YAYA silky top with contrast cuffs

We sold one of these yesterday, it looks fabulous when it’s on.  We particularly like the contrasting colours on the cuff.  Dress it down with denim or dress it up for an evening out, perfect.  Available in a soft silvery grey (as shown) or navy.  £65.00 and available in a range of different sizes.  You could also wear the top with a pair of these jersey print pants.  A pull-on style in a subtle blue print.  We’ll be wearing these with sneakers and a loose knit until it turns warmer.  Wear it with a simple white shirt when summer arrives. Add a jacket for a smarter look.  The trousers are also £65.00

New Season YAYA – a taster

YAYA excels at producing beautiful basics, this button back sweater is a soft washed blue is a great example.  A scoop neck style with button back detail in 100% cotton.  The type of garment you’ll have in your wardrobe for yonks as YAYA is all machine washable at 30c.  We’ve stocked this brand for nearly 8 years and you all say it washes like a dream.  Can’t ask for more than that eh? £45.00 in limited numbers in a rangd of different sizes.


They’re also very good at designing garments with little twists – this stripe cotton v-neck sweater is a good example.  check out the dropped sleeve detail on this one.

In the pink with Masai Spring 2017

The Spring 2017 collection from Masai is the strongest we’ve seen for a while – we believe the original designer who left the brand 4 years ago is back and the results are evident in this collection.  Lovely colours, feminine shapes without too much frill.  Masai is a brand who understands a woman’s shape and we’re pleased to report that the prices are down slightly too.

Here’s the first of the new Masai arrivals, this Tenini waterfall coat in a soft pink, £134.00  Sling it on with jeans or a dress and you’re sorted.  We like the fact that Masai has also used an older model, hurrah!

Masai Clothing Tenini coat in woodrose

Pair it with something like this, a subtle stripe a-lined jersey top in a soft pink (called Woodrose) and white trousers when it gets warmer.  3/4 length sleeves, scoop neck and a great shape for everyone. £50.00

Masai Devil Stripe Top in pink

And finally, here’s a long a-lined cotton shirt shape with pockets in a pretty print.  This is the Gabonis tunic, £66.00  Wear it over leggings, add a shorter croped knit and add trainers.  Wear it with white trousers or bare legs and sandals later in the season.

Enjoying the new Weaver Green delivery

Weaver Green rugs and floor cushions

We love this brand.  Such a clever concept.  Textiles made out of recycled plastic bottles which as well as being environmentally friendly also means that it’s all machine washable, stain resistant (red wine even comes out apparently) and looks ruddy lovely.  All the look and feel of a traditional wool fabric.

Morris admiring the latest product, a beautiful tribal inspired floor cushion.  A selection of rugs in different sizes and prints are also back in stock so make sure you pop in to check it all out.  Bags back in stock as well, £45.00  The rugs start at £40.00 and we can order in different prints and colours as required.

New cushion styles will be delivered in April which retail at around £25.00 – a great partner for the blankets and throws in soft colours.

Another new brand coming from Berlin

milano italy shirts and blouses

We went looking for pretty blouses and shirts in bright prints and colours and we found them.  This German brand has a loyal following and it’s not hard to see why.  This is a sneaky peek of some of the collection for a/w 2017 which is due for delivery in June.  A great use of natural fabrics including cotton, viscose and tencel silk in a wide range of sizes from 36-48.  The brand also offers a NOS (never out of stock) service on a range of collared shirts.  This brand ticks all our buying boxes. RRP £59.95 approximately.
