Little Mistress by 'Minnies' Collection arrives at Pink Flamingo

The team at Pink Flamingo loved the Little Mistress by Lauren Pope collection this Spring Summer. So when we heard that Little Mistress were going to release a collection in collaboration with 'Minnie's Boutique' we couldn't wait to get our hands on it!

'Minnie's Boutique' opened in 2011 in Brentwood, Essex. The boutique is owned by Sam and Billie Faiers from 'The Only Way Is Essex'. The boutique reflects their glamorous, unique Essex style. The girls love the Little Mistress brand and jumped at the chance to collaborate with them. The girls wanted to design a capsule collection, inspired by their own style that could retail at affordable prices. The result is a collection of sophisticated party gowns releasing just in time for Christmas! 

Sam and Billie feature as the faces of the campaign looking beautiful as usual!

This sweet floral prom dress is guaranteed to get you in the party mood! In a floral chiffon fabric, with intricate beading featuring on the halterneck and around the waist. This dress is available in sizes 8 - 14 and is priced at £60

If you are looking for something a bit special for a New Years party, this is the perfect party gown. This maxi dress comes in a light dusty pink fabric with an embellished bust, sheer skirt and removable straps. Available in sizes 8 - 14 and priced at £70
