Custom Garter Belts by Gatsby
Posted on July 20 2008
Due to the amazing demand for our vintage silk stockings (both natural and hand-dyed), I realized not too long ago that we just didn't have enough garters in stock. As soon as they arrive, they are snapped up, leaving the rest of you high and dry. We have a few great ones coming from The Lake and Stars, Princesse Tam Tam and Stella McCartney this Fall, but I predict that those too will fly off the shelves. Once the weather cools off a bit, girls will be clamoring for thigh-highs, and they'll need something to hold them up. Fortunately, there will be another option: custom made garter belts by Gatsby (my soon-to-be launched new line of handmade lingerie.) All Gatsby garments are made of vintage silk or organic cotton with antique lace trim and cute details like pearly snaps and delicate buttons. The inspiration is obviously 1920s-1930s flapper style, but with a clean, modern twist. I'll be posting lots more on the styles that will be available, but I just wanted to give you a heads up!
