Don't miss Judy's Vintage Fair this Saturday!

I trust everyone is out enjoying the freak late September sun this week, I can't quite believe I am in my shorts at work! Sadly I won't be able to enjoy a bbq weekend as the rain is coming to spoil Saturday :( however all is not lost as what better to do on a rainy day than perusing round Britain's largest and best vintage fair!! Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair is being held at the Drill Hall, Dalmeny street this Saturday!
This truly is the best fair I have been a part of and is well worth a visit. Rowanjoy and Godiva will be in the main hall from 11am-4pm, selling our best hand picked Autumn/Winter wears, so come down say hi and grab yourself a vintage treasure and get your A/W wardobe started. I have some seriously 80's chunky cardi & knits, a quality range of 70's 80's boot and coats that are not even in the shop yet.
See you Saturday! x

An Autumn with Eleanor's Riot

 Autumn is upon us, though I am pleased to see that this week looks like it is set to be a sunny one, it won't be long until we are setting our Autumn/Winter wardrobes and what better place to start than with vintage inspired label Eleanor's Riot.
Eleanor's Riot is a newcomer to Godiva, but talented designer Fi Mackay behind the label is not. You will usually see her pretty face on the shop floor style advising, assisting and generally being a great asset to the shop.
Eleanor's Riot interpretation of this seasons once again 'must have' The Cape is a extremely feminine version and very pretty.  Made from quality tweed and a lush deep aubergine lining this cape hits all the trend top marks, and oozes Autumn. What makes it is the amount of fabric used, giving it an excellent drape and super swing. I am predicting this piece won't be in the shop window for long, there will be a few more in the production line though stock will be limited, like everything in Godiva.

Underneath the cape is another creation from Eleanor's Riot, the Shift Dress. This Shift designs is the signature piece that propelled designer Fi Mackay into action to launch her new label. Her line of shift last year wear an instant sell out, due to their easy to wear and great fabric combination. This shift, also in store, is made from a super soft suedette. Feel gorgeous and looks great.
The Autumnal outfit has been finished off with a brown felt vintage hat, all styled together by Denise Hawkes and photography by David Anderson.
We are very much looking forward to this season of Eleanor's Riot and more seasons to come!
