Today we’re at the Tram & Social in Tooting - come on down! (at Tooting Tram & Social)
Today Bunny Smalls ventured out to show our wares at the Miss Vintage Wedding Affair event at Battersea Arts Centre. Surrounded by wedding dresses, cakes, gorgeous flowers and table dressing ideas, it was a lovely way to spend the day!
We’re excited to announce that http://www.mygreenlipstick.com is now stocking Bunny Smalls lingerie.
In addition to being a smart, easy-to-use online boutique (a major plus in our eyes!), My Green Lipstick has a great range of designers offering the best in eco fashion. From collections made exclusively in the UK, to vintage accessories and pieces crafted from the finest Earth-friendly fabrics - you’ll wonder how you hadn’t discovered it earlier!
Most of all, we love My Green Lipstick’s values and think they’re a perfect match with what we believe at Bunny Smalls:
Take a browse through the shop now:

Fluorescent yellow lace from Bunny Smalls on your wedding day? Yes please!
Perhaps the most exciting development over the summer has been our recent launch on one of our favourite websites, Not on the High Street. Packed full of gorgeous handmade products, from cute homeware to jewellery, wedding accessories and baby gifts, it’s a great place to hunt for unique gifts (not to mention the odd treat!).
Not on the High Street is renowned for having very high standards when it comes to selecting their partners, so we’re honoured to have the chance to be part of their award-winning store!
Monday is 4th July – Independence Day for the US and - for us here in the UK – Independents’ Day, a day dedicated to supporting local retailers.
We’ve all seen Mary Portas on TV on her one-woman mission to revive the (almost) dying indie industry in Britain, but how realistic is it to give up the convenience of shopping multi-million-pound corporations?
Some may say not very – but there are small things we can do to boost the indie industry. Whether it’s buying British-made fashion, locally grown food, music from local record stores or manufacturing in the UK, every little bit helps.
So with that in mind, the 4th July has been named as the day to celebrate local retailers across the country. For one day, we’re encouraged to buy at least one item from an independent retailer and to celebrate being an indie retailer ourselves - we’ll be offering 10% off everything at Bunny Smalls on Monday. Get shopping indie!
Wedding fever has launched into full swing as Lily Allen celebrates her wedding day, Kate Moss parties on her hen do and there’s news that Sofia Coppola is getting hitched this summer - so we couldn’t help but get swept up in all things bridal.
We’ve been busy sourcing some vintage lace and delicate trims for a range of chic garters for the big day. A great gift for any bride, we’ll be adding them to the site very soon - so stay tuned!
On the subject of weddings, here are a few of our favourite rock ’n’ roll wedding pics (Bianca & Mick, Iman & David, Gwen & Gavin, Lily & Caleb):
Just as we finally launched the website, it’s time to start planning a photoshoot to showcase our new colourways for “high summer”. In contrast to what’s currently featured on bunnysmalls.com, the new pieces will be a vibrant mix of royal blue, hot pink, canary yellow and fiery orange, with clashing lace trims and ribbons.
Just as these new colours have a sense of attitude, we want our new shoot to have a certain rock ‘n’ roll swagger and who better to draw inspiration from but the one and only Juliette Lewis.
First step for planning the shoot was to create a moodboard of inspirational images and trawling the internet for photos of Juliette (and Gwen, Florence and Natasha for good measure) looking rock ‘n’ roll was easy.
So with the photographer booked, all we need is to confirm the model (pretty vital) and we’re all set to shoot next weekend. Let’s hope the results shape up to be as good as we’d hoped!
Welcome to the inside scoop from behind the scenes at Bunny Smalls. The last 12 months has been a mix of blood, sweat and tears (quite literally), as we’ve tried to get bunnysmalls.com off the ground.
A vast number of things have helped provide the motivation for the launch (in no particular order): the Rolling Stones and The Black Keys on repeat, a regular supply of red wine, a discerning house rabbit, a passion for promoting all things ‘Made in Britain’, a love of lacy lingerie, an addiction to sourcing fabulous fabrics, a marvelous web developer/gourmet sandwich-maker, the thought of giving a good friend and new mum a reason to leave the house, the Christian Dior exhibition at Somerset House, a well-received lace garter made for a friend’s wedding, Mad Men’s Betty & Don Draper, The Social Network, a somewhat competitive nature, Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration, supportive friends, enthusiastic market stall shoppers and a belief in creating something that’s been beautifully handmade - from start to finish.
From now on we will be bringing you regular updates of developments, previews of new products, backstage footage of photoshoots, as well as details of what inspires us at Bunny Smalls. We’d love to hear your comments and look forward to you joining us on our lacy lingerie adventure. xx
