Spring is finally here! Well, sort of. And it’s also nearing the end of the month, which usually means PAY DAAAAAAAAAY!
Fortunately, the kind folks at Joy clothing have some gorgeous 1950s inspired dresses to take away that pesky money from your bank account. We’re particularly taken with the Hawaiian and surf-inspired prints. Just click on the images displayed to be taken to the appropriate product page.

Believe it or not, occasionally BWT has needs. FILTHY needs (and we’re not talking about getting slack with the washing up for a few days.)
But despite 99.99999999% of the entire internet being taken up by porn, there is a surprising lack of erotic choice available to the female shopper.
We think there should be more 50’s style pin-ups to look at, with girls wearing “proper”, “decent” underwear and stockings.
We know all girls want to look at this stuff, because every Burlesque event we’ve attended (which is A HELLAVALOT) is frequented by 90% women. The 10% have been taken there by their girlfriends.
Thankfully, a recent shopping trip for a new girdle caused us to stumble across this – Peek! Magazine.
As the website itself says, Peek was:
“… Inspired by gentlemen’s magazines from the 1950’s, a period where simply a glimpse of a ladies under-garment was enough to send many into convulsions.
“However it is not designed to appeal to only aficionados of that era… Neither do we believe that Peek! should only be read by gentlemen, it is aimed at ladies and gentlemen alike and for this reason we bring you lots of articles about how the modern lady about town can dress in satorial elegance.”
Sounds good to us! BWT can’t wait for the next issue.

This week from Thursday to Sunday (28th – 31st January) they will be having a sale event with many things at half price, which means that you cab buy two!
The only snag is, the sale is restricted to their London store only, and not online. Sorry folks! But if you are in the London area or fancy an outing, you could do a lot worse than popping down to their store on Holloway Road. To check out their stock and more information about the sale, please click here.
