Here’s the fruits of our labour from the shoot last Wednesday. I don’t think I’ve ever had a more fun on a shoot (there was a trampoline!), or been more pleased with the results. A fantastic, hard-working team; we were there for six hours and all did this in our free time – I really appreciate that everyone did that and was so professional and enthusiastic.

With a huge thanks to Ellen and Ursula of Fox & Bhut for the beautiful clothes and stunning location.
St Andrews duo Fox & Bhut have relocated their girly emporium, returning to their roots selling their signature girly wares at festivals in their recently acquired and revamped 1950s airstream trailer. The ‘F&B Bus’ will be on the move, so look out for its location on their website. They set up shop on Market St last week, inviting a flurry of excitement and collective enthusiasm for their new venture. The brand’s roots, selling at festivals, makes them a perfect option of course for your own girly festival style. The overriding sense of joy and femininity, and the story behind the clothes make them much more unique than your average high street offering. The ethical conscience, clarity of vision and creation of the antithesis of throwaway fashion makes them sustainable and unique.
This is a preview of their new stock, with some of their classic past collections thrown in for good measure. The Trollied Dolly dresses with peter pan collars, buttons, polka dots and ribbons couldn’t be more girly. The versatile length and flirty shape combined with these details make for an explosion of retro style with a modern twist. Throw in some eye-poppingly bright florals, Stella McCartney-esque fruit prints and a nipped in waist and you’ve got a modern nostalgic look.
Wear them with festival staple wellies (such as the chic pictured wedge wellies), or tough boots to give a masculine edge to an overtly girly ensemble. Add some bright, retro sunglasses or modern, kooky shaped frames to complement this look. Think hippy with the rest of your look: wavy, bedhead hair, plaits and flowers.
The beauty of these dresses is their versatility- styled up or down, for day or night, festival or pub, ball or lecture.
