Competition time: win a Bewitched DVD box set

This month we're giving away the complete first season of Bewitched on dvd. Samantha may be the star of the show but as far as we're concerned her mother, Endora (below), is the real style icon. We even named this dress after her.

This Emmy Award winning series contains 36 episodes. Check out the wonderful opening credits here. To enter this competition simply sign up to our newsletter via this link. The winner will be chosen at random on April 24th and notified by email. Good luck!

Opportunity to 'upcycle' a stunning 1930s dress

We bought a gorgeous 1930s silk velvet gown at a textile auction last year. Sadly the fabric is so fragile (and has now torn in places) we cannot sell the dress in the boutique. So... over to the upcyclers! Many of our followers on Twitter are very talented designers / textile fetishists / creative seamstresses so we decided it was best to hand over this gorgeous dress to those who could rescue it and perhaps transform it into something else!

Check out the link here: Ariane 1930s Dress (named after the heroine in Albert Cohen's Belle de Seigneur)

This dress is free although we charge for P&P. If you want to pick it up from our studio in WC1 there is no charge and you have the option of selecting that at the checkout.

Our dresses at the V&A Ethical Fashion event

Last week stylist and fashion PR Katie Antoniou gave a talk on ethical fashion at the V&A Museum of Childhood. Other speakers included designer and V&A trustee Betty Jackson, Guardian columnist Lucy Siegle and stylist Jocelyn Whipple.

Juno Says Hello dressed two models who took part in Katie's talk. The 1950s red lace party dress is available to buy here, and the 1930s blue velvet frock is available to buy here.

A big thank you to Katie for getting us involved in such a great event.

Get in touch with us via Skype!

Juno Says Hello runs a fashion clinic via Skype once a fortnight. All you need is a basic (free) Skype account and you can access our group video chat. Clinic times vary so let us know if you want to join in via this link and we will make sure you are kept in the loop.

Clincs operate as an advice exchange and can also be an opportunity for a bit of wardrobe show-and-tell. At the end of the clinic (which usually goes on for about an hour, and you can join in at any time) I show a selection of our dresses that aren't yet online. We are buying a lot of stock at the moment so you can expect a sneak peek of at least 10 dresses! If you see one you like you can make an appointment in our central London studio to try on, no obligation to buy.

We also provide personal consultations via Skype, absolutely free. Just contact us via this link and let us know how we can help! We can recommend a seamstress, help you track down a outfit for a special occasion or dig out a specific dress you've seen online.
