Water makes up approx 70% of our body and 90% of our brain. It is recommended that we drink at least 8 glasses of water a day so that we remain healthy and vitalised. Since our brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted! So if you can not manage 8 glasses of water we are offering you the alternative – eight items of water based clothing per day. Any complaints from partners then just point to the label and tell them it is water, a vital part of your daily requirements!

Summer is coming and the call of the sea is strong in Alexandra’s as we have taken delivery of our new Summer stock.
Seasalt has swept in with clothing based on their love of the sea and Cornwall, and this year have reached out across the Channel to include our cousins in Brittany, with many designs based on the Breton Countryside. We are dressing it up this summer with a host of lovely dresses from seasalt. It is hard to pick a favourite as they are all stunning in one way or another, so I have chosen three for today. For everyday wear there is the Seasalt Riviera Dress II Corde Fleur Cobalt, with capped sleeves, in a soft jersey, this dress falls to just below the knee. Then there is the Seasalt Golden Sands Dress in Indigo Dye which is also in soft jersey, but has the appearance of denim and is slightly shorter. For a hot summer’s day we have the sleeveless Seasalt Gylly Dress I Pont Aven Pansy Ecru, as suggested by the name, a pretty pansy print in pale blue, navy blue and ecru with daubs of brick red and mustard to add that je ne sais quoi to this beautiful dress. It has a scooped neckline and the bodice ‘tucks’ into the waist band which is fitted and the skirt then falls from the waistband in pleats to just below the knee And what has this to do with the sea? Gylly refers to Gylly Beach near Falmouth!
From the Mistral collection there is the Mistral Beach Strip Dress, Insignia Blue Multi. This easy to wear jersey cotton dress, falls to just below the knee and has a crazy pattern of stripes, dots, dashes, pebbles, and if you look closely, .. Beach Huts! And what could be better on a lovely day by the sea, but an ice cream, and Mistral have supplied this in the Mistral Reversible Ice Cream Skirt. One one side there is a ice cream cone pattern on a soft green background and on the other, a soft pink background with a ‘spirograph’ type pattern in pinks and blues.
Thought Clothing close our seaside theme with the Thought Voyage de Jeanne Skirt. An ecru background is decorated with tall ships, maps and a sailor figure, which is Jeanne Baret dressed as a man. During the mid 18th Century she was the first woman to circumnavigate the globe but had to go disguised as a man. An expert botanist, she worked along side Philibert Commerson cataloguing the plants and flowers that they discovered. The skirt is also decorated with beautiful line drawings of the some of the plants that they discovered. To add a bit of dash to this skirt it has a stunning floral pattern of a plant in green and fuchsia pink. Possibly, the Bougainvillea plant that was named after the Captain of her ship.
So ….. just let me be beside the seaside I’ll be beside myself with glee For there’s lots of clothes for me to buy Beside the seaside! Beside the sea!
