Brighter Sparks: Vintage Clothing sale….Dec. 09

brighter sparks logo

We sat up and took note of the fabulous online fashion shop, The Stellar Boutique, when we fell in love with their beautiful statement jewellery from Norwegian Wood. Luckily their December sale is now on, so absolutely everything is 20% off – thats jewellery, vintage clothing and designer clothes, menswear and best of all these gorgeous and elegant vintage 1970s mock-croc handbags, which we ♥. The imitation crocodile gives the bags a slightly decadent edge (lucky for us we know no crocs were harmed in their creation!), and on a slightly more pragmatic note, it’s definately true that a brown handbag goes with absolutely anything….

Amelia’s magazine: Exciting new concept for online fashion boutique…Dec. 09

Stella McCartney and Kate Moss know a thing or two about good style. Both are fans of Stella McClure, owner of newly opened internet shop, The Stellar Boutique. Previously running a vintage-customised stall at Portobello Market, McClure packed up shop in 2004 to travel the world in a campervan. Now settled in the Spanish countryside, she has decided to give it another go. This time though from the comfort of her own home via the power of the internet.

The Stellar Boutique is a great concept. McClure travels the hippy-luxe trail across Europe to Marrakech in order to bring you vintage treasures. Everybody loves a one-off, and that is certainly what The Stellar Boutique provides. Featuring vintage bags, designer garments, customised pieces and exquisitely exotic homeware, there’s something for everyone.

Unlike many other fashion businesses at the moment, McClure is keen to promote new designers and ethnic artisans. (Instead of ‘Marc Jacobs’ think ‘Marc who?’) McClure insists that real style is best grown from within, instead of stealing magazine looks or following trend advice. The Stellar Boutique offers the freedom to do this.

But does it deliver? Standout pieces are endless. Let’s start with the accessories. There are the Moroccan style leather handbags.Then there are the mountains of unique jewellery to choose from. Pieces by Bora Bora, Lei Rose and Norwegian Wood are to die for. I love the porcelain tea-cup necklace and the silver postcard trinket by Lei Rose, as well as the feathered and fringed pieces by Norwegian Wood, and wow, have you seen the skull charm bracelet by Bora Bora? Even more for the Christmas list!

Next up, vintage. There’s second-hand, slightly grubby, vintage fashion, and then there’s nice ‘I’m so glad only I have this’ vintage fashion. The Stellar Boutique falls into the latter category. The vintage section of the site is easily the big winner. With clothing separated into 60s, 70s, 80s, handbags, scarves, boots and boho, it couldn’t be easier to navigate towards your era or item of choice.

Boho features peasant tops and kaftans Sienna would covet. The 70s section showcases (unusually beautiful) standout dresses at massively cut-down prices, and 80s can tailor to all your glam rock needs. There are sparkly 80s style heels and some killer red leather stilettos in the shoe department, as well as the standard biker or cowgirl boot. With menswear and more accessories coming soon, you’ve got to keep checking back for more goodies!

As if it needed to be said; everything is quality assured, hand-picked and highly loved. Check out the site to update your wardrobe for 2010 with fresh, exotic pieces your friends can drool over. For Christmas, they are spreading the holiday joy with a 20% off discount sale on all vintage and womenswear, as well as homeware! So why not pick up something for your Christmas shindigs or New Year’s bashes now instead of waiting for the mania of the January sales?!

Uplift: Cuca Jewellery….Dec. 09

It’s not long ’til Christmas and I’m sure many of you will be busy scribbling your lists for Santa, but don’t put down your pens until you’ve taken a look at these beauties!

I came across this range of jewellery whilst perusing online fashion store The Stellar Boutique and immediately thought of a few feminists I know who would love to find one of these in the toe of their stocking.

The collection is called ‘Icons’ and comes from an independent designer called CUCA. The designer is a Portugese artist, based in Barcelona, who hand makes each piece using ceramic tiles. She then prints on the image, works over it with glitter and seals it before turning it into a ring, pin brooch or necklace.

My favourites have to be the Frida Kahlo and Audrey Hepburn pendants, since they are both wonderfully inspirational women and cultural crushes of mine!

So, if you’re still stuck for what to buy a special someone why not splash out on one of these unique and original pieces? You’ll be supporting an independent creative and showing your appreciation of a strong female cultural icon. What could be better? Well, they’re all on sale now at The Stellar Boutique, so none of them will set you back more than £25! How’s that for a Happy Chrtistmas?!

Find A Fashion Shop, Norwegian Wood….Nov 09

The Stellar Boutique | Norwegian Wood

We’ve just found out that the very fabulous online fashion & vintage clothing shop, The Stellar Boutique has a gorgeous new jewellery label this season, called Norwegian Wood.

The brand’s Canadian designer, Angie Johnson, has been making waves in the indie design world for some time with her highly sought after, cutting edge designs. She shot to fame with the creation of the ‘cage skirt’ and followed it up with an equally innovative fashion creation, the ‘harness’, earlier this year.

The Stellar Boutique have selected some stunning fringed and feather necklaces from the collection for only £39! We think they’re the perfect way to accessorise a plain T. Enjoy our pick ~
