We Are An Independent Ladieswear Boutique, Run By A Family Team.
Located in the heart of Nottingham City Centre, we are an indepedent boutique specializing in women's fashion. Our boutique, run by a family team, presents an extensive and stylish array of brands tailored to meet all of your wardrobe needs.
Starting out back in 2009, offering pop-up events and at-home shopping across the East Midlands and then opening up our first boutique in Flying Horse Walk in 2012. We have since moved into small alleys & arcades around Nottingham including Bridlesmith Walk & Cobden Chambers, finally finding our home in our destination, high street boutique on Bridlesmith Gate.
Our journey commenced in 2009, offering pop-up events and personalised at-home shopping experiences across East Midlands. In 2012, we opened our inaugural boutique in Flying Horse Walk. Since then, our path has led us through charming alleys and arcades across Nottingham, including Bridlesmith Walk and Cobden Chambers. Ultimately, our search for the perfect location was completed with our move to our flagship high-street boutique on Bridlesmith Gate.
In addition to our carefully curated collection of garments and accessories, we offer a personal touch. Our team is well-versed in colour and style analysis, ensuring we provide that extra touch of guidance to help you discover your ideal piece. We celebrate individuality, understanding that each person possesses distinct style preferences, body proportions, and colour preferences. Our aim is to work with you to accentuate your finest features and elevate your personal style.
As Seen On...
At the core of our styling ethos lies the understanding of our body proportions, a perspective we value more than conventional body shape classifications like an 'apple' or 'pear'.
As part of a style consultation, we include body proportion analysis.
We look at 3 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 and a RIBBON!
Once we 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 rebalancing your body (and ofter making you look slimmer and taller!)
Stick & Ribbon is more than just a place to buy the latest fashion.
