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….

 

Cashmere is coming

Woodie & Morris cashmere poncho jumper

We’ve just placed our order for this W&M Cashmere Poncho Jumper.  Should be here in early November and this is a brand new colour option, Umber (think slate grey).  Annabel wearing the shorter version (same as last year) but please note we have added another 3 inches to make a second longer version.  Price on this to be confirmed but we can tell you that the shorter one will remain the same price as last year £250.00 which is not bad going considering the price of cashmere has risen.

ps: When I compare cashmere prices on other well known brands, I KNOW this garment offers tremendous VALUE for money bearing in mind weight and amount of cashmere.  One of the benefits of sourcing direct and cutting out the middleman.

Colours ordered in both lengths include:

Umber, Navy Blue, Dark Oatmeal, Winter White, Peacock, Dark Green, Black, Coral, Lemon, Charcoal Grey, Blue, bubblegum Pink

Another knitwear label…..from France

Maison Anje

It’s good to ring the changes every season and welcome to newcomer, Maison Anje from France. Cosy knitwear in soft natural blends get our vote.  Annabel wearing a shorter sweater style in a rich cream.  It has pockets too.  Throw this one over jeans, dresses, skirts, culottes…you name it.

Maison Anje

A jacket cum cardigan with lurex trim detail in pale grey or a chocolate colourway.  £110.00

Still buying stuff for this season

195

This Danish brand has been on our radar for a short while.  Anyway, we finally got around to taking a closer look at it yesterday and we liked what we found.  The collection does remind us a little of a previous W&M brand, American Vintage.

Knitwear is 100% Merino Wool which is both machine washable and guess what? You can put it in the tumble dryer too.  Ginny wearing a cotton A-line T-shirt in yellow – we have ordered this style in a variety of colours.

A dropped shoulder v-neck sweater from the same label.  All the garments are made in DENMARK by the way.  There is a wide range of colour options available to order but we have placed a modest order for about 5 styles to start with.  Due in 5 weeks and we can then repeat and choose lots of different colours.  Watch this space, we think you’re going to like it A LOT.  Sizes Small to XXL availability.  Ginny modelling the size Medium in this gorgeous pink/lavender shade.

And this wrap style dress with delicate edging in Merino.  A wonderful dark green colourway. Ginny wearing a size medium sample so we guess this style will come up smaller than some of the others.

Stars in their…..sleeves

Not a fan of a skinny jean?  These might float your boat.  A cropped culotte leg denim in a vibrant red (with a touch of coral) with white stitching detail.  £38.00 in sizes XS-L.  Annabel wearing size Small and a Navy Fleece Funnel Neck Jumper which is £35.00native youth red denim jacket

A matching denim jacket £65.00 – seen here with the SaintTropez sweater dress in black.  Annabel wearing a size M in this dress as she prefers a looser fit.  Just add tights and trainers.

 

Getting ready for cooler days

native youth

Charcoal ribbed sweaters and ribbed skirts in sizes XS-L.  A nothing natural blend but feels great at a great pricepoint.  Charcoal Grey only, the skirt is £38.00 and the jumper is £32.00 ps no need to wear them together, they’ll work just as well separately. Slouchy ribbed pants £40.00 – slip these on when you get home and you’ll be very happy.

A rail full of shirts, why not?

141

We re-merchandise the rails once a week and there’s nothing more satisfying than a nice rail which isn’t overloaded.  Personally speaking, if I walk into a shop and the rail has too much on it, I walk out without looking.  It’s not rocket science but that’s the way we roll.  Anyway, I digress.

Our final delivery from Milano has arrived (it’s a German brand just in case you were wondering) and it features some shirts/blouses in great colours.  All sizes currently in stock.
