We Welcome Jessie Growden Design...

We are the only stockists of Jessie Growden Design in Stockbridge Edinburgh. All her jewellery designs are hand made in the Scottish Borders and she is inspired by landscapes, woodland and nature. Each piece is made from laser cut acrylic and the chains are silver plated or anodised in a range of colours. The larger items create a statement, although there are smaller pendants which are delicate. Each large piece has a JG charm.

For a statement look, we have a necklace from the Celtic animal collection, with the shape of two lions facing each other. The anodised blue chain has been linked by hand and has been secured with a silver plated clasp. The designer loves the shapes from Celtic artwork and this can be seen throughout her jewellery designs.

 

We also stock the petal collection which consists of pendants with two acrylic petals in pink and green, and transparent blue. For more of an impact, we have another statement necklace with layers of petals. There are charm bracelets and rings to match for a coordinated look. 

 

The third collection is inspired by origami and includes geometric shapes layered on top of transparent acrylic shapes. Currently we have the Crane design in a necklace and a charm bracelet. This would be a perfect gift.

The woodland range comes in the form of wildlife creatures. Eden stocks the large fox pendant and four of the small pendants in the shape of a squirrel, a duck and two colour variations of a hedgehog. There are charm bracelets to match which have six individual acrylic charms on each bracelet.

Why not come along to our late night shopping evening, on the 3rd March 5-8pm, to view the full range and enjoy some refreshments on the night. Keep up to date with Eden on our Facebook page.

Karen at St Andrews Fashion Show

Last Saturday, Eden got involved in the St Andrews Fashion Show. It was organised by the St Andrews University Charities Society and we had been approached by some of the organisers to participate by offering a range of outfits from Eden. A week before the show, we began to prepare by selecting the clothing items that Ruth and I thought would be perfect for the show. Here are the outfits we chose, waiting to be collected before the day of the show. 

This fashion show celebrates a range of fashion brands from the well established such as Phase Eight, to independent boutiques like us, and charity shops to show what they have to offer. The show is one of the top events on the student calendar in St Andrews. The fact that this show is where Prince William and Kate Middleton met makes this event very popular! The fashion show has been written about by British Vogue, Tatler Magazine and The New York Times, therefore this show has built up a prestige following and Eden was more than happy to be a part ofit. 

This was the 24th year of the St Andrews Fashion show and this year the money raised was donated to SANE, a mental health charity. The raffle included some very special prizes such as “The Fendi Experience”, which is a trip to Milan to visit a famous fashion house. Unfortunately we did not win but it I was glad to make a donation to the charity.  

As Eden was a sponsor for the show, I was allowed to go back stage before the show started. There were rails of clothing all labelled and ready in running order for each model. As with any fashion show, there were tensions and excitement back stage. Here are some photos of the back stage actions. 

The show was very professional and modern with a DJ on the stage and goodie bags. The audience stood around the catwalk as the models stepped elegantly. Here are more photos of the show. 

 

Here is a video of the Eden outfits on the catwalk. 

Thank you very much to Lauren and Tashi who got in contact with us from the University, we appreciate being involved in the fantastic show.

Wardrobe edit with Satisfashion

As the new season deliveries arrive I thought it was about time to have a proper wardrobe clearout, from time to time is essential to keep your style fresh, to make more room for new purchases! and to see what you already have before you hit the shops.

Firstly i thought about trying this method - 

Turn all the hangers the wrong way round and then each time you wear something put it back the right way round.  After a month have a look at the items that haven't been worn and then decide their fate but as its a complete pet hate of mine I didn't think this would work for me.

empty hangers

So I decided to call in the expert - Laura Russell, personal shopper, stylist and fashion blogger from Satisfashion to help me.

We chatted first about what I wanted to achieve and my style and then went through my whole wardrobe sorting into piles of clothes as we went along.  Laura gave me lots of suggestions and some different ideas which I have been trying out.

I discovered I only own 1 skirt, not very many jumpers and possibly need to buy some different shoes and boots!  I also tend to wear things a bit oversized and layer a lot too.  I could also do with maybe a little bit more colour.

So maybe I should buy this coat!

I now have a much more organised wardrobe (and bags of clothes destined for the charity shop and eBay)

I highly recommend Laura from Satisfashion and am now looking forward to some more shopping (when I get the chance) with a clearer focus of what to buy.
