I Believe in the Power of Clothes!

I believe in the power of clothes. Ever woke up one morning only to look in the mirror and feel an overwhelming feeling of disappointment that the reflection staring back is fatter, frumpier and more tired looking than the mental image you have of yourself? To dress in your usual clothes and feel them just a bit tighter than last time? It’s easy to let the dowdiness take over, to go with the flow and become consumed by the “fat” feeling. It can ruin your whole day and leave you feeling really bad about yourself. I think clothes are the remedy, clothes can make you feel utterly fabulous! Reach into your wardrobe and choose an outfit that makes you feel special. No; not your wedding dress, or your favourite Saturday night outfit, something thats suitable for the occasion (work, shopping, whatever) but something that makes you feel lovely, so that everytime you look down at yourself you think ” I love this top/ skirt/ dress/ scarf etc” Choose a colour you love to wear. Add details to your outfit that personalize it and say somewthing about you, a scarf, piece of jewelry or brooch. I find I use brooches an aweful lot they are an easy way to change the mood of an outfit and can introduce a new colour the overall look. They nearly always draw attention and get a comment from someone; and lets face it, if someone takes the time to tell you they like what you’re wearing it makes you feel like a million dollars. The power of clothes are amazing! I feel better already 🙂

Prom Queen

It’s Prom season and my cousin Amelia has just had her Y11 school Prom and we’re all proud and delighted that she was voted as Prom Queen. She is totally thrilled!
The run up to Prom is a tense time for any student, the course you’ve been studying may be over but its exam season (always stressfull!) on top of the fact that you have to decide what to wear, what to arrive in and will anyone be wearing the same dress ???!!
We’re well into the Prom season and students across the land have been planning the perfect outfit, striving for something eyecatching and unique. This is the inspiration for our latest pieces. We’ve been experimenting with smaller scale corsages in paler colours which can be put onto hair clips, hair bobbles and Alice bands; to wear as a fascinator. Or on a strap to be worn as a wrist Prom corsage. We’ve also been trying out some necklace designs, incorporting flowers, pearls and suffolk puffs. The beauty of having a corsage made of felt is that it will last much longer than Prom night and can be worn for years to come. A lasting memory of a lovely evening!
