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 […]


Loyalty scheme Fab Frocks Smashed Lemon

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. Window shoppers love to stop and watch the mannequin do her spin so they can get the full impact of the backless dress. This season, […]

Grecian dresses – how to bring out the Goddess in you

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 […]

Evening wear – how to dress the best for black tie

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 […]

Retro dresses – why old-fashioned is the new look

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

Retro dresses or vintage style dresses are making a real resurgence in occasion wear. This is great news as the 1950’s retro dress shape is so flattering to wear. The A-line shape is kind to most figures. For those without a waist, it creates one. If you are lucky enough to have a tiny waist, […]

Going out dresses – how to look hot on a budget

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Going out dresses become a wardrobe must-have at this time of year. About now, I often get customers in our boutique in a real panic. They have got a last-minute invitation to somewhere posh and don’t have any going out dresses. It is always a good idea to have at least one going out dress […]


Dresses with sleeves by Dynasty

Dresses with sleeves wanted! Help! Do they exist?

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

As soon as BBC’s ‘Strictly’ hits our screens, customers inundate me wanting evening dresses and party dresses with sleeves. “We see them on TV but can’t find them in the shops!” is their battle cry. But the good news is, at last evening dresses with sleeves are available. And they are available to us lesser […]

Is navy the new black for this autumn?

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Navy is definitely making a come back for the autumn season. Here at Fab Frocks, we are busy rearranging the shop as our autumn 2017 deliveries arrive. Always an exciting time! And navy is already proving key to this season’s wardrobe.  As a colour, it is associated with smartness and authority. When you start to […]

It’s time to get our glad rags on and dress for two very worthy causes. Why? Because in September, Fab Frocks  is teaming up with Wimborne Rotary Club for ‘ Friday Night is Fashion Night’. This charity fashion show is aiming to raise much needed funds for Forest Holme Hospice in Poole and the Dorset […]
