Dolls Kill brings back Delia's 
Dolls Kill, an online boutique gaining a steady following for its rebellious attitude, has brought Delia's back from the dead. On Friday, the edgy retailer unveiled a 70-piece range of clothing, shoes and accessories inspired by the "It" girl brand of the '90s. "Delia's was an obsession, shaped a culture and left a permanent tattoo on a generation," said Shaudi Lynn, Dolls Kill co-founder, in an official press statement. "We've always been inspired by Delia's' vintage, original style, and it felt like the right time to introduce it to a whole new generation." The limited-edition collection ranges in price from $18-$88 and is available exclusively through the Dolls Kill website and retail stores. {Fashionista inbox}
