Mrs W Tutus was set up by Kate Winchurst, a Fashion Graduate with a passion for creating beautiful bespoke tutus. These stunning tutus enable anyone to look and feel like a fairy princess. The perfect addition to your special occasion, a wedding or birthday, or even just for feeling fabulous!

I absolutely love these gorgeous tutus. With a range of bright colours to choose from, Kate can create bespoke tutus to match your individual style and taste. There is no age limit on these, so anyone can feel like a fairy princess whether you’re 6 or 60!

Are you unhappy with a petticoat you have recently bought online which doesn’t match up to your expectations? Pimp my Petticoat is Mrs W Tutus latest service. Mrs W Tutus offers a fabulous service where you can send your petticoat to her and she will add ribbon trim, custom made bias binding  (in things such as superhero print material etc), extra layers of net/Tulle etc until it’s exactly what you were hoping for! It’s an excellent service, enabling you to create something personal and unique.

It is so important to take care of your tutu to keep it in tip top condition! They are very delicate in nature so need to be carefully looked after to make sure it keeps looking fabulous. Tutus should never go in the washing machine, and if possible a tutu should be hung up to ensure it keeps it fluffy shape! For more handy tips on looking after your brand new tutu take a look at Kate’s handy list for Tutu Care.

26. Miss Magpie Fashion Spy

My featured business this week is… Miss Magpie Fashion Spy!

static1.squarespace.jpg

I have been meaning to feature this fabulous business for a while now. I first spotted Miss Magpie Fashion Spy on Twitter, which was then followed by Instagram which in turn has led to me becoming literally obsessed with trawling through the different designs on her website.

MMFS_020.jpg

Below I have included some of my favourite designs (and you’ll see the reason for my obsession!) These most fabulous fashionista designs are definitely something to brighten your day whatever the occasion. I also love how the designs are detachable, so when it’s finally time to take your birthday cards down from the mantlepiece (trust me, in my household it takes a while to admit that a birthday is over..) then they can be popped into a cute pretty frame and treasured forever!

MMFS_019+(product+shot).jpg

These gorgeous illustrations are drawn by Niki Groom who has worked with some of the biggest names on the high street and has been featured in fashion magazines and blogs which are famous in the fashion world.

static1.squarespace.png

It’s easy to see why. Her designs truly represent an essence of fashion that every lady (or man) aspires to. I love how each design is so unique and within her stationery range there is something for every occasion. Be aware though, these designs are too fabulous to give away – so you might just end up buying one for yourself and having to buy another for your friend/family/cat.

Want to see the illustrations for yourself? Pop into Accessorize on Oxford Street to see the most beautiful designs adorn the walls.

Miss Magpie Fashion Spy also has a cute Christmas card collection so make sure you check it out by clicking here to view the full range available.

A Very Belated Birthday

With all the chaos of starting a new full time job and various other bits and pieces I totally forgot to celebrate Pretty & Petit’s first year anniversary! My first post, promoting a small business called Hugo’s Workshop was written just over a year ago and was posted on 28th September 2014. Click here to take a look!

Screen shot 2015-11-08 at 12.37.58

I’m so pleased at how this blog has developed over the past year and I hope you enjoy what I put on here with the mix of fashion, beauty, events and small business promotions. Please do let me know if there is anything you want to see more (or less) of! Let’s see what 2016 brings!

To celebrate my very belated birthday I will be hosting a competition on Twitter to win a goody bag of prizes from some of the small businesses I have worked with over the past year. Keep an eye out and make sure you follow and retweet for your chance to win!

I’m off for a slice of cake!

#LoveMe Challenge – Day 17

Prompts

Something that feeds your soul

Acts of kindness, sharing and giving are all definite things that feed my soul. I like to motivate and inspire people. Through my current job I feel I inspire young people into looking into different career paths through different areas of study. I try and encourage them to think outside of the box by thinking about their skills and then associate them to different careers. I really like to motivate and inspire particularly those who feel as though they may have lost their way slightly or are unsure of what they would like to do in the future.

For special occasions I enjoy creating gift hampers for people. I recently created a wedding hamper filled with treats for a friend of mine. For my sisters birthday I created a hamper full of her favourite things decorating the top with a chalkboard as she has just started a new job in a primary school. I really enjoy personalising gifts and to show that I have put some thought into them.

Do you create your own gifts? I’d love to hear some of your ideas for personalising your gifts.

I came across jewellerybox.co.uk at the #bigbloggersconference that I recently attended. Each blogger received a cute little gift from them which was beautifully wrapped up in brown paper. My gift was a set of stunning earrings with bracelet of a pretty little flower.

When visiting their website I was pleasantly surprised! There was the option to choose by jewellery type, metal type, by occasion and by recipient – which makes choosing a gift for someone super easy! Perfect for special occasions or when you’re not sure what to get someone for their birthday. It’s also perfect for having a browse on a rainy afternoon.
