‘Hummingbird’ by Kitten D’Amour 

Below is a snippet taken from Kitten D’Amour:

The story behind the beautiful ‘Hummingbird’ print as told by Alana (designer of all things Kitten)! …….We were very fortunate to have come across this fabric in a Parisian flea market ..a long time ago ( when I used to go on holidays 😬😬). The Brocante dealer had just been commissioned to sell many items from a beautiful 75 room Cheateau just outside of Normandy. ..The Chateau dated back from the 1700’s…

He found many gorgeous fabrics that were still rolled up and unused in their original state on the very top floor of the chateau. Not to mention many gorgeous Wallpapers that were also in there original wrapping paper.

One of those fabrics was the Hummingbird floral design that we have carefully replicated and bought back to life for our Hummingbird collection.

The original fabric itself dates back to the late 1800’s. 

A picture of the original fabric from the Chateau is attached below..

Who would have thought that this gorgeous design that sat unwanted and unused in a French Chateau for hundreds of years, covered in 18th century dust would finally make her grand debut on Thursday at Kitten D’Amour!

Mutiny has Arrived 

Had to take a day off work for medical appointments and I arrived home after the first appointment to find my Kitten package had arrived. Huge thank you to the lovely kittens at Chatswood who assisted me with sizing!! Totally stoked. Love my new items 😍​

Vintage Glam

Spring weather was perfect for ‘Memoirs of a Kitten’ and ‘Aye Aye’ to have an outing to s friend’s little one’s birthday party.​​

​Always fun to play with different lipsticks. Feeling very vampy! 

Mutiny by Kitten D’amour 

The first day of Spring and Kitten D’amour have released their latest collection. So beautiful. These pieces are on their way to my home.. not because I needed more pretty clothes.. but seriously, how can one say no to this collection? It’s stunning! Looking forward to my parcels arriving!!! Hurry up postman!

TGIF

I’m grateful that it’s Friday. I’m looking forward to a big sleep in.a weekend to reenergise my flat batteries.You know you’re pale when the makeup artist who is helping you match your skin tone to foundation announces your shade as…… translucent! That’s right, I don’t have a tone.. I’m see-through.

I’m grateful for warm, snuggley, poncho jackets.. it kept the chill away and looks fabulous (even if I say so myself). I’m also grateful to be awake… it sounds silly but when you’ve struggled to be awake, to go to work, to eat, to breathe through pain.. you begin to appreciate the smallest things in life. Tonight for the first time in eight days I have minimal pain in my gut which means I’m not beyond exhausted (just tired). Yay! On the mend. 

Bossa Nova 

Today I arrived home to a gift I gave myself. I finally tracked down a Bossa Nova dress in a size that fits my bust (ah girl problems!). I really love the personal touch that Kitten D’amour add to their packaging – hand written note.. gift wrapping..stickers.. ribbon.. it’s perfect. Yay! I can’t believe that this little unicorn has found her forever home.
