It's no secret that I have a weak spot for glamorous frillies, particular those with a vintage look to them. Way back in the day, I wrote this post, in which I shared my discovery of faux vintage underwear specialist What Katie Did. Well, since then I've paid several more visits to the shop, in fact I pay a visit every time I go to the Portobello Road. I try not to, as it's an absolute certainty that once I enter the shop I'm not going to come out empty handed, but still I'm drawn like a moth to a flame.
Because I love the brand so much, I've decided to promote What Katie Did on my blog. If you click on the very attractive button in the right hand column, you'll go straight to the What Katie Did website. And if a visitor from my blog ends up buying anything I get a few pennies pocket money to put towards yet another bra (at the last count I had almost 30, ahem…)
So what is it that draws me to What Kate Did products? Well, the styling is out and out retro - beautiful fabrics, pretty colours and vintage style stitching - but the cut and shaping of a lot of their products is modern, which I like. The only style from their range that isn't really me is the Bullet Bra. The shape is just too pointy for my liking, but I know other What Katie Did fans that swear by them for the great retro silhouette they give. Here are some of my current favourites anyway:
The Jubilee bra - it has the modern underwired fit I like, with lovely vintage stitch detailing. And it's red…
For those of you who like a bit of animal print, then have a gander at the super glam Josephine bra, name after Josephine Baker
Gorgeous French knickers...
The Hollywood Camiknicker - an adorable playsuit combining 40's style French knickers with a cami top
And finally, the perfect, perfect swimsuit
Their January sale has just started, so go and take a look. You never know, you may be tempted to treat yourself to some New Year frillies! Enjoy! x
