Katherines Closet

Last weekend I was invited to act as chief ribbon cutter and all round ligger at the opening of a beautiful new clothing store "Katherines Closet" 
Emma Adams one of the owners is a reader of this blog, and pug devote (she has a little black pug called Puglet  and a tattoo of it on her arm) so basically is everything I look for in a person.

With the two lovely Emmas who own Katherines closet-aren't they gorgeous
Of course I was thrilled to be asked because I think Emma is awesome but what made it even more special was that katherines closet have become the first shop to stock my Nicky Rockets range of tee-shirts. Yes Curverella is now on the high street.
We have always resisted supplying to other people before, too scared that our vision would become diluted or worse still be sold by outlets unsupportive to plus size women but as soon as we spoke to Emma and she approached us about supplying her shop we knew it was  a perfect fit.

Katherines closet is now open

The shop is as I suspected absolutely gorgeous. leopard print wallpaper, beautiful lamps and a really well curated collection of vintage inspired clothing-ooh and the best bit lots of plus sizes too.Yes this is a shop where you can walk in with a group of pals of all different sizes and every one of you will find lots to wear and try on. Its how all shops should be.I am very proud to be associated with it.
Admiring the beautiful clothes and guess what everything's in my size! Excuse my red sweaty face, it was so hot!

Woof Mummy needs to blot
There is a really fantastic selection of all my favorite brands including Hell Bunny, Lindy Bop, Born bad Betty  and Collectif. I had a great time trying on clothes and my two favourites were definitely these two which I think were both by Lindy Bop.

How cute is this blue leopard print
I fell hard for this frock and yes I took it home

As well as so many gorgeous clothes the store also stock some beautiful jewellery and amazing hair flowers by a company called Rockabilly Red I passed a very happy half hour trying different ones out.

I'm like a kid in a candy shop

The beautiful Betsy Harmony serenaded us and there was lots of fizz and cupcakes. Just a dream really.

Cupcake love

Seeing the Nicky Rockets designs in an actual shop was such an amazing moment for me and Nicky and even better seeing people trying them on and buying them. It was quite surreal and immensely gratifying. 

All the girls who worked in the store were wearing them which was adorable and proved how good our designs look on all shapes and sizes. 


Nicky Rockets surrounded by his work

We took Mister Truffles along and met so many pug lovers and owners of little dogs. It was if the universe brought all the retro loving, small dog adoring ladies together for open sunny afternoon to worship at the church of Katherines closet. 

Mister Truffles loves katherines closet-how do I know? he weed in their doorway
