Designer Spotlight: Dottie Angel

Dottie is the brainchild of Tif Autumn Fussell. In her own words:

“Dottie Angel lives in a run down cottage over looking the sea. she has two Airstream trailers in the yard, one is her studio and the other stores her vast collection of vintage notions… her eight children are home schooled and spend the day outside running barefoot and their evenings sitting by the fireplace, learning ancient crafting techniques. they never talk back to their mother and always smile… she has several chickens, seven rescued greyhounds and a bearded dragon named STIG… Dottie spends most days dressed in an old vintage slip that belonged to her grandmother, that she customised. she thinks to herself, surely everyone dreams of living this life, or at least dressing like they do…

Tif is a Brit misplaced abroad in suburbia, she is a mother of four kids who talk back and a wife. she wears a customised slip and dreams of living Dottie Angel’s life…”
