Before I went on holiday* I was lucky enough to have been invited to an event at Lilac Rose for Emily & Fin’s latest range (as well as a sneak peak at their next season!) Lilac Rose is featured highly on Independent Cambridge‘s Instagram site** and it’s one of my favourite shops to browse for beautiful things.
As well as jewellery and gifts they sell some of the cutest clothes on the high street and my wardrobe gains another dress every time I can afford it. Established in 2002 Emily & Fin started in Portobello Market and to my mind look to specialise in patterned, cutesy prints. Feminine cuts with Peter Pan collars and flatteringly low backed dresses feature fairly heavily, its all very afternoon tea, punting on the Cambs or meeting the parents. Perfect for Cambridge!

Their website advises ‘we aim to work alongside like-minded businesses; visiting them regularly in order to build strong working relationships and guarantee best practice of manufacture and care’. Being environmentally friendly and trading fairly is high on my list of important aspects when I am thinking of brands so I love that Emily & Fin take this so seriously.
|Yes that's me and yes I've cut my own head off on purpose.|
Emily & Fin are a brand that whilst I may not have been completely blown away by, I am planning to keep an eye on the next time I visit Lilac Rose. It's been a few weeks so I feel a trip coming on soon.
What do you think of Emily & Fin’s Collection?
