On the 13th November the doors of the boutique were opened to our guests for our most exciting and glamorous fashion show to date. We wanted to make this show extra special with only the most glitzy and chic dresses on the catwalk, the most stunning models and the most sensational hair and makeup!
The evening was a huge success, and we would like to say a huge thank you to: Alex and Willow from Cisco’s Karma in Brighton for doing our model’s sophisticated and trendy hairstyles and also to Ange Watson of Yawoma Makeup and Hair for doing the model’s classy and chic makeup. Thank you also to Heidi Cotton who picked the winner of our pencil dress competition and to Stuart Butcher for being our fantastic photographer on the evening!

A few words from Katherine Tanswell, Proprietor of Walk in Wardrobe: ‘I feel honoured and delighted to have had our work recognised by the Sussex Fashion Awards, who have given us the award for ‘The best place to shop in Sussex’ two years in a row in 2011 and 2012. I would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support, each and every one of you have made my 15 years in business a genuine pleasure and I truly appreciate the chance to offer you our services. I look forward to a continued relationship with you and look forward to extending our top quality service to our new customers both at the boutique and online’.
Although Daniel Craig was partially responsible for getting my heart racing at the Skyfall Premier this month, I must confess, the main cause of excitement for me was seeing all the ladies at the event looking so glamorous in their gorgeous dresses! Bond fever seems to have struck the nation and our lovely customers are no exception; over the past few weeks we have witnessed a sudden surge of ladies coming into the boutique to find dresses for Bond themed parties.
When looking for your dress for a Bond themed party, you must look for dresses which are glamorous, sexy, but definitely not tacky. The other thing to bear in mind is that you must never try to be something that you are not. The Bond girls are all uniquely different in personality and each have their own wardrobe to reflect this, so all you need to do is pick your favorite Bond girl and steal her style! At Walk in Wardrobe we can help you achieve both of these very important factors for your Bond party, it’s probably the reason why we are the first port of call for the local ladies attending Bond themed events!
So once you look drop dead gorgeous, all you need to worry about is making sure that the drinks are shaken and not stirred….
The winter temperatures seem to be coming at us full steam but that doesn’t mean that you can’t turn up the heat a notch in your wardrobe with one of our hot lacy dresses! This gorgeous little craze for lace has really hit the fashion scene with our customers at the boutique looking for lovely lacy numbers and celebrities in their droves wearing them on the red carpet, such as Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba and Daisy Lowe. It’s easy to see why these dresses have taken off in the way they have, they are sexy, sophisticated, elegant, and lets face it, a little bit romantic!
Akin to the little black dress, the little lacy dress is guaranteed to be drop dead gorgeous at any occasion. Black on black gives a stunningly chic look, and a light colour such as nude or champagne under black lace looks utterly exquisite, ensuring that you will stand out from the crowd. Sheer, lacy sleeves have also been popular at the boutique, adding a touch of class and they are also fantastic if you are not so confident about your arms.
These lacy dresses are very easy to accessorise, lending themselves to either silver or gold, adding that little bit of twinkle and making you sparkle and shimmer with nothing but pure glamour!
Victoria Beckham, Heidi Klum and Dita Von Teese have all been spotted in a gorgeously chic, sexy yet elegant pencil style dress. Myself and many of our lovely customers have been positively cooing over this dress, and you too can get the look with a very similar pencil dress we have in stock at the boutique! This dress is not only perfect as a day dress, it’s undeniable versatility means that you can jazz it up with a few accessories for a glamorous evening look! This dress is available from the boutique at just £105 to buy or £45 to hire. Please click on the photos for more details!
