Get Cutie are a brand that have been on my radar, but sadly not in my wardrobe for a couple of years now. They are frequently in the small ads in the back of glossy magazines and independent boutique in Norwich SoHo Hip often has them in the window to tease me with.
I really love their sweatshop free, individually made ethos and their kooky fabrics as well as the fact that their clothes are available in a range of cup sizes.
On their website each individual item is given detailed sizing details, which is a relief for those of us the high street considers oddly proportioned. And, although I find (as is usual *sigh*) that to buy one of their pencil dresses to fit my hips would mean it being a full 4″ too big on the waist, they do offer a made to measure service. This means that come the day I have £100 to spend on dresses instead of, ohh, a tenner, I needn’t count that style out.
Each style is available in a range of fabrics. So in my fantasy wardrobe are:
Pencil Dress in Red Fan Birds Fabric £99.50
Half Sleeve Dress in Dancing Cranes Fabric £105
P.S. Really not loving the placement of the Virgin Mary in this fabric…..
Then, once I have these, I shall get them all again in some more of their gorgeous fabrics. They have skull prints, for the more gothic inclined of you and cute puppies and kittens for the more, er, well, I’m sure some of you can pull them off, I can’t.
Every time I go back through their swatches I find another fabric I love, kitschy cute or elegantly simple, I (nearly) love them all.
