Take Time Out to Pamper YOU

We all deserve some extra pampering right now and there are so many small ways to make sure you look after you.

Light a candle and run a bath with delicious, luxurious bubbles.
Use a sweet smelling body scrub before showering and then layer on lush body moisturisers & scented oils to leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
Massage hand cream scented with essential oils into your hard worked mitts, make sure to inhale the fragrance for an extra mood boost.
A pamper pedicure for your poor tootsies
Struggling with sleep is something else a lot of us have been struggling with. A nightime skincare routine, followed by a spritz of our gorgeous So Sleepy on your pillow, will all help you have Sweet Dreams.
Have a browse through our Tropic Beauty Bible and let us know if you want to order anything – with FREE delivery over £30, there are lots of gorgeous options to choose from, to treat you or someone special.

Do You Need Some Retail Therapy

Are you missing Shopping?
Would a couple of clever, considered additions to your wardrobe be just the mood boost you need – it’s not called Retail Therapy for nothing :).

We are certainly missing seeing you face to face. Online Shopping just doesnt cut it for lots of us, garments are never quite the colour, fabric or shape they look on the model and it often leads to disappointment.
Great News, we can still bring you the Personal Shopping Experience and have designed a Virtual VIP Shop to make sure you get all of the benefits (& more) with none of the drawbacks of online.

You simply book a timeslot with us & we set up the Zoom Session.
We send you our Brochure of beautiful, but wearable French Clothing in sizes 6-24, to browse.
We preselect items on our rail which we know will flatter you in colour, shape & style personality.
During the session, we can talk you through fabrics, show you details & look in your wardrobe to pair up looks, with garments you already have, advise on finishing off with shoes etc
We can then order and post to you any items you wish to try in the comfort of your own home.
Its a complete Shop & Style Experience without you having to leave the house and until the end of March, the session is FREE, PLUS we are offering a half price scarf with every 3 garments purchased.
Get in touch to book your slot and/or to see our Lookbooks.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR!

This is so relevant for our current Lockdown situation where loads of us are working from home and there is a temptation to stay in your jammies all day!!!! Keep your mood positive by getting dressed – you can still do comfort but use colour and chic styles to give yourself a boost 🙂

In her book Mind What You Wear : The Psychology of Fashion, Professor Karen Pine says, “Your choice of attire has powerful feedback effects; it sends internal messages which can boost or dampen your mood and even alter your thought process and capabilities.”……..

Drawing a conclusion to one study Pine conducted, she said, “Overwhelmingly, the women in our survey agreed that what they wore could affect their confidence level and that principally what they wanted clothes to give them was feelings of confidence. Not sexiness or even attractiveness. Confidence.”

She goes on “When we asked women in our research what it was about their ‘happy’ clothes that made them feel good, they told us they were well-cut, and likely to be made from bright and beautiful fabrics.”

We, as busy stylists totally agree with her findings. With years of experience under our belts, we know confidence is the main aim for most of our clients (even if they don’t know it). Our job and all our services are about empowering you to Be Confident and Happy in what you wear.

New Season Edit

We always love the excitement of a new season and all the possible new outifits it brings. Just by adding a few new pieces – be it scarves, introducing a new colour to your capsule, a new coat or pair of boots, your whole wardrobe can be refreshed and your look regenerated. As you know, we firmly believe every woman can look and feel fabulous, regardless of age or size. Look YOUR best by learning what suits YOU and keep your look updated with a nod to the current trends. You can easily update existing wardrobe favourites by changing what you team them with to keep your look current. To help you choose wisely – here is our pick of this season’s top trends and how YOU can embrace them right now ………

FLOATY FLORALS -The Catwalk and High Street (and of course Captain Tortue) are full of floral prints. From blouses to floaty frocks – with frill sleeve and collar detail – the feminine look is in. These often have a darker background for Autumn but look fab right now teamed with white trousers. This feminine style can be made to look more tailored by adding sharp trousers or a jacket or look more natural by adding a cardi or layering up with a knit.

TWEED WITH A TWIST – Tweed in all it’s forms is a massive trend this season. We see it in trousers, dresses, skirts and scarves. This classic style has been brought bang up to date by the addition of fringing, detailing and colour as well as edgy cuts – think slim fitting trousers and asymmetric skirts.

LOVE LAYERING – We are big fans of this trend as it is brilliant for changing your look by mixing your capsule wardrobe colours. This season its all about layering different fabrics and lengths – a cosy knit over a floaty dress, a floral blouse teamed with a chunky jumper. Perfect for the Scottish climate!

BLOCKS OF BRILLIANT COLOUR – We were delighted to see so much colour on the catwalk – especially the return of some fab tones we haven’t seen for a while – Vibrant Violet and Plums – these can be added to neutrals or mixed with shades of ochre, scarlet or teal!

KNITTY GRITTY – It’s time to get your needles out or if (like us) you are not that handy, then we can help :). Knitwear is a huge trend this season – from cardis to jumpers to coatigans, these are essential wardrobe staples to layer, add colour and bring your look bang up to date.
