Winter is coming! As the weather starts to get a little chillier Rita Sue Clothing has put together a few essentials for the aspiring pin-up and lovers of classic styled clothing.
Cardigans and Coats
There is no need to put away your colourful frocks just yet, if you pair them with cardigans and petticoats to keep warm. Rita Sue has a range of cute cardis and boleros from Banned and Dancing Days, and is always restocking popular and new styles. For those of you who are looking for something cosier, our faux fur jacket from Collectif will be just the thing. We will be stocking some winter coats soon too.
Tops and Pants
Check out our high-waisted capris and pedal-pushers by Sourpuss clothing and pair up with a slinky Hepburn top or a crossover jersey knit top. We also have jeans in some larger sizes and a few cigarette pants left in store.
Glamorous winter dresses are also available in luxurious velvet fabrics. The black organza and velvet swing dress from Restyle is a great winter staple. The green, flocked velvet, figure-hugging wiggle dress from Zoe Vine is one of my favourites for comfort and is just one of three beautiful winter dresses in her range that we have stocked. And finally, in- store only, Rita Sue has the gorgeous Gilda dress from Pin-Up Girl (PUG) in leopard print and Electric blue.
We also stock a range of other great dresses for winter such as the PUG Monica dress. Please note, however, that PUG styles are only available in store, so check our Facebook page for new styles coming into the store and message us regarding availability and sizes.
Glory Days recommend that you pop in to Rita Sue's beautiful store, based in the historic surrounds of St Kevin's Arcade on K Road in Auckland city. This beautiful arcade is going through a facelift and any one who loves vintage will be in awe of this fabulous heritage space. It also gives you the chance to play dress-ups in real life which is always a pleasure... nothing beats getting your hands on the fabric, especially those amazing velvet dresses!
