. . . I Feel Fine

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the fact that the world has not ended than by drinking copious amounts of alcohol in fabulous vintage.

We can now get on with planning our festive wardrobe safe in the knowledge that we will not be obliterated.

So come on down and celebrate with the doll for our last weekend at our Kensal Rise address . . . we’re here ‘til Sunday!

Apocalypse WOW!

Only one shopping day left until the end of the world! On 21-12-12 the Doll will mostly be wearing fierce French label 85/86 and rocking a futuristic 40s meets Blade Runner ensemble* Although we usually favour vintage this time around we're also stocking contemporary lines: 85/86, No Smoking and Natalie B Coleman.

This is your last outfit people, make it the most fabulous one yet.

*In case we have to defend ourselves from asteroids using only our shoulders.

Drinking Around the Christmas Tree

There's nothing the Doll loves more than being the best dressed at Christmas, starting the day in a vintage night shirt, donning luxurious lounge wear for cocktails in the afternoon and finishing the day with a touch of sparkle.

Come to think of it the doll also loves being showered with fabulous gifts, gifting that perfect little something and enjoying champagne cocktails through out the day.

The Doll wishes you the merriest of Christmases.

The Doll's Christmas Wish List . . .

What you’ll find this December under the Doll’s decadently decorated tree are sparkling vintage jewels and beaded collars for that someone precious, art deco cocktail ware for your aspiring mixologist, embelished trilbies from The Candy Milliner, as well as milk glass punch sets for the sophisticated party animal in your life.

So once you’ve crossed these off your shopping list and checked it twice, you will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy a drink in our cosy, candle-lit cocktail lounge in the capable hands of our constant spiritual advisor Ben Reed. As always, we invite our clients to take their time and shop the civilized way: cocktail in hand.
