Miss Dolly's First Post!!

This blog post is well over-due, since I decided I wanted to have my own blog I just don't seem to have had chance to sit down and write a post, even though I've got lots I want to share with you!

I am Katy aka Miss Dolly, I am a massive lover of all things vintage, pin-up, burlesque etc! I love the whole scene you get to "meet" some truly awesome people both in person and online who all share the same love of the vintage lifestyle.

I am in the process of opening my own shop online, which will of course be selling everything I love....it will be primarily handmade & bespoke items, but also one off finds that I pick up on my travels! - keep tuned in on twitter and on here for updates on how its coming along and for an opening date :)

I've had a busy couple of weeks....my friend and I planned a trip to London months ago to check out lots of lush shops such as What Katie Did, Vivien of Holloway and Collectif. Well we went and it was "WOW" so much so we are going again in 2 weeks (to give us chance to get some pennies to spend!!) To find shops that actually make clothing/lingerie that fits my curves, was a breath of fresh air and I'm not ashamed to say I actually shed a few tears as I lack confidence and when I put on my first VOH dress I realised I had good curves - instant confidence booster!

Then it was my birthday last Wednesday, I had a lovely day got some amazing gifts including, money for the next London trip, Chanel No5 perfume, the most fabulous 50's style pinny my mummy made me (more to come on this in another post, inc pics!) lush shoes, Helen Rochfort bag (had soooo many compliments about this bag!), lots of little vintage pieces, and a few books I treated myself too (I will be blogging about them in a post soon)

I also bought my first Rockalily lipstick in Rockette Red, well what can I say I LOVE it!! I shall be buying more, it made my teeth look so white and stayed on for hours, even without using lipliner :)

Well I think thats all from me for my post....hope you've stayed with me till here :o)
