Top 2 trends for your wardrobe this spring

Dark Romance vs Prairie-chic

Erdem SS16

We're mixing serene angels with rebel cowgirls this spring, and we think the white lace prairie dress looks super hot with on-trend black leather pointy cowgirl boots, witchy style! Complete the look with a floppy festival hat and a badass biker jacket and you know this will be your best band-watching outfit for the warmer (we hope!) weather.

Underwear as Outerwear

Burberry Prorsum SS16



From the boudoir to the ball, this summer we're styling lacy delicates with party accessories and showing them off! Our pink lace flapper has all the dreamy bed-time glamour, but with a party dress twist. Finished off with coral hoop earrings and some summery sandals, this look will take you from bedroom to boho in no time!

Style Steal: Zooey Deschanel


Our style steal this week is the oh-so-retro Zooey Deschanel. We're in love with her whimsical looks on the set of New Girl and those tea dresses are to die for! She's the absolute queen of the cardigan, layering spots and stripes and mixing delightful geek chic vintage and modern style perfectly. 

Go nautical like Zooey in our Polka Dot Prom Dress, for full on fifties swing! Complete the look with the cute Tatty Devine Anchor Brooch or Red Swallow Earrings and cinch in that waist with our Big Bow Red Belt. Why not finish with our dainty Numph Gloria Gloves in black and marvel at your brand spanking new kitsch wardrobe additions!

Don't let those dark clouds get you down...style it out!

You probably mourned the loss of a whole range of umbrellas lately, even that pretty polka dot one you were convinced would totally stand up to those gale force winds. We're sad about this too. Don't worry though, you might not know it yet, but this grey weather is a stormy style opportunity!

Embrace those subtle greys and dark hues, those moody blues and mystic purples with our new Dark Clouds trend. From soft grey clutch bags to midnight black brooches, we've got it all! Keep your hands warm in our elegant wool gloves with faux leather button detail, team up with a weather-friendly scarf and embrace those April showers!

5 things Bridget Jones taught us about life

If you’re the girl that once walked from the train station to work with your skirt tucked in your tights, blissfully unaware of your mistake, we know you’ll be just as excited as us about the return of our fave dear diary! Bridget Jones is made up of a little bit of us all, making our way through life with smudged mascara, broken heels and cringeworthy flashbacks. She makes it all OK.

This is why we’re super happy she’s back! So pop your onesie on (it’s totally okay if it’s reindeer print – yes we know Christmas was ages ago!), grab that tub of ice cream and let’s have a good look back at the lady we love just as she is, and the life lessons she taught us.

1. Christmas jumpers are kinda cool. 

Yes, that itchy number your Nana knitted you circa December 1993, just shows how you can absolutely let yourself go and embrace the holiday spirit! Don’t be such a killjoy! That guy dressed in jingling tinsel fuzz might just be the love of your life.



2. It’s actually great to be single! 

Look how much fun Bridget has, in-between the tears, trying to find her perfect man. Those smug marrieds might have uber amazing dinner party skills but your partying talents are now beyond perfect. PLUS you can take as long as you want to get ready! No one there to remind you that the taxi was booked over an hour ago. Oh the sweet silence…



3. Being set up by a family member might be a good thing. 

Mark Darcy happens to like Bridget just as she is which means that Pam definitely chose a good match there.



4. Always re-check the theme of the costume party. 

Turning up dressed full on catwoman to an elegant masked ball is not the best start to a great night out. Yes...we're talking from experience.



5. Everyone has imperfections. You’re totally cool, big pants, and all of it.

Go on, look at yourself. You're amazing. Just as you are.

Think Unique: Alternative Bridesmaid Ideas For Your Wedding Day

Yes we know the bride is the babe of the ball but we shouldn't forget the best mates! The bridesmaids will want to strut their stuff too, they are on display ALL DAY…so why not give them something to show off? Styling your bridesmaids in vintage style will give you a completely unique bridal party. It’s one of the most memorable days of your whole entire life, so go ahead and make it uber-special by creating something no one else will have…

We know some of you love your girls to be all matchy-matchy, but if your dreams are made of rainbows, why not try different colours together? You can vary by style and even by fabric.

What a cool alternative idea for bridesmaids! (via rocknrollbride.com)

We totally love the idea of teaming your bridesmaids up with similar style dresses in different colours! Take a look at our lace dresses below...


You could even try different styles, same colour. This makes it super easy to cater for all your girls, by letting them wear a dress to suit their shape!


Pink your thing? Our dusky tones make the perfect colour coordinates!

Does a theme take your fancy? We've got all the bridesmaid dresses you need, from 1920s flapper styles to 1960s go-go girl. If you don’t feel at one with an era…why not follow one of the hottest trends of the season and mix your spots and stripes, patterns and prints?

We adore this pattern combo! (via modernwedding.com.au)

Try mixing and matching our vintage style prints for a wedding as unique as the dresses themselves!


Not a fan of pattern fusion, why not flaunt some florals?

Our floral dresses are bound to make your gals feel fabulous!

If the bridal gown search has left you panic stricken then why not leave the creativity to your leading ladies and let them choose their own dresses? Decide on your theme, colour or pattern and send them on a treasure hunt treat…sorted. That once reluctant bridesmaid is now totally buzzing in her new fancy frock she found herself!
