Dames & Divas House of Balaklava Month!

We popped in to House of Balaklava on Friday and were absolutely blown away by the gorgeous merchandising that Lisa & Jacqui of (House of Balaklava) have created for Dames & Divas month.

The front window houses one of our favourite children’s vintage silk kimonos purchased on our recent trip to Japan alongside some of our latest range of vintage silk kimono shoes.

Inside the front door a beautifully presented mannequin adorned with a stunning orange vintage silk kimono and a gorgeous shrine of light boxes along the side board displaying more Dames & Divas vintage silk kimono shoes.

The whole store is treasure trove of Dames & Divas finds - vintage silk kimono rings, vintage silk kimono bangles, vintage silk kimono earrings etc and we are so excited and proud to be working with House of Balaklava for Dames & Divas Month!
