With the massive success of the Nell Robe, a saucy little number in a shade of red that oozes old school glamour, I am happy to say that a black version has been made.  As soon as the red version hit the Betty Blue’s Loungerie shop (and the Small promptly sold out!) I had a flood of requests to make this beauty in black as well.  Well, my loyal fans, your wish is my command!  As I type this a group of very hard working Welsh ladies and gentlemen are cutting and stitching and pressing and finishing them off to the very best of British standards.  And even more excitingly I will have these in stock for the Victorious Vintage event at Portsmouth’s Historic Docks.

Of course those of you who pre ordered will have yours posted out to you as soon as they hit my desk – which is looking to be 31st May/1st June.  And you can pre order here if you haven’t done so yet.  There is however one little piece of information I have neglected to tell you.  The Black Nell Robe, has the option to be Crystallized.

You can choose to have your very own Black Nell Robe covered in hundreds and hundreds of tiny sparkly jet black crystals.  I was very excited a couple of weeks ago to get a shipment of 50, 000 crystals and wanted to crystallize EVERYTHING in sight, but I controlled myself and limited it to the lace panels on this dark seductive gown.  There are a combination of two different sized crystals which combined together catch the light giving a gorgeous shimmering effect.  Each crystal is individually hand placed and hotfixed into position, picking out the floral detail in the lace pattern.

The photos really do not do the beauty of the Crystallized version justice.  You will just have to buy one to see 😉 – yours for the brilliant sum of £150.

As with the red version I expect this to sell out quickly so do not miss your chance to own such a beautiful and alluring gown.  A little stock update on the Red Nell Robe, I have only 1 left in Medium and very few Large and of course the Small has completely SOLD OUT.

For now, I have plenty of Black Nell Robe’s on their way to me.  The plain Black Nell Robe, as with the original red version, is £85.  It is made of the same buttery soft jersey, that is stretchy and comfy, of the original Nell.  It also has the same beautiful lace midriff section that moulds to the curves of your body, nipping you in, in all the right places.

Why not pre order your own Black Nell Robe here.  And remember you can choose to crystallize your Black Nell Robe, just choose the option in the drop down menu ‘Crystallize My Robe!’

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this little beauty, just leave me a comment 🙂
Lots of Love
