Shop UK Online!
No need to run to London. It really is at your doorstep or should I say fingertips. We found these great online stores for you to let you fingers do the walking .. oh and have that credit card on hand because we can’t pomise that it will stay in your wallet for long.
Silk and Sawdust
I like the name already .. this vintage-inspired fashion label offers some beautifully cut pieces that are aimed at women over thirty. Each piece is timeless, elegant and sophisticated and takes inspiration from fashion illustrations, photographs and vintage pattern books from the 1930s to 70s. The tailoring is done in Bangkok and the fabrics are hand selected to make sure that each piece moves with the body to make you feel that little bit more glamorous. Founder and Designer Claudia Orrell travels regularly between London and Thailand for each collection. Look here for the latest Spring/Summer line: www.silkandsawdust.com
There is something irresistible about the Irish. Roothies draws its inspiration from Irish culture and heritage to provide luxury home and lifestyle products such a throws and scarves all woven in traditional mills in Ireland. Have a look at some of the lovely things that we found on their newly launched website. Order online at: www.roothies.com
I was personally intrigued with this one. StyleShake are self-styled online bespoke outfitters. What’s that you ask?
