Be Bold

Purple Irish Dress It's time to leave behind the drab colors of winter and break out with the bold colors that gleam in the sunlight! Bring out the bold colors, shiny jewelry, and flashy fashion. Wear bold jewelry like this brass tone Afghan Belt (IND3011) with red glass stones and pressed coins. These belts are on clearance now for only $39.96! Boldly wear a royal purple Irish Dress (CHI1055) over a white Italian Chemise (CHI1040). That's like putting corned beef on a pizza, but, hey, why not? The Italian Chemise is now available in black as well.

Color Changing T-shirts

Baby Dragon Pirate Griffin & Dragon Fairy Pirate-in-training

These bold new T-shirts from Ultra-Cool Ultra Violet change color when exposed to sunlight or other ultraviolet light sources! Then, like magic, they change back again when you move away from the light. They can be washed and dried over and over without damaging the effect (but you can't use bleach). Click on the pictures above to see them change colors. These shirts come in Adult sizes M-3X or baby sizes 18 month and 2 toddler. The Pirate (UCV10003) is on a black shirt, the Dragon and Griffin Battle (UCV10004) is on a natural shirt, and the Fairy (UCV10005) is printed on white to show off all the luscious color. The Baby Dragon and the Pirate-in-Training Baby shirt (UCV10001) are printed on white and come in baby sizes only.

Going Green for Spring

As the rays of the sun warm the land, all that was dull and brown turns to green. Celebrate Spring with shades of green ranging from light moss to deep forest green combined with floral shades.
Pick up on the subtle greens in this Tapestry Barmaid's Bodice (CHI1062) by combining it with an olive green Peasant Skirt (CHI1033) and a naughty little black Sweetheart Chemise (CHI1011).

Have fun with underclothing. Wear a Renaissance Corset on the outside.(CHI1042) with a pair of moss green Bloomers (CHI1061), a matching Moss Green Erica Blouse (CHI1024), and a black Peasant Skirt (CHI1033).

His Lordship looks grand in a forest green English Doublet (CHI3002) with a burgundy Renaissance Shirt (CHI3016) and a pair of Long Breeches in burgundy (CHI3013).
He is wearing an Ardagh Brooch made of the finest Sheffield Pewter from St. Justin's (STJ1011).

New Blog for sharing photos

Every week we set up displays in our store to feature new combinations of clothing and accessories. We have started taking pictures so we can share them with you to give you ideas. You can click on any of these pictures to see larger views or click on the item code to go directly to the item in the online catalog.

Here we see a tan Barmaid's Bodice (CHI1026) over a burgundy Peasant Skirt (CHI1033) with a white Full Drawstring Chemise (CHI1036).

The cross on the ribbon around the waist is a new item of jewelry. It is an Ornate Cross with Enamel and Stones (BXG10001) .
The next item is a black Country Dress (CHI1046) worn with a moss green Country Chemise (CHI1045) .

Here is a lovely combination—a woad blue Irish Dress (CHI1060) over a saffron yellow Irish Chemise (CHI1035).

Both of these traditional garments are shown here in the most common colors found in Irish clothing. The Irish loved saffron yellow, and you can see why. Imagine this on a red-haired lass. The necklace is a Saint's Cross (AZG20032). It is based on the carved Celtic crosses found in Ireland that are carved with images picturing the lives of the saints.
