So people we are shortly launching online with the mighty Asos as a vintage boutique within their new online Marketplace!

You will also be able to see and hear what went down with our amazing video including interviews with the whole team!
NICE TO FLEA YOU - 22nd March, 2011
We had a great time on Saturday at the Kensal Flea with lots of new faces and ones we know and love from our monthly boutique. Looking back at our pictures they mostly consist of food, which seems to becoming a recurring theme! We had to stop ourselves buying more from Flea Market Floozie and emmalovesretro. The fabulous Me Old China were also back with more vintage bus blinds, teacups and vintage postcards! We are back at Paradise on Saturday the 2nd of April taking over the entire Reading Room with our monthly pop-up boutique.

CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVA - 8th March, 2011
One of our favourite Soho establishments has been refurbished. It’s now a sumptuous cacophony of white marble, plumped velvet banquettes and sparkling crystal. We're referring to Kettners, established in 1867, steeped in history and dripping with glamour. We especially love the look of the pudding bar (of course) take afternoon tea or visit for late night sweets. The celebration continues as David Carter, doyenne of interior design and 40 Winks founder has created Chansons and Champagne. An decadent affair taking place at 8pm and 9pm every Wednesday in the Champagne Bar. Money is far to vulgar so it's free entry and complimentary cocktails for those that wish to dress to impress. Whilst you sip on your bubbles enjoy music from the likes of the Ophelia Bitz (performing tomorrow) Polka Dot Dolls, Talullah Tonic, The Strumpettes and Mika Doo who are all lined up for future dates!
SOMETHING FOR THE SOLE - 3rd March, 2011
During London Fashion Week we were invited to the launch of Harrod’s new Shoe Salon. They obviously wanted to keep up with the expansive Shoe Galleries recently opened by Selfridges. Harrods is altogether a less sexy affair choosing bespoke luxury over quantity. We walked into a deco inspired first floor, beaming with white marble and lots of famous faces. We first encountered the luxury mini boutiques by hard hitters such as Gucci, Jimmy Choo & Chanel. Us being us were drawn to the smaller but perfectly presented offerings from the glorious Slovenian-born designer, Lara Bohnic (who knew she did shoes) Opening Ceremony and Nicholas Kirkwood.
As the evening hotted up we spotted a cacophony of stylish faces including the dapper George Lamb who left us wondering if he was weaing A. Sauvage. A perfectly formed Pixie Geldof pulling off fierce gold shoes! Model of the moment and Miss Johnny Borrell, Edie Campbell with Poppy Delvigne’s little sister Cara.
As well as the famous faces we also took inspiration from some of the amazing style that was on show from other guests.
Musical delights came from The Voguettes, two editors of Vogue by day, DJ’s by night! Florrie also did a set which brought energy to the 'too cool for school' evening. We’ve read lots about her in the music press. Previously a session drummer for Girls Aloud and Kylie she is now in-front of the microphone. Although Florrie's had plenty of offers she has taken a conscience decision to remain unsigned to perfect her art. We loved her set, attitude and friendliness, one to watch! She has just announced three more dates in Manchester, Brimingham and London, buy tickets here.
