Oh dear I do love these shoes, I have seen them many times in different colours but the white is just so cool…………… It isn’t a colour I would normally choose to wear but exceptions have to be made sometimes.

Tales from a personal shopping life 6/4/16…….crazy days & ice creams

Good morning everyone and wow what a  crazy few days in the personal shopping suite (House of Fraser Manchester). The diary is full everyday so it is either three or four appointments!! I have to rotate my shoes very carefully as there is a lot of walking involved. (and I still need to wear the pretty shoes)

Monday brought me a lady celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary with a weekend trip to Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons Raymond Blanc’s restaurant/hotel  in Oxford. She just wanted a couple of dresses to smarten up her wardrobe.

Tuesday was a really crazy day but filled with very interesting people. Early morning brought a Professor who was off to a conference today (last minute!!)

Her wardrobe consisted of doctor martins and jeans and she wanted smarter but not too “grown up” As well as a new clothes she also bought three pars of shoes, now thats what I call shopping!!

She is coming back to visit me soon so can rebuild her wardrobe.

Well I am sure I will have a lot more tales when I see on Sunday so have a great week until then.

Cocorose London beautiful ballet flats| Foldable ballet flats |

I am always promising myself that I will buy and carry with me a pair of foldable ballet flats. I constantly try to walk around London in inappropriate shoes for long periods of time and wish that I had pair tucked away in my bag! Well I think the moment has arrived as I love so many pairs on the Cocorose website. The array of colours will mean I will struggle to choose just one pair but I will try very hard! The shoes all come in their own travel bag so they are easy to carry in your bag.

The brand was started in 2007 by Janan the designer and is now stocked in premium stores globally. They have collaborated with my favourite store Liberty and I have featured a pair that include the Liberty print.
