It's the wedding season again and with that comes the dilemma of what to wear. We have been styling Falkirk's Finest Females for 21 years and understand the need to get the right dress for the occassion. We stock styles for all shapes and sizes and budgets. Kevan Jon, a British designer based in Huddersfield is one of our favourite labels to stock in the boutique. Kevan's fabrics, styles and attention to detail make the brand our first choice for girls looking to make a style statement on the wedding guest list. Kevan's dresses are investment purchases that last forever, classic designs..

Buying A Prom Dress
Its the time of year that girls start to think about their prom dresses. What style? What length? What colour? Here at Sisters Boutique we have a dedicated area of prom and occassion wear to ensure you have the space and time to try on as many gowns as you want and to spend time with one of our specialist staff who understand what shapes suit different figures. A girls prom is one of the biggest events in her childhood and it deserves the time and effort involved when selecting her dress. We sometimes have girls visit us two or three times before choosing their dress ( usually the first..
Summers Coming
Yes, you read it right! I mentioned the summer word. A thing that usually happens in Scotland on a Tuesday once in July. Fear not! This year will be different and if it is not then at least we had hope! I love the Spring Season. Already the nights are getting longer and its not pitch black at 5 pm anymore. The sale is over in our shops and we are now fully stocked with Spring Summer styles. Shopping for new clothes at this time of year can be challenging, which is why we stock up on basics that can be layered and worn with lots of pieces you already own. I always advise girls to buy key..
Winning Awards
Last week was an amazing time for me and my career as a buyer and boutique owner. I've been buying women's fashions for 19 years and must be quite good at it as the industry awarded me with the huge acolade of Best Individual Womenswear Buyer at the PURE Power Buyers Awards in Olympia, London on Monday 3 August 2015. The event was well attended by buyers and brands and what has made it extra special for me is all the awards are Peer nominated so once you are shortlisted you then had to nominate who you think deserved to win. That for me was the best part, as I did not hesitate to recommend ..
How many times have you went to a sale only to be disappointed?  Small discounts, old stock from seasons before and any excuse to run a promotion. Here at Sisters we dont do what the High Street does with discounts constantly on the go. We are quite confidant that the Sisterhood likes newness and a deal when its been around long enough. So our online sale starts this weekend and with it stock is reduced by 50%. We have had a terrible summer in Scotland this year and going on sale almost screams that summer has come to an end but it hasn't. Seasons have changed and that is why we re..
Here at Sisters Boutique we will not be taking part in the crazy American promotion of Black Friday. It is after all an event in the USA where people buy elecrical items at reduced prices. Why then its turned into an excuse for every retailer and brand to go on sale is beyond us. In the UK clothing brands and shops are doing this for one reason only, to make money out of the public by fooling them into believing they are getting deals on clothing that already has been priced so it can be discounted to look like a bargain. We have always had true sales, we dont go on sale every five minu..
The clocks have changed, Halloween is a memory and Bonfire night has came and went so we are now officially on the countdown to Christmas. The best selling fashion gift in the UK is UGG Australia boots. It's no wonder, especially in this country where we suffer from cold damp days and can struggle to feel warm. UGG Australia boots are the answer. They are made from Grade A Sheepskin, ethically sourced from all over the world. UGG Australia boots are quite simply heaven on earth, there is nothing more luxurious than slipping your bare feet into a pair of Grade A Sheepskin boots which wra..

Taking one for the team
Being known for being up for a laugh and happy to raise money for charity, I was not surprised when I was nomitated to do the Ice Bucket Challenge. Initially I thought, "Oh no, I can't be bothered" however, after a few seconds, my mind went to the laugh it would give my team, letting them soak me and then I figured if they get to see it why not all the customers too?  So there it was, decision made, my challenge would happen at the shop the following day. Anyone who shops with us knows that we are not the average boutique. Anything goes, and usually I have to be the guinea pig. I'd..
Okay as weird as it sounds, would you ever go to the dentist for a haircut?   Probably not, so why, when you go for a haircut would you expect to buy clothes?  The real reason you see this is usually because the salon is not very good at the art of hairdressing  and need to supplement their income. Any decent salon never has a rail of frocks or a row of accessories as they are too busy concentrating on the career they chose and the one they excel at.  A  hairdresser takes years to train and they spend hours learning the health and safety aspects of their trade ..

You will see it on all sorts of celebs from Holly Willoughby to Michelle Keegan. We now stock it in three colours, silver, gold and rose gold and we even have bracelets to match. ..
New Season New Blog
Fashion works in seasons. Despite Mother Nature challenging this process, we do still have two seasons in this industry with one being Spring Summer and the other being Fall Winter.  I’ve just returned from London where I have been viewing new collections for the boutiques and talking to current brands we stock and giving them feedback on what the “sisterhood” like us to stock.  The crazy thing is, I am ordering for SS15 and we don’t yet know if that will be a winner or a washout. The first thing I keep in mind is my customers. You are a very loyal bunch and that makes me even..
