The Telegraph | How Small Boutiques Are Celebrating Reopening In Style

Another lovely feature in The Telegraph, this time an article discussing how small boutiques are reopening in style with ‘socially-distanced parties’! Sophie spoke to Caroline Leaper about how we have adapted our strategy since the store closed, by offering private appointments via FaceTime, and updating customers on new product on WhatsApp. We know our regular clients have been desperate to get back into store, and our personal shopping service offering unique edits will hopefully entice new customers. We are also offering one to one half hour appointments throughout the day... Read More

weekly fix

The weather is finally getting colder! So for this week’s weekly fix, we chose a warm and snuggly outfit. The Suncoo Reversible Eden coat is a must-have and our top pick this season! Seriously soft, the Eden coat features a reversible design, allowing you to wear it with a more furry look on the outside, or with a smooth finish with a furry trim. We’re wearing the Custommade Digthe Pullover underneath, a relaxed jumper with beautiful lace detailing on the sleeves. Still as popular as ever, our Pom Pom Hats are now... Read More
