So it’s winter , out with the woollies and away with the frillies right? Well, no actually! Before you don that jumper and resign yourself to a winter of frump, you’d better read on…

This season’s big trend is underwear as outerwear, thanks to the catwalk creations of Jean Paul Gaultier amongst others, the corset is hotting up our winter wardrobe! And being a two layered garment its surprisingly warm too! So throw down those frumpy jumpies and take a look at these winter statement ensembles from the FairyGothMother range:

Classic n Classy

Teamed with this black satin fit and flare skirt and beautiful ornate burlesque beaded necklace your bound to turn heads at the poshest of parties. Team it up with a furry shrug and a pair of FairyGothMother’s black satinopera gloves and your good to go even if it snows!

Girly Ballerina

Imagine ballerinas crossed with Madonna singing ‘Santa Baby’ in her alternating pink and white dresses back in the 80s. This look epitomises everything girly and feminine! This long-line super curvy satin corset is available in pink, white and red amongst other colours; so whether you’re going for ballerina, snow princess or Mrs Claus this is perfect for the Christmas ball or saucy Xmas office party!

Pink not in your vocab? Try this look for a more ‘tough girl’ image – wear this pinstripe and red satin underbust over your fave skinny band T with this pleated pinstripe and black skirt. Top it off with a cute mini top hat with fish net vale for a truly glam-punk-rock look.

Where 2 wear: Rock nights at the local, goth clubs, rock music gigs.

Yes the goth look is a classic that has been redone countless times. Our reincarnation adds a touch of glamour with this exquisite sequined red and black overbust, featuring detachable sheer sleeves. We’ve teamed this beauty with the very versatile ‘Chicago’ burlesque skirt, which has adjustable ribbon ties to show varying degrees of leg! Don these Ophelia seamed Stockings by Kiss Me Deadly and your dressed to kill, or wound if your feeling merciful.

Where 2 wear: Burlesque evenings, goth clubs, the theatre, anywhere dark and mysterious!

As Winter draws in and we spend more time inside, turn up the heating and remember that lingerie isn’t only for the bedroom. Here are our top ten items we think you need to survive this winter!

1. Its the party season, so don your maid’s uniform and put up those decorations!

2. Nothing says winter like a hot chocolate with marshmallows. So curl up in a beautiful baby doll and enjoy a cup.

3. Too cold to go out? Put your bloomers on and spend the night watching girly films.

4. Soon the radio will be filled with Christmas carols so dance around the house in a pair of frilly knickers.

5. Remember, remember the Fifth of November by watching fireworks from the warmth of your home wrapped up in one of our lovely kimonos.

6. Curl up in a teddy with your favourite book.

7. Distract your opponents by wearing a silk chemise to win those all important board games.

8. Winter is known for its heart warming meals like casserole and Sunday roasts, so heat up the kitchen up even more cooking in a cute bralet and knickers .

9. Practice your Halloween party cocktails in a long girdle and stockings, we recommend trying a Vampire’s Elixir.

10. Why not serve up some freshly baked cookies in a delightful apron.
So as the cold months draw in don’t despair, just turn the heating up and …!



10 Essential Burlesque Dressing Tips

Categories: Accessories, Burlesque, Corsets, FairyGothMother, Kiss Me Deadly

For those of you who are new to burlesque or for those of you preparing for the approaching party season we’ve compiled our top ten burlesque items that a burlesque enthusiast cannot be without!

fgm-800 Lush satin bustle with adorable lace trims. Wear with your favourite corset and frilly knix for a stunning burlesque look.

  • 1. Corset – Whether you decide to go for an overbust or an underbust corset with pasties, it needs to make a statement. This can be done with colour, sequins, glitz, bows or frills.
  • 44-03 Striking overbust corset made in black silk dupion with black and red sequin front panel. py-03 This longer line Puimond underbust corset gives a fantatic shape whether you aim to tightlace or just like a a beautifully tailored corset.
     
