Where we'll be on New Year's Eve!

Brighton always goes quiet over Christmas - loads of people go away to visit family. New Year is a different matter entirely. come the 31st Dec it all kicks off and goes mental. Everywhere is rammed and there's some right old sights. Last year we went to Lucky Voice, got pie-eyed on Buddah beer and sang our tits off 'til 4am. Then walked home barefoot. Classy.

This year we're going to Born Bad, the most excellent rock and roll night in Brighton. I'm really looking forward to a good old fashioned knees-up, I'm quite partial to a bit 50s and 60s music(those that have seen my record collection will confirm this as FACT) and I'm getting more and more into rock and roll as I get older. Born Bad play some really obscure stuff so I know I'm in for a treat. I'm already planning my outfit. It has to be dressy but danceable so am thinking the By Malene Birger Pepina sequinned jacket, and black ski pants with lowish kitten heels so that I can strut my stuff. No bag - husband can carry keys, money and lipstick. I'll probably get some kind of quiffy action going on - poundshop hairspray is the best for keeping my 'do in place on dance nights. What are you doing NYE?

New Wildfox Sweatshirts now in store @ nola

A quick heads up to let you know that we've had an early drop of the new season Wildfox sweatshirts (not due until January but we've got a couple in). Made from the usual amazing soft soft fabrics, each style shown is £95. Not yet on the website but the Wildfox tees and sweats fly out so they won't hang around for long.

Jingle balls at nola

Here's our Christmas window - please excuse the picture, my camera (and photography skills) are rather shabby. Still, you get the idea. We've decided to focus on jewellery this season and we think that the display of our Zoe & Morgan, Alex Monroe, Disney Couture and Jacey Withers collections is really eye-catching. Priced from £15 to £350, we've got lovely pieces to suit all budgets.

With thanks to Alexis and Ian from FentonForeman in Brighton for assistance with the design and contruction.

American Vintage SS11

I'm off up that London on Monday to buy the SS11 American Vintage. If you are unaware of the brand, American Vintage is a French basics label set up by Mickael Azoulay in 2005. Focusing on good quality fabrics and simple easy to wear pieces, American Vintage is best known for it's layering styles.

We've been selling it in nola since 2005 and our customers love each new collection and buy it by the armful! Next SS11 sees the label focussing on beautiful soft neutral palettes which are fantastic for the Spring. They have introduced some brighter colours for the Summer drop - mustards and sky blues add colour pops to our wardrobes. And again, the fabrics are soooo soft yet durable!

Can't wait to see it!

The only way to travel

Well the snow has ground Brighton to a halt, no trains, buses and walking is a pain in the butt. I was strolling through Churchill Square (after having my eyebrows threaded by the lovely Simon at The Brow Studio) and was fantasising about alternative forms of travel during snowier times and I came across this! Now, for those of you who know me, already know that I adore a pony, but to own a mechanical fantasy pony would just blow my mind AND solve all my travel woes. Especially if it could fly too. And have a heated saddle, and have a place to store gin.
