Black tie dresses Pia Michi style 1221

Black tie dresses – make sure it’s not fright night!

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

That witching hour will be on us tomorrow.  Yet at an event I went to this weekend, I was sure it had come early! So many women wearing black, I’d thought I’d walked into a Halloween party rather than a charity dinner. Black tie dresses don’t have to mean black. So why do women feel that […]

Sequin dresses – why women are never too old to sparkle

Saturday, October 15th, 2016

Phew! I’m sequinned out.  We could have given ‘Strictly’ a run on the sparkle stakes today. So many customers looking for sequin dresses. The party season is definitely kicking in, though poor Cinders here is still yet to have an invite anywhere. Perhaps the now available Brad Pitt just hasn’t found my address yet? We […]


Cocktail dresses with sleeves by Michaela Louisa 8363

Cocktail dresses that give you the cold shoulder

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

I’ve just paid a visit to the high street to suss out the competition for cocktail dresses. Pleased to say it’s all looking a bit drab out there. Great news for a boutique like mine that specialises in evening wear all year round! I’m loving the fact that this year we’ve managed to get some […]


Low back evening dresses by Pia Michi style 1221

The low down on low back evening dresses

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

By day we may be pulling on our winter vest. But by night, it’s time to whip it off and get that back out on show. Low back evening dresses are in for the party season. So, if you want three hundred and sixty degree wow factor, go for the low-backed look. Our customers are loving […]

Evening dresses are in the Big Pink for Breast Cancer

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

This week we’ve had lots of lovely ladies in Fab Frocks shopping for evening dresses to wear to events supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some of them had fallen victim to this terrible disease and are in recovery stages. But still keen to get their glad rags on and party for a good cause. Such […]


The decolletage debate – will you stick your neck out?

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

I promise I won’t do a fashion review every week about ‘Strictly’ but I just had to comment on this weekend. As well as some dodgy moves on the dancefloor, there were also some disastrous decolletage moments when it came to the frocks! Host, Claudia Winkleman, in her two-tone orange and black dress looked like […]


Arming up with sleeves and a baked bean can

Monday, September 26th, 2016

It’s my birthday today! I think sadly I’m now on tricky ground to carry on calling myself mid-40s. I’m starting to notice all those thing that “come with age”  – wearing glasses, middle age spread etc. Whenever I visit my doctor now , his cheerful diagnosis is always that “it’s to do with your age.” […]


Why boutique doesn’t have to mean big bucks

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Word Origin & History. boutique “fashion shop,” 1953, earlier “small shop of any sort” (1767).  So why do many people associate a boutique shop with it being expensive? At the moment we’ve got a range of dresses in our window for under £55. We’ve got evening dresses starting at £85 and day dresses at £48. […]


Navy is the new black darling

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

It’s this time of year we reach for our trusted LBDs as invites to parties, awards dinners and the C word starts to approach. I have to be honest – I’ve never been a fan of black. I must be the only boutique owner in the land not to have a little black dress of […]


TV with tassels on

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Only one more sleep until ‘Strictly’ comes back on to our screens. Sad I know but my diary is cleared for Friday and Saturday night (and for the rest of  autumn and winter to be completely honest) as the new show launches us into that wonderful Glitter Ball world of fake tans, sequins and fab-u-lous […]
