‘Hi,

I enjoyed visiting One Night Stand. It was a lot of fun trying on different dresses that I would never normally dare to wear.. And I did feel glamorous during the party itself.

It’s also great not to have to find more closet space for a dress which, lovely as it is, I would only ever wear a couple of times in a lifetime!

thanks

BAFTA


It’s that time of year again, where award winning actors and actresses are credited for their performances throughout the year. But I can’t bypass this blog-post without a mention of the glamorous, show stopping, jaw dropping, evening dresses that grace the red carpet every February. It’s black tie at its finest. And we are lucky to say, we have some of our own attending this prestigious event.

Keep on the lookout for photos from the event.

Brick and Mortar


Our lovely Margaret, is wearing the deep black, off the shoulder, rose pattern long ball gown.

‘Hi Joanna

This email is well overdue, but I wanted to thank you for your help with a dress for the charity ball I attended in November. The dress attracted so many compliments, both from friends and from people I didn’t know – on one occasion a young man came up to me and said his girlfriend wanted to tell me what a stunning dress I had on, but wasn’t able to as she had a bad case of hiccups, so she had sent him to tell me lol! Many people said it was the best dress at the ball. I really enjoyed wearing the dress, and I told everyone who commented where I had got it from, so I hope I have generated some new business for you. I will definitely be back for next year’s ball gown.

Have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards

Margaret’
