It has been almost four and a half years since I started my little brand, Miss Happ, I have gone through it all. The frustration of people not understanding what I am about, to CMT's and seamstresses letting me down terribly. I have had to tackle fit problems, and glue problems, our offices being broken into and all my computer equipment stolen. The stress of juggling not only my clothing brand but also lecturing part-time and having to do graphic design work to pay for my little dream which is Miss Happ. At the end of it all I am proud to say that I am a self-funded, one woman many people can say that?!

New Retro inspired handbags by Miss Happ

a while ago I mentioned that I was working on some new bag designs for Miss they are!
All our fab ladies hand bags are lined in funky contrast fabrics and have a little contrast cell phone pouch. The handles are cute tiki inspired bamboo handles AND each bag has detachable bow brooch that can also be worn on your cardigan or jacket for that little unique touch. This little bag is the perfect way to finish off your rockin' outfit for a night out with the girls and will sure turn heads!
I used a selection of cute print for the outside from cherries and strawberries to retro inspired hotrod prints and the classic leopard print fur! We have 4 basic styles and shapes.
All our hand bags are available from both myEtsy Store and my local online store, Khayali.
I hope you like!

Till next time! Mx

Pinup 101 Workshop NEW dates for MAY 2012

Wanting to know how to achieve that Rockabilly and Pin-Up look, but have no idea where to start? Then sign yourself up for ‘Pin-up 101 BASICS’ Our first Pinup 101 Workshop on the 31st of Marchc was a great success, with our first class being full up - 16 ladies in total attended which was exciting for everybody. This time round we have decided to run the same class, but split it into two smaller groups of 12 ladies in each - this way we can give each lady that extra special attention that she needs! Girls are always asking us “how do you get the look?” Well, now’s your chance to discover all the tips and tricks from girls in the know! Bring your girlfriends, let your hair down (or tie it up in a bandana) and join the gals from AnonaMiss Beauty Emporium, Miss Happ and Sailor Jerry, while we show you easy step-by-step techniques for creating that basic pin-up look. From the perfect eyeliner application to how to wear those damn bandanas! The cherry on top will be a cocktail hour with Sailor…
