♥ STYLING:

 ~ Equestrian & Victorian Trend ~ 

 

The distinctive and very elegantly sexy Victorian and equestrian looks are very on trend ~ and with their timeless elegance, always will be...

 

As design icon Ralph Lauren asserts 'equestrian is always in', perhaps because it can be worn with as much flair as fits your personality and always instills a sense of timeless class and subtle femininity as inherited by the Victorians who were able to achieve both rather admirably...so don the leather riding boots and delight in the gorgeous hour glass silhouette intrinsic of the tweed jacket, or just as striking, the long dark riding coat, harking back again to the Victorian and Edwardian era.....



♥ HISTORY: 

~ LAURA ASHLEY ~

Laura Ashley are one of the world's most recognizable British brands and have over 40 years experience in making colourful, seasonal clothing with retro styling and timeless chic, capturing the essence of the Victorian era and feminine florals that make all of their designs quintessentially English and timeless. 


Laura's love of all things Victorian led to the longer length silhouette and feminine styles which would become the company's trademark and was right on trend at the end of the 1960's when fashion turned from the mini to the maxi - a trend that has since returned with force emphasizing Laura Ashley's timeless quality.


In 1961 Laura Ashley and husband Bernard Ashley moved from their Kent home, the original design and production venue, to Carno, Wales, to enable them to expand the business and be inspired by the rolling Wales countryside. 

Their vintage pieces are now so sought after and desired! - and once you have seen and worn their clothing you'll know why they are so adored!

♥ SIZE: PLEASE BE AWARE THAT VINTAGE SIZING OFTEN COMES UP SMALLER THAN MODERN DAY SIZING ~ PLEASE ASK FOR ANY MEASUREMENTS YOU NEED TO BE SURE OF FIT...xxx

UK 12 - in label


EURO 38 - in label


US 8 - in label


Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.



Any QUESTIONS, please just ask!


LASTLY, IN TWO WORDS........TIMELESS BEAUTY! xxx
