It's nearly time for the Frockery Eco-Fashion Challenge 2014.
By way of incentive to save the planet (and the wallet) in style, there will be prizes at the end of February's challenge for our favourite eco-fashionistas.
So are you ready to frock?
Burns Night is fast approaching when haggis and Scots frockery are obligatory for those who take their Bard's birthday seriously. So we thought we'd feature a few of our tartan treasures in advance of the celebration on 25th January.
There's still time to brush up on your poetry...
For those with a keen interest in Burns, may we also recommend a book shortly to be published by our friends at Stenlake Publishing in Ayrshire? Managing Director Richard Stenlake writes:
"We are publishing Ann Matheson's 'The Essential Robert Burns' on 20th January. Ann is doing a presentation and book signing session at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayr on Saturday 25th January at 2 pm. This free event is by ticket only so if you'd like to attend please contact us. If you've never quite understood what all the fuss is about Burns then this event (and the book) are aimed at you! Ann is superb at explaining what the poems are about and why they are important. For those who have always found the Scots language (even Burns called it a dialect of English but it's now recognised as being a separate language) a bit hard to understand - there are full English translations for each poem. We have also been lucky enough to get permission from Irvine Burns Club to reproduce the manuscript of The Holy Fair in full and in colour in the book."
We'll leave you with a (poor quality) 'selfie' of the chief frocker sporting her vintage Tinkers (before they became Pedlars) hotchpotch tartan trousers. The elasticated waistband is thankfully forgiving of large helpings of haggis!

We are loving some of the boots we have in stock at the moment and thought we'd run a short pre-Christmas promotion.

These red suede boots are perfect for the festive season and beyond.
Chelsea boots are perennially popular and oh so comfortable. These are by Samuel Windsor.
We've already tweeted about these high sheen purple boots which have a bit of a mod vibe to them.
We love these Shelleys Victorian steampunk ankle boots.
Go back to classic black with these stretchy knee high boots.
Or go all out for glitter in these Top Shop ankle boots.

We've covered this topic before in a previous Not socks again, Santa! post, but since finding a suitable Christmas, or indeed any other occasion, gift for the man or men in your life can often be a frustrating task for even the most seasoned shopper, we thought a seasonal reprise would be in order.
When you are uninspired by the same old mass produced 'predictables' from chain stores and want to find something a little bit different - all the while still watching the budget - that task becomes even more daunting.
Cue the Frockery (we would say that, wouldn't we!) for some affordable vintage inspired and eminently useful accessories that will put a smile on any man's face on Christmas morning.
Mod style is hotter than ever and a vintage scarf will be a welcome addition to the wardrobe of the discerning male fashionista. We especially like this mustard paisley fringed scarf and this pure silk maroon patterned version.
