Floral dresses – how to look stunning in the pick of the bunch

It may be chilly outside but inside my boutique, floral dresses are blooming.

Ellie Wilde – why we are going wild for her amazing dresses

When it comes to a prom queen, I have lost count of how many I have sold dresses to. Here at Fab Frocks, we have been selling prom dresses for over 16 years. Back then, we started out when the idea of a school prom was just beginning in the UK.  Over the years, it […]

Plus size or fuller-figured ladies, as I prefer to call them, come to my boutique delighted that we actually do over a size 18! Sadly, a lot of occasionwear shops start at a size 10 and stop at size 18. There is no plus size option! I’m a great believer  in dressing real women of […]

Cape sleeve dresses from Dress Code style DC223E


Cape sleeve dresses that won’t make you look like Batman

Cape sleeve dresses are a brilliant alternative to dresses with sleeves. The floaty overlay covers your arms without restricting your movement.
