  • The wonder of woollies

    October 21, 2014

    Hurricane Gonzalo may have lost most of its momentum on its way across the Pond, but we have been experiencing the sting in its tail in the form of high winds, driving rain and plummeting temperatures. We are just hoping to hang on to our slates until it passes.

    As one tweeter observed:

    "When you open the curtains in the morning and a seagull flies past backwards.... You can be fairly sure #Gonzalo has arrived!"

    Readers will be glad to know we've got a selection of warm woollies waiting to provide stylish service for the inclement weather between now and next spring. What's more, we can deliver them to you at 'speedy Gonzalo' hurricane rate! 

    We are big fans of traditional knits and here at Frockery HQ, we have taken to wearing Norwegian knits and Aran cardigans rather than turn on the heating. Call us mean, but we aim to stay stylishly so!

    Here are some of our newly arrived knitwear, mainly jumpers and cardigans but also a fabulous Rodier multicoloured skirt which is sure to lift anyone's spirits as we wave goodbye to summer time when the clocks change this weekend.

    We have an extensive range of knitwear in the catalogue - something for everyone at highly affordable prices - so come on in out of the cold and we'll give you a  warm  frockery welcome!

  • Fair Isle style

    Since it's still so cold, wet, windy and grey throughout the country, we could all do with a bit of winter wardrobe cheer as we (hopefully) see off the last of the freezing temperatures, storms and floods and can begin look forward to a brighter spring.  These Shetland ponies stay warm as well as looking incredibly cute while promoting Scottish knitwear, so why not take a leaf out of their look book and rock some Fair Isle style?

    October 17, 2010

    We have been busy here at the frock face in our ongoing quest to bring you some of the very best and most affordable vintage, retro and preloved fashion online and have just completed a mega catalogue update of recently arrived stock.

    One of our own favourites is this vibrant vintage violet patent handbag which is sure to get you noticed and cheer up these dull autumnal days.

    We are also loving our latest footwear arrivals: a pair of sky blue 70s vintage shoes, these fab knee length Kickers brown suede boots and some black leather fleece lined boots.

    Camel wool is a fashion staple this season and we have fallen completely in love with this vintage 70s double breasted camel coat.

    We also have this smart brown velvet trimmed camel wool coat from Nuage.

    And for all those 60s vintage fashion lovers, how about this absolutely fabulous yellow mod raincoat by Admiral?

    Knitwear is also big this season and we have a great range on offer, including this retro boyfriend cardigan, a red flecked wool Arran sweater and a chunky jumper with ram motif.

    In our dress department, you’ll find some great vintage additions from the 60s, 70s and 80s, but this Droopy and Browns designer number in deep berry red wool crepe is a real find in good time for the festive season.

  • Pringle animation

    April 25, 2010

    We have had a busy week sorting some recently arrived stock and have just updated the catalogue with a selection of dresses, jackets, skirts, tops, lingerie and accessories. We hope you'll enjoy browsing the various Frockery departments.

    For all the Pringle knitwear lovers out there, this animated film should raise a smile. It certainly cheered up our rainy weekend in north east Scotland.

  • Desperately seeking Kilspindie knitwear

    March 26, 2009

    The Frockery has had a call from a nursing home where a staff member has accidentally shrunk the favourite jumper of one of its elderly residents. The staff all feel so bad about this mishap that they have taken it upon themselves to try and find a replacement.

    Although we do stock Kilspindie knitwear from time to time, we have nothing suitable at the moment, so we thought we would put out an APB for a jumper of this description: size L, navy wool, V neck with cabling, and contrast green and red stripes around the neck, hem and cuffs.

    If you or anyone you know can help match a suitable Kilspindie with this delightful elderly gentleman, please contact us and we will put you directly in touch with the nursing home. We know it would make both the elderly gentleman and the nursing home staff very happy!
