As some of you who have been following us may remember, Angelic Pretty was actually the first brand we ever met with. We were offered a contract and we announced them as a new brand about six months ago. And so began an on-again, off-again relationship that led us to finally just shelve the whole thing a while back. But things in this world do change. And things have changed. So, welcome back, Angelic Pretty!
A selection of cuteness from Angelic Pretty is now in stock in our store. We'll be adding items to our web site over the next several days.
You can probably understand why we wanted to wait to announce the brand name until we actually had some clothes to sell. Sorry for not doing a group order ahead of time, but it wouldn't have made sense for obvious reasons. We'll let you know the next time we're about to order from them.
Ok, so what do we have, and what does this mean for the future?
The current stock includes blouses, wallets, handbags, totes, parasols, hair bows, and a decent selection of socks. Most of it is non-series specific, so you can wear it with anything. We did this on purpose.
Here's the deal: Angelic Pretty does not keep a large stock of clothes for retailers to pick and choose from. They produce enough of their most popular prints to satisfy initial orders and that's pretty much it. (This is common in the industry.) We were able to get one each skirt and jumper skirt in pink only for the Star Night Theater series. All of the pink accessories, however, are sold out. We didn't think it was worth getting a lot of other series accessories and socks if you can't get the skirt or jsk with it, though, so those are the only series items we got.
However! We do now have access to their reserve items in the future. And we will be carrying them. The first series that we will have - already ordered! - will be Dream Doll House. We will carry this series in pink and black (two separate colorways) only. Future series we may carry in other colors depending on demand. We can't take actual reserve orders for Angelic Pretty (like we can for certain other brands), but if there's interest, we can probably come up with some way for you to order particular colors and then only pay once we've verified that we can get what you want. We'll see what happens! Start thinking about their next collection too!
Anyway, we're very excited to finally have Angelic Pretty in our store, and we hope and fully expect that this will now be a long and fruitful relationship.
UPDATE: You can now visit our Angelic Pretty collection page as we add new products. We're using placeholder images for the main image right now, but we'll take photos of these items shortly. We just want to post them as soon as possible.
