Carry On Behind

bus stop, carry on films, dollyrockers, Gina Fratini, hardy amies, lee bender, ossie clark, ritva

This is mainly a post about new listings, but I’m very behind in everything at the moment so the phrase ‘Carry On Behind’ keeps popping into my head. I caught the second half of that film a few weeks back and, as with most British films of that era, it right proper cheered me up. If I was going to have to live through an era of gloomy economics, I’d much rather have lived through the Seventies…

I’m also wondering whether there’s a gap in the heaving burlesque market for a naff Seventies stripper type? There are so many Bettie Page wannabes, and even a few Sixties-style go-go girls, but I would personally love to see some jiggling in nylon ruffles and bubble perms going on.

Anyway, there aren’t too many nylon ruffles and sequins in my latest batch of listings. But that’s because there are some seriously scrumptious moss crepe, satin, velvet and jersey goodies. Ossie Clark (twice! I’m too good to you….), Gina Fratini, Dollyrockers, Ritva, Lee Bender for Bus Stop, Hardy Amies and some beautiful unlabelled pieces as well. I hope you see something which tickles your fancy, and I’ll work on the whole nylon ruffles thing in the meantime….

  1. Carry On Behind is one of the best! I've got that Dollyrockers number in royal blue and purple, isn't the fabric odd? Lovely things, as always. I'd love to pop round just to stroke them. xxx

  2. COB – is possibly my fave of the series,Elke Sommer does a great turn in it. Funnily enough I've been on a buzz for seventies TOTP albums this week, which feature some fab seventies fashions on the coversPS we had a run-out on one blog regarding new burlesque names a while back. Minnie De Ville was the one we came up with
