This little baby right here........isn't she just darling???? What's that I hear you say???............she looks very familiar??? Well you'd be absolutely right if you said she looks a little similar to ME!! This little poppet is the beautiful character I had created by the super talented Miss Cherry Martini to be the face of my brand MISS KISS VINTAGE.
And what is Miss Kiss Vintage?? Well the answer to that is growing and changing every day, but right now, Miss Kiss Vintage is an accessories label. We also have offshoots in Cosmetics and Haircare, but I'll start where it all began.....with accessories.
The first ever product to be launched as Miss Kiss Vintage, was our 'Bow-tique'; handmade bow's in an array of different fabric's that can be used to accessorise your hair, pretty up a plain dress, clip on to your shoes to complete an outfit, I've even had gentleman purchase them to wear as fun, festive bow-tie's!!!
The next addition to our collection was our 'Bloom-tique'........clip on accessories, just like the Bow's, but of a floral nature!! whether it be perfect traditional roses, pretty peonies, tropical calla lilly's or a day of the dead flower crown you are after, we have you covered at MKV.......everything is hand made with a sprinkle of love, so you will often find 'one-off's' in our collection....our pieces are as individual as you!!
After the addition of 'Bloom-tique' came my personal favourite.....'Bake-tique'!!! My personal love of baking inspired this collection. Baking is a very messy business, and why shouldn't we look our best while doing what we love?? I hunted down some vintage replica paper patterns from the 40's and 50's and got to work, creating the cutest kitchen accessory sets, including aprons, oven gloves and matching, reversible hair wraps, so that even during the messiest of jobs, one can still look SUPER CUTE!! All 'Bake-tique' accessories are designed and hand made by me, giving me the opportunity to practice on of my other loves.....sewing!!
This brand is something that has just organically grown legs of its own, through hobbies of mine. I have always been more inclined to hand create my own hair accessories, rather than buy them, and after many lovely complements on things I had created just for myself, I decided to create more to sell to others who appreciate hand crafted treasures.
One thing lead to another as it generally does, and eventually, through Miss Kiss Vintage, I have been lucky enough to launch my own line of cosmetics and most recently a line of styling products, that are handmade by me using 100% all natural ingredients!!! Introducing GREASER, and ROCKSTAR........a slick pomade and a messy matte clay to help you create the most individual do for you!!
So that was the long answer..........the short answer is.........ME!!
Miss Kiss Vintage.............quite simply.........is ME!!!!! Another part of the Jessi Leigh puzzle, and another peek into my personal life.
All my MKV products are available for purchase at any of the festivals I trade at, which are always listed in my Gig Guide, and from my brand new Etsy store launching this month........check back for details!!!!!
