I don't know about anyone else but with these early morning rises of the sun it's time to don the eyemask and I can highly recommend investing in a extra special hand-made frilly one hand-made by the ladies of Ophelia Fancy now in stock in the shop.

Last week we did a photo-shoot with some on the new vintage from Europe and here is a sneak preview. Thanks to the photographer Meghan Gibion, I have been working with a lot recently and the Model Abby from Stolen Agency for some brilliant results. I think these photos reflect my love for vintage colours, fabrics and cuts. Godiva is packed full of some of the best vintage I have had in a long time and its great to document it in this way.
I have just returned from a mini break from Oban in the west coast, not really the fashion capital of Scotland, though it excels itself in many other way and full of west coast charm and has a surprising concentration of charity shops - if like me you enjoy rummaging though what some people throw away then you should visit the beautiful coastal town. This window in particular caught my eye and I could not resist taking a photo of its slightly frightening salute to Easter. If you do visit this gateway to the west coast islands you should not leave without having enjoyed a ice-cream sundae on the waterfront.

Finally! The website has officially launched today! Please check it out and let us know what you think.
After a long hard week of fashion fun I am off for a wee mini break to the West coast and though on a break I will have camera in hand to report on the Fashionista street styles of Oban & islands. But before I leave, here is a wee picture of the latest featured designers from our showroom. I must thank the very lovely customer who just brought in the article from last weeks Scotland on Sunday which I had neglected to pick up and would have then missed it! Check out the reversible african print cape by OPPS and hand-printed pashmina by Albal. Good Times.
Have a great weekend and may the sun keep shining. x

With the arrival if the sun come the arrival of the new Spring/Summer collection by Rowanjoy. Polkadots, stripes, florals, bows and harlequin patchworks, there is a piece of summer for everyone even when the sun doesn't shine - which lets face it it probably won't after this week. xx
