Smart casual dress Frank Lyman 63410

How to crack that smart casual dress code

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Invite to Sunday lunch today. An anniversary celebration. Dress code – smart casual.  What does that mean? For me, confusion! I’ve worked in fashion for over 15 years now and I still don’t understand it. Which way do I go? More to the smart or more to the casual? Aaargh! As usual, with only an […]

Sequin dresses – why women are never too old to sparkle

Saturday, October 15th, 2016

Phew! I’m sequinned out.  We could have given ‘Strictly’ a run on the sparkle stakes today. So many customers looking for sequin dresses. The party season is definitely kicking in, though poor Cinders here is still yet to have an invite anywhere. Perhaps the now available Brad Pitt just hasn’t found my address yet? We […]


Cocktail dresses with sleeves by Michaela Louisa 8363

Cocktail dresses that give you the cold shoulder

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

I’ve just paid a visit to the high street to suss out the competition for cocktail dresses. Pleased to say it’s all looking a bit drab out there. Great news for a boutique like mine that specialises in evening wear all year round! I’m loving the fact that this year we’ve managed to get some […]


Mother of the bride occasion-wear

Shopping with mum – stress-free mother of the bride

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

So you’ve made your mum the happiest mum in the world by setting your wedding date. But you may also have,  inadvertently, filled her with panic about what mother of the bride outfit she will wear on the big day! Us mums are worriers. That’s part of our job. In the 15 years I’ve been […]


Low back evening dresses by Pia Michi style 1221

The low down on low back evening dresses

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

By day we may be pulling on our winter vest. But by night, it’s time to whip it off and get that back out on show. Low back evening dresses are in for the party season. So, if you want three hundred and sixty degree wow factor, go for the low-backed look. Our customers are loving […]


Evening dresses by City Goddess style DR247A

Evening dresses are in the Big Pink for Breast Cancer

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

This week we’ve had lots of lovely ladies in Fab Frocks shopping for evening dresses to wear to events supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Some of them had fallen victim to this terrible disease and are in recovery stages. But still keen to get their glad rags on and party for a good cause. Such […]


Mothers of the bride outfit Zeila 3018707

Real life mothers of the bride should get the Vogue treatment

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

So today, Vogue magazine hits the newstands with real-life women as models or “nodels” as they’re known. Sadly it’s only for one issue! A token gesture for those of us who frequent the real world of fat thighs and less than flat tummies. Of course, we buy magazines because they’re aspirational. But now, those aspirations […]


Diva day dress fan Carol Kirkwood wearing Diva Jessica in Jasmine Green

Monday mornings bring the day dress Diva out in me

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

We’ve all been there I’m sure. Monday morning has sneaked up far too quickly. All those good intentions to get the chores out of the way on Sunday didn’t happen. Your day still sits in a mountain of ironing you ditched last night in favour of Poldark. And it would seem every pair of tights […]


Frock coats with a dress like Cabotine 5007272 are in vogue

Frock coats – the great cover up to beat the winter blues

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

Pinch, punch first day of the month and all that! October’s here. Or Frocktober as we love to call it.  It’s time for winter weddings. That can mean a thick vest to some mothers of the bride and frock coats to others. It’s without a doubt trickier to find an outfit for a winter event. […]


Wedding guest dresses for plus size women

I’m a wedding guest and I’m too big for dresses

Thursday, September 29th, 2016

The name of our shop should be self-explanatory. Fab Frocks – it says what it does on the tin right? So today, when I was able to help a stressed-out wedding guest I felt really proud. Fab Frocks  is living up to its name! This lady has honestly never owned a dress in her life. Her comfort […]
