The boutique for every Cambridge woman's little black book..." The Daily Telegraph
Boudoir Femme started out life as Vera Vintage Clothing, a stall, in a local antiques centre, selling beautiful, high quality vintage dresses and accessories from the 1920's onwards.
Owner Pippa started out her working life as a nurse then trainer and eventually marketer in the medical sector but always had a burning desire to work with fashion and clothing!
Inspired by a 1940s movie where the heroine of the film visited her local boutique, took a seat at the dressing table and had her every wish catered to by the ever present shop assistant the vision of Boudoir Femme a boutique where a girl could purchase anything from lingerie to clothing, accessories and even perfume for that special night out, was born in July 2006!
Now 10 years on Pippa has moved the boutique to a larger more prominent location, still on Cambridge's King Street and carrys labels from heritage, UK based brand; MiH Jeans to exciting European brands American Vintage, Maison Scotch, Ganni, Gestuz and Selected Femme, as well as accessories from Denmark and Amsterdam to name a few.... The emphasis has always been on elegant style, quality and luxe fabrics, with an easy to wear look for the women of Cambridge and beyond!
At Boudoir Femme we like labels with a story and we are proud to present unique designers such as Pernille Corydon a jewellery designer from Denmark (a personal favourite with owner, Pippa) with simple lines, inspired by architecture and nature, English Weather Cashmere from Gohar Goddard, artist-come knitwear designer; and niche British, perfumer Ruth Mastenbroek's unique fragrances as the store's signature scent.
We are so proud to launch our brand new website to reach our existing customers who can now check out newly arrived styles in glorious technicolour from the comfort of their own home as well as enabling Boudoir Femme fans to shop our lovely collections from farther afield!
Nothing substitutes a visit to our award winning store with our wonderful Boudoir Femme's on hand to assist with your every need but whether it's web shopping or a store visit we look forward to welcoming you to Boudoir Femme very soon..
Just a few of the things our wonderful customers have to say about us!
Thank you so much for taking such care over my query. It's rare-but all the more valued to find someone who goes the extra mile in today's world- Anna

"My niece's wedding was out of this world with the ocean breakers rolling onto the beach throughout.There were universal compliments for my outfit, although I checked my new sandals at the gate. Nothing but bare feet would work on the deep sand. Not a line was visible through the dress thanks to Pippa's knickers. Thank you both for your fashion consultancy if you get tired of running a market stall & shop, you'd be perfect as personal shoppers!" H xx

"I really enjoyed my visit to Boudoir Femme (and yes I was tempted to buy a few things!). The lady that helped me was really lovely - a real credit to your store. She was helpful, friendly and really knowledgeable and enthusiastic about your products. I was very impressed with her customer service. Thank you - I hope to return soon!"
I came in with my fiance today and I just thought I'd say how pleased we are to have found your shop- we will definitely be back! We thought the service was great and the clothes beautiful- EL
I am writing to thank you for your assistance and to say how very impressed I am with your treatment of this issue. I only wish you were based in Ireland so that I could shop regularly at your store. I will make a point of getting to Cambridge the next time I am over- Anna
