What is wardrobe management?

Put simply – wardrobe management is organising your wardrobe to ensure that it works for you. We have called our service ‘Wardrobe TLC’ as we think every wardrobe could do with a little love.

Your wardrobe should contain items that you love, that suit you and your current lifestyle. If you are rushing around every day trying to find something to wear and can’t find your favourite top, jeans etc all you may require is a better organised wardrobe. From a general tidy up and sorting your wardrobe in to sections and arranging everything neatly, to a thorough clear out of clothes that are the wrong size, or no longer suit you, we are here to help.

Don’t worry we won’t persuade you to throw away your favourite jumper or jeans.

If you are looking for further information you can email us info@laurasdresses.com or call  us on 07880 602232

You may be too busy to find the time to sort out your wardrobe but a neat and tidy wardrobe makes life easier and helps declutter your mind.

I don’t know what suits me?

If you are looking for advice on what to wear to an event, then why not make an appointment and come and try on some dresses to see what suits you. Sometimes your body shape changes due to health issues, diet, illness, or simply the ageing process and you no longer know what works for you.

It is always good to have advice and input from someone other than a friend. An unbiased opinion that can help you find something you are comfortable and feel amazing in. We have a wide range of accessories including bags, pashmina and jewellery. A simple outfit can look stunning with the correct piece of jewellery, or bag to set it off.

Make an appointment by calling us on 07880 602232 or email info@laurasdresses.com.

We look forward to helping you make the right choice.

Underwear is key

If you don’t have the correct underwear then your dress won’t sit properly. A strapless bra is no use under an ordinary dress but will be perfect under a strapless dress.

However if you can manage to go without a bra, we have a selection of dresses that have built in support which saves you trying to source suitable underwear.

FullSizeRender                    Grey very low front         1154BEIGE chiffon sequin strapless

If you have a backless dress but still wish to wear a bra, then these are an excellent choice as they stick on and can be washed and re-used countless times. They even have a clip to clip the cups together and provide better cleavage.

A pair of spanx or pants that provide a smooth silhouette help create an hourglass effect. There are lots of different styles to choose from online and in major department stores. This is just a couple of options.

Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air and with it comes colour. Lots of beautiful hues and tones of pinks, blues, lilacs, lemons and greens along with champagnes and nudes. It is time to turn our minds to Spring Balls, Proms and parties.

Farewell to 2016

Another year draws to a close and what a year it has been.

We started the year with Prom dress enquiries for June Proms, some people like to feel organised and choose a dress early on, whilst others wait until nearer the time. Some ladies come with a particular style, or colour in mind and leave with something the total opposite of what they had originally considered. It is a good idea to have a style in mind, however it depends on your body shape, sometimes a particular style doesn’t work and a different style compliments your shape better.

This year we had a group of 4 lovely young ladies who all wanted to come together for an appointment. They loved the dresses but were undecided as it is much easier to find a dress when it is a one to one appointment. We are very happy to say that the girls returned individually and each one hired a beautiful dress and they all looked amazing!

We had a client looking for a dress for her wedding vow renewal and a couple of clients for small intimate weddings who didn’t want to wear traditional wedding dresses. Lots of ladies of all ages looking for dresses for Birthday celebration parties, including 18th,21st, 30th, 40th, 50th and 60th and quite a few engagement parties too.

Mother of the Bride, or Groom and Christening and wedding guest outfits were also provided this year along with a couple of bridesmaid dresses. Although we don’t have traditional Mother of the Bride, or Groom outfits we do have outfits that are a bit different and unique. We don’t stock bridesmaid dresses but a lot of people don’t want exactly the same dress for their bridesmaids, or they are looking for something that is not a traditional bridesmaid dress.

One of our regular clients came back for a fourth visit for her annual event and we had several mother and daughters looking for events that they were attending together.

A number of clients hired dresses for Awards and Black Tie dinners and Balls. We had several dresses at The Butterfly Ball, The Red and Black Ball and the recent Scottish Italian Awards, and Just Dance for Maggie’s, to name but a few.

We participated at a number of Fashion Shows this year including one at The Restaurant Bar & Grill and one at 29. A few of our dresses were used for various photo shoots throughout the year and several of our dresses were recently worn for a film that was shot in Glasgow and Sweden. (Further details will be revealed shortly).

All in all a busy and exciting year and we look forward to more of the same this year.

We would just like to finish by thanking all our customers for their friendship and support this year and look forward to welcoming new and returning clients in 2017.
