Meet Domesticated Youth

How to style our Glitter Cactus Tee

This year we started a new series of blog posts called Meet….. we LOVE discovering new gals with awesome style and can find ourselves lost for hours in an Instagram spiral of badass babes with pastel hair and glittery clothes (come on we’ve all done it!) So we thought why not make use of our time and get to know them a bit better!

Our very first was a few months ago where we got to know a little more about our Spring 17 model Jess Ayton aka Foxxtailz if you haven’t read that post already, where have you been! Check it out here. Disclaimer, you will get serious hair envy!

This time we got chatting to the lovely Katie-Jo Watson aka Domesticated Youth about her style, shopping habits and a typical day for her.

How would you describe your style?

Like the front window of a charity shop; lots of old patterns and funky colours.

What’s your typical day like?

I wish I had a typical day! I usually love to get up early and head down to a lil café to do some sketching or writing, if I have some spare time. Once it starts to get dark, I love to settle down with my laptop and maybe start a new series on Netflix.

What was the last thing you bought?

Some handmade flamingo earrings… I recently took a spontaneous trip to Edinburgh and ended up spending my time wondering around little vintage shops until I came across the coolest earrings ever.  

Do you have a favourite band/musician?

It depends on the season! As summer is just around the corner, Tame Impala is totally my summer soundtrack… but if I’m feeling a lil bit more chilled then Mac Demarco is definitely my favourite musician.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to draw, I often find myself designing tattoo ideas which I know I’ll never be brave enough to actually get done.

If you could eat only one thing what would it be?

Raspberries, and everything raspberry flavoured. They’re just the best thing ever.

Tell us 3 things on your ‘Bucket List’?

My bucket list consists of places I want to visit. Number 1 is Glastonbury Festival, I can’t wait for the chance to go. Number 2 is Vietnam… it just looks so beautiful. And number 3 is America, mostly New York, I can’t wait to be able to visit.

We would love to know why you chose these pieces from our site?

The first piece I choose was the Glitter Cactus Tee, and omg it’s the cutest t-shirt ever. It’s so easy to style and goes with anything, I think the cactus really adds a cute element to your outfit.

The second item is the Pastel Unicorn Sweater… how beautiful! Nothing says you’re ready for summer more than pastel colours. I like to tuck mine into a skirt to dress it up, or over wear it over a pair of black skinny jeans if I’m feeling cosy.

Gingham Twin Set

It’s no secret that the Tallulah’s Threads gang love Gingham and it’s just as well, as it is so hot this season! Our fave at the moment is our Leanne Twin Set, it is a simple sleeveless crop top, skirt with pockets with a little added embroidery cuteness. It can be worn together teamed with a Leather Jacket or separately with the colour of your choice. We would go for pastel 😉 Now all we need is the sun!

We have loads more gingham gems on the way this summer, think more twin sets in and pink and blue with cute twists, but for now shop here

Meet Our Model

Just before our Spring 17 Look Book goes live, we thought we should get to know our model Jess a bit better! This is the second time Jess has modelled for Tallulah’s Threads and as well as appreciating her embarking on such a long train journey to get to us, we Loved spending the day with her.

We thought we would ask Jess a few quick questions, so you could get to know her too!

How would you describe your style?
Kawaii Punxx with a grunge edge or try to at least try to haha.

What was the last thing you bought?

OMG the most gorgeous coat with metal hardware from Zara. It’s such a babe of a coat.

Favourite band/musician?

Hands down Paramore, always and forever. I have a huge girl crush on Hayley Williams, she gives me a lot of style inspiration.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I’ve always got my head in a book haha. That or I’m creating something for my blog. Shooting videos or taking my Cannon out for a spin.

Favourite food?

Pizza, didn’t even need to think about that one 😉

What are 3 things that on your ‘Bucket List’?

I really want to visit the fox Island in Japan, to run the London Marathon and to live out a year in Harajuku.

What are your favourite 4 pieces from our Spring 17 collection?

