Posted on October 21, 2011online dress-up guide, our stores have been transformed into the Mexican Day Of The Dead Festival and we've got a whole load of jewellery and decorations to celebrate it, including some extremely exclusive Michael Jackson dolls. We've also got lots of activities and events coming up next week to help you get in the mood for October 31st. You can keep an eye out for all Hallowe'en-related news here or on Facebook. In the meantime, step into one of our stores for some serious outfit inspiration; we've been putting together a fancy dress guide which is now brimming with more ghoulish get-ups than you can shake a stick at. We've brought some of these ideas to life with our displays in Soho...
Posted on July 1, 2011Coney Island Mermaid Parade, so now it’s time to get the look online. The feel for our guide is one that mixes classic nautical pieces with standout sequinned items in pastel shades for a seaside-meets-mermaid lagoon show-stopping look on the beach, during the day and at night.
BeachOur beach look mixes different vintage eras, with this '90s navy one piece swimsuit with white waistband and gold button detail, an ‘80s pastel green bolero and a ‘60s-inspired floral swim hat. Complete your look with this large ‘80s straw bag, the perfect summer accessory. striped vest gives a gentle nod to Victorian swimwear and the shorts are perfect in keeping with our theme.
DayFor a spectacular outfit in keeping with the parade’s theme of underwater mermaids and sea creatures, our day look is one that’ll have the locals wondering whether you’re part of the day’s events. Match the colours on display by wearing this cute novelty fish-print cut-off vest, high enough to reveal the beautiful gold button detailing of this high-waisted blue and white striped skirt. Throw on this green and blue summer print sequined jacket as the parade draws to a close, and accessorize with this large striped sun hat in coral and sage green along with this sailing boat print shoulder bag to really stand out! Our day outfit for the guys strays slightly from the usual mix of blues, with the introduction of a strong red zip with contrasting white and navy shoulder ‘70s polo shirt. Paired with some smart blue shorts, this ensemble is perfect for a full-on seaside nautical look.
EveningThis sumptuous evening gown will truly dazzle the crowd at the parade’s after party. The cut off shoulder and floor length style adds a sexy feel to this beautiful eye catching number. Let the moon reflect and illuminate the hundreds of beautiful sequins that cover this dress, as you sip on cocktails and recall the day’s events on the sun deck of your Coney Island host’s holiday home. Accessorize with a matching aqua turban and clutch. Our men’s evening look mixes casual with military uniform - a smart navy shirt paired with vintage sailor trousers with anchor buttons, topped off by this amazing ‘50s vintage cardigan with white stripes and button detail.
Posted on June 10, 20111990s blue reversible rain jacket will definitely keep you dry. It's also not too heavy so you won’t have any problem tying it around your waist once the sun comes out. Light blue on one side and dark on the other, you can swap and change this number throughout the festival so you're always looking fresh. Wear this woolen yellow, green and blue striped jumper to keep you warm when hanging outside your tent discussing which bands played best and finish your look with some acid wash jeans tucked into a pair of wellies to keep you looking on trend.

This'll certainly make you stand out from the crowd (and hopefully rain clouds) so if you ever get lost, fret not, your friends will have no problem finding you in a second! Sweatshirts are also an essential item - as the temperature drops, throw this superb black and white tiger print on for warmth; the jeweled eyes are hypnotizing, don’t you think?!
