Autumn/Winter Fashion Trends





We are loving lace this season! From contemporary mesh patterns, laser cut fabric
and floral vintage designs we've got it all. Romantic, feminine and sexy; lace has the ability
to make you feel both sophisticated and special. Nothing says that better than our blue floral
lace dress, which oozes 1950s charm and dramatic attitude all in one. Team it with crystals
and diamante for a night out or contrast with leather for a more casual look.
Whichever way you style it, you'll feel glamorous and up for a party. Get the girls and go!



This Jacquard French Connection Dress showcases sumptuous velvet in all its glory!
We are now well and truly embracing this fantastic A/W trend and the autumnal season.
Not only do we love the soft, rich texture of the fabric but we love the subtle print
and wrap skirt in this party dress. It makes a great transitional piece that takes you
from day to night and looks fab paired with metallic accessories. 



Gothic fashion has been resurrected this autumn in the shape of heavily
dramatic accessories and theatrical lace. Mix with denim jackets or tweed
for a modern updated look. We can rely on our lace cameo flapper headband
and lace pendent headband to add some drama into our lives. Opt for
blackcurrant or burgundy lipstick to create even more impact. 

                 



70s style maxi dresses are still all the rage this season. Flattering and glam
they have the ability to make you look an inch taller and feel classy yet sensual.
We love this pink beaded maxi dress for its beautiful beading and intricate
jewelled bodice. Imagine wafting across the dance floor in this pretty
ice pink number. Great for that special occasion and for making a entrance
at the office party




More is definitely MORE this season. Beading, sequins and embellishment
is the way forward. Wear sequins from top to toe this month and be a proper
party girl with our latest collection of beaded beauties.

Fresher Survival Guide






Rule 1 - The Padlock

One of the 'key' things to remember to pack for fresher's week
is a padlock! An essential item, that will stop your flatmates pinching
your precious jammy dodgers and homemade stew your mum made
the night before . It's good to be prepared. Or you could just give them
a hint with these cute Vintage Padlock Earrings.









Rule 2 - Talking Point Clothes

When you're feeling all shy and nervous on the first day, it's always a great
idea to wear something that stands out and can become a talking point.
Think about it, you'd want to talk to the girl with the fab floral print dress
or bright quirky necklace. People, will be asking you where you got this 
one in no time.


Rule 3 - The Shopper

You will be doing a lot of endless trips to the shops - supermarket to buy pot noodles,
book shops for those lecture essentials and the off licence for, well everything in there!
So, you are going to NEED this Showpony Clarissa Eco Shopper bag , trust me!
You will long for the days mum and dad did the weekly food shop.
Check out the rest of our should bag collection here






Rule 4 - Fancy Dress

Load up on supplies of neon body paint because themed club
nights and society socials will take up the majority of your spare time.
Save any brightly coloured tops, plastic glasses and garish makeup
because you never know when they'll come in useful.
There will be bucket loads of 80s themed parties. Don't worry when
the occasion arises we have got you covered.
Check out our collection of brightly themed outfits here: Brights






Rule 5 - An Outfit a Night

You are more than likely going to have the most nights out you
have ever had in your life this fresher week, so you are going to
need shed loads of pretty outfits. Be prepared and stock up,
because god forbid you are wearing them same outfit as the
girl next door to you in halls!  Wear yours with a vintage twist.

Beam me up Hottie!

We love it when technology makes fashion more gorgeous and we are even more thrilled when we can sneak it into our vintage style dresses collection! Laser cutting is seriously hot right now and with brands like Self Portrait making sparks, it was only a matter of time before the High Street muscled in on the action.


Self-Portrait 


The glory of laser cutting is the intricate lace inspired patterns that can be created and the current trend of mounting these on nude layers add a seriously sexy overall look.

We have finally been able to introduce some pieces to our new season collection including this pretty spectacular laser cut black playsuit. Oh-so seventies with those bell sleeves and full of playful details, this 1970s style playsuit is a party dress alternative that will knock yours socks off.





If you are more of a classic chick, or are looking to imitate the current catwalk looks, then go for our lace prom dress in black or blue - these stunning vintage style prom dresses are still Mad Men gorgeous but that cut out detail and daring neckline, make these dresses one of the hottest styles we have ever stocks.

So, while you are dancing in those night club lasers, bring a little laser action to your vintage style dress too!

See you at the funfair: candyfloss, lollipops and lemons


We're off to the fairground with these carnival style summer picks! Capturing the candy cool atmosphere of the funfair, the carousels and teacups, lollipops and circus themed rides, we're just set to experience the thrill! It may not be pennies for the rides anymore but our retro wonders are definitely taking us back to the good old days...

The longer days and nicer weather (okay, so we meant ten minutes of sun in-between downpours!) mean you can kit yourself out in kitch and ride that helter skelter in style! Our Gold Shell Clutch oozes the vintage glamour of those 1920s circus girls, paired with the Lucas Jack Gold Star Cuff and you'll be glittering with gold, flapper style. We know our Lemon Print Playsuit will look oh-so-cute at the coconut shy, and our Lolly Pop Print Prom Dress matches the sweet scent of cotton candy and will have the crowd oohing and aahing underneath the big wheel!

Flapper girl for a day: RMV does the movies

Our very own Marie recently took part as an extra in the filming of an independent project run by the production company Six O's Studio, where she spent the day masquerading as a flirty flapper! Located in a 1920s cafe beautifully named 'The Cafe Wisteria', the scene is set for hero Peter Pendragon to meet the love of his life, who also happens to be his nemesis...


An array of fringing and feathers, glimmering sequins, twenties props and luxurious beading decorated the glorious scene. It was a lavish trip back in time to the opulent elegance of the jazz age, with every actor head-to-toe in Gatsby style glamour and the location adorned with all of the flapper era extravagance you could ever dream of. Our flapper dress and diamante clutch bag totally complimented the dazzling decadence of the scene.

You can find further information about Six O's Studio over on their Twitter. Check out photos from the day below...

This Wilbur and Gussie Edith Clutch adds that extra shimmer to our fringe flapper dresses
