As promised, we've begun posting our new Putumayo stock to the web site! And we've got a couple of other items too.
In the latest batch:
Angelic Pretty Polka Dot Grosgrain Wristcuffs - $40
These wrist cuffs were created to coordinate with the Fantasic Dolly series, but they could really be used for a variety of sweet outfits. They feature a polka dot ribbon centered by a cute charm. The lace is ribbon lace with the AP logo embroidered in as well.
Lace: Tull lace
Ribbon: Grosgrain ribbon
Trump Watch Necklace - $30
This necklace invokes Alice in Wonderland without being too obvious about it, featuring the trump suits at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions on a simulated watch face. The necklace overall has a handmade look to it, like it's been molded into shape without the benefit of precision machinery. Note that this is not a real working watch - it just looks like one. It is lighter and thinner than a real working watch. If you do want to wear a working watch around your neck, check out Putumayo's Two-way Pocket Watches.
Chain length: approximately 30" (adjustable)
Check Frill Collar Dress - $165
This is a cute and versatile dress that's the basis for a perfect punk Lolita outfit. The traditional plaid pattern of the skirt is complemented by the black top, with plaid buttons that match the skirt portion. The waist is low. The back is fully shirred for maximum comfort and size adjustment.
Best of all, this dress comes with a removable collar and separate necktie (with an original print on one side), either or both of which can be worn or removed from the outfit. When not worn, the dress is a basic black and tartan dress that can be used for almost any occasion. But the addition of the collar and tie really put the dress over the top, and are recommended if you really want the full effect.
This dress is stocked in both red and grey.
Material: 100% cotton
Length: 84cm (33")
Bust: 80cm (~31.5")
Ribbon length: 148cm (58.2")
Ribbon width: 10cm (3.9")
Check Ribbon Katyusha - $45
This is the matching headbow for the Check Frill Collar Dress, as seen in the photo with model Neeko to the right. It could also be worn with a similar coordinating tartan outfit. Like the necktie that comes with the dress, it features a cat and butterfly original print peppered throughout. These headbows are quite large - see the measurements below.
Length: 31cm (12.2")
Width: 12.5cm (4.9")
Lace Petticoat Skirt - $139
This is part skirt, part petticoat and part underskirt. It can be used in almost any capacity. It is decorated with two layers of rose lace (one around the hip, one around the hem) and features an elastic waist for maximum comfort and size adjustment. Its lace decoration is perfect for creating that peekaboo look of an underskirt being visible below the hem of a dress or skirt.
Material: 100% cotton
Length: 48cm (18.9")
Waist: 64-90cm (25.2"-35.4")
Marching Band Puff Sleeve cutsew - $85
Like many of Putumayo's items, this is a shirt that can be worn several different ways. It includes a removable ribbon and collar along with removable long sleeves (which can be worn as wristlets). It can be worn as its own top, or underneath a jumper skirt (taking the place of a blouse). The print features a cute "marching band" comprised of a cat and a rabbit.
Material: 100% cotton
