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 […]


Condici 70843 mother of the bride outfit

Condici occasionwear gets me in the mood for spring

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

At home, the log burner is on. At the shop, the Halloween window is giving us some spooky style.  And totally out of sync with the season we are in, our spring/summer Condici mother of the bride and mother of the groom collection is arriving. Don’t get me wrong. Even though my body clock is […]


Prom dress Tiffany Illusions

Prom dress shopping – how to avoid the teenage tantrums

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

It’s half term week. For mums of teenage girls that can mean a stressful day (or two or three) out shopping for that “dream” prom dress. At Fab Frocks,  we are already getting our 2017 collection of prom dresses in. The school proms may not be until next summer but prom dress shopping has well […]


Coloured dresses by Diva Iris pencil autumn forest

How the right coloured dresses make you look younger

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

I adore this time of year – the trees are turning such stunning colours. Maybe the autumn appeals to me so much because it reflects all my best colours when it comes to clothes.  If I am wearing coloured dresses, I always go for something in reds, oranges, browns or greens. These are my “star” […]
