Delve into Baba Ganoush's imagination

For a while now I have been contemplating coming up with a design that can been worn to accessorise a dress or top in an imaginative and glamorous way and in walks the designer of,my now new favourite newcomer label, Baba Ganoush.
I think you will agree she has a beautiful imagination when it comes to these bolero type shoulder pieces, some like a sequin collar necklaces and some like jeweled shoulder covers. Add sparkle and glamour to that dress you love but bored of wearing again and again. These brilliantly constructed works of art have just arrived in store, just in time for Christmas!
We love these!!
start price £29 -£70

Tuesday fashion pics of the day

Photographer Trish Ward used some Godiva Vintage dresses for a shoot she did for a new online Scottish fashion magazine called SLAVE. We love these recent picture, loosely based around the work of painter Gustav Klimt.
We look forward to working with Trish again soon. x

Its not often we talk menswear, but these new Breton cotton tops are a great hit for menswear in the Godiva showroom. Great feel and great fit, additionally worn with the new vintage look duffle coats we have been pretty chuffed to please our male shoppers in store this season. Great for gifts too! The stripe breton top also come in red and white stripe. xx

Made to Measure Gift vouchers!

For this first year every we have decided to create a Made to Measure Gift Voucher!!

The Made to Measure service is really what makes Godiva stand from the crowd.

The Godiva boutique wonderfully creative and highly skilled tailoring team have really enjoyed another year of creating one-off dresses for those ladies who wish to stand out from the crowd at that wedding or event. Especially as the very affordable prices we create them for.

We at Godiva think this is one of the best Christmas Present ever for that lady or friend in you life!!!

The voucher is valid for a year so there is plenty of time to decide on what the dress should be created for and when.

Make that lady or friend in you life very happy this year!

Call the shop on 0131 221 9212 or email for more details on pricing and ordering.

Love Godiva xx

good skills with hammers to ice

It's been quite a week of snow, snow and more snow. Thanks to everyone that turned up to the customer evening last night, I was in fact surprised that people made it through the snow, but we had a lovely night of wine drinking and shopping and the highlight being the custom made cupcakes, sprinkled with mini gingerbread men & candy canes.
The genius of the night was also our use of real snow for the wine cooler!
This morning however the hangover was cleared as designer Rowanjoy and I took to clearing the deathly ice from the front path of the shop. We began with some hot water and shovel, we were receiving quite few strange looks and laughs from car drivers. We then turned our skills to hammering the thick ice with small hammers! which in fact does work just a wee bit slow. A workman felt sorry for us and kindly leant us a larger spade. I can confirm that Rowanjoy is not just a highly skilled fashion designer but also got some great skills with a hammer and shovel to ice. Great way to start the day!
