Top of the tops

Iris top

This beautiful Iris chiffon top was an instant hit - selling out three days after it first went online at Anusha in September. It's been so popular that we've had to reorder it seven times! We've just taken delivery of the latest order today - hurry, though, this is the final delivery before Christmas, and it's selling fast!

As the temperature drops...

...my thoughts are turning to summer! I've just come back from my latest buying trip to London - on one of the coldest days of the year so far, I was transported to spring/summer '08, via pretty, vintage-inspired blouses, camis and tea dresses in porcelain blue, white, oyster, soft rose and hibiscus pink.

These are the latest additions to next year's collection, which is coming together nicely. I'm very excited about the fantastic new designers we're introducing to Anusha, and I'd love to tell you more about them, but I'm keeping everything under wraps until early next year. One thing's for sure - I know you're going to love what we've got in store!

Buried treasure

As an art history and a museums/galleries graduate, I'm ashamed to say that I hardly ever visit exhibitions these days (my excuse is that Anusha takes up so much of my time). But that's all going to change – instead of just reading reviews of all the latest shows in the Sunday supplements, Mr Anusha and I have decided to make an effort to get up to London to see some of them.

We thought we'd start with a couple of well-publicised blockbusters, so we've booked tickets for the First Emperor: China's Terracotta Army exhibition (at the British Museum until 6th April 2008). This exhibition enables you to come face to face with some of the life-size terracotta soldiers, horses, musicians and acrobats that were found in the burial complex of the first emperor of China, Qin Shihuangdi.

We're also going to see Tutankhamun and The Golden Age of the Pharaohs, which has just opened at the O2. When King Tut came to the UK in 1972, it was the first 'blockbuster' exhibition this country had ever seen - I was only four at the time, so I can't really remember the huge amount of publicity and hype that surrounded it (it attracted a staggering 1.8 million visitors). Tutankhamun is at the O2 Bubble until August 2008.

Have a great weekend!

More tea, vicar?

teacup candles

You're clearly a lot more organised than me - judging from the number of gift orders we've had in the past couple of weeks, lots of you have started your Christmas shopping nice and early.

What's your favourite buy this week? Well, these adorable candles are going down a storm... in a teacup.

Lounging around

vintage PJs

Although Anusha is well known for its gorgeous partywear, now that autumn's well and truly here, we also appreciate cosy nights in.

Our latest collection of vintage-inspired print nighties and PJs, sequin Moroccan slippers, and adorable woollie socks are perfect for those of us who also relish a Saturday night in, watching a good film (or, ahem, Strictly Come Dancing…).
