute gem, a bright vintage inspired yellow clutch by Marmoset Designs that will brighten up any outfit whether formal or relaxed.

I’ve always loved Mary Poppins style carpet bags which this novelty clutch really reminds me of, don’t you agree?

So take a look, and see which wallet might suit you?

All of these luxurious wallets are made of various kinds of leather.

The strong striped wallet by Black Tangerine is so sharp and gives you a bit of throwback to the 70′s. It’s got loads of space and in fact works well as a clutch with it’s hidden, slide-out wrist strap.

The classic eel skin wallets by BoBelle are so feminine and so incredibly designed. The midnight blue and deep purple add an air of sophistication. Seriously buttoned-down!

Another set of really popular wallets are the eel skin zip-around wallets by BoBelle. Really roomy and can definitely double as a clutch being big enough for your iPod/Android phone!

Aura Que’s buffalo leather is a good traveller’s wallet. Hardwearing, roomy and secure. It’s brass snap detailing is structural as well as functional.

The red eel skin wallet  is a sexy stunner with a detachable wrist strap, and the woven front is extremely rich and gorgeous.

You’ll find this video and others on the product pages of the Kitty DoLittle site, on our YouTube channel and on our Facebook page. Ther new videos produced by Duncan Smith, Donut Productions, give you a real sense of the flexibility, scale and scrumptiousness across a range of products.

On the prowl … Cambridge

On recent prowl to Cambridge there were a couple of nifty items I really have to show. 60′s all the way with this retro coat. Lovin’ the cut, colour and detailing:

To finish it off, and to perhaps, exaggerate your funkiness… Hang on to this patent leather lovely.

On the prowl … well, Everywhere!

I have seen this same outfit in so many of this stores windows – I am compelled to share it. Just in case you missed it! Ultra sexy and ultra feminine, just a couple of choice items will complete this eye-dazzling drapes and slinky skirt.

Keeping it simple and feminine, I think a gorgeous cuff like this one would be a sensational conversation piece.

Or … show a super strong and sexy edge with with this anodised aluminium cuff by Michael Peckitt, who artistic interpretations are sure to start a conversation.

While you’re at it match it with a shiny black bow clutch (it has a brilliant neon satin lining too! Ooooh-la-la!)

And, just to clinch the outfit you need to ensure to work it all atop the highest black points you can stand for your pegs!

People I rubbed into … Room to Breathe

Room to Breathe are a dynamic duo who have combined complimentary skills to bring a package that packs a powerful punch. One is the PR guru, the other the administrative Wiz. Granted, I have to share them with others, but they are virtual assistants afterall.

It’s an arrangement that works really well for Kitty DoLittle. As a fledgling business trying to find our feet in this topsy-turvy world; they’re amenable to both Pay-as-you-go or long term retainers. I love them.

They’ve really been a great support, taking care of things in the background and being available to assist on more strategic activities too. They’re flexibility and humour tick two more important boxes for me.

So if you find yourself in need of some real help to enable you to rise above the things that hold you down, give them a call!
