Who is Elsie?

Elsie is actually me Amanda . . . and Steve! We own and run Elsie’s Attic with the help of our ever growing team of fashionable Mummy friends.

Our Story

We started Elsie’s Attic from our kitchen table in September 2013 after a career in PR, Psychology, and electrics, we (or should that be Amanda!) just couldn’t suppress the urge to shop!

We initially started by selling vintage inspired occasion dresses but after our lust for fashion* took over, we now aim to sell high quality fashion items to make women look fabulous whatever the time of day or event. *Amanda’s spending obsession!

We have moved on from our kitchen table and have our own warehouse in the gorgeous village of Cotgrave, sunny South Notts and we are so excited about the future.

The future looks fashionably bright . . .

Here in the Attic our aim is to become the next best fashion destination site all your fashion prayers answered on one site! We constantly have an eye on the net, fashion shows and the best of the bloggers to bring you wearable fashion for the everyday and that special occasion.

We take our #styleinspo from gorgeous women just like us . . . busy mums! We adore Fearne Cotton, Holly Willoughby, Kate Moss and Sophie Ellis-Bextor and think we can all rock our own runways . . . even if that runway is the school run.

Elsie’s Attic is definitely the fashion site to watch. We are thrilled to be working with lots of stylists to sme very high profile public figures such as Lorraine Kelly, Jodie Marsh, the Strictly Come Dancing girls and Sarah Powell . . . we have a few more coming soon too!

. . . So, after two house moves, dog number two (say hi to Bertie and Otto the Attic dogs!), a baby (born June 2016), a proposal (wedding July 2017), quite a few sense of humour failures, a few sackings (but thankfully not many), late nights in the warehouse drinking prosecco and eating Chinese, the most ridiculous amount of hard work and many many laughs we are still here and loving every minute of it!
