Like it or loathe it – LOVE is the theme for February, with St Valentines round the corner. Who better to adorn our windows than The Queen of Hearts?!
Pop by sometime and you’ll find flamingos, fancy pink and red frocks and some white roses that need to be painted red….
The Queen of Hearts has her vintage heels complete with gold crowns, velvet bolero and red evening gown.
We have plenty of romantic vintage gift ideas for your loved one – or indeed yourself!
From lingerie to records and Alice inspired jewellery – lots of lovely treats in store!

We had a fab day last week providing our styling services to two talented photographers at their studio in Lymintgon, so we thought we’d share some behind the scenes pics from our day of dressing!
The photographers were Nick Bayley and Nickie Westlake who were producing a set of 1950′s inspired fashion portraits, and we were delighted to be on board with our vintage attire. accessories and styling assistance!
The first model, the beautiful Katy, had her hair and make up styled by Mary Kay pro Robyn Vallender for an Audrey Hepburn inspired first look, a’la Breakfast at Tiffany’s, looking striking in the natural studio sunlight.
Katy also donned a 50′s style black and white gingham dress, pearls and one of our black and white beaded evening gowns for different looks.
Second model of the Day, the stunning Helen was next to be transformed into a glamorous 1950′s version of herself in our polka dot dress…
Designer Colin Becke 1950′s silk dress ….
…and royal blue lace toile effect maxi gown – all for sale in the shop!
Can’t wait to see the final edits, we will share them with you when we get them!
