Denim is a trend that in my opinion will never go out of style. It is a trend that has been repeated throughout the decades, from Rock “n” Roll denim jackets in the 60s to flared jeans in the 70s. Denim is something you hold onto for years. It is not just a t-shirt you will wear once and never see again. From its sturdy material, clothing is made to last, which means they are timeless pieces that will last you a lifetime. Denim skirts were seen a lot on the runway for Spring/Summer 2019 in shows such as Coach and Sacai. Below is also a picture of our denim skirt, now in store.
B.young blue denim skirt: £49
In my opinion everyone needs a good pair of jeans and a denim jacket in their wardrobe. Unfortunately finding that perfect pair of jeans can sometimes be almost impossible. I have selected a few options below of jeans from the store. They each offer something different, catering for multiple figure types. My personal favourite is the kick flare blue denim jeans from b.young. If you want to make your legs appear longer than they actually are, then these are the ones for you. The kick flare is also a flattering size and won't make you look like not an extra from Saturday night fever.
Selected grey skinny jeans: £60
b.young blue kick flare jeans: £39
b.young black jeggings: £29
Selected black kick flare jeans: £20 (SALE)
Double denim. What do you think about it? I personally think when styled appropriately it can look great. However, when I hear those two words I automatically think of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in their matching “unique” double denim outfits from the American Music Awards in 2001. This duo gave us one of the most memorable red carpet looks of all time, however also managed to give double denim the bad rep that it still has today. If you think you can make double denim work then I would love to see. Send us a picture and show off your unique take on the denim trend.
See you next week.
New brand alert!!! I would like to introduce you to Mees, our latest label at Eden. Mees is a Turkish brand established in 1989, that offer stylish clothing and accessories suitable for all women of any size and age. Their collections are designed by in-house designers who follow the latest trends and developments in the fashion sector. Mees are a brand that strive to make women feel good about themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin by the clothing they choose to put on in the morning.
I would describe the Mees style as a modern twist on traditional items. As seen from the pictures bellow, they style their clothing with current accessories such as bold sunglasses and chunky trainers, which are then seen in their catalogue and on their website. By doing this they are allowing themselves to cater for a young audience as well as a slightly older market that may style the garments differently. This shows the versitslity in their clothing and how they can be adapted to make the same outfit look different and suitable for a number of occasions. There clothing is also at a high quality with products being sturdy and practical from the reliable fabrics used.
Below are a few pictures of items that are available in store. There are lots of pieces perfect for this Spring/Summer. The collection in store reminds me of the Tommy Hilfiger style from the variety of stripes and similar colour palettes. Mees are pieces that can been seen as a great investment. They will be part of your wardrobe for a long time from their timeless styles and high quality materials.
Get yourself down to the store to have a browse before it’s all gone!!

This week Eden went buying for Autumn/Winter 2019, with a trip to Glasgow to select new items from the Nomads collection. Nomads is a brand Eden has stocked for a number of years now, being a favourite of our customers. Nomads is a natural, hippy style, fashion brand that are dedicated to creating beautiful clothing with ethical values. This year they will be celebrating 30 years in business with their journey starting in 1989. Nomads stands out against other brands - from their environmental decisions to create clothing made with eco friendly, ethical practices, to the traditional artisan techniques used to create detailed patterns and soft prints, perfect for any occasion.
Trying not to give too much away, Nomads did not disappoint with their new collection. Picking our selection of items proved difficult as the majority of the clothing items were strong, offering something new for everyone. However from trying on all the items and getting a feel for how they look on the body allowed us to pick out a number of great pieces. Colour pallets of green, pink, blue and orange were seen through out, showing a vibrant and colourful theme. Large scaled prints are back, using floral and checked patterns in greater segments, creating unique and original pieces. I have intserted a few pictures below from Karen's show room displaying some of the new clothing.
Stay tuned to find out when our selected items will be in store and available for you to purchase.

I always seem to fall in love with the most ridiculously expensive things in shops, when I realise I’d have to take out a second mortgage to afford it. If you are anything like me, you love a good copy of designer pieces but more importantly the affordable prices that comes along with them. It is laughable how much celebrities can spend on their wardrobe, so I wanted to show you how to get the same look for less. Looking around the store I started to notice a huge amount of similarities in items that celebs have been wearing in the past few weeks. Here are just a few examples of how you can get the same look at a fraction of the cost.

Megan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, Blouse: £22 (SALE)

Forget breakfast at Tiffany’s, Ralph is now hosting the most important meal of the day at the his famous flagship mansion on Madison Avenue. The designer transformed his venue into a Parisian styled cafe, serving cups of tea with a selection of pastries for his selected guests. This wasn’t your usual fashion show, with Ralph stating himself that he “wanted to create an intimate experience to share my vision in a more personal way”. The collection took a modern approach on structured and straight lined garments, portraying a message of empowering women. The mix between military styled suits and delicate gowns, showed a great balance between masculine and feminine clothing. These sleek items showed a colour scheme of black, white and gold, which created a Bond girl and expensive feel. I have inserted images bellow of my favourite pieces from the collection that made a lasting impression on me.
