Stars and Stripes

Definitely a Star and looking great in Stripes. This outfit from a recent new label b.young demonstrates how a very affordable label can look top notch when worn with confidence and ease. I always remember Marie Claire and the regular feature they used to run called ‘Spree or Steal’ when they used to feature two similar outfits where one cost a months salary and the other could almost be afforded on your Saturday wages! Well this outfit is definitely a Steal with the shorts at £34.99 and the jacket at £69.99 the whole outfit comes in at just over £100. And looks much much more than that. 

Here we ShowCase it just on it’s own with a great pair of Ganni heels or with a delightful cool cotton boxy shirt by Selected Femme and some flat sandals. Either way it’s a great look and, as we often say, can take you from that all important morning meeting or interview to a casual evening with friends. Just the kind of outfit we love. Measured and smart when we need it to be but looking stylish and cool for later in the day.

Look at our online shop for this latest summer b.young collection. When it’s chosen carefully and teamed with the right accessories it’s a inexpensive label than can look a million dollars! 

Sunshine and Rains

We’re loving this bright yellow right now and what better way to show it off than to have it feature in our recent Fashion Show held on Sunday 20 May in the fantastic Mercer Gallery. Lou Henry is featured here wearing a glorious Munthe yellow loose blouse with a bright yellow Rains jacket over the top. She’s one of the baristas at Hoxton North, the wonderful cafe bar at the Crown Hotel roundabout here in Harrogate. It’s a great place for early morning meetings over a delicious coffee or an end of working day glass of red! And as we loved the look so much at our show we decided to feature it in our shop windows too. Harrogate, like many parts of Scandinavia has its share of rain and sun so it’s always great to have a lightweight rain jacket close at hand and the Rains collection is one of the most stylish ways to achieve this cool look.
