'Snakes and Ladders' - Size Guide


While you were growing up, what was your favourite game to play? Did you and your family enjoy playing a classic board game? While Monopoly might cause some family fights, you could never go wrong with the simple fun of ‘Snakes and Ladders’!

This game is as timeless as a 1956 Ford Thunderbird and the game has been part of family game nights and sleepovers for decades. By the 1950s there was hardly a household in the western world without a box of ‘Snakes and Ladders’! The playful nature of the board game mixes effortlessly with all of the charm of the 1950s, and the latest collection from Kitten D’Amour showcases this perfectly.

Our new “Snakes and Ladders” print takes inspiration from the famous board game, with a little Kitten D’Amour twist of course! Our beautiful vintage dresses steal the show with a pattern of blue and white, and with a luxury petticoat underneath the vibrant colours of the Kitten comic squares really come to life! Of course with inspiration from the fashion of the 1950s, perfect for an afternoon of driving in your Classic Thunderbird car!

Everything from flared skirts to fitted tops look incredible in this unique print, and everything looks better with a cute crop cardigan! The crop cardigan from the ‘Snakes and Ladders’ collection is especially delightful, as this piece of 1950s fashion features the very first Kitten D’Amour cardigan to be made with a collection print! This stunning crop cardigan fits perfectly over all your favourite vintage dresses, and if you add a soft petticoat your whole look can be elevated to another level! You had better have your camera ready, because this Collection of outfits are perfect for a Vintage / Retro photoshoot…think Grease…think I Love Lucy!

A vintage dress and tulle petticoat can be such tremendous fun!
With so many serious moments in life, sometimes you just want a bit of fun. Why should your wardrobe be any different? If you’re ready to roll the dice, then it’s time to check out Kitten D’Amour’s ‘Snakes and Ladders’ colletion!

    The ‘Snakes and Ladders Sleeveless Dress’ was the first dress 👗 I tried in my first visit to the Chermide shop 🛍. The Kittens were very welcoming and I had so much fun tried the dress on. I ended up only purchasing the white Petticoat. But it was so lovely to get to a Kitten D’Amour shop for the first time. And everybody was so lovely.
    Thanks a lot! 💖
