I think they all look fabulous..

Columbian Wedding

This radiant lady recently jetted off to Columbia, for a spectator 3 day event wedding!

She hired the perfect the dress for the occasion. It’s our bright pink tulle, side split, with beautifully detailed  embellishment. She said she had a wonderful time.

50 Shades on the Red Carpet


Dakota Johnson took to the red carpet at the Fifty Shades of Grey premiere in London last night. She turned up wearing a white embellished Saint Laurent gown. She then threw on a leather biker jacket for when it got a little chillier.

Daring and sensible!

Hunt Ball


Our gorgeous Harriet needed something sophisticated, yet sexy to wear to a Hunt Ball recently.

She hired our floral black fishtail, cross-back long evening gown. Just beautiful!

Pretty in Red

This looker of a lady is wearing our favourite silk, tight fitting, deep red cocktail dress to a dinner.

Classic design, yet very elegant and ladylike, just like our Alex.

Lady in Blue

This pretty lady attended her friend’s wedding in London. She was after something long and glamorous for the occasion. So we kitted her out with this beautiful long, 3 layer tulle gown, with a-line embellishment.

We think we Monica looks splendid, and I’m sure she felt as good as she looks!

Children’s Butterfly Ball

The Children’s Butterfly Ball took place not so long ago, and what a good cause it is. Our smiley lady, Mary Anne attended in our purple embellished capped sleeved evening gown.

I bet she made many heads turn!

 

Classic Black Dress

The demure Rachel here wore our low back black jersey gown that ties at the back and hangs loosely. Worn to her leavers ball this Monday evening.

Such a grand photo, we hope she’ll be back in the future!

Belle of the Ball

Our beautiful client, Rachel (right) had her annual awards ceremony with work to attend earlier this month.

She’s full of confidence and not afraid to go glamorous. We decided on the full length gold strapless dress would be ideal.. next time round I’m sure she’ll be back to hire something even more elaborate.

Only 21 Once!

Our lovely lady Georgie, (first picture, right) is wearing our floor length strapless 1920’s style gold/silver dress.

She wore it to her friend’s 21st birthday party, (second picture, far right) These girls all look smashing. I’m sure a party to remember!

Night at the V&A

Anna, (on the left in the picture) hired this black and gold lace top with embellishment, and then accessorised it with this tulle black scarf for the evening – how very formal they all look!

We’re all Guilty of it!

Of what I hear you cry? Of wearing so much black! Yes, this bold statement comes from my observation this morning on the tube to work. As I peeled my ‘black’ coat off whilst sat down to reveal my very bright, slightly bold, pink jumper. I realised I was the only one on the carriage wearing something that wasn’t black, blue (very dark blue) or a deep grey. And I thought to myself, why as a country do we wear so much black?

Maybe we take comfort in wearing black and dark tones because we like to go unnoticed? Or is it because the weather, generally, is so damned depressing it changes how we feel towards our clothes. You know like, comfort over fashion?! However I am very guilty of this – my week will start with me wearing mostly black, then throughout the week day by day my items tend to get brighter or even tighter, which generally means I’m going out meeting friends.

Many clients come in to our studio and always say to me, ‘NO black please’ but then you show them a great evening gown in black, they try it on, love it and generally always leave with that black dress they tried to dismiss before they came in here.

Black is so common, you’ll hardly be picked out of a crowd, there will easily be a hundred black dresses at a function. People like to blend in. Some don’t of course, but I bet even those gregarious types like to wear black during the week when they’re not partying!

They say you can tell when someone is recovering from an illness because they start to add colour to their daily ensemble, which means they are starting to feel more confident with themselves and don’t feel they want to hide away anymore.

I like to try and make a point of wearing patterns or colour during the week, as I truly believe it changes how you feel about yourself. It’s so easy to just pull on a pair of black leggings or jeans and throw on a dark coloured top/jumper. But ladies you should try mixing up your wardrobe and start adding colour, even if it’s just a couple of key items: like a scarf, pair of tights, or your shoes?

Let’s not be guilty of blending in anymore!

Dress Etiquette Tips for Women

* Remember, wear clothes that suit your body shape.

Shoulders: Broader shoulders should try and avoid shoulder pads and cap sleeves.

Legs: If you’re wider around your thighs, try to avoid tight-fitting trousers.

Shoes: It’s very important that the shoes fit you. Otherwise you’ll incur a lot of unwanted pain.

Painted toes: If you’re wearing open toe shoes, remember people see your feet, so make sure they’re painted!

Open-toe shoes: Not to be worn with nude tights. Wear a closed toe shoe if you must wear tights.

Hems: Make sure the hem is neat and there aren’t any stray stands. This can look messy.

Boobs or Legs?: You either opt to show your legs off or flaunt your chest, but it’s never both.

Low-cut Tops: It’s not very lady like to show too much of your chest, it’s distracting and can make people feel uneasy also.

Brightly Coloured Bras: Only should be worn in the right situation, not at work under a sheer shirt.

VPL: If you’re not a fan of the G-String, and would prefer slightly bigger smalls, but worry about showing your VPL. Why not opt for seamless knickers, they’re perfect for wearing under most garments and very comfortable too.

Animal Print: Can look cheap and dated. If you insist on wearing it, then make sure it’s strictly keep to one piece on your person at a time.

 

Tips to you on evening shoes

Tips to you on evening shoes

1. Don’t wear tights or stockings with an open-toed shoe, but remember to get those tootsies polished!

2. Cocktail dresses call out for beautiful shoes – but, for a long dress, the shoes are less important, they should always be pointy with a delicate heel, not some clumpy round toed Mary-Janes.

3. If your shoes are heavily embellished with diamonds, sequines or brocade they may catch on the hem of a long gown, so be warned!

4. You could dress up a court shoe with some shoes clips, or a pair of inexpensive diamante clip earrings, they work just as well. BUT…they are easily lost on the dance floor, hence the advice on getting something whose loss you won’t regret. You could always super-glue them for extra strength.
