Clothes Show Live 2011

Our final piece of news - we've just signed up to exhibit at Clothes Show Live 2011, which is on at the NEC from 2nd to 7th December. It's something we've fancied doing for some time, especially since it is local to us, so this year we have finally taken the plunge and we can't wait!

We're going to be in the Blue Zone, as part of Anita's Vintage Fair alongside loads of other amazing vintage companies. If you've never been to the Clothes Show then why not join us and make this your first visit - alone with the most amazing shopping ever there is a huge catwalk show, a hair salon giving you a chance to get your hair cut by a top stylist, hair and beauty demonstrations, make overs and celebrity appearances. A fun day out and a chance to get your Christmas shopping sorted too!

Strawberry Fields Festival

We spent the August bank holiday weekend at Strawberry Fields festival in Leicestershire. When Sabina of Sutton Vintage and Arts Fair told us she was organising the Strawberry Glam Vintage Tent at the festival, we knew we had to get involved!

The other traders in the tent included Rebecca Louise, who had created an official bracelet set for the festival, beautiful ethical fashion from Annie Greenabelle, cute jewellery from Laura Loves and Prudence Collins Design, great T shirts from Daisy Chain, as well as great vintage collections from Mad Elizabeth, Vintage Revolver and Roxy Valetta. It was not to be missed

The weekend was a little chilly and damp but that didn't stop the fun, it was a really friendly crowd who enjoyed taking a break in the vintage tent and chilling out on the leather chairs and deckchairs which added a really cosy feel. There was even a hair dressing booth so you didn't need to let roughing it in a field stop you looking your best - what a good idea!

Add to the mix great music from the likes of Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Kelis, Jaguar Skills, Beardyman and Mystery Jets (and the fact that it was only a 40 minute drive from our house) and it was a pretty great weekend. Here are our pictures...

We're on ASOS Marketplace!

I have quite a bit to tell you today, but I'll do them in separate posts to keep them tidy! First up, I wanted to let you know that we have started selling on ASOS marketplace. It's pretty exciting, everyone knows what a fashion giant ASOS is, and I have seen the new Marketplace grow over the last few months, but as everything has to be photographed 'street style' (which basically means on a human, outdoors) I had not had a chance to start selling on there until a couple of friends came to visit and I managed to drag them out into the garden to take a few pics. Here a few examples of our efforts...

I'm hoping to get out and shoot some more on Monday, so if all goes to plan I'll be adding some more jewellery and clothes too. You can take a look here.
