The only way is UP Bloggers!
Especially for me fashioneyestaaaaa!
Did that little melody ring any bells? If you nodded, smiling in agreement, and the letters “TOWIE” crossed your thoughts then you would indeed be right.
Now I’ll gladly admit that I do love a bit of Essex, in particular I love the fabulous Lydia Rose Bright’s unique vintage style boutique-Bella Sorella. Which she co-owns with her lovely sister-Georgia Bright.
Out of all the TOWIE cast, Lydia has always been my favourite out of the Essex girls. her style is very elegant and I love the way she accessorises her outfits with that very quirky and vintage edge. I particularly liked the lovely hat she wore on my visit to the shop.
Lydia Rose Bright is definitely a style icon of TOWIE in her own right.
So, today on this sunny Sunday morning I went to visit the Bella Sorella boutique in Loughton High Street.
The reason I love this boutique is because there is truly something for everyone whether your looking for a stunning evening dress to wear to a special event, a new blouse or even something special for the home.
In Bella Sorella there is truly something for everyone!
The range of clothing that was on offer was superb, there was a wide range of clothing that would suit all budgets, all age groups, and all figures.
Here is a selection of my best buys!
1. Cream Drape Dress
A beautiful cream Marilyn Monroe style dress. Would look amazing for a wedding or night out. I would highly recommend this little beauty!

2. Peach Tiered Pleat Dress
This is a beautiful tiered, pleated, v neck smock dress which will look fabulous for this Winter season. Very elegant and 1920s inspired, I own this one but in mint. It is very flattering to any figure and is great for one of those “bloated days” as it is so loose fitting. The long chiffon sleeves also make this dress great for extra warmth this Winter.

3. Stone Military Style Dress
This dress is absolutely stunning in a neutral stone colour, which will look wonderful with a wide variety of colours. The skater style skirt and the thick waistband adds an element of 1940s style to the dress. With two pockets on the front and 3/4 length sleeves. It is a key, capsule piece for your wardrobe!

4. Black Posey Print Top
This beautiful short sleeved blouse with a mutli coloured flower print on the front looks absolutely stunning. Especially for the upcoming “Winter Floral print” trend.
I also own this top and I love the floral theme, as it always reminds me of the English country garden in “Alice In Wonderland.”

5. Pigeon Print Playsuit
The final item on my top picks is a stunning, fitted tan coloured pigeon print playsuit. With a rounded neckline and 3/4 sleeves, it will look great both in the Summer on it’s own and in the colder months paired with a pair of black tights.

I also fell in love with some stunning pieces of vintage inspired jewellery.
They offer a range of beautiful sterling silver jewellery from lockets, rings and earrings. There is a piece of jewellery to suit every occasion.
They also offer fabulous costume jewellery, fabulous to jazz up an outfit.
They also offer a range of comfy knitwear, so rest assured you can look stylish and keep warm this Winter.
For The Home
Bella Sorella also offer a range of home wear products from adorable, vintage style photo frames, china wear, and a wonderful array of scented candles.
I also treated myself (all be it charged to my mothers account) to one of their amazing scented candles. Being sight impaired I absolutely love scented candles and so I could hardly leave without indulging my nose to a little luxury.
The scented candles all come in cute little tins, which is a great safety feature and also prevents the candle wax from getting dusty. The candle has a fifty hour burning life, so it will last you quite a while. They range from around £8.99-9.99 and at the large size that they come in it’s great value for money!
There were a large number of their new Christmas fragrances, which I absolutely adored.
My top candle picks for this Christmas
Shortbread Scented Candle
Chocolate Cloud Candle
Hot Cinnamon Candle
There is such a wide variety if your more a fan of the floral scents or your more in favour of something warm and welcoming this Winter. You’ll find something that your hooter can sing and dance about.
They would even make a lovely gift for anyone with or without sight.
We event went bearing gifts!
My mum made Lydia her very own Bella Sorella personalised emily-em originals canvas top.
Lydia is pictured on the front standing next to her boutique wearing white palazzo pants and a blue blouse.
Lydia was very chuffed with her bag when she saw it!

The shop was bright and spacious, with an easy open plan layout. The changing rooms were pleasingly roomy, enough room for both you and another person or your Guide Dog.
The staff were all very welcoming and friendly towards me and my Guide Dog. They were always on hand to assist me if I needed a smaller size in something or if I wanted to have a look at their wonderful jewellery display. I also liked the fact that there was no hard sale or pressure to buy. I got the feeling that if I had been a customer on my own as a blind/ partially sighted person they would given me their honest opinion. I’m sure that if something didn’t look right on, they would tell you and advise you on something else.
Quality of merchandise-definite 10/10
All I have to say is go armed with the cash or plastic!
I would highly recommend that you either visit the amazing Bella Sorella boutique or visit the online store. Especially as christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat.
