New dresses by Stop Staring! and Pin Up Couture

Introducing some instant faux vintage classics and some old favourites from the best pin up and reproduction vintage clothing companies!

From Stop Staring! we'd like to introduce the timeless and sassy Obsession dress in delicious red. We've also brought back your favourites in the Billion Dollar Baby, Flora and Lula Dresses. Stop Staring! are famous for their attention to vintage style detailing and their commitment to helping everyone achieve an hourglass shape!
Prices start from £135.

From the collections brougt to you by Pin Up Couture we have the Sweetiepie dresses by Dixiefried. Shown here in cool clean navy and white (it is also available in black gingham or pink gingham,) it's a wardrobe staple great for any occasion. From Deadly Dames we're so excited about the babydoll dress - the perfect balance between bad girl and 50's dolly. We have more Dixiefried with the timeless Madison Avenue, clearly influenced by Mad Men and the Niagara Dress, a reproduction of the dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in the Femme Fatale movie of the same name!
Prices start from just £85

Vivienne Westwood Shoes

The perfect complements to these stunning dresses are the new Vivienne Westwood shoes from Melissa. These are so easy to wear - they mould to your feet, they wipe clean AND are serious eye and nose candy! The bubblegum scent of these shoes is as delicious as it is surprising!

We had the Ultragirl Bow Flats in before and loved them so much we now have them in soft pearlescent gold with lace effect bow and translucent brown with leopard bow - adorable! And if they aren't darling enough then how about the Ladydragon Cherry heels - they look good enough to eat and are a real must have! Prices start from £70.

Also new in are these fabulous rubber Brogues by Melissa in collaboration with Brazilian Fashion Designer Alexandre Herchcovitch. A fabulous mixture of classic and modern and only £60!

Hours of fun at the Besame Cosmetics Launch

Saturday the 14th of August was a day full of fun and giggles at Deadly is the Female. The shop was crammed with even more glamour than usual with the utterly fabulous Lolita Noir giving mini makeovers using the faux vintage Besame cosmetics, 4 delicious models graced our windows and there were piles of cake and drinkies dotted around the shop!

Blon D. Deadly, Mz Deadly, Genevieve Lvov and Lily Belle posed their little hearts out in the window, taking great enjoyment in startling unsuspecting passers by!

Blon D. Deadly channelled her inner Doris Day in the Sweetiepie dress in pink Gingham.

Mz. Deadly brought a touch of class to the windows in the Red Courtney Jacket and black Pin Up Pencil Skirt.

Genevieve Lvov rocked out in the Babydoll Dress with a little added oo la la with a white petticoat and the drop dead delicious Cherry shoes by Vivienne Westwood.

Lily Belle worked it as only a Burlesque performer can and shimmied away in the Flora dress by Stop Staring!

Lolita Noir was on hand all day providing vintage make up tips and helping people decide which colours and products work best for them. She also did the hair and make up for the models.

GoGo Gomez provided security for the event...!!

All in all a glamourous day was had by everyone on a wet 'summer' afternoon! We'd like to say a giant thank you to Ed Thomas from Doubleshot for taking these wonderful photos. In fact we love them so much, here are a few more...
