makes clothes shopping a completely different experience.
It was set up by the stylist Chrissi Rix and her team, who offer you personal advice on what shapes and colours suit you.
The first time I popped in just to have a look and ended up buying eight things. This never happens to me. I have worn every single item many times, and all of them have received compliments. I wore one top to a 50th birthday party in Cumbria, and a woman tracked down my email afterwards as she wanted to know where I had got it from!
It turns out that with a ‘generous’ bust and narrow hips, I should wear tops that have detail at the bottom, to draw the eye, and long accessories like scarves and pendant necklaces. It seems obvious now, but it’s taken me 30 years of adulthood to find this out.
And it wasn’t just about finding the right clothes, I also enjoyed the whole exercise. That is a miracle in itself!
