So finally the time has come for me to be able to show you the much anticipated Betty Blue’s debut ranges!!  I have teased here and there as to what they look like over twitter and facebook, but I can now show you some of the products in all their glory on my fabulous models!!  There will be more photos to come when the website is launched, showing various views, colour ways ect and also some model pictures of the Marilyn scarf which I posted here before, but to start with let me introduce some things to you!

Bridgette Babydoll and Knicker Set

Meet Bridgette – The Bridgette babydoll and bikini brief set is a lovely bright and sunny summery outfit that will brighten up even the rainiest of summer days (well if you’re in the UK!!).  Wear whilst cleaning the house to put a pep in your step, whilst answering your many admirers love letters, or simply as a little nightie on a sultry summer evening.  The babydoll consists of a full circle body, that is great fun to twirl about in, that has an under cotton layer and a sheer chiffon over layer.  The shoulder straps are pleated vintage lace and the bottom edge is also trimmed with lace.  Just as in the 50’s/60’s the fabric is man made to give you that authentic retro feel.  And the price for such a fab little set?  £75 and it is all yours, wrapped in tissue and gift boxed for that extra special touch!

Doesn’t Miss Banbury Cross look spectacular in it?!!!!

The Rita Siren Suit

The second item of clothing is the Rita Siren Suit – A truly luxurious lounging ensemble like the ‘Rita’ Siren Suit has never been seen before.  Made from the finest stretch velvet and lined with a buttery soft jersey fabric and finished with sparkling black buttons, this Siren Suit will keep you all warm and snugly when your man isn’t there to do so for you.  You can almost envisage a film star reclining elegantly on a chaise longue with this ensemble on!   Designed with comfort and warmth in mind in the gloomy British winter season, this suit is a must have.  It is comprised of a little Jacket and wide legged, high waisted pull on Slacks.  Available in Classic Black, Moss Green and Aubergine.  Don’t miss this opportunity to own this truly beautiful Siren Suit, limited numbers have been made in each colour, with black set to become a Betty Blue’s signature line.  Grab the Rita suit at £130 for the jacket and £150 for the trousers, again tissue wrapped and gift boxed to perfection!

Fleur will attest to the snuggly warming nature of this fab little set.  We shot on a very humid muggy day, and I must admit I was a little worried she may feint!  But being the trooper she is Fleur survived and managed to look radiant and gorgeous even though she was dying inside.  What a gal!!  This picture shows the Aubergine version but it is also available in Moss Green (fab for red headed girls!) and Black (fab for everyone!).

Exclusive “Winter” 100% Silk Scarf (worn with the Black Rita Jacket)

The above picture and below are 2 out of 4 silk scarves with the following 2 to follow in Spring/Summer 2012

Exclusive “Autumn” 100% Silk Scarf

I am honoured to announce that such a beautiful and talented lady, Luna DeLovely, has designed a limited edition set of silk scarves exclusive to the Betty Blue’s website.  I briefly mentioned about these silk scarves in a previous blog post but here is a chance to see them on a person to get a feel for them.  The Luna scarves are perfect to keep your noggin warm and rollers protected on a winter’s eve or to add a splash of colour to a winter tweet suit – or the Rita Siren Suit for that matter.  The “Autumn” print is poppies of rusts and deep aubergines, evoking the colours of autumnal leaves.  The “Winter” print is a classic British Rose set in a warm purple border and the cheery polka dot background will help cheer up a dreary winter day. Proud to support the British fashion industry this outfit is 100% designed, printed and Made in the UK from the finest 100% silk chiffon we could get our hands on!  Get them whilst you can as they’re bound to go fast and they won’t be repeated!  Watch this space (well around February/March time) for the last instalment of Luna’s scarves for Spring and Summer.  And the price for these limited edition one of a kind babies?  £98, of course it goes without saying also perfectly wrapped in tissue and boxed up like a little present 🙂

Everything comes in sizes S, M and L and my size chart can be found here.

Of course this post wouldn’t be complete without a bit of bum licking towards the fabulous people I have worked with.  Photographer extraordinaire Tigzy of Tigz Rice Studios.  I couldn’t have asked for a better job done!  The way she has captured the movement and luxurious nature of the fabrics and shown the products off to their best is just amazing!!  Of course my fab models Miss Banbury Cross who is stunning in person and in photos! and the infamous Diary of A Vintage Girl writer Fleur De Guerre also enviously beautiful.   Oh and I have to mention Miss Honey Bear of Heyday Honey’s Vintage Hair and Make up for enhancing the models already good looks 🙂  I am so lucky to have met these wonderful people who have really helped me with the launch of my brand so THANKS I LOVE YOU!!!

So there you have it, the first few Betty Blue’s items.  There will be lots more to come, including a slinky little red number in time for Christmas (tell your other halves to save up now!  They will want you to have it trust me!), so keep checking back regularly.  All these items I will be taking to my official brand launch at Goodwood Revival – so pop along and get some goodies.  The online shop will hopefully be up around the same time, but until then if anything tickles your fancy give me an email at:

Lots of Love
