FAMILY VALUES - 8th June, 2011


Inspired by our Asos blog post dedicated to our company founder, Hazel replicating her mum's outfits with the original clothing, we got to thinking like Carrie. Is our personal style inherited or individual and unique to us? Well, one piece of evidence in favour of the discussion is the style of Zoe Kravitz, daughter of Lenny and 1990's style icon, Lisa Bonet. Take a look...you decide (said in Big Brother voice).

Here is classic Cosby parenting and Denise Huxtable aka Lisa in action, we miss this!

SECRET GARDEN PARTY - 6th June, 2011

Here at Rag&Bow we like to get out and about so we jumped at the chance to visit the world famous Chelsea Flower Show. On the day we loved people watching, vintage hanging basket buying and seeing TV fav, Diarmuid Gavin, presenting from his ‘Irish Sky’ suspended garden. It won both a Gold medal and The RHS People's Choice Award, tidy!


Also not to be missed was the undercover Great Pavilion - a hot bed of 110 floral displays. It got slightly hectic as the heavens opened and thousands of people descended in to take cover. Unfortunately we rather optimistically declined the free plastic poncho so did the same.


Rather bizarrely we then stumbled across the Burgundy Brocante, online seller of French antique and vintage objects. We fell for their vintage seed labels but you can also check out their wares in person at the Ardingly Antiques Fair, our personal fav.

SUPER STYLE ME - 2nd June, 2011
