Sunday, November 27th, 2016

Forget about a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow. I have found comfort at the end of mine! All thanks to Rainbow Club Shoes. Last night I went to an evening wedding reception.  Lots of drinking of course…. and even more dancing. Now I have always been a lover of high heels. […]

Meet Rosa Clara – the newest name in occasionwear

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Like vintage wine getting better with age, it seems it is the same for mature brides.  Getting married again and tying the knot later  in life is back in vogue.  At the weekend I exhibited at Milton Abbey wedding show – a stunning house and abbey venue in the heart of Dorset countryside. As well as meeting lots […]

Occasion dresses – will they rise to your occasion?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016
