Hello and a happy Sunday to everyone. Another week has flown by in the personal shopping suite in HOF (House of Fraser Manchester)
As always it has been a busy week with lovely clients. Before we start with the tales I have to mention that I amazed myself yesterday! I never really look at white tops or dresses (especially dresses) not even to wear in Lima, but I tried this little number yesterday and I love it. It will be seen in a few weeks in Valencia. It is going to be a blank canvass for my very pretty sandals!
Oasis Metal Trim Cami Dress £40 here
More of what I am obsessing about later, my week started with a wedding guest (nothing unusual there!) She had dragged her husband around several towns and cities but hadn’t found anything she liked. Luckily she absolutely loved this Coast dress.
Coast Berlin Print Amena Dress £95 here
We teamed it a black chiffon shrug.
Damsel in a Dress Amelia Rose Shrug £69 here
On Tuesday I had a regular client who has to follow all of the modesty rules of her religion but loves clothes and fashion. She has a fine knit tee/vest to go under absolutely anything and can be very creative when needs must!
Coast Meslita Skirt £95 here
We teamed it with this top from Whistles which I happened to be wearing and she loved.
Whistles Double Strap Bardot Top £95 here
We also had a discussion about casual footwear (she was wearing in her words “ugly” shoes) and I suggested KG espadrilles as I wear them when my feet are a little tired! As soon as she tried them her old shoes went in the box and she left the store in the new espadrilles.
KG Mellow Flatform Espadrilles £99 here
On Thursday I had the lovely Annie Wallace from Hollyoaks who is off to the soap awards soon. Whilst she wanted to look glamorous she also wanted to be comfortable. We soon had an outfit that she loved.
Chesca Double Layer Chiffon Cami £80 here
Chesca Chiffon Trousers £125 here
Finished off with this Chesca Steel Satin Back Coat £125
Next was a very lucky birthday girl, it was her fortieth and big sister was supplying the treat.
A whole new wardrobe was the brief and it was certainly a lot of fun.
Whistles Helena Jacket £140 here
Whistles Flavia Bardot Top £125 here
Whistles Molly Jersey Jacket £95 here
Whistles Split Shoulder Top £50 here
French Connection Kiki Palm Top £35 here
Mint Velvet Camden Biker Jeans £79 here
Mint Velvet Peplum Tee £69 here
And there was so much more, a very lucky little sister.
Friday brought another lady who is about to celebrate her fortieth only this time she is off to Las Vegas. The only brief I had was “make me fabulous”.
Karen Millen Floral Dress £160 here
Ted Baker Alexie Forget me Not Midi Dress £149 here
That is enough of clients for today I think it is time to revisit my obsessions and at the moment they revolve around my forthcoming trip to Valencia. I have two Isabel Marant flippy skirts which I will be taking with me and I have found the two perfect cami tops to team with them.
Whistles Blaise Silk Cami £85 here
Oasis V Neck Cami £22 here
The next one isn’t for Valencia but it will be perfect for Lima with denim shorts.
Linea Weekend Haven Top £45 here
I also spotted these KG sandals yesterday and I do love them but I also know I don’t need them!! You have to admit they are very pretty!!
KG London Blanca Flatforms £199 here
Well that is enough of my dreaming for this week, I hope every one has a great week.
