Welcome to the Cheltenham Shop

Welcome to the Cheltenham Shop

I have finally opened the shop doors to the streets and promenades of Cheltenham.
Nestled in the Suffolks, just around the corner from the bustle of Montpellier, this independent quarter, full of boutiques, bakeries and blooms has welcomed me with opened arms.

'Tis The Season For Velvet

'Tis The Season For Velvet

We have always been obsessed with this truly sumptuous fabric. Not only is it a great textile to keep one warm and snug during those winter months, it also creates an extremely flattering, elegant and sensuous silhouette. Whether velvet is the main element of a dress or shown on a cuff of a sleeve or a collar, this fabric makes one feel sophisticated and desired. Or perhaps velvet is seen on your favourite accessory, those small touches complete your chosen outfit. The perfect Christmas gift, there is always a place for velvet to shine under those festive lights.

The Sculptural Bullet Bra

The Sculptural Bullet Bra

The Bullet Bra is the most remarkable piece of underwear and launched itself onto the fashion scene in the 1950's. After World War II Women were ready to reclaim their bodies and embrace all aspects of their femininity. This started with their careful selection of lingerie and inspiration was taken from the introduction of Dior's "New Look" which posed women with rounded hips, cinched in waistlines and prominent breasts.
