Rosa Clara IK2J3 mother of the bride outfit

Meet Rosa Clara – the newest name in occasionwear

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

There are a lot of things I love about Spain. The climate, the cuisine, the wine, the olive-skinned men I have to confess! And of course, the gorgeous fashions. That is why I am so excited to announce that we have another amazing Spanish occasion wear label Rosa Clara joining us for 2017. This label is […]

The Cabotine occasion dress is here!

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

So excited to open a delivery today ( the box was so big I could move in to it!). Inside, this beautiful Cabotine occasion dress. This Cabotine style was a winner last year. I even had two ladies nearly come to blows over the last one we had! So it is back for 2017!  And […]


One shoulder dress City Goddess D1874

One shoulder dresses not to be shrugged at!

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

This season seems to be all about the neckline. One shoulder dresses, cold-shoulder dresses, off-the-shoulder styles. You name it, exposing the shoulder is back in fashion. The celebs are working this look on the red carpet. On TV, for ‘Strictly’ presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, it is all about showing a bit or a […]

Vintage evening dresses from Little Mistress L668D1A

Vintage evening dresses take us back in fashion

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Vintage evening dresses and retro cocktail dresses are having a renaissance this winter season. As the clocks turn back, so does fashion. More women are seeking to replicate styles from the past. We are even getting prom girls in on the hunt for a dress that captures the glamour of that bygone era. Everyone seems […]


Mature brides dress by Dress Code DC191E

Mature brides do not have to be like Miss Haversham!

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 […]


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 […]


Occasion dresses by Cabotine 5007557

Occasion dresses – will they rise to your occasion?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

There’s a lot of talk lately about the mother of the bride “uniform”.  The classic look of a dress and jacket. For a lot of women this works beautifully, hence why it is so popular as a style. But some mums of the bride and groom are on the look out for occasion dresses. Ditching […]
