About Stick & Ribbon
Based in the heart of Nottingham City Centre, we are an independent ladieswear boutique, run by a mother & daughter team, offering you a huge stylish collection of brands to fulfil all your wardrobe needs.
Starting out back in 2009, offering pop-up events and at-home shopping across the East Midlands. We moved to our Flying Horse Walk boutique in 2012, then to our 2nd shop in Bridlesmith Walk in 2014 with a small outlet store in Cobden Chambers. In 2020, we took the leap and moved everything into our Cobden Chambers home!
As well as our range of beautiful clothes and other bits & bobs, we are able to offer you friendly, professional and helpful advice. Our team is trained in colour and style analysis so we will always be able to offer you that little bit more help to make sure you get the perfect piece for you! We recognise that everyone is difference - style preference, body proportions and colouring, so we encourage you to work with and enhance your best bits!

It's all in the name!
We are called Stick & Ribbon as these are the tools of our trade!
Our styling philosophy is based on knowing our body proportions rather than our body shape – as we believe this helps you shop much better than knowing if you are an apple or a pear!
As part of a consultation, we include body proportion analysis.
We will be looking at three elements:
- Whether you have long or short legs (in relation to the top half of your body)
- Whether you have wide or narrow shoulders (in relation to your hips)
- Whether you have a long or a short waist
To do this we use A STICK & A RIBBON!
Once you know your body proportions, we can give you some clear guidelines as to where your hemlines should sit, sleeve lengths, style of jackets etc – all with the aim of re-balancing your body (and often making you look slimmer and taller!)
