We love what we do...
And we promise you'll leave our boutique with things that you'll treasure for a long time. After all, as the Italians know, fashioning a bella figura (literally, a beautiful figure) makes the world more beautiful for everyone.
Practical, yet elegant clothing and accessories that can be worn throughout many seasons; I love this shop! Superb quality.

Like many of our customers, we were big fans of that gossipy, period romance, Bridgerton. Set during the heyday of the Regency period (1813-1827) a big part of its appeal was the absolutely lavish looks sported by the misbehaving members of high society. Just look at those frocks, that fabric, the stupendous hairdos and the delicious pastel colours – they were truly transporting during lockdown.
Normally at this time of year thoughts turn to the mountains and fun holidays skiing with family or holing up in lovely chalets with steaming spas in the snow. While we may not be able to get there this year, Meredith Erickson's fancy-pants cookery-book-come-travelogue, Alpine Cooking, is helping us get in the mountain mood.
Now that Christmas is upon us, we're reflecting on how best to celebrate. Certainly, like everything else about 2020, Christmas is going to be different. But that doesn't mean there needs to be a deficit of magic. On the contrary, we think leaning heavily on traditions will make this Christmas special.
