This news is probably more exciting for me than anyone else, but some of my favorite Australian brands are starting to pop up in US stores and my bank account is very, VERY thankful. The two brands I'm specifically talking about are Gooseberry Intimates and Tiger Mist. Oh, and both of them are at Dollskill.com (aaaaaaaaayyyyyymen).
Lets start with Tiger Mist. Tiger Mist is the second (Australian) label created by the dream sister team: Stevie and Alana Pallister. The sisters started off with the creation of their retail boutique "Tiger Mist" in 2007. A few years later they launched "Rise of Dawn", a clothing line named after their mom (the female bond is strong with these ones). "Tiger Mist" the clothing label was developed just last October, but it's already building a rapid fan base. Pistol hot shorts and fuzzy 90s crop tops have made Tiger Mist the label a cult label already, giving it the momentum to travel all the way to Foggy SF where Dolls Kill headquarters resides.
You can shop the label at Dolls Kill here or check out the TigerMist boutique for more variety, like the outfits below, here . (US followers be-warned… the shipping fees are painfully real). If you visit the online boutique, you'll also notice that the Pallister sisters absolutely adore the mega babe Sahara Ray, who recently launched her own swim line! More on that later…
Now, for Gooseberry Intimates…
Gooseberry Intimates has been a brand that I've been a fan of for awhile now. Their bra's and teddies are mesmerizing dreamy pieces made of delicate lace that I just can't get enough of. A few months ago I gave in to the shipping and went ahead and ordered the Shine Demi bra in black (below). Not only is this one of my most delicate bras, it's also my most comfortable. I wear mine with everything from tshirts to my going out dresses, and it's especially perfect with dresses and tanks that have larger arm holes (or backless) that are made for showing off pretty little bras underneath. There's just something about lace…
Dolls Kill has a limited selection of Gooseberry's flawless pieces that you can now shop here , and since most of the items are in the $60 range, you can add something small to your cart and score some free shipping.
To shop the entire line (there are A LOT of stunning lace items), including the Edgy Ivory set pictured below, click here.
Hopefully more varieties from both labels will become available as the year goes on, but right now it's time to celebrate the opportunity to shop some prime australian brands without the out-of-this-world shipping charges.
