Bug prints!

Usually at this time of year, we're inundated nautical and floral prints. Of course, we love them very much, but we also love the unexpected and different, which is why our featured item is this fantastical bug print play suit!

By Pretty Vacant, the play suit is made out of 100% cotton, with buttons down the front, spaghetti straps and insert pockets. Super cute, with a darker edge, printed all over with dark blue and dark red bugs.

Check it out!

Super stylish people wanted!

Are you what could be descibed as an independent fashion icon? Are you a vintage freak? Super geek? rocking a look that no one else would dream of? A customisation queen? tattooed from head to toe? A victorian dandy? Yes? Then we want to see it!

We've been talking to our friends as 247 magazine and each month we're going to be featuring 12 of the most stylish people in Plymouth and the South West in the magazine for all the world (or at least those in the South West) to gawp at in fear and awe.

Want to be involved? Then all you need to do is send us a pic of you working your best look to info@fortyfiveclothing.com with your name, age and where you live. If we feature your picture then we'll ask you a few more questions about your outfit.

The best look of the month, as chosen by us, will win prizes from our store....

We love Lucy!

We are loving the fab Lucy dress by our favourite dress brand: Emily and Fin. This elegant sleeveless A-line dress, gathers at the waist for a super 1950s style look. The back is slit to half way down with an eyelet back and finished with pretty buttons.

Fully lined with side pockets, for all those little essentials or just slouching around in. Choose from black polka dots, red polka dots or the super pretty coral polka dots. Perfect for weddings or riding bikes through Oxford and Cambridge with a puppy in your basket, stopping perhaps for a romantic picnic or punt along the river.

Check out the whole Emily and Fin range in store here

More tasty treats being posted soon...

Design a t-shirt competition

We've teamed up with the Plymouth University based Designers Society to run a t-shirt design competition.

After the success of their poster competion back in January, the t-shirt competition will give you the opportunity to see your t-shirt on sale in Forty Five! [with you getting a percentage of the profits too]

The theme of the competition is 'Open', so interpret this how you will, and we will look forward to seeing what you come up with.

To enter, you need to submit a t-shirt printed with your design to the Designers Society or into Forty Five on or before 14th May - please note this deadline has been extended from the previous deadlin of 7th May.

You can print your own t-shirt, or pop in to Forty Five to get it printed by us ~ we're offering a special deal of £9.99 per t-shirt, including the t-shirt.

For more info, check out the competition brief on the Designers Society web site or email us on info@fortyfiveclothing.com
