Add a pop of colour to your winter wardrobe with this beauty of a blouse from Denmark.  Now in stock in sizes XS-L, tie it as shown or higher as pussy bow blouse.  Dress it up or down.  Very nice.

A woolly window for the weekend

Two Danes

Winter has finally arrived, it’s currently 10c in Haslemere.  We don’t mind, we like the change of seasons and like to have cooler weather when we’re supposed to have it.  Time for a window with warm stuff.  Two Danes takes centre stage with its 100% lambswool pieces in silver grey and denim blue.

Maison Anje

And this angora/wool blend cardigan/jacket with lurex detail from French brand, Maison Anje, is rather beautiful.  And warm. £110.00 just a fiew pieces in S/M and M/L.  Also available in a nut brown colourway.

Mind your head

Everyone said we were mad when we found this site 9.5 years ago.  However, we loved the layout of the shopfloor and uncovered this wonderful original ceramic floor which was hidden under a layer of filthy carpet tiles.  We laid pine floor boards and painted them white.  Here’s a view from one end of the shopfloor to another end.  The building is L-shaped.

From the same position but looking the other way.  This building started life as a pub in the 18th century.  We didn’t want standard shop fittings so we sourced (with the expert help of Annie & Katherine from Holly Park) original furniture for display purposes.

Last week’s window

002

I expect you’re all going to be sick of leopard print this time next year judging by the amount we’ve seen on the high street and smaller shops.  However, this Saint Tropez shift dress can be worn as a dress as shown or open as a long coat (tie the belt at the back to pull it in).  You’ll still be wearing this next summer with bleached jeans and trainers.  £59.99.

ps: Cream jumper of joy is Maison Anje – a deceptively soft blend of angora and wool.  £110.00

Her moves are better than Theresa May’s

Here’s the gorgeous Jan showing us her moves wearing the sweater with stars on the sleeves.  Now in stock in 4 great colours, £60.00 (one size to fit most).  50% cashmere/50% Wool. ps: just pop into the washing machine on a handwash setting 30 degrees, voila!

 

Flatlay a la Woodie & Morris

007

Last week’s flatlay featuring Lysee leggings in buffed suede, our very own cashmere poncho jmper and a pair of those leather sneakers from France (but made in Portugal).  Very comfortable, true to size and offering good support with a dose of style.  £95.00

61 days until Christmas

012

Can you guess what these are?  Believe it or not they are lint rollers which are the perfect size to pop into a handbag or briefcase.  You simply screw the bottom and up it pops.  £12.00 now in stock in lots of bright colours and a useful stocking filler for either sex.

051

The first but not the last of our Christmas present edit.  Boxes of socks which are beautifully packaged in an assortment of colours and finishes.  £19.95.  Check out the glittery ones and the star motif ones are rather special too.

Sneakers with Stars

223

Another new brand for us.  Vintage leather sneakers with star detail.  Available in a metallic silver grey or a dark blue.  YESSSS…..

Made in Italy so that’s nice.  I popped a pair on as soon as the box was delivered this afternoon and I can confirm they are very comfottable and true to size.  Sizes 4-8 (sorry, no size 3 available).  £95.00

Boiler Suit update

214

We are just about to place our order for this stylish piece from Lithuania.  This is a 98% cotton dark blue denim version and it will retail at £120.00.  Just awaiting clarification on colour options but we LOVE it.  I used to wear a pink one in my teens and it is strange how fashions come around again. It will be the winter version of the linen dungarees I have LIVED in all summer.  No guesses for who is going to be first in line for a pair of these….
