  • Let it snow!

    January 23, 2013

    snow in forfar

    We know it was wrong to tempt fate! Only at the beginning of last week we were remarking how lightly we had got off weather wise this winter. Apart from a few white flurries which quickly turned to sleet, we were feeling positively smug - that is until the snow arrived with a vengeance, and didn't melt, marooning the frockmobile in a drift with a 12 inch topping of layered snow and ice.

    Amazingly the posties have been getting through and we can still get to our local post office on foot to send out our orders, but they may be subject to some delay due to the adverse conditions here and elsewhere.

    Thankfully,  it's not as bad as it was two years ago when a minor Frocker had to hole up in a hotel as he couldn't make it back from Dundee. He did make himself useful by fixing the hotel's IT system and won handsomely at the local casino during his away-stay, but that's another story altogether.

    So we are wearing cashmere, lots of it, and our trusty faux fur coat when we have to brave the elements. While we have sold a lot of the aforesaid faux fur, cashmere, mohair and woolly jumpers over recent weeks, we still have plenty of snow-busting, frost-defying frockery on offer in our catalogue, with lots more waiting in the stock room.

    As a winter warmer we are offering 15% off all purchases until Sunday. Just enter SNOW-15 at the checkout for your discount to be applied.

    Let it snow! Our winter wardrobe can cope with even the coldest temperatures in style.

    We regret that our treasured vintage ice skates (sent to us by a dear friend in the Netherlands) are not for sale, but may well come in for a spot of dancing on ice on Forfar Loch if the big freeze continues!

  • Faux is the way to go

    October 22, 2011

    It's time...

    As temperatures plummet outside, our cold weather wardrobe has officially been recalled for active duty.

    Faux fur is everywhere again this season and makes a no-brainer addition to any winter wardrobe, including Rosie Webster's on Coronation Street. Being especially fond of it ourselves, we have been adding a variety of faux fur coats and jackets to the catalogue, including the following lovelies.

    This vintage Roman Originals sumptuous cream faux fur coat is one of our current favourites.

    This classic dark brown vintage faux fur jacket will go with anything, from jeans to ball gown.

    This cream faux fur gilet with leatherette belt will add a stylish layer of luxury and warmth to the winter wardrobe.

    This dark brown faux fur jacket with cute rounded Peter Pan style collar is due to be listed soon.

    This fabulous vintage silver grey faux fur coat is reminiscent of 80s Abba style.

    And last but not least, a cute cream faux fur hood with pompoms!

    Why not treat yourself? You're so worth it!

  • Happy New Year!

    January 4, 2010

    Happy New Year to all! We have now re-opened for business after the festive break and all orders placed since 31st December will be dispatched today. It's good to be back at the frock face, although we could do with some huskies to help out, given that our vehicle is still under several inches of snow.

    We will be updating the catalogue this week with some scrumptious new stock. For those who have already spent too much over the holidays, check out our Clearance section, or look out for some highly affordable accessories that will be coming soon and won't cause credit card trauma.

    The faux fur has been literally flying here and we have had numerous enquiries from customers desperately seeking jackets and coats. We always do our best to source garments, but it can sometimes be difficult to meet demand for such sought after items.

  • Back to business as usual

    November 11, 2009

    The suspension of industrial action by the postal workers' union has brought us much needed relief from the inconvenience of organising alternative delivery services for some of our orders.  It's now back to business as usual - and with a vengeance! With the festive season rapidly approaching, shoppers are snapping up Frockery bargains in anticipation of the partying to come.

    We have had a run on faux fur jackets and coats, most of which have been sold as soon as they have been listed in the catalogue - and in some cases before they even make the catalogue. We blame Twitter! However, we are trying to keep up with demand and are about to add another two, as well as some more gorgeous cashmere knitwear (one yummy tangerine cardi with tags still attached would make a great gift at a fraction of the original price). We also have a selection of glitzy party wear waiting in the wings.

    Kirstin has been doing a spot of modelling of some of her own favourites, including a Burberry's nova check shirt and a fab gents' Kilspindie cardigan which looks equally good on a girl! We think you'll agree she wears them well.
