Come Raid Style Icons Closet!
When women think of vintage, they imagine old Hollywood glamor or June Cleaver from “Leave It To Beaver.” If that is the case then Style Icons Closet is the closet to raid.
Style Icons Closet is owned and operated by two British sisters who call themselves, Sisi and Mimi. They pride themselves in their simple and quaint collections of handmade goodies. Sisi and Mimi sew everything themselves, creating what they enjoy most about vintage fashion and how they personally envision it.
Style Icons Closet can be compared to a pastel cupcake shop for hungry pin-up fashionistas. A bakery for vintage fashion in the United Kingdom, displaying a large window that is filled with cotton candy colored hues, sugary polka dots and even some samples of a more exotic taste.
It seems that Sisi and Mimi have devoted their time to making Style Icons Closet a polka dot, floral and lace boutique. Their diverse taste in tribal prints though is what really causes their online shop to stand out. Creating old fashion inspired pin up pieces, with bold African tribal prints, makes their small collection pop. Very unique and eccentric, yet this online store keeps the daring yellows, greens and black prints as sweet as their other cupcake colored goodies.
Keeping their designs classic, this online shop is the home to the ever famous pencil dresses, fun party dresses and sexy little black dresses for a night filled with cocktails. As mentioned earlier, Sisi and Mimi create everything by hand. Filling their shop with designs from the heart, every stitch is a thread of pure undying passion for vintage and pin-up fashion. They make dresses for the customer, asking for measurements to create a perfectly tailored piece of pinup artwork.
Customers have the option of choosing their own fabrics and measurements, while Sisi and Mimi offer high quality customer service. They offer, not only dresses, but tops, skirts, petticoats and jackets.
If a pin up girl is looking for the classic stylings of a 1940 and 1950′s fashion icon, Style Icons Closet is the obvious choice. Never dull, always adorable and fabulous!
