Spring time rebel

As much as I love a Spring-time frock, there are times when I pine for trousers. Especially these Spire ones by Jolet who also make the cami. Great when the thought of seeing another Spring racing dress makes you go a little cross-eyed.

Neater dress in chambray

Oh my God. How much did I love wearing chambray shirts with brown brogues back in the 80s? While that look may be very Aggy Deyn, I am updating with this chambray dress by Dot and Herbey. Much more stylish, me thinks.

Embessie dress in black dobbie silk

What can we say? It's black. It's silk. It's 100% flattering. It's Dot and Herbey, of course.

This week we celebrate Dot and Herbey

Just in case you hadn't noticed, Dot and Herbey are one of our absolute favourite designers at Pussycat Black. As her gorgeous new Spring/Summer range has just arrived in store, we thought me might spend the week showcasing some of this season's highlights.

First up is the Marianne blouse in ink cotton voile. Perfect for this crazy spring weather that isn't quite hot or cold. Irresistible.

High tea secret messenger skirt and cape top

Dear Mrs Woo,

Thank you for making this lovely skirt and top. I just love the way they look together, but knowing I can wear them separately makes me feel like I have a more expansive wardrobe than I actually do. Please let me know when you are available to take high tea with me. I will make scones and jam.

Best wishes,

Pussycat Black

Have you spotted a zebra crossing?

Just two weeks ago a zebra escaped from a South African estate, where he lived a vagabond existence, and ran rampant through the streets of Johannesburg. Everyone thought it was very funny when asked, 'Have you spotted a zebra crossing?' The police eventually chased Stripey down and remarked on his frisky demeanor.

Okay, so this hand painted rust striped silk tunic is not very zebra-like, but who doesn't love a bit of stripe action? When you wear it people will surely say, 'Have you spotted a gorgeous woman in stunning silk stripes?'

In an era of self-help and talk shows, we all know that intimacy is important. Intimacy is about being close to your partner, being able to let your guard down. Being connected.

I'm no Oprah Winfrey, but I do know one thing: I really want to get intimate with this dress. I mean, I can see why Kuwaii calls it the 'intimacy' dress. Who wouldn't want to feel this sand-washed silk frock against her skin? Wear this and you'll never feel lonely/disconnected/unstylish ever again.

In store now.

I dream of Edie

I had a dream that one day I would find a stylish cotton dress. A transitional piece to get me through Spring, then Summer, even Autumn. A frock designed to give my body shape, but with modesty. Something with a bit of colour, but not garish.

I dreamed of Edie.

Dreaming bears

I had the strangest dream last night. I was running with bears. Then I woke up and put on my lovely wool hoodie and noticed this bear head detailing on the toggles.

Lovely bones

I don't know about you, but this 'Bones' dress by Serpent and the Swan makes me want to run barefoot through the woods, my hair glamorously tousled as my trusty pet wolf, Accalia, leads me to a sumptuous feast of woodfire stew and berries.

Besides, I love the skeleton hand button detail and drop waist pleat. Don't you?
