Ebony & Ivory


Two weeks today until our last day at our Wellingborough shop before we move to online only sales, so we have our massive clearance sale on in store and online. Make sure you grab your bargains!

Was perusing the catalogues of some potential new suppliers yesterday, including Religion and Disney accessories, and La Dee Da handbags. So much nice stuff, so we're very excited about the future!

Had my photo taken this morning for the Northants Evening Telegraph. We'll be in it on Monday, so have a look! Just wish they hadn't caught me halfway through my coffee, having just eaten breakfast, covered in grease with smudged lipgloss (I was saved by my Barry M Glossy Tube!).

Today's Pick Of The Day is one of the pieces in our huge clearance sale! This Monsalina Chic White & Black Mini Dress was £35 originally but is now only £19! The black with white version has already sold out, so get in quick and grab one of these (we have a few sizes left). Monsalina Chic has become a much loved label among our customers, due to it's fantastic quality, classic designs, and great value. This dress is beautifully tailored, with an elasticated back for the perfect fit. It also comes with clear straps that can be attached to the dress for a bit of extra security, or can be put onto a multiway bra if you prefer. This one looks fantastic with a tan, so claim yours then get out in the garden (with a sensible factor sun cream!).

Have a great weekend. We're out tonight to check out The Snakeman 3 and The Mobbs playing Retro-Beat at The Horseshoe down the road. Maybe see you there!

Flower Power


Continuing the flower theme from yesterday today, as festival season has started and it's time to indulge your inner boho hippy (not if you're off to Download this weekend, though!).

Got another busy admin day today, so it's another brief post. I promise, I will have more to tell you tomorrow.

Pick Of The Day today is this handmade Maddie 60's Shopper in Floral, £15.00. As it's handmade, it's unique. This one is composed of assorted floral fabrics in orange, purple, yellow, green and pink. It's a really good size for carrying your stuff around with you, and perfect for festivals or picnics!

Have a great day!

Hope you all had a good weekend!

Quick blog today before I get on with all the admin!

Today's Pick Of The Day is this JP Jewellery Cross & Flower Charm Bracelet, £20.00. It's handmade and a one-off, so you'll never see another like it. It's decorated with leaf, flower and cross charms and lots of other sparkly bits!

It's the weekend! And we're not hungover today (always a good start!). Anyone up to anything exciting?

Busy day yesterday. We are now out of stock of the Yumi Meila Lace Tea Dress in black in Medium, but we still have it in Small and Large, or in the other colours. It's a really versatile vintage-look dress (I love mine!). We are also down to our last one of the Monsalina Chic Black & White Mini Dress so if you're a size 10, snap this one up (we do have a few more sizes left in the White & Black version).

Our Pick Of The Day today is this oh so pretty Iska Raka Skirt Dress, on sale for only £20.00! It's got a black lace top part, beautiful ruffled pink skirt, and ties at the back. It's a great party dress for the Summer, or would even be fantastic bargain for a prom. Iska is by Uttam, the people behind the gorgeous Yumi label, so you know you're getting something fantastic and distinctive. So maybe now is the time to be pretty in pink?

Have a great weekend!
