Bristol's Badass Burlesque Show
CoochieCrunch.com Presents the first part of a Seasonal Gift Guide featuring our favourite independent retailers. Put your money where your house is and shop local and independent this December!
Deadly is the Female is a faux vintage boutique and web store specialising in old fashioned Hollywood glamour. This shop is passionate about celebrating curves and femininity from head to toe.
Deadly is the Female are stockists of some of the best pin up and faux vintage brands including Stop Staring! Pinup Couture, Bernie Dexter, Bettie Page and What Katie Did. Dresses are the house speciality with everything from Jessica Rabbit-esque wiggle dresses to full 50’s style swing dresses with the petticoats to match.
The focus is on helping women with boobs and bottoms find dresses when the high street fashion is generally cut to hide or just plain ignore curves. If you don’t have a naturally curvy figure or are top or bottom heavy, many of the dresses will help create an hourglass shape.
It’s not just dresses though, Deadly aims to be a one stop shop so you can just pop in for a vintage shade of red lipstick or get your whole outfit from head to toe. You’ll also find gorgeous shoes by Vivienne Westwood for Melissa and swimwear designed by Esther Williams, the swimmer and movie star from the 40s and 50s.
Christmas and New Year are the perfect excuses to unleash your inner glamour vixen and Deadly is the Female has lots of dresses perfect for the Party season. Here are some of our Favourites:
Nude pink wiggle dress with black lace print – perfect for when you want to feel like Marilyn, pair with a faux fur stole and killer heels to ensure you knock ‘em dead.
Whether you’ve been naughty or nice these Skyscraper heels are just the treat you deserve. The classic shape elongates your leg, the ruby red glitter makes a statement and if that wasn’t enough, these fabulous shoes smell just like bubblegum!
Take a walk on the wild side with this rockabilly bag! It is just the right size to take you from day to evening and comes with 2 straps and some Vegas dice style key charms.
The Tempest dress is a 50’s style swing dress which can be worn with or without a petticoat (we vote with – it is SO much fun!). This darling dress could have stepped straight from the set of a Hollywood classic and will ensure you feel a million dollars!
All this and oh-so much more is available online at www.DeadlyistheFemale.com or in our Frome boutique at 59 Catherine St. Frome. Somerset BA11 1DA, open Tuesday – Saturday.
