Red dresses – why they will never embarrass you

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

You have to go a long way to beat the festive appeal of red dresses.  Red is bright, cheerful and of course, a colour that we all associate with Santa. We know he looks great in this colour but can it work for everyone? I truly believe it can.  I get a lot of customers […]

Introducing our fab loyalty scheme – how to shop with rewards

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

The biggest compliment a shop like mine can have is for customers to come back to us time and again. I may help a lady find an occasionwear outfit for her daughter or son’s wedding. She then comes back to me for a few holiday dresses. A year later, she’s back for an outfit for […]

Backless dresses – how to make a stylish exit

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

At Fab Frocks, we’ve just invested in a turntable that spins our window mannequin around 360 degrees. This device is perfect for showing off backless dresses to their full potential.

Thursday, November 23rd, 2017

Haven’t we all got a Goddess inside us? If you’re anything like me, most of the time I’m sure she’s a domestic one! But, I reckon, lurking under all of our everyday exteriors is an after-dark Goddess desperate to get out. And why not now? After all, the party season is well and truly hurtling […]

Mum of the bride – your turn to blush at the wedding

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

We’ve all heard of blushing brides. But what about a blushing mum of the bride? I don’t mean red-faced and embarrassed. I mean beautiful in blush. Blush pink is such a popular colour for mums of the bride and mums of the groom.  Year round – whether the wedding is in the height of summer […]

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

It’s the time of year when more of my customers are shopping for evening wear. This is probably one of the trickiest types of clothing to shop for. I say that and I have been selling it for over 16 years! But when I go to a formal night where women are required to wear […]


Mother of the groom – your chance to shine

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

“I’m a mother of the groom so I’m not important as the mother of the bride.”  I hear this so often from ladies coming into my shop to find a wedding outfit. I know there is an etiquette around the mother of the bride getting her outfit first. However, this can often lead to lots […]
