The Fabulously Fashionable Gift Guide

With Mother's day soon approaching on the 26th, it is still not too late to pick up a few special gifts to give this Sunday. Even if you are just looking for a gift for a different occasion then this blog post may offer you some useful ideas. 

Jewellery

Jewellery gifts aren't the most original but that doesn't mean they are boring. Jewellery can be thoughtful and beautiful and is something a person can keep for a lifetime. 

The first item on the gift guide is Sence jewellery, a wonderful Copenhagen brand.

Stunning semi precious stone necklaces are statement pieces and the best thing about necklaces are one size fits all! 

A bracelet is the perfect fit for treating someone to jewellery that is both unique and precious. This subtle bracelet is laced with semi precious stones and is sure to be appreciated. 

These sophisticated earrings are worn gold plated metal with semi precious stones which make wonderful pressies.

Candles

Shown below are some of the soy based candles that are not only thoughtful but genuinely smell amazing. They have a typical burning time of 40 hours and come in a handy gift box. 

A classic gift to give is candles and we have 7 different message candles in the range to choose from. "Instant happy woman just add bubbles" and "this house runs on love, laughter and prosecco" are our top picks for a mothers day present. 

Bags

There are a good selection hydestyle bags that suit everyday and can be used on both sides to turn a day time look into  night one. The bags are available in arrange of beautiful shiny metallic and are irresistibly stylish. 

They are also made of real leather and all have inner pockets and come with straps. 

On the reverse side, the bags are plain suede colours as one example shows below. 

Besides the messenger style bags there is also the small cross body bag, which looks incredible with a leather jacket

Clothing 

Buying clothing for others can be tricky, however this gorgeous floral print blouse is super flattering for all shapes and has a contemporary take on florals.

Scarfs

As for a cheaper alternative a scarf is a good idea. Brighten any outfit with this lovely colourful accessory. 

 

I hope you have a lovely Sunday and celebrate with loved ones. To find out more information about any of these items feel free to click on the links and pictures.

Fashion shows - Catwalk at St Andrews and George Heriots

It is an exciting weekend ahead for Eden, on Saturday the 4th of February we are involved in two separate charity events. The St. Andrews fashion show, organised by the St. Andrews University charities society, who reached out to Eden to use a variety of garments for their catwalk fashion show. 

Heres a preview of the outfits chosen to represent Eden in the show.

The fashion show includes a range of different fashion brands, from well known high street brands, to independent Scottish boutiques and also charity shops. The event is highly anticipated amongst St. Andrews students and has received recognition from respectable publications of the likes of British Vogue, Tatler Magazine and the New York Times. Eden has previously been a sponsor for the show and it is a pleasure to be part of the event once again. The St. Andrews fashion show is running for its 25th year with the chosen charity in partnership with the event being the Brain Tumour Charity.

The second fashion show happening on the same day is at George Herriot School and Eden is providing outfits for the students to model for their catwalk runway. The show is in aid of Cancer Reseach UK. In the few days leading up to the event we had students in the shop for fittings in preparation for the show. A few of the students and their outifits are shown below. Good luck girls!

Eden's mini makeover

You may have noticed over the last month or so we've been busy decorating the boutique inside.  With having paint specialists Farrow & Ball as neighbours next door we couldn't go wrong!  

In the front of the store we've opted for the rich shade of 'Pelt' and in the back room we've gone for 'Ammonite'.  The new colours look fantastic and really make our clothing stand out.

Its now the exteriors turn which will be soon decorated in 'Charlston Grey' (when the weather permits) co-ordinating with our new feature fireplace inside

We would love to know what you think about our new look!
