3 Trends I’m Loving This Summer…
And think you should too!
They are so laid back and casually stylish which makes them incredibly difficult to get wrong!
Shirts from M&S, Jane Norman, Mint Velvet, La Redoute
Whenever I buy new trends I tend to neglect my bottom half, instead opting for the basics like jeans, skirts or chinos – these patterned shorts can go with my basic wear this summer and incorporate the trend in a new way than before – great for festivals too!
Shorts both from Yogoego
What would we do without them in the summer sun?!
Sunglasses from Internacional, Primark, Accessorize, Jacamo SS11 menswear
The Altringham store opened in March 2011 on Stamford New Road. The boutique is the best around by far and has been caterpulted into the limelight and is the hot topic of conversation on the lips of fashionistas.
Owner Laura Warburton thinks the reason for early success is down to the emphasis and time that goes into buying, and says “we are constantly ‘out there’ hunting for cool new labels and cherry picking only the very best pieces. I have a rule – I won’t have anything in the boutique that I don’t adore myself. Our customers are very disconcerted; they are bored with the high street and want something different.”
Looking at the store above the first impression is that of luxury and high fashion, even before you step inside the gem of a boudiour! The rails, shelves and hat stands are dripping with an array of beautiful feminine silks and jerseys in muted pastels and vintage prints. Antique looking lace scarves, pretty dresses, tops and jewellery are hung haphazardly from mirrors, mannequins and antique furniture.
This is one dressing up box every big girl should play in.
Laundry’s pieces are so unique and feminine. Featuring are floor length maxi dresses, this summers hottest trend, in the prettiest prints and fabrics…
…ethnic inspired casual wear with 60’s detailing features highly amongst the distressed mirrors and duck egg decor…
…as does feminine touches such as embellishment and jewelled detailing…
Above is Ella King, Megan Warburton, Lucy Shaw, Laura Warburton, Imogen Massey and Kate Gosling at the launch of Altrincham’s newest addition.
I think this is the crème de la crème of up and coming fashion boutiques I’ve featured on LLLB. It has such potential and seems she has thought of everything! I can’t wait to see what happens next for Laura and will be looking forward to seeing many more products available on the web too!
