January is all about facing those winter blues and heading back to reality. By now, most of us have crawled out from our beds and have returned to work after the Christmas break. Not gonna lie, it was tough, but I've discovered a way to make it all that little bit better - wearing lovely clothes that have been tailored, just for you. I think we can all agree that wearing an item of clothing that makes you feel good and look good makes the world of difference, and I'd like to share my tailor-made story with you today.
A couple of weeks back, I was contacted by the lovely Carol from Rita and Phill. It was not a brand that I was familiar with and was interested to find out more. They offered me the chance to experience their products and service; I was to receive a tailor-made skirt. I’ve always wanted to own a tailor-made item, and so as you can imagine, I jumped at the opportunity!
Now let me tell you something first; nothing feels as good as owning something that has been made to your exact measurements, nothing - the fit, the style, the shape - everything just feels that much better. The item hasn't been mass produced to fit a universal size, this skirt was made for me and I'll always know that it is unique to my body.
How does it work I hear you ask? Rita and Phill only need 3 simple measurements for you: your waist, hips and thighs. Those numbers are then entered into their design system, along with your height and a hand-drawn custom pattern is created for your body. Every skirt undergoes its own analysis, and a separate pattern is made for every single different skirt they make, giving their customers a truly unique experience.
Rita and Phill are delightful - the customer service was personal and friendly, and the skirt arrived in the most luxurious packaging (and smelled divine!). Accompanying the skirt was a personal, hand-written note which really helped to place a cherry on top of the entire, personalised experience.

This Rita and Phill skirt is truly a labour of love which is evident from the quality material, stitching and overall finish. From the fabric selection to the construction and stitching, their techniques have been meticulously selected to give the perfect combination of fashion, comfort and fit. Thank you for providing such a lovely service and great range of tailor-made products!
As if that's not enough, the company also has an interesting background, with namesake inspiration taken from one of my favourite Bill Murray movies, Groundhog Day. The whimsical story will make you fall in love with this brand even more and I'm delighted to share this on my blog today, and raise the profile of this company. I encourage you all to experience a tailor-made item – honestly, nothing feels as good!
