Pistachio it up in one of these envy inducing little numbers! The double layer beaded Chanel on the left is a true confection. You can get a super close up view of the bead work over on our instagram here>. It’s a size 4. The 1960′s beaded silk chiffon gown in the centre is also a size 4.

Full & fluffy 50′s skirts are holding court in our window this week. And boy do they command attention! Fashionista bees are a buzz especially over that middle cotton lace wonder. We have paired it with a crinoline (sold separately in a range of colours and sizes) and a slip. It’s quite versatile as it could be worn over a mini skirt or some cropped leggings for that über chic look. It’s a size 6. On the left is a little size 0 black satin dress (Sold) paired with an Art Nouveau brass and Czech crystal belt. On the right stands a Rodolphe couture ribbon lace frock in a size 2-4.

This week our window is all about the best neutral in the world-navy. Navy is flattering on every skin tone, and mixes beautifully with contrasting colours. How sharp would one of those cocktail dresses look with a pastel pink, green or yellow pointy pump for this spring?

Lefty is a size 8-10, center a 10 and righty a 6-8.
