Little Deer Blog

Blogger Feature: Cátia Tomé

Cátia launched her lifestyle blog 'According to Panda'  in 2012 alongside her career as a Designer & Art Director from Lisbon, Portugal.

Her blog is a kind of diary, where you can discover the single details of her daily life: photography, fashion, design, travelling, food, handmade, flowers, crochet, books and the real meaning of Home (with lots of love and cats!).

Cátia recently featured a pair of sunglasses from The Little Deer on her blog and we just love how she's styled them.

Pop Up Shop by Desire Lines Clothing Featuring The Little Deer

We are so pleased to be part of the pop up shop set up by Desire Lines Clothing here in the heart of the Brighton North Laine. 

The shop changes hands each week with the intention of being a collective space to share ideas, skills and products. From the week of 12th October - 18th October the space is being taken over by Desire Lines Clothing whose aim is to provide an alternative to the throw-away fashion culture and give a modern approach to vintage. By fusing vintage clothing with their in house designs they aim to produce timeless collections. 

Desire Lines have asked us to share the space and exhibit some pieces from our key designers. 

Visit the shop on Gloustershire Road, Brighton to find out more about the designers at The Little Deer and let us show you why it's so important to shop with small brands where the designer is involved in the processes from start to finish and makes each individual item in limited numbers rather than the mass produced products on the high street. We believe it is so important to treasure what you buy for years and years. Little Deer pieces are for life, not just for Christmas!

Also featured at the pop up shop is Glasshouse who specialise in contemporary stained glass accessories including terrariums, lanterns, planters and jewellery. All handmade in Hove, UK and photography postcards by 'Born Missing'. 

During the week Desire Lines will be organising a collaborative patchwork project, making a quilt from recycled fabrics to raise money for War on Want who 'fights against the root causes of poverty and human rights violation.' Please bring any scraps of material to contribute to the patchwork.

Little Deer x Brighton Lace - Frozen Bralette

We first worked with fellow Brighton creatives Brighton Lace back in early summer this year when we launched the 'Secret Garden' Bralette. We love working with Brighton Lace as everything is handmade here in Brighton by three lovely ladies using UK sourced lace. 

The 'Secret Garden' Bralette was warmly received by our customers and has been a popular favourite ever since we launched it. 

This winter we teamed up with Brighton Lace again, but this time we wanted to create an intimate piece that harmonised the cold english weather already creeping in by late September! 

Together we came up with the 'Frozen' bralette. Ice white in colour and a soft modern pattern lace, this bralette is the perfect intimate to keep you comfortable under those cosy thick knitted jumpers this winter. 

Brighton Lace owner Lou says:

'This is a Victoriana vintage triangle design bralette - a style we have never explored before. It's delicate detail looks beaitiful against the skin and works beautifully under a bit of cashmere.'

With adjustable straps and soft stretch lace, this bra feel extremely luxurious yet comfortable. Only a very limited number made in sizes A-B and C-D cups.

Shop the Frozen Bralette online now here.


Outfit Inspiration - Summer Cool

Each of our Vintage items in the Vintage Boutique section of the website are all hand picked individually by us. We look for classic pieces in good condition that don't follow 'trends' as such. We search for timeless pieces that you will be able to style again and again, season after season.

Little Deer owner Jade shows us how she would wear this lovely Vintage Grey Longline Sheer Top. Jade has matched the top with a peach summer swing dress, Wolf & Moon Necklace, Sterling Silver Rings by Rebecca Gladsone and some simple sandals.