Oh this one is hard!
Defiantly the Jessica Girl gang ruffle sweater, I fell in love with that as soon as I saw it.
The Lizzie Grey Tartan Dress.
Hope Floral Buffalo skull T-shirt, I absolutly adore the buffalo patch.
And the Lara pastel tartan shirt dress, I’m a sucker for a peter pan collar.

Summer Dresses and Pastel Houses

A few weeks ago we set our new intern Laura a little task, it was to arrange a small photo shoot with some of our Spring and Summer Dresses, (we want our interns to have fun) Laura had total control on the items and location of the shoot. We are so happy with the images produced and asked her why she picked the pieces she did and why she chose these amaaazing pastel houses as the backdrop.

“Summer is all about colorfulness and enjoyable days out, the bright clothing and cool prints from the Tallulah’s Threads Spring/Summer collections really express this. With this shoot I really wanted to have some fun and bring all those vibes in. Hanover in Brighton is the perfect place to showcase this, Brighton is such a fun-loving city and also where the brand started.” – Laura James

All dresses available on our site in various sizes. All hand made to order in our Brighton studio.

(pssst two of them are in our summer sale)

Skater Girl

Last week we hung out with our fave blogger Iva Moutelikova at a park local to her in Brighton. We brought a few pieces from our Summer 16 collection along with us and got snapping away as she chilled out and showed off her skater girl skills. The weather held out for us which was a stroke of luck in the middle of a miserable and wet week on the south coast, and Iva finally got to wear her Flamingo Twin Set.

Iva has already picked the Flamingo Twin Set as one of her fave pieces from our recent collections. She loves the print and the colours compliment her skin tone and ever changing bright hair perfectly. We’re sure she will continue to wear this set once the English weather brightens up or on her travels this summer. Be sure to follow her blog Eiva Poppins to keep up with her travel and style posts.

New in this week is this Blue Flamingo Two-piece. We currently have a sleeveless dress with this fabric which is one of our best sellers, so we thought why not do a co-ord version too! The fabric is so bright and bold and really seems to look great in the sun.

Who’s wearing Tallulah’s Threads

Unicorn Dress

We absolutely LOVE seeing pics of you all wearing Tallulah’s Threads pieces, the individual style we see in outfits inspires us everyday to keep designing fun, glittery clothing for girls like us in the studio! From glittery Unicorns to all over quirky prints we aim to get you a compliment or two when you wear one of our dresses. And what girl doesn’t love a good print?

Here are just a few images of our blogger pals wearing their fave pieces from our website. And don’t forget to tag us in any posts on social media, as we love to feature them 🙂

Flamingo Fever

Flamingo

You can always count on seeing a Flamingo or two during the summer months. There is something about this pink, slender creature that seems to work so well on clothing and in prints and conjures up feelings of tropical paradises and long sandy beaches that we love so much. Therefore, its only fitting that we include a Flamingo print in our Summer 16 collection!

Our fave is the Palm Springs Tropical Skater Dress below, as its in a flattering shape with a super sweet, glittery motif of a tropical scene. It’s not too overpowering and has a fun and flirty hint. Perfect for festivals!

Silver Dress & This Weeks Style Crush

Ciara wearing our Silver Dress

The lovely Ciara from Fresh Pony is our latest style crush and she has featured our Silver Dress in her latest blog post and we just love how she has styled it. Our Silver Dress is in the classic smock shape and is from our Party collection last year but proved so popular we continued to produce it for one of our stockists.

Ciara’s style is simply perfect!. She often styles up pretty, floaty dresses and bold prints in pastel and soft colours (to match her hair) with one or two key accessories to keep her outfit clean, fresh and to the point. If you haven’t  come across Ciara before, head on over to her blog and have a nose!

We think our Silver Dress will also look great with Leather and chunky boots for an evening out in the festive season.

Our Silver Dress will be back this festive season and will be available to buy next week with the rest of our Party Collection.
