All Eyes on Scarlett …
I am back with some brand new pics, adventures and reviews from Zagreb city. I had some obligations, so I was absent for some time but I am starting summer with new post and my new collaboration with amazing young lingerie brand My Retro Closet. Main lingerie products from MRC are custom made babydolls and satin nightwear. I am wering sheer open front babydoll nightie, in a glamorous shade of scarlet red and french knickers (black and red satin by same brand). ‘Scarlett’ also has alluring front ribbon ties, allowing you to show or conceal what’s underneath.
My Retro Closet brand was born in the summer of 2014, the dream of one little lady straight out of graduating with a lingerie design degree and nothing but love for all things retro. Not wanting to settle working for a company she didn’t love, or a product she didn’t have passion for, she went her own way. This one woman band has visions of creating your go-to online destination for all your vintage inspired lingerie needs. A store based around all the things she loves; retro seamed stockings, gorgeous girdles and sultry nightwear to feel amazing in. To start, she brought together some of her favourite UK brands, other independent lingerie companies she had loved and shopped with for years, all with the same desires as her own and all complimenting each other perfectly. Creating the beginnings of her very of retro lingerie closet she could share with the world. Being a teeny tiny independently run business, it was at times disheartening, feeling like this little business couldn’t compete. But it got her thinking, “Well, I should put my degree to use…”, and the My Retro Closet own brand range was born, launching this little business with big dreams in a new and exciting direction.The ‘Handmade by My Retro Closet’ range of lingerie is created to sit perfectly along with the various fabulous brands that are already stocked, intending to be mixed and matched perfectly. All the lingerie and nightwear from the range are completely designed, from patterns to construction, from scratch and by hand from a little home office and sewing studio combined, in sleepy Shropshire. Inspired by all things pinup and driven by a love of designing and interacting with customers and what they want to see, this one woman band can’t be stopped. Here you can find the finest of vintage inspired lingerie and accessories to satisfy all your pinup girl needs. From some of the UK’s front runners in glamorous repro lingerie, uniquely combined with a selection of handmade nightwear, underwear and accessories, there are endless beautiful combinations you can create to make you feel amazing. All this, whilst supporting an ever growing independent business, run by one little lady with big ol’ dreams.
My model friend Nea Dune is wearing Joan Baby Doll, french knickers and cupid briefs. We are also wearing lovely Sophisticated Hair Flowers hair flowers by Maria S. Varela from Madrid and lovely Glitter Paradise confetti lucite earings. Shoes are by Pleaser, Teeze Bordello. But none of this would not be possible without amazing space and cars in our one and only car museum “Ferdinand Budicki” placed in Zagreb city.
