    ARRIVING BY DRUNKEN POST MISTRESS

    ARRIVING BY DRUNKEN POST MISTRESS

    Gone, it would seem, are the days of something arriving at my door in a bicycle basket steered precariously by our often-drunken Post Mistress. She's sadly gone from hip-flask to hip-replacement now. But it was only a decade ago that the mention of something arriving by Shipping conjured an image of The Queen Mary docking on the village green. Thankfully, the internet has brought things bang up to date and it's now possible to be far more efficient... though sales of pink gin have dropped in our village Off License.

    We realised quite early on at Bitch Slap Boutique that we would be able to offer Free Regular Shipping for most of our products when shipping within the UK, certainly for the forseeable future. Personally, I would find this quite attractive and I hope you agree. Sadly, one or two items such as lampshades can only be delivered by courier because of their bulk. But we're offering it free where we can... where have I hear that before?

    IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DONE PROPERLY, DO IT YOURSELF

    IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DONE PROPERLY, DO IT YOURSELF

    It's amazing how time can fly by so quickly without really realising where it has gone. It was only six months ago that a seed of an idea sprang to mind from an inability to find what I wanted to wear. I found LGBT stuff that was quite nice in many far flung places like the US and Australia, but nothing here in the UK that really said it for me. Though the world is a smaller place on the internet, I didn't want to import everything in my wardrobe. You know what they say: "If you want something done properly, do it yourself!" So I did.

    I was delighted with my first unique t-shirt. A friend suggested that they would like one too, then another, and then another. Another said they quite liked what I was wearing but would prefer it on a lampshade! Then another wanted a phone case to match... "and while you're at it, I need a new tablet case too." Suddenly, the idea for Bitch Slap Boutique was born.

    Having worked in drag myself for many years, the name Bitch Slap seemed an obvious choice, taken that many of our items carry one liners and put-downs. I just had to find the right manufactures in the UK that had the ability and passion to fulfil our requirements to the high standard that I like: good design, top quality, safe shipping, great returns policies, secure shopping cart and such. I can be a fussy cow!

    So, here we are and here we go. We're all so very excited about our brand new website and our new brand Bitch Slap Boutique. I really hope you like it and I'm always keen to hear your views and opinions... and ideas! Thanks for visiting x

    SIZE REALLY DOES MATTER

    SIZE REALLY DOES MATTER

    I know what you're thinking... stop that right now! I want to talk about dresses. Buying off-the-rail drag queen costumes for my show was always a difficulty, in particular as sizes around the world can differ. Imagine my horror, stepping from a plane in France as svelte size 16 to discover I was now a gargantuan 44. Also, it's rarely possible to try something on in a shop changing room if you're mixing genders. Similar to buying off the internet... you can't see if it fits before buying. This has sometimes been a real problem for me, in particular working in television, where you need several brand new costumes every single week.

    Tell me if I'm ranting on, but my main point is that it's very important to check your clothing size correctly before ordering from any internet shop. I've always said, "if in doubt, get it out." Of course, I'm talking about tape measures. Many a time I've been shopping with friends and never actually bought anything because I have to pretend I'm a size 12. Of course, with the internet you can be true to your real size because nobody is judging you. So before you order something fabulous from Bitch Slap Boutique, please double check with a tape measure and take a look at our Size Chart from the menu at the top of each page.
