Brand Introduction: Ick by Industrialkitty!

Side View

After much anticipation, I am thrilled to introduce to you a new independent Lolita brand located in the United States called Ick by Industrialkitty!  I adore supporting people with fresh talent, good worth ethic, excellent customer service, and high quality products. All of these and more describe one of my best friends, Emma Bottari, AKA industrialkitty. (You can view her feedback here.)
If you follow me on Facebook or have read Sherry and Cookies since it was in its former home, I have talked about Emma before! As I explain in the following vlog from last year, her first series of dresses have a beautiful, classic Alice print from which I wore a JSK and half bonnet in the 2011 ACEN Khaotic Kouture Fashion show.

Her next line, the Little Bear Series, is just as gorgeous! Currently available for sale are four JSKs and three skirts, both fully lined, in a navy blue velveteen with a border print of little bears wearing bows and holding balloons along a scalloped hemline. One of my favourite things is that the JSK has a sweetheart neckline---very romantic, right?!

A few weeks ago, I modeled the skirt and JSK in a photoshoot we did together:

Included with each skirt (75 USD + shipiping) and JSK (150 USD + shipping) is a hair accessory of your choice: a flat top headbow, two bow combs, two bow elastic bands, or two bow barrettes. Each piece is made to order, and the measurements are as follows:

JSK Standard Sizing

Bust - 32-35 inches 
Waist - 25-29 inches
Skirt Length - 23 inches

Custom sizing is available, and the maximum bust size is 40”.

Skirt Standard Sizing

Waist - 25-28 inches
Skirt Length - 23 inches

The waistband is 2.5 inches wide.

Custom sizing is also available for the skirt, and the maximum waist size is 36”.

(Please see the individual listings for further details.)

This print is on a very limited run, so snatch one up while you can! However, if before you have a chance they become sold out, do not fear; there are other series in the works! You can expect to see plenty from Ick by Industrialkitty in the near future! For the latest news and updates, like her page on Facebook!