  • 2. Bustle – Depending on the bustle, it can either be worn over your corset on the waist. Or worn lower down on the hips and tucked just underneath the corset.
  •  
    Satin halter soft bralet with cute frills and organza centre bow.
  • 3. Knickers – Frilly knickers can be a great way to emphasize your derrière, and they’re fun! However, if you’re feeling a little riskier a thong or g-string might be more your style.
  •  
  • 4. Stockings – Seamed stockings are great for an authentic burlesque look. We have a good selection in our London boutique, or online in the FairryGothMother Accessories section.
  • 5. Heels – It’s important to have that sexy wiggle and no better way to swing those hips than in a saucy pair of Natacha Marro heels!
    Natacha Marro
  •  
    ac-01 our satin opera gloves.
  • 6. Gloves – A fantastic burlesque move called the Glove Peel requires a beautiful pair of opera gloves. They must be easy to get off but stay in place when on.
  •  
  • 7. Fascinator – Why not compliment your outfit with a fantastic fascinator? A full range is available in our London boutique.
  •  
  • 8. Pasties/ Nipple tassels – If you wear an under bust corset a pair of nipple pasties are great. Helene Bach has some fantastic designs and you can even request your own designs. Our London boutique stocks some of these must haves. Twirling nipple tassels are also a wonderful addition to any act!
  •  
  • 9. Lipstick – Red of course! But which brand? Ministry of Burlesque has a few forum posts on this subject and the three top rated brands seem to be MAC, GOSH and Max Factor. Add a layer of gloss on top to give lips that luscious shine!
  •  
  • 10. Fan – Play coy by using a fan to hide and peep. Strictly Sensuous have a beautiful selection of feather fans.
  •  

Whether you’re interested in burlesque as a hobby or as a career there are some great classes out there where you can learn to Glove Peel, Fan Tease or a sensual way to remove your stockings. Check out Ministry of Burlesque’s forum on Learning Burlesque to find regular classes in your area. The Ministry of Burlesque is a great place to find a wealth of information on all areas of burlesque including performances, tips on make-up or outfits and connecting with other burlesque performers.

Burlesque - why not start a new hobby this autumn! And take a look at what we can offer!




Lulu and Lush dress Oxfam Dalston’s Window

Posted by on July 23, 2010 at 6:16 pm

Following in the footsteps of the infamous Harrods and East London’s Swell Vintage, Lulu and Lush have been causing a bit of a stir at Oxfam Dalston with our super-glam burlesque window! On Monday morning, we (that’s me, along with corsetry assistants Connie and Sophia) turned up with armfuls of corsets, petticoats and knickers and proceeded to cover everything in our path with pink tissue paper, pink leopard print ribbon, frilly knickers and sparkles. This was all much to the delight of passers by, many of whom very kindly took the time to pop their head in and talk to us.

Unique halter-tie and crystal overbust corset, ‘Blossom’ corset and tutus. Lots of accessories, including pink opera gloves and ‘Burlesque’ tie-side knickers.

Situated in the coolest part of London (according to Vogue Italia, no less), Oxfam Dalston is a well-loved treasure trove of vintage clothing, obscure music and designer bargains. The shop’s managers, Steve and Kevin, update an interesting blog (where you will find more pics of the window) about their experiences as well as regularly tweeting new finds, and were very lovely and accommodating whilst were throwing petticoats around and getting in the way!

‘Lillith’ babydoll, frilly knickers and a pearl necklace from the boutique. ‘Fleur’ soft-cup bra and frilled knickers set, Lulu and Lush tote bag. Connie and myself putting the finishing touches to the window.

The window features a mix of best-sellers, hand-finished unique pieces and items from our new collection, as well as a selection of jewellery and accessories. Oh, and a small pig.

Connie hanging up the purple ‘Jewel’ knickers Lots of accessories – frilly knix, ‘Burlesque’ knickers and corset bags

The bright sunlight made it difficult to take photos, but you can just about make out the Lulu and Lush pink ‘Blossom’ corset, ‘Burlesque’ tie-side knickers in pale pink and fuchsia, our frilly knickers, a unique customised classic FGM-468 overbust with halter ties and crystals, purple frilled ‘Jewel’ knickers, the ‘Lillith’ babydoll, two chiffon tutus and our brand new ‘Fleur’ soft-cup bra and frilled knickers set, which we’ve recreated in pink for the summer. We also decorated the window using items we found whilst rummaging in Oxfam’s basement, as well as opera gloves, ribbon corset lacing, crystal jewellery and some cheeky sequined nipple tassels from the boutique.

The finished window! These passers by seemed to like the display

Oxfam Dalston can be found at 514-518 Kingsland Road (next to Forest Road), and a mere ten minutes away from the Lulu and Lush boutique by bus.

The items will remain on display until Wednesday 28th July when Oxfam will be offering each item for sale at a discount price, but they’ve already been inundated with requests so head down there super-early to grab yourself a fantastic bargain whilst donating money to charity at the same time!
