Hello! After a really intense 18 months (although the whole 10.5 years has been quite the ride!), I've made the rough decision to get off the Desvalido train & jump into a big girl day job. I'll be making all current & new orders as planned, & closing the store to new orders on the 31st May 2024 After I close the store I'll finish up all the open orders, then the plan is to stock up on what I can & reopen ready-to-ship in Nov/Dec 2024. Plans can change but these are my thoughts, I don't want to fully close but holy moly I can't do made-to-order AND a full time job bab ..read more

Welcome back babes, last blog post was a year & a half ago where I posted the recipe for cheese & strawberries on toast. REVOLUTIONARY! I do still eat this on every special occasion though, I stand by it. Trust me. I have mediocre taste in most things, but not food! I'll tell you the most interesting thing that happened to me last year, I reference it a bunch on social media so I may as well post the whole story somewhere. The Ovary Thing.  In October 2023 I was going about my day, MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS, I thought ya know what would really kick start my Monday afternoon? A redbu ..read more

Just a quick post for this morning I am TIRED of looking at this computer after a massive website update! (Note I do almost all our website stuff myself, it's not perfect, if you ever see some "lipstick on my teeth" aka anything on the website that is obviously wrong, I'd love it if you let me know!)

It will only show you what's in stock, & you can filter by Shop -> All -> click the "Filter" button to expand all the glorious ways you can sort the store to find exactly what you're looking for!

A small update woohoo 17th of May 2021 was one of my worst days ever (at least for me, so far, I guess) I walked into my studio at 8am puffy eyed, & ready to let my 3 employees & 2 marketing contractors the SHIT NEWS. We were probably going to go broke, like, yesterday. We could close at the end of the month before things got worse, or maybe just maybe make it through til December to use up our materials, like a slow death but at least we'd get some time to plan.  "How about we let the people decide?" Um how about NO, as if I want to tell the whole entire internet t ..read more

19/05/21 SO. Desvalido has been running at a loss with no savings to fall back on for majority of this year so far. We were very lucky last year & like many online stores, experienced some really important growth which we used to level up Desvalido full force! We moved out of the house & into a studio, grew our team with 2 amazing part-timers Kat & Emilly, got through it & loved every second Then in December 2020 things slowed down A LOT. In April we parted ways with one of our two retailers which definitely didn't help the cashflow situation (we still love 'em though ..read more

RIP The Lingerie Truck

It's official. Desvalido is saying a tearful goodbye to The Lingerie Truck! It's kind of funny. What started as a distant dream turned into an obsession, then into a reality. My parents got a new delivery van & gave me their old one (that's every Christmas & birthday sorted) then my lovely lovely boyfriend did the rest. I mean, I did paint the walls, but he went over it again to fix up the runs. If he was trying to make a pair of shorts I'd probably redo them just the same! We all have our talents. Once I set the date for the grand opening, the inside ..read more
