Two Bit Villian opening party.

A new Rockabilly shop opened last night with Sass and Liam cutting the ribbon and announcing the shop was open for business. You couldn't meet a nicer couple, they have worked so hard getting the shop ready and the turn out last night was spectacular. They have so much stock and are particularly interested in stocking Australian labels which pleases us here at Hot Couture no end. So as well as Hot Couture there are other wonderful labels like Peta Pledger, Miss Hussy and Susie Homemaker. If your into decorating there are loads of pillows made by Sophia Hopgood and Ginger Taylor (Day of the Bed). Jewellery and bows and trinkets by Hana Breckeni and Caz rice these are just a few. So if your looking for gifts, LP's, or clothing that is hot and a great price then head on down to Adelaide Arcade right off Rundle Mall. Sass and Liam even have a fridge full of soda so you can hang out with them. Good Luck guys we think you rock.

Silly Willy

We had such a funny day today in Hot Couture Land. If you don't know already William Lazootin is working with us, he makes me laugh so hard. Today he came in and threw his coat and scarf on the desk and I immediately knew he was pretending to be Anne Hathaway from "The Devil Wears Prada." It took me a while and then I yelled out "Your Meryl NOT Anne. Duh! We fell about and our day pretty much went downhill from there. I just couldn't concentrate, first of all Willy was doing some Russian Polka to The Squirrel Nut Zipppers and then he was doing the Charleston and telling me he should have on his spats. Of course he owns a pair of spats just for dancing, why wouldn't you.
Next he called me an ARMHOLE because his pattern wouldn't fit, like it was my fault. As usual we ate wayyyyyy too much at lunch and it was even harder to get into it when we got back. I managed to completely sew a garment back to front inside out roundabout. Who can sew under these conditions it's like working with a gay Joan Rivers. Somehow Willy managed to do his job but I just could not get my head around stuff today. I love that when he made Tania Poropat's velvet coat he decided because she was such a  good customer he was going to add a bow to the inside and a place for her glasses. One thing about Hot Couture it is always made with love. I haven't had much of a chance to write the blog lately as we are madly getting everything organised for our new website. We have some fabulous new things going on it, just have to make them all for the shoot. I have said it a million times so one more time won't matter. DO WHAT YOU LOVE and the rest will fall into place. I love every day at Hot Couture, I love all the people who work with me and I don't want to be doing anything else EVER. XXX Joy
