5 weeks until Christmas


Time to display a few Christmassy bits and bobs but not yet time to do our Christmas windows, that traditionally happens on/around the 1st December.  How about a glittery owl or two to hang on your tree?  Two for £5.00, now that’s a nice price.  Pop in to check out the colour options.

Silk from Spain

silk scarves colores de otono

A dressier but less bulky scarf from Spain in 100% silk.  Very pretty prints and colours and be warned, just one piece per colour.  Remarkably good value at £35.00

A silk/wool version in different prints has also hit the shopfloor, these are £45.00.  We like different, these are different.

Subtle sparkle from Samsoe

samsoe & samsoe sparkle sweatersSamsoe and Samsoe have struck again.  It’s a shame it’s so difficult to capture the slight sparkle in these angora blend sweaters but you’ll understand why when you see them in the flesh.  A Christmas version of their Autumn style which literally flew off the rails in different colours earlier in the season.  A shorter shape which seems to work for those who prefer a more cropped shape above the hips.

A re-stock on the popular Ozzy Star Biker jeans in a gunmetal waxed finish ( and great to wear when it is very cold too we understand).  A mid-rise fit which looks lovely on and true to size. Wear with sneakers or ankle boots.

Pendants in a Pot


Little gemstone pendants on gold or silver chains.  Beautifully presented in little glass pots,  Suitable for ladies of all ages and very nicely priced at £20.00.

The star theme continues

star wrapping paper

Just in case you are standing by the till and need a roll of very nice wrapping paper, £1.85.

star v neck cashmere blend sweaters

More stars on sweaters.  This V-Neck sweater is a slouchy shape but has a tighter sleeve to balance it out.  Available in a variety of different colours including grey with orange and navy with pink and oatmeal with black.  £55.00  A cashmere/wool blend.

embossed star sweaters

A more subtle star sweater style just in.  A less slouchy shape which will work better for some. Also available in navy, red and khaki green.  £45.00  Just one size.

New week, new window

cashmere poncho tops with sleeves

We’re marking the start of another new week with a window full of cashmere, our W&M cashmere. We don’t know about you but LOVE a spot of bright colour in the darker winter months.  How good do these cashmere pieces look in our window?  These old pub windows aren’t the easiest to dress and these bright colours really make a statement.  Just add a scarf or piece of jewellery and dress down with leggings and trainers or skinny jeans and heels.  A really versatile one-size piece which you’ll wear over and over again.  £155.00 for 12 guage, 2 ply 100% machine washable cashmere.

Woohoo! Cosy corner just got brighter…

cashmere colours

A colourful corner near the till.  Featuring our 100% machine washable cashmere.  Just gorgeous. There should be a colour to suit everyone (fingers crossed).  Here is a peek of the colours available in the poncho top with ribbed sleeves.  The neckline is slightly different this season which we think works better. Less likely to slip off your shoulder.  You’re most welcome…£155.00

Outfit Ideas with YAYA, Samsoe & Samsoe & MoshMosh

yaya vekvet parka

I have two good coats (one of which is over 20 years old and still going strong, a Nicole Farhi) but I don’t have a casual parka style coat.  Guess what I tried on the other day and went home in? This Navy velvet padded parka from YAYA which is £159.95.   We’e paired it here with a hot pink sweater from Samsoe & Samsoe which is is slightly sparkly (difficult to photograph) and a pair of Athena Slim Jeans in Blue which are a NOOS (never out of stock) style at £89.00.  The MoshMosh NOOS styles are just brilliant because we can top up on the best selling shapes throughout the season as required.

This  Samsoe & Samsoe sweater is a shorter shape in a super soft Angora mi with a subtle sparkle lurex twist. It will fit below the waistbad but above your hips we suspect.  Also available in pale grey  and navy blue. £134.95



samsoe and samsoe mano top silver sequin

I think this is the BEST sequin top we’ve ever had in the shop.  That’s saying something after 8.5 years!  Just stunning.  It’s the Mano Top in silver from Danish label Samsoe & Samsoe.  Sling it under a jacket, wear with jeans or dress it up for an occasion with tailored black trousers.  You’ll be wearing this in the summer too.

An investment piece at £94.95 but just amazing.

We’ve paired it with this super soft short knit cardigan/jacket, see below.  We really like the shorter top over the longer sequin shape.  Super warm knitwear in a mix of 80% Yak Wool and 20% Merino. £129.95.
