Website Reviews: Austique–Online Boutique and Home to Alex Monroe, Marcus Lupfer, Monica Vinader, Spanx and More

Austique is an attractively designed online boutique with an ecelectic collection of designers and brands including Alex Monroe, Markus Lupfer, Monica Vinader, Spanx, Madeleine Thompson and Rebecca Minkoff. As a micro girly department store you’ll find dresses, denim, shoes and bags, jewellery, nightwear, bath and body beauty products and scented candles.

You’ll frequently find items here that you won’t spot out there in the stores or online elsewhere as this is a hand picked range created by sisters Lindy Lopes and Katie Canvin whose aim is to bring together niche designers from around the world, and they succeed in doing just that. It’s well worth a browse.

Right now they’re on sale (inevitably) but there are some new arrivals as well – take your pick.

Austique is a lovely place to shop for clothes, accessories, gifts and treats, and who doesn’t need to be treated at this time of year? I know I do.

Having been to see The King's Speech earlier this week with the daughter just before her departure back to uni I can say for certain that it is one of the best films I have ever seen, and if you haven't yet been to see it please go - it is a real gem. The three kids are all now back oop north so peace reigns here. Bliss. Off on my travels again on Friday. I'll let you know.
