Hear from the team and friends of Wilson Trollope on the thoughts they are taking into the new year!
"I’m excited for 2024. I can’t believe another year has passed! Three key thoughts I am taking into the new year:
Carolyn Taylor is a long time friend of WT and an inspiring woman we love working with. You may recognise her friendly face!
"The vibe I hope to take with me into 2024 is fairly simple. To not sweat the small stuff, to be stable, solid and flexible in all things, and to continue to invite joy and laughter into simple moments. Life is made up of small simple moments, so choosing to be 'light' and present in those means a lovely life ticks by!"
Our amazing Resident Artist, Claire Redford, who turns our store into a mini gallery, and long time friend of WT. Be sure to check Claire's paintingshere.
" Wishing the Wilson Trollope team a very merry Christmas and a congratulations to Annabelle on the arrival of darling Thompson. This time of the year can feel overwhelming. So, if you find yourself struggling, I hope you have someone close you can turn to. Sending love and hugs to all. And the wish for peace on earth feels very much needed this year. Arohanui, Claire"
"In 2024 I want to be more mindful about finishing whatI start, whether it be following through with catching up with friends instead of just talking about it, or finishing some of the many craft projects I have on the go at the moment.
To help myself along with this, I also want to be more purposeful about what projects and commitments I take on, making sure I give value to my time and don’t bite off more than I can realistically chew."
"This year I want to further explore my hobbies, and pick up new ones! Whether that be trying out difficult recipes and new cooking techniques, contributing to my reading goal, improving at music, design and illustrating, or even just adventuring in parts of the city I have not visited before. I want to stop living for the weekend, and make the most of every day!"
"In 2024, my goal is to have a deeper sense of gratitude in my daily life. I aim to consciously appreciate the moments and people around me that enrich my experiences. This awareness will show the beauty of things in my everyday."
"In 2024 I’m going to practice being more mindful, and try to find a moment of calmness every day!"
"2024 is going to be the year of acceptance and appreciation! Lets take every day as a lesson and navigate the highs and lows with courage."
Wishing you all a wonderful start to 2024! Love all of us at Wilson Trollope xx

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.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Annabelle – email@example.com, she is here to help.
