A collection inspired by stately homes, Downton Abbey, My Fair Lady, "Mr. Selfridge" and a romantic Edwardian era, long gone by but not forgotten. Feminine silk mix dresses with matching jackets in prints which bloom as dusk draws in. Tiny spots and broderie anglaise combine on flattering pleated co-ords, and next week, royal blue butterflies float on cool silk in the most eye-turning three piece. I am reminded of the races, with cute little feather trimmed hats and matching suede and leather pumps-special wide fitting collection with gold toe-caps and heels.

Navy lace faux wrap dress has 3/4 sleeves and a little twinkle for a lovely lady like knee length dress--or for the grandest entrance, look out for our twinkly stretch lace evening dress with low back and fishtail skirt. Perfect for your entrance to the Oscars. Picked a sleeveless dress, look out for our navy "sleeves" designed to wear underneath that sleeveless shift, for a filmy cover to that perrenial problem -the underarm bulge, not very flatteringly called "bingo wings", or try our amazing chiffon cape in best selling colour navy but also available in silver grey, ivory or black, shaped to add a flattering cover to add a touch of seduction.

Our vintage range will join our watercolour range, launched last week into store-a diverse cornucopia of opal poppies, lace and jersey.
