I love Lucy In Disguise. I love Lily Allen. And I LOVE the first range of vintage-inspired clothing that Lily and her sister, Sarah Owen, have designed to support their lovely shop.
If you haven't yet had the pleasure of visiting their Covent Garden location, you are really missing out. It's a brilliant concept. Vintage items (everything you could want, from daily wear tops to gowns for a ball) are hand-picked and available to essentially play dress-up in :) You can purchase the items to build your own beautiful wardrobe or you can rent pieces for a special evening out.
If that wasn't enough, there is a salon on the premises that you can hire and can even take part in packages (anyone up for doing this with me?!) where you can get ready with your girlfriends in a gorgeous dressing room with the help of a sales assistant to pick out the perfect outfit for you, enjoy refreshments and get your hair/nails/make-up did.
So to add to the magic, Lily and Sarah have launched their first original collection for the shop today and are available from Harvey Nichols and online at the Lucy In Disguise website. After seeing a preview of the 18-piece collection, I am seriously impressed and seriously upset I am away from London for the launch...any of my London lovelies planning of giving me a much nicer gift than I deserve, here are some of my top picks:
