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 […]


Focus on your style not your size label

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

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?

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

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

Monday, September 26th, 2016

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.” […]


Enjoying an Indian summer romance

Sunday, September 25th, 2016

Who says romance is dead? I’ve spent some of today meeting lovely couples thinking of getting married at the beautiful Bournemouth Beach Weddings venue.  A whole range of lovebirds were there  – from young, first-timers to the more mature deciding to give it another go. It’s mind-blowing to see the choice when it comes to […]
