I am delighted we have some of Unicorn’s beautiful dresses from this Winter’s collection – Midnight Dreams. These dresses, named Foxy, Eudora & Ronda are beautifully tailored, classic pieces, ”with a pinch of playful quirkiness”, as described by Unicorn’s Sophie Rieu.  This season is all about slipping into comfortable, long lasting, luxurious mini universes to feel and look fabulous this Winter.

A Little Oh La La This Christmas – Introducing Enamore

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

I have really been looking forward to adding a little zing to Belleetik with some of Enamore’s utterly feminine lingerie in a super soft bamboo jersey & a divine organic silk.  We also have some sleep masks and garters for some fun & luxury, as well as some wonderful accessories from Enamore.

Enamore was established in 2004 by Jenny Ambrose in Brighton. Inspired by a love of vintage, Enamore creates beautiful & playful lingerie and hand made accessories with a twist on the modern Pin-Up. The range is designed and manufactured in the UK, from organic, sustainable and vintage fabrics.

There is no reason that being environmentally aware should mean giving up nice underwear. If anything it means getting nicer and cleaner underwear – minus the nasty pesticides and chemicals present in our knickers. A pinch of classic, a dash of retro and spoonful of gorgeous” is how Jenny describes her style and we are grateful to her for bringing back that good old fashioned glamour.

The last word goes to a journalist Starre Vartan, who in an article about Enamore, passed on some timeless words of wisdom from her grandmother – “Whatever kind of work you do or whatever ridiculous outfits you wear, make sure that you have pretty underwear on.” “Not for anybody else- for yourself.” http://fashion.elle.com/blog/2008/04/ecoluxe-lingeri.html
