Simply Spruiking... Frocks at The Rocks



Nancy Rose ($150) in white


After a brief cool respite, Sydney is warming up again.  I would normally complain, but I've got a secret weapon against the heat this summer... well maybe not so secret.  My shipment of gorgeous linen smock dresses and a few cotton tops has arrived, just in time for my first weekend selling at The Rocks Designers Market this weekend!  


The range is designed by my aunt and made in India (in fair and ethical conditions), where she now lives and works for part of the year, and they are the perfect pieces to live in this summer - trust me, I am already!  The simple, classic styles are perfect for throwing on over your swimmers at the beach with thongs, or dressing up with heels and some jewels.


Here's a few quick pics.  I would have loved to have put together a better photo shoot, but every minute counts for sewing my Simply Camille necklaces at the moment (which I couldn't resist including in a few of the snaps).  If would like to see higher res images, please let me know (comment below or email me).

The above Nancy Rose style was an absolute hit at the trade show where my aunt first showed this range, and judging from the initial response to my first post about this little range, it will be at the markets too. It's available in sizes small, medium, large and extra large, and due to the style, the sizes are quite generous. Market price $150.



North Shore ($140) in black

It was hard to capture how flattering the North Shore dress, above and below, is on the mannequin.  It's such a simple piece, but the cut of the hemline lets it skim the body beautifully.  This one comes in three colours: black, beige and striped, and two sizes - small/ medium and medium/ large.  Again, the cut and style mean that the sizing is quite flexible.  Any questions, please add a comment or contact me directly.

Last, but not least, the Kate Top below.  I've only included photos of the white version, as my black mannequin didn't do justice to the black version.  This top is amazing - it's a free size but suits all shapes and sizes (the cut of the sleeves provides rooms for bigger busts).  It looks gorgeous over jeans, shorts, leggings or even a perfect light top to throw over your swimsuit at the beach.

I will be at The Rocks this weekend and next, and into January, depending on how sales go.  Please drop in if you are in Sydney!


Simply yours,
Phoebe
