Hello shiny new blog!

 Why hello shiny new blog =)
I'll be using this for updates on Cyanide Kiss, a new venture, a clothing company inspired by retro, 50's and lolita styles! Well, here goes my first post!!
  We've been pretty busy here at Cyanide Kiss getting together our first collection, and finally gotten round to starting to promote it recently on .facebook , twitter and etsy !! Get us bookmarked/liked for updates!! So, what's been happening at Cyanide Kiss??

 Last week, I was contacted by the lovely Rebecca, owner of events planning company Polka Dots and Pearls a company set up by newly wed with a love for all things retro! She was planning a pin up and rock the frock style photoshoot and asked it Cyanide Kiss would like to be involved. I loved the sounds of the shoot, and we met up with Nomnom photography to shoot some dresses. Starting out with her own wedding dress and a bridesmaid dress, and finishing with some of my designs. 
Here's one of her bridesmaids dresses:


And a gorgeous shot of a fifties style wedding dress:


  Polka Dots and Pearls is a really great concept, they can arrange anything from VW camper vans to vintage cakes, everything to give your wedding that vintage inspired theme! She also offers pin up style photoshoots, engagement shoots and 'trash/rock the dress' shoots, candy buffets, photobooth prop hire and vintage style tea parties!! What more could any vintage style wedding need! =)  
   
    With vintage style weddings are getting ever more popular with blogs such as rock n roll bride and offbeat bride providing some real interesting alternatives to the traditional meringue dress and church wedding, what better time to check out what she has to offer for your own wedding. 
 I really enjoyed the shoot, and we got some really great results. It was nice to get some shots of the dresses and to meet Polka Dots and Pearls and NomNom photography !
And finally, to finish the post, here's one of the shots of my dresses taken in NomNom's studio, which you can see up for sale on Cyanide Kiss's Etsy page
