July Slice of Cake

Updated: Jan 22

Let's Adapt and Embrace It

It’s all been about the dungarees this summer. I think as the weather has not been as fabulous as we had hoped our summer shift dresses are still gathering dust in the wardrobe. So let’s embrace them.


I have lots of great colours, lots of different styles and from £30 up to £48 not expensive. I have worn my pair to death, channelling Meryl, as my husband keeps pointing out.

I have also got plenty of the relaxed style of linen trousers, again in different colours.


Some great tops, bright summer scarves and lots of small summer clutch bags.



I have all of Carlos from Chic & Unique crochet dresses in the shop, which are just great for that St Tropez look.

I am introducing Lila who makes crystal stone jewellery at very reasonable prices, each piece is unique. I now have a few big rings made from silver spoons as requested.

A dear friend and talented artist Valerie Irwin will be exhibiting her Change in Charcoal, her response to the demolition and construction at Cranfield’s Flour Mill and Ipswich Docks. An amazing body of work that Valerie completed which amounted to over 4,000 drawings and 25 sketch books. Before it is completely catalogued and be made ready to be housed in The Hold  we get a rare opportunity to see some chosen pieces which will be on display in the Whistler Gallery at DanceEast from 26th July. I urge you to go and take a look.

I think that’s just about enough information. Ipswich has a wealth of events happening over the summer, just check out these links to see what’s on. https://ipswich-waterfront.co.uk/ https://allaboutipswich.com/events
