Frockery Talk

  • Small Business Saturday 2016

    December 4, 2016
    Yesterday was Small Business Saturday 2016 and we had already made a conscious decision to support our local traders (including locally-based online traders) during the run-up to Christmas rather than heading to our nearest city, which tends to tempt footfall away from Forfar, most especially at weekends.
  • Metallic guru, is it you?

    December 1, 2016
    Marc Bolan was one of the chief frocker's heroes when glam rock was in the ascendant and Metal Guru stormed the charts in 1972. Oh, how we all cried when Marc died in 1977, but his legacy of metallics, lurid lurex and glitter remained de rigueur throughout the decade for a night out at the disco.
  • 'Tis the season for seeing red

    November 21, 2016

    As the Christmas season approaches, the annual descent into collective chaos is already upon us and we are beginning to see red. Trees are appearing in windows in the third week of November; supermarkets are replete with mince pies and party-ready platters; Jingle Bells and Slade have begun their relentless assault on our eardrums; and we are expected to remain merry throughout - all the while shopping until we drop. Even the turkeys who didn't vote for Christmas seem glad to be heading for the exit now that the advent countdown has been triggered.

    But we are also seeing red in a good way with a selection of Christmas crackers en rouge from our catalogue, none of which will land you in the red at this expensive time of year!

  • Data driven dictatorship

    September 23, 2016
    We have been guilty of blog neglect in recent months, but as friends and fellow tweeters will know, the chief frocker has been preoccupied with saving the world. While the minor frockers have been doing a great job minding the shop, our Frockery talk has been far less frequent on our blog and social media channels, for which we can only apologise.
