It's All About Towie

For the majority of us The Only Way is Essex, also known as Towie has become a must watch program, even for those of you who say they would never watch this reality television series we have been bombarded in the press and media for the lovable, hilarious, fashionistas of Essex.

Towie has fast become one of those addictable brands and we at pink flamingo have enjoyed watching all the dramas, fashion, beauty and gossip that goes on in the wonderful world of Essex!

While watching the latest episode The Only Way is EsseXmas we couldn't help but spot the delightful Miss Lucy Mecklenburgh wearing the red version of our very own Rise Jewel Turquoise Dress! She's teamed her dress with a beautiful white fur hat, black tights and black patent sky scraper shoes with the finishing touch being her sparkly red nails, we think she looks ever much the ultimate style queen. A perfect ensemble for the festive season.

The Pink Featherettes can't wait for the next series to start to have our little fix of Essex fashion back! Even though we have our boutiques in Kent we still love our Essex style neighbours :)

A Dickension Christmas Market In Rochester

This weekend saw the Dickension Christmas Festival come to Rochester, Kent where streets were alive with entertainment, readings, song and dance.
Packed with quaint shops including our very own Pink Flamingo Boutique and culinary delights, Rochester becomes a feast of Victorian history. There were lamp-lit parades, choirs singing carols, Father Christmas made an appearance and pretty twinkling fairy lights all framed by Rochester’s picturesque Cathedral and Castle.
The Rochester Dickensian Christmas Festival has been held annually since 1988. Medway held a special place in Charles Dickens’ life and work; the famous writer spent five of his childhood years in Medway, he returned for the last few years of his life, dying at Gads Hill in 1870.
Rochester is also home to the Dickens Christmas Market open Wednesday-Sunday until the 18th December 2011. Set in the beautiful grounds of Rochester Castle overlooking the River Medway and just a few steps from Rochester’s picture-postcard Victorian High Street.
Come along and enjoy a truly festive atmosphere with the castle walls illuminated in traditional Christmas colours and trees filled with sparkling fairy lights, the smell of roasted chestnuts and mulled wine fills the air amongst a wonderful array of German style wooden huts selling a wide range of hand-crafted goods and a festive fair complete with it’s own big wheel with views across the River!
Once you’ve had your fair share of Christmas fun pop down to the High Street into Pink Flamingo Boutique where you will find some beautiful new Cath Kidston collections including some pretty vintage style gift sets and Stunning party dresses by Darling. We also have some fabulous snow boots in store (just in-case the snow starts falling!)

Congratulations To Darling!

I've decided to dedicate this blog spot to one of our favorite brands Darling, I'd like to congratulate them on becoming winners of the Drapers Fashion Awards 2011 as Womenswear Brand Of The Year!

Please see a small section about the Darling brand below taken from the Darling website:
"Having launched in 2008, Darling has grown to become an award winning and exciting independent global women’s clothing brands in just four years.

The Darling range is the vision of Nadia Moraes, the London based designer and entrepreneur who created the label. As an independent boutique owner, Nadia spent many years sourcing pieces for her shops and was inspired to launch her own collection by the lack of affordable, beautiful and stylish clothing available.

Ultra feminine, vintage inspired and quintessentially ‘English’, Darling’s unique brand identity is behind the success and popularity. But it’s not all about the English Vintage Looks, subtle design details in the clothing highlight an independent edge that is valued by the Darling retail network and worn with personal passion by the women who eagerly await each season’s new approach and exciting range. Darling offers affordable luxury product with an emphasis on quality and attention to detail.

Celebrity ‘Darlings’ include Kelly Brook, Anna Friel, Peaches Geldof, Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby, and Darling has graced the pages of Elle, Marie Claire, Grazia, Look as well as featuring on shows including X Factor, GMTV and Celebrity Juice."

For your own fix of the Delightful Darling brand visit one of our Pink Flamingo Boutiques in Whitstable or Rochester, Kent.
