Flapper's Delight

Here's a peek at just some of the roaringly fabulous 1920s pieces you can find at the Doll. Dreamy, diaphanous chiffons, silk pyjamas, crepe and lace--so many of our favourites, and all in just one decade...We think Doll icon Daisy Buchanan would approve. 

Sunday at the Doll

And after four days and nights of vintage and cocktails, the Doll is feeling something like this:*

So, we'll be opening from 10 this morning, serving up vintage along with some much needed Bloody Marys and Sunday papers in the bar from around 2pm until 7pm--making a stop at Broken Down Doll a very civilised post Sunday lunch activity. 

*Please note that the Doll does not stock or condone any of the fashions featured in this video.

A tour of the Doll's House

Step inside, beyond the balloons in the window which have become our Chamberlayne Road 'Doll Signal'.

And a whole world of vintage treasures awaits...

It was once a hole in the wall, and in fact there are still a few actual holes in the walls, but we've done our best to turn what was formerly a working men's club into a fabulous vintage boutique. 

At least we manage to colour coordinate with the, ahem, interesting decor the holes have revealed.

Beyond the balloons is a shop. Beyond the shop there is a bar.

Beyond the bar the shop goes on...

What the Doll did last night...

If you already know what the Doll did last night because you were there, thanks for coming. We had a fabulous kick off to our two week pop-up. 

If you missed out on our preview night, here's a look inside the Doll's (temporary) house on Chamberlayne Road...

We love our little den of classic cocktails and exquisite vintage. Come visit us and see if you love it too. 

'Is amazedolls a word?'

What? What? What are you doing?*

If your evening includes plans that do not involve the Doll you may need to re-think your approach to life. If you do plan on visiting the Doll's house tonight, then we very much look forward to sipping classic cocktails with you as you enjoy the hundreds of fabulous pieces we have in store.

The Doll's a get it while you can kinda girl, so we're only around for two weeks! Dates, times, places, all you need to know is here:

Ms Doll's Beautiful Blues

Shake off those Tuesday blues and trade them in for something altogether more beautiful. The Doll's got Autumn/Winter 2012's favourite colour in all shades and shapes. 

Another reason not to have the Tuesday blues: It's almost Wednesday! And Wednesday is the Day of the Doll. Preview Night from 7pm. 72 Chamberlayne Road, London NW10 3JJ. 

Be there or be square.

Coming Attractions...

Upon this rather dreary start to a London day, the Doll will be mostly channelling Old Hollywood glitz and glamour.

There's so much more in store...We can't wait to draw back the curtain for our real-life preview: only TWO DAYS and a few hours from now!
