Christmas windows and Christmas Gifts

December 01, 2016 Attic Online

 I love this time of year– as autumn moves into winter and there’s a nip in the air and frosty mornings give a tantalising promise of a White Christmas! Every December I hope this will be the year…..! I love the thought of mulled wine and roaring fires; in reality a cup of coffee and putting another jumper on!  1st December means ‘Christmas Window’ day! Our special little Christmas trees were ordered months ago and the ‘snow’ arrived today – so we will put on Michael Buble and let the creative process begin ….. Christmas is also about giving and...


Uplifting Spring shades to brighten your day

January 25, 2016 Attic Online

Forget the January blues and the early yellow daffodils, pink is the colour of the moment! Here at Attic nearly every box of new stock we open seems to contain some shade of this uplifting, complexion-enhancing colour. There’s a shade for every one from soft blush pink to striking coral. For early Spring, layering is the key and offers up a stylish way to beat the chill. Take a tip from the Chloe catwalk and go for a long cardigan. It hides any problem areas and looks effortlessly cool. Cinch with a belt for feminine definition.The traditional mannish suit has...


Colour and Style the perfect pairing for extra confidence

October 11, 2015 Attic Online

I am an Autumn, Lynne is Spring, Sally is Summer and Katie is Winter.  We’ve all been analysed by Emma from House of Colour who came to the shop to enlighten the Attic staff on the House of Colour philosophy.  We looked at skin tones, the range of colours within each palette and very interestingly people's dress styles, which are categorised into different clothing personalities such as Natural or Romantic. The fun bit was taking pieces from this season’s collections and deciding which style type they fitted, for example the dress below is for a Natural Ingénue personality because it is simple...


A Vintage day out!

June 10, 2015 Attic Online

On Friday I was in west London for my favourite buying appointment of the season - American Vintage. It's relaxed styling and luxurious fabrics hit just the right balance between smart and casual.  For Autumn we ordered lots more Son sweatshirts in in 3 great colours - you won't be able to live without one - perfect for the school run, yoga or Friday evening in the pub. The gorgeous John's dodgy directions made for an interesting walk back to the tube, not helped by a large glass of prosecco and general giddyness which always follows a trip to American...


Welcome

May 18, 2015 Attic Online

Hello! Welcome to the new Attic website. We’ve held back from selling online until now as we felt that our customers love coming into the shop and chatting before making a purchase. However we met two great ladies who made us change our minds – local photographer Dottie and creative designer (part-time farmer) Fiona, both of whom inspired and persuaded us it was a good idea. We are really pleased with the result. This blog is where we share with you things that make us smile. Plans for the future. What’s hot, what’s not. Fashion….  I get so excited by...
