  • Winter wardrobe warm-up

    September 21, 2013

    After an uncharacteristically fine summer, a distinct nip has entered the air, and not just in this part of north east Scotland either.

    As fashionistas prepare for the colder days ahead, we have been sorting our autumn winter stock in anticipation of the seasonal run on coats, jackets and woollens.

    Frockery Talk now proudly presents some of our favourite outerwear which will warm up your winter wardrobe without breaking the bank. We'll add links to the catalogue once they are listed, but please just email us for details if you can't wait!

  • Cosy up to cashmere

    October 15, 2012

    Now that we're half way through October, a distinct chill has entered the air, the central heating is back on and our wardrobes are having to move with the season.

    In our case (not least because we live in Scotland which is consistently colder than southern parts) the lightweight frocks, blouses and skirts have given way to an autumn / winter  wardrobe of wool skirts, sweaters and jumper dresses, knee length boots and our hardy perennial faux fur coat.

    As the nights draw in and the C word (which we promise not to mention at least until the clocks change) looms, with all its accompanying expense and stress that none of us can really afford, it's time to warm up our wardrobes with a few carefully chosen classic pieces to see us through to next spring.

    We always have a couple of cashmere jumpers to hand, which we team with wool skirts, trousers or jeans, and we often accessorise them with scarves and brooches. Our two particular favourites, which we wear constantly (and which, lovingly hand washed, come up as good as new every time) are an Autograph black cashmere roll neck jumper, which goes with anything, and a raspberry cashmere sweater which brightens up the dullest of days. But we are also tempted this autumn by some of the jazzier colours and patterns that make a bit more of a statement.

    As green fans, we are rather taken with this lime green striped jumper in 100% cashmere and and  the one below with its more subtle  pattern (and long sleeves!)

    For the classic woman, this vintage Jaeger cashmere sweater strikes just the right note.

    Or how about this super soft and super snuggly Oasis grey and blue striped cashmere jumper with cute off-centre pussy bow? It looks great with jeans, but would also bring a smart grey business suit to life.

    We also have a selection of go-with-anything cashmere jumpers and cardigans in plain colours to suit a variety of tastes and budgets.

    This Florence & Fred shawl collar red cashmere cardigan is a perfect wardrobe staple. A black pencil skirt would be our choice of accompaniment if it fitted us!

    And finally, vintage Munrospun honeysuckle cashmere - just too small for us, sadly.

    All preloved and waiting to be reloved! Why not cosy up to cashmere this winter and enjoy a touch of luxury at a fraction of the original price?

  • 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!
