Bohemian Women - Rosemary Jones

Bohemian Women - Rosemary Jones

The next trailblazing woman I wanted to share with you is Rosemary Jones, who embodies the bohemian spirit and was a source of inspiration for the current collection.

Rosemary is an inspirational woman for her personal journey and work towards educating and helping others. Rosemary was born Robert and struggled through all boys schooling, military placement, and a life she felt she did not belong in or allowed her to be her true self. Rosemary had the courage to take her life into her own hands, transition, and embrace her true self. She uses her own journey and medical degree to provide help to those who are vulnerable, education to those who are unaware, and above all, support to everyone. Rosemary has worked in England, Australia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe, and has also co-founded the Beaumont Trust, a charity that focuses on providing education and support surrounding transgender related issues.

To me, Rosemary embodies the bohemian spirit as she showed so much courage and independence to pave her way in the world and create her own space so that she could be her true self and encourage others to be as well. - A x

Winter gets a bad rap sometimes. It maybe gets more of our bad moods, a bit of impatience about the fact it lacks the amount of warmth and sun we love, it can be hard on our mental health… I choose to look at winter as a time to pause, warm myself up from the inside out, enjoy the dark, enjoy the cool, the clearness of the stars in the night sky, the chance to wrap up nice and snug and let my clothes give me a cuddle, knowing that warmer months are just around the corner and with that…the Spring/Summer range we can get our hands on hahaha!

Grace's Winter Reading Recommendations

July 01, 2023

I love reading all year round but there is something so special about curling up on the couch in winter with a warm blanket, hot drink, and a good book. The best winter reads tend to evoke a cosy feeling and for me that usually means some kind of murder mystery or fantasy book.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR BODY

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.

When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug.  If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.

To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.


Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.  

Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.

Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.

Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
