As summer finally arrives – with a vengeance – you’ll be relieved to hear that we’ve just launched our pure cotton collection of classic shifts.
In a choice of colourful prints including dragonflies, lovebirds and roses, our Audrey shifts are beautifully tailored to flatter. The neckline sits just below the collar bone and is set wide to minimize the waist, the armholes are not too cut away and the hem sits typically on the knee of an average height lady. At the back there is a fully enclosed double box pleat, and the dresses are fully lined in fine 100% cotton lawn for maximum comfort.
Now it’s easy to look chic and keep your cool!
We were delighted to see Lorraine Kelly looking fabulous in our Lily dress this morning
– loving her matching pink shoes too X
It was a chilly windy day at Ascot when Jane attended this year, but she was warm and elegant in a bespoke Rita dress and Lauren jacket in light wool puppy tooth check, with ‘windproof’ hat by Liz Felix X
A selection of our designs are now available to purchase from Liz Felix Millinery Henley http://www.lizfelixhats.com/.
In addition to our dresses and Liz’s lovely hats you’ll also find beautiful jewellery and accessories to complete your look.
So now you can find everything you need for your special event all in one place.
In addition to stock pieces we can offer a bespoke service from Liz’s studio, and the lovely Liz can create a hat to match. All your occasion wear problems are now officially over!
A huge thank you to the gorgeous Pippa, Suzanne, Mel and Natalie for modelling at the show, and an equally huge thank you to the lovely Gemma from Beauty Call who did their stunning make up and hair. Beauty Call is a nationwide network of hair and make up artists (there’ll always be someone near you) have a look at beautycall.co.uk.
We’ve had something of a celebrity fest chez Jane & Marilyn recently. Firstly, a Jane & Marilyn dress made an appearance on Loose Women (the second time a Jane & Marilyn design has appeared on the show), when Andrea McLean chose Katherine in banana for a recent appearance.
Next up was Lorraine Kelly who chose to wear our Lily dress for the Women of the Year Awards, where she was a judge.
You can see more pictures of Lorraine at the Awards here: http://www.itv.com/lorraine/hottopics/lorraine-goes-to-women-of-the-year/
Wonderful to see these gorgeous ladies looking so glamorous in Jane & Marilyn!
It’s always wonderful to see our customers in all their finery, so we were delighted to receive these pictures of ladies at Royal Ascot.
This lady has added some black and white feathers to our black cartwheel hat to co-ordinate with her black and white dress. This is such a versatile hat, it looks striking and elegant on its own but is also a perfect foil for a strategically placed feather or flower.
This customer chose a special colour for her Rita dress; a beautiful rich pink which positively glowed. She looked radiant with her matching picture hat and pale pink shoes.
The Rita was also Jane’s choice for her day at Ascot. In a midnight blue, with matching Lauren jacket it was accessorised with a dramatic dark blue mesh hat trimmed with peacock feathers and iridescent beetle wing hat pin. Jade green shoes and bag and beetle wing brooches completed the look.
Marilyn looked so elegant in her choice of the Katherine dress in a soft beige with taupe patent bag and shoes. She added silk flowers to match her accessories on both her hat and in the draped front of her dress.
With Ascot out of the way it’s all about Henley Regatta; it’s likely that Rita will be making an appearance and probably Veronica too!
