Christmas Party Dresses

Last week we organised a Vintage in Presents evening at the shop where we previewed our advent calendars and suggested present ideas.  We also added an extra rail to the shop with over 40 party dress ranging from a size 8 to 18 and prices from £15 to £60.  Although it is a little early, we have decided to keep the rail of party dresses in the shop as a lot of our customer are already planning for the upcoming party season.  So here is a little preview of our party dresses.
