BRAND: Naomi Purkiss Boutique

Naomi Purkiss Boutique make made to order bespoke clothing, from unusual bright coloured and bold pattered fabrics. Her designs and styles are flattering and unique, and due to the way they are cut many of her pieces would be perfect to wear if you are pregnant.

Here is what Naomi would like to tell us about her Boutique:

NAME OF BRAND/COMPANY: Naomi Purkiss Boutique



WHY WAS IT CREATED: Originating from my obsession with vintage and unusual fabrics, I started designing easy to wear, flattering garments in bold colours and prints. All items are made with carefully sourced fabrics and there are only a few of each made and some are one of a kind. Women feel special knowing they are wearing something unique which will not be found anywhere else.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND: I offer a personal service where customers can choose a garment shape, choose a fabric and choose a length and I will make to order. Items can also be selected from the rail of current stock at my home studio in South London. Alternatively customers can place an order via email. Join my mailing list by contacting me at for information about my 'Top Night' events or follow me on Instagram.

WHAT WE SHOULD BUY FROM YOU: The Kimono jacket is a best seller and a statement piece, easy to throw on over jeans or dressed up for a more glam look. Better still, wear one over a matching, or contrasting, top and 'double up your NPB!'


Smart coats defiantly do not have to be black. You might think it is a good idea to go for black most probably because it 'goes with everything' and 'won't show up the dirt'. BUT when you wear a coat it covers most of your outfit anyway so there is nothing it needs to match, also loads of colours go with everything and there is nothing wrong with not matching.

The coat is the thing that you will wear most of during the winter, it will be the first item of your outfit that people will see so make it good!

Here are a few (defiantly not black) smart coats that have caught my eye:

SONIA BY SONIA RYKIEL £244 / M&S £129 / COS £150 / & Other Stories £165 / Zara £80 / ASOS £85 / Essential Antwerp £345 / M&S £99


When you are a mum you have to carry a lot of stuff with you - one practical way to carry all this stuff is in a backpack.  If you are not a mum you still need to carry stuff - backpacks are generally good for carrying stuff!

They maybe be practical but they can still be cool.  Here are some good ones:

Fjallraven Kanken £67 / Herschel £65 / Whistles £295 / Liberty London £550 / Hype Intergalactic £24.99 / John Lewis £119
