Cloth Magazine


Thank you to Cloth Magazine for featuring Starburst in there latest issue. This is what they had to say:

If you're down Devon way pop into this pretty boutique for an adorable dose of grown up gorgeousness  After working as an in house fashion PR for Lulu Guinness and Oasis, Starburst owner Hannah Jennings decided to take her passion for fashion in a new direction. She opened Starburst Boutique in the pretty coastal town of Dartmouth in 2008, stocking a mix of niche UK and international designers with the aim of catering for the 30+ fashion savvy shoppers. 

" I adore print, colour and texture so im drawn to buying interesting pieces" Says Hannah " I also love well made and constructed basics such as our double weave Breton tops from Armor Lux to the oversized Mongolian cashmere jumpers by Cash Ca. I also wanted to include affordable luxury items such as the £10.00 Miller Harris mini candle or a beautiful silk Codello scarf for £25.00 for those instant I need a pick me up moments"

We are pleased to announce that Starburst Boutique got voted as one of the top 100 independents in the UK by trade magazine Drapers. This is the second year that we have been voted in and we are well chuffed!

People Tree SS13

We have dabbled with People Tree since we launched in 2008 and I have to say that at the moment the award winning eco brand can do no wrong. My key early seasonal picks at pocket friendly prices include the soldier top designed by Peter Jensen and the Maggie stripe dress from the mainline collection.  Prices from £35.00

And from the mainline collection..

New Season M.I.H

Looking sharp on the rails is the SS13 drop from M.I.H. Old favourites are back  in the shape of the London and Paris Jean's ( all in classic shades of Navy, Indigo and White)

Paris Jeans in White £139.00
Paris in Navy

The London  £159.00  - Mid Rise gentle Bootcut

 but please welcome into the mix the radical Bonn in the surprisingly wearable Pollock print. High in the waist and skinny in the leg the super stretchy material means that they are ultra comfortable. Pair them with the oversize M.I.H shirts in white or chambray or a slouchy knit from Cash Ca ( coming soon) for a spring look you can wear now

The Bonn in Pollock which works well with the following...
