Welcome (again!) to Betty Le Bonbon: the Blog!
A year after first releasing accessories, and six months after phasing out accessories in favour of focussing on garments, I’ve finally decided it was time to start blogging. With regular, written content rather than just pretty images (coughtumblrcough).
Plus I enjoy interacting with other people, whether they’re also small businesses, other bloggers, customers, potential customers, potential friends! If you’re a blogger, a reader, a small business, a customer … we’ll be welcoming guest posts in future, so if you’ve got something to say inline with what you see here, please feel free to pitch it!
If you’ve found your way here, it’s unlikely you need an introduction to Betty Le Bonbon, but just in case you do …
Hello! I’m Jasmine, and I created Betty Le Bonbon Cheek Boutique. No, there’s no Betty here. Sorry. I guess it sounds like a misnomer. Betty Le Bonbon was originally my burlesque performance name and I liked it enough to carry it through to my business.
At Betty Le Bonbon, we’ve spent the last six months creating custom swing and circle
Hello! I’m Jasmine, and I really like polka dots!
skirts in a variety of beautiful, kitschy, cute and colourful fabrics. We’ve done our best to provide a range of sizes, and a range of fabrics to suit everyone. We have created a range of basic cotton sateen circle skirts that we intend to regularly restock in different colours and sizes – and when it comes to sizing, we pride ourselves on being willing to create a genuinely large range of plus sizes, not just stopping at 2XL. If your size isn’t available in the shop, simply contact us and we’ll see what we can do about getting your size in.
And before I start promoting the business end of things too heavily, let me just say upfront that this blog will not just be an extension of our advertising and marketing campaigns! While naturally we’ll keep you up to date on Betty Le Bonbon sales, new products and plans at HQ, I also hope to regularly provide outfit shots of myself and other customers so you can see how we’re styling our clothes – and clothes by other brands. There will be spotlights on other small businesses, interviews with our favourite pinup styling bloggers, blog roundups, tutorials for hair and makeup, and general reflections on pinup and vintage styling.
REALLY like polka dots.
I like to think of myself and the Betty Le Bonbon team as being fairly approachable, so please feel free to comment with your thoughts or even input on what you’d like to see here (or volunteer for one of our style interviews or to guest blog or just to let me know you have a business I should check out!), and if you’re shy you’re welcome to simply email and say hello!
