Here we have Sam, who was in the Miss London final a couple of weeks back. We needed something to stand out from the rest. The green really popped and works well with her complexion. The dress is ruched at the side which is always flattering on as it pulls you in at the waist. Covered in sequins Sam sparkled all over as she worked it up on the stage. A big bold pair of diamante earrings and a statement bracelet, really pulled the outfit together She looks fantastic here, a true winner!
This blonde bombshell and fabulous actress, was seen on the red carpet last month, at the National TV Awards.
Hannah is wearing a navy jersey, deep plunging, heavily beaded neck line dress. This is a great dress to show of them curves, as the slinky jersey clings to all the right places and the deep v is just low enough that there is not too much cleavage on show. The long train adds a touch of elegance and always adds some drama for the red carpet. Teamed with a faux fur crisp white stole to keep of that winter chill.
She is wearing a chocolate brown, slightly embroidered ball gown, fitted at the waist and with a full skirt for added volume.
Dayna, you should have won an Oscar for ‘Best Dressed!’
Patricia, the lady on the right, is one of our regular customers.
She had a super exciting event to attend, the London Fitness Fashion Show at the 02 recently and see came third place.
Of course, she is wearing our knock out gold strapless dress, a true winner in our eyes!
The demure Rachel here wore our low back black jersey gown that ties at the back and hangs loosely. Worn to her leavers ball this Monday evening.
Such a grand photo, we hope she’ll be back in the future!
Check out this gorgeous young thing! This lovely lady had her school prom to attend and hired this gown for it.
She informed us that she won second best for her gown too, which of course we don’t doubt, as she looks absolutely knock out here.
It is said to have been discovered back in 3,900 B.C. in Armenia, in the form of a straw-woven skirt. These garments have been worn by men & women over the years in many different cultures. This is still alive today, some men in Scotland wear kilts, as do some Asian men wear what is called, the Dhoti or Lungi, a piece of material that is wrapped around the waist and knotted, resembling a skirt.
Women’s dresses started to become a lot more varied in the 19th century than in any other culture. Waistlines originally started under the bust, called the ‘Empire Silhouette’, and they started to drift towards the natural waist. The skirt had started of quite narrow, but was now moving towards styles like the Hoopskirt or Crinoline skirt. This was all taking place around 1860s.
Then, skirts took a radical change in the beginning of the 20th century – the hem was no longer at the floor. Around the 1920s skirts became short(er), then in the 1930s, long again. Then throughout the War, skirts became shorter as there was a fabric restriction at the time.
And of course what came into fashion in the 60s? The Miniskirt by Mary Quant. She had dared to create this item the measured normally no longer than 4inches below the bottom. These skirts were so popular, as they are today, worn by teenagers, young adults and can also be seen in sport, such as skaters, cheerleaders and tennis players.
You may want some help when doing this.
1. Stand straight with your feet together
2. Start at the top of your head and pull the measuring tape down to the floor (you may need some help with this)
3. Don’t wear shoes
1. Your waist is usually found 1inch above your bellybutton
2. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, not so tight so allowing you to breathe comfortably
1. Your hips are generally about 7” below your waist (depending on your size)
2. Looking in a mirror, find the widest part of your hips
3. The measuring tape should brush across both of your hipbones
1. You start by measuring at the back, from one edge of the shoulder socket to the next shoulder socket
1. Relax your arms
2. Keep your bra on, as you’re not measuring your bra size
3. Pull the tape around the back across the shoulder blades, then under your arms and across the fullest part of your bust – take measurement
* Remember, wear clothes that suit your body shape.
Shoulders: Broader shoulders should try and avoid shoulder pads and cap sleeves.
Legs: If you’re wider around your thighs, try to avoid tight-fitting trousers.
Shoes: It’s very important that the shoes fit you. Otherwise you’ll incur a lot of unwanted pain.
Painted toes: If you’re wearing open toe shoes, remember people see your feet, so make sure they’re painted!
Open-toe shoes: Not to be worn with nude tights. Wear a closed toe shoe if you must wear tights.
Hems: Make sure the hem is neat and there aren’t any stray stands. This can look messy.
Boobs or Legs?: You either opt to show your legs off or flaunt your chest, but it’s never both.
Low-cut Tops: It’s not very lady like to show too much of your chest, it’s distracting and can make people feel uneasy also.
Brightly Coloured Bras: Only should be worn in the right situation, not at work under a sheer shirt.
VPL: If you’re not a fan of the G-String, and would prefer slightly bigger smalls, but worry about showing your VPL. Why not opt for seamless knickers, they’re perfect for wearing under most garments and very comfortable too.
Animal Print: Can look cheap and dated. If you insist on wearing it, then make sure it’s strictly keep to one piece on your person at a time.
