Deborah customises vintage cashmere clothes and remakes it into eye catching and very wearable pieces in her studio in Los Angelus. Her quirky appliques and high quality customisation sets her clothes apart.

I’ve been a fan since coming across Deborah Lindquist at the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris in 2007. It was the colour and designs that I was attracted to as well as this concept of upcycling. Howsoever I am won over to the cashmere side after practically living in my first grey bolero for a Winter. I can vouch for the cosy insulation that comes from a relatively thin layer of clothing.

Frightfully Good Value- Our sale price at only €50 is also frightfully good value – if we do say so ourselves. This is not pittance by any means but a fraction of what you would normally have to pay for a piece by Deborah Lindquist. More importantly these tops are beuatifully made and will not only keep you warm, and be a friend for years to come.

A Royal Salute

Given the Day That’s In It, here are some ideas for an early Summer wedding – from Cool & Casual to All Out.  

Fit For A Queen

 

 

Ideas for A Summer Wedding

I was very surprised to find myself excited for Kate Middleton. And not only that but I’m also very excited about the Queen visiting Cork in a few weeks – which is very bizarre – not being a royalist … at all. Although our own politicians behave like they’re part of a monarchy with all their entitlements. The term “ordinary people” seems like code for “commoners”. If ever there was a time for greater ethics & fairness – it’s NOW. Anyhow while I was thinking about what it would be like to be a future Queen and all the duties that would entail, I’ve had to admit I’ve been a bit lapse in my own duties as a shopkeeper here at Belleetik. I’ve spent the past 6 months in a blissful & privileged bubble thanks to new baby – a little boy – born in December. ONE is back again and ready to be Queen of Ones own roost again– so please do keep in contact.
