Create Your Summer Wardrobe With Myrine!

When you find a clothing brand that not only suits but also sizes well on you, it's like gold dust!

MYRINE, a designer clothing label from Antwerp, is just such a brand which is a hot favourite with not only ourselves but also a lot of our customers at

As a number of our customers have already done, they have selected a handful of Myrine summer dresses, tops and skirts from the Spring Summer 2013 collection that can mix and match with each other for both smart or casual-wear.

Black and neutrals are predominant in this collection, but unusually for Myrine, there are some stunning floral prints, and an injection of colours including emerald green and hot pink.

If your looking for special occasion pieces for weddings or parties, some of the hot picks so far have been the beautiful and highly feminine pieces like Myrine Bach with Balsam ruffle shrug, or Myrine Ates combined with the Sage crochet knit shrug.

Here are a few of our favourites which you can find on our Myrine Clothes page.

Desigual: Sex, Fun, Love

The January blues have just lifted at with the arrival of the first delivery of Spring Summer 2013 Desigual. There's something about Desigual that immediately brightens your mood!

It's like Christmas all over again and there is an air of excitement as the delivery is unpacked. And wow, we are not disappointed. The colour and fun of the Desigual prints is unmistakeable.

The new Desigual collection comes under the banner of Sex, Fun, Love and they have used this to express their inspirations for this season. And it describes the essence of the brand perfectly.

This week TV stylist Gok Wan said lots of studies have shown that men are more attracted to women in colourful clothes. We've certainly noticed that it is often the men that point out the Desigual collection to their partners.

So, if you're in need of a tonic or even a little Sex, Fun & Love, take a look at our Desigual collection! The collection includes coats, dresses, tops, skirts, shoes, sandals and ballerinas, handbags, scarves and jewellery.

Sneak Peak at Out of Xile Spring Summer 2013 Clothing

We were so delighted at with our first season of the Out of Xile clothing range, that we have ordered a new collection for Spring Summer 2013 and expect to receive it any day now. With that in mind, we have put together a short video to give our customers a flavour of what to expect from this beautiful clothes collection.

Using a delicate palette of Summer colours including pale pinks, blue, sage green and ivory white the Out of Xile range is once again timeless and elegant. We have selected a number of outfits that are perfect for special occasions, and some that could be suited to the Mother of the Bride for summer weddings.

Out of Xile is a quintessentially British designer label. It is designed and hand finished in London and the collections are proudly made in three small English factories. The Out of Xile fashion collection is made of natural fabrics and dyed in England, producing small variations in the palette making each piece just a little bit unique.

Looking Forward To Myrine in Spring

The new Myrine clothing collection is always eagerly anticipated by both our customers and ourselves. So to give you a taster, we have put together a short video to preview the new Spring Summer Myrine clothing collection. Due in at the end of January 2013, we anticipate having it available online early February.

The Antwerp-based Myrine Spring collection offers a slight departure from the norm this season. The collection includes some beautiful floral prints in vivid pinks or soft silvery greys. There are also some vivid acid coloured layering pieces which can be worn with either with the floral prints or black tunics for a really eyecatching style.

It Takes Two ... Party Dresses

We were searching high and low some great party dresses to create a festive window for our offline shop, The Terrace in Lyme Regis, and found a new, exciting designer who has just launched her first collection this Autumn Winter 2012.

Naomi Tsukishima worked at French Connection as a fashion designer and has now gone solo. Her style is sleek, edgy and stylish and she uses beautiful contemporary shaping and cuts. We fell in love with her collection, so her creations now stars in our Party Dress window.

We chose two totally contrasting dress styles for two different party occasions. One is a sleek dark navy cocktail dress with elaborate beadwork on the cap sleeves and a zip detail up the entire middle of the back. This is an elegant dress which contours the body shape and combined with a pair of slick heels is quite simply stunning.

The other is a cream floaty ruffle dress which is ultra feminine with diaphonous detailing. It is a tiered dress with pleats and beadwork above the bustline. This can either be worn as a short dress or combined as we have with a pair of leggings like the Naomi Tsukishima leather-look stretch leggings.

We hope to be running more of the Naomi Tsukishima range in 2013 to add to our growing range of women's clothing and accessories.

New Romantics

This Autumn/Winter's clothing collection by Danish fashion label, Cream, oozes feminine romance and we think it is their best collection yet. Cream Clothing can be worn both simply or layered to give a more timeless bohemian style. But whatever your look, it is all about the details this season with ruffles, lace, bows, lace, ribbons and embroidery. has expanded its range significantly, to include not only clothing but also some of Cream's fabulous accessories including leather and suede boots, long socks, belts and scarves. In the Cream clothing range we have selected dresses, cardigans, tops, leggings, blouses and ponchos. We particularly love the little ponchos such as the MARIA (second picture) which can either be teamed up with pretty lace dresses such as the SOIA or with jeans and simple tops such as the AISHA.

Party Heels for Festive Frocks

One of the great things about Christmas and the festive season is the dressing up, whether it's the office party or friends over for dinner on a cold winter's night. We abandon all common sense, don our little party dresses and brave sub zero temperatures and it's all part of the festive fun!

It's the one time of year when we don't need an excuse and revel in the frivolity of sequins, beads and glitter and all practicality goes out the window. And finding that perfect pair of party shoes is the essential finishing touch to our festive finery.

If you're looking for something a little bit different from the usual black party heels, here is a selection from our Autumn Winter  2012 Ruby Shoo collection. Ruby Shoo is a relatively new label which is getting quite a following. They have some of the quirky styling of brands such as Irregular Choice or Poetic License, but are much more affordable with prices starting from £39.95.
