Must have item of the day Whistles bardot top and it’s navy…….

I am so excited by this top why you may think, well  it’s a bardot and it’s navy so the combination is perfect. I do hope that it turns up in store this week (House of Fraser Manchester).

It is a top I would wear so many times with jeans and my beloved side striped pants.

This is how I would wear them.

Tales from a personal shopping life 22/5….Time for the Soap Awards

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

A whole new wardrobe was the brief and it was certainly a lot of fun.

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.
