Good morning everyone and what a beautiful day! I will certainly be making the most of it later with a walk in the sunshine.
It has been an amazing few days since I spoke to you last with lots of clients passing through the shopping suite (House of Fraser Manchester)
One of the highlights was a phone call from a client I had in March, a lady with terminal cancer who married at Easter. She called to say thank you for finding her a beautiful dress and making her feel special. We are meeting for a coffee soon so I can see the wedding photos. I feel very honoured that in-between chemo living life she thinks I am worth the time.
Thursday started with a very bubbly young teacher from the Isle of Man who needed a wardrobe refresh. She certainly enjoyed herself and says that is worth the trip to come and see me again soon. Leggings were her wardrobe staple but they won’t be anymore!!

Next up was a young lady off for a trip on the Orient Express and she was very excited. The shop was so much fun as she just needed everything for days in Venice and nights on the train. I love this sort of brief!!!

Thursday ended with a lady looking for an outfit for her 40th birthday party. She wanted something wow that she could wear again. Her only request was NO jumpsuits as they never fit properly. I sneaked this one to the rail for her to try and guess what she bought? RESULT

Friday morning started with a very lovely lady who needed a refresh and a dress for a Baltic cruise. She bought nearly everything I gave her as in her words “you listened to what I wanted and understood”

Well I am happy to report that the blue book is still fully operational which means that I haven’t actually been wasting money!! It is a real test as I am surrounded by clothes and shoes every day in store and I keep torturing myself about this navy (I do love navy!!) jumpsuit, it will look great with all of my shoes (and the one’s I don’t have yet!!)
Warehouse Culotte Jumpsuit £59 here
It will look pretty cool with these Kurt Geiger pumps that I am still obsessing about!!
Carvela Lotus Pumps £110 here
Bomber jackets are definitely a trend for spring summer and there are lots on the high street but this one by Gucci is just gorgeous! You only need a small lottery win for this one but it would be worth saving for.
Gucci Lace Bomber £1260 here
I will leave you with this alternative which by the way would look great over the navy jumpsuit!! (just an idea)
Zara Printed Bomber £39.99 here
I hope you have a beautiful week, see you Wednesday.
