Introducing House of Ollichon

House of Ollichon cialis online miglior prezzo

I’m so excited to introduce you to my lovely friend Hannah Ollichon’s amazing new online boutique – House of Ollichon who make an incredible line of beautiful alternatives to the classic wedding dress. The focus from House of Ollichon is on beautifully made bridal jumpsuits and combos including culottes and pretty feminine tops. I have been bowled over by the originality of the designs and I must say it feels like a breath of fresh air to see some beautiful alternatives if you just don’t fancy doing the whole white wedding dress thing.

All of the pieces for House of Ollichon are handmade here in the UK and the prices are very enticing – especially when you compare with the prices of a handmade wedding dress. I personally adore the ‘Lockwood’ (named after Hannah’s maiden surname) – it’s so pretty and elegant and allows you to feel feminine without having to wear a dress. The Lockwood is priced at £580.

The Jeffrey

I am also blushing *a lot* as one of the lovely pieces was named after yours truly! When John and I get married, my surname will be Jeffery – and you can check out the piece with this name here. I asked Hannah why she named this particular House of Ollichon piece after me, and she said it was because all of the sparkles in the beautiful feature on the front reminded her of the crazy sparkle nail varnish I used to wear when we worked together in our early 20s! The Jeffrey is priced at £475.

Stella and Dot Wedding Jewellery review

I recently attended a fund raising event run by my good friend Amy at her house in Nottingham. Amy had invited some local business owners along to sell their wares whilst also raising money for a good cause.


One of the business owners was a lady called Lucy, who runs parties for Stella & Dot (and very kindly donated some of her profits on the day). I was immediately drawn over to her stand, as the jewellery was beautiful – very feminine and delicate, just my type of thing!




I immediately homed in on a pretty crystal, chain and cord bracelet which was for sale for £15. Lucy told me that there was a matching necklace and that if I bought the two together, it would be £40 with free postage – I was sold! I placed the order there and then and Lucy confirmed that my jewellery would be sent out to my home address and should arrive during the week.

My package arrived from Stella and Dot within a couple of days and in totally gorgeous packaging!



I always love buying myself gifts (any excuse will do!) but think that these would make really special thank you gifts to your bridesmaids or perhaps for your Mum or new Mother in Law.




Stella and Dot sell online and via Hostess organised parties in your home. You can see more online here.
