Mother of the bride occasion-wear


Shopping with mum – stress-free mother of the bride

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 […]



Focus on your style not your size label

It would seem size really does matter when you consider the revelation that 1 in 5 UK women cut the label out of their clothes because they’re embarrassed.  I fully support the #NoSizeFitsAll campaign, aiming to take away the shame connected to clothing sizes. More than in any other clothing sector, when it comes to occasionwear, […]



The decolletage debate – will you stick your neck out?

I promise I won’t do a fashion review every week about ‘Strictly’ but I just had to comment on this weekend. As well as some dodgy moves on the dancefloor, there were also some disastrous decolletage moments when it came to the frocks! Host, Claudia Winkleman, in her two-tone orange and black dress looked like […]



Arming up with sleeves and a baked bean can

It’s my birthday today! I think sadly I’m now on tricky ground to carry on calling myself mid-40s. I’m starting to notice all those thing that “come with age”  – wearing glasses, middle age spread etc. Whenever I visit my doctor now , his cheerful diagnosis is always that “it’s to do with your age.” […]
