Dress of the Year 2011 announced

The Fashion Museum, Bath, has chosen its Dress of the Year 2011. The dress, chosen by Hamish Bowles, International Editor-at-Large for US Vogue, is this Sarah Burton creation for Alexander McQueen, and formed part of her stunning AW11 Ice Queen collection.

The ivory tulle bodice of the dress is embroidered with 3D organza feathers (each feather is embroidered with silver and white thread and bullion), and the gown has an organza skirt consisting of 31 panels, which are hand embroidered with miniature eagle motifs using silver and white bullion.

This latest addition to the Dress of the Year collection means there are now 49 outfits as part of the Fashion Museum’s award.

Stock update

Our Dulce print dress has proved such a hit, that we've temporarily sold out of sizes medium, large and extra large.

One of the tricky things about running a boutique is trying to predict how popular things are going to be. From the first time I saw Dulce, I knew it was going to be a winner, but sometimes things take me a little by surprise!

I've just reordered the dress in all sizes, so you can place an order here for delivery in approx three weeks.

Hurry before it sells out again!

Our summer shoe collection is now online!

It's no secret that I'm a bit of an accessories addict, which is why I've expanded Anusha's collection of sandals, jewellery and bags.

This week, I've chosen my pick of our new shoes and sandals, in a pretty palette of blues, taupes and pinks.

These shoes are perfect companions to your summer wardrobe - wear them with anything from shorts and turned-up jeans to summer dresses and skirts.
