I have just discovered Kayu a brand new to Mytheresa and I am already in love the Kahuna bag, it has Lima Dreaming written all over it. (I know I am already here but hey I can keep dreaming) I can see myself carrying it on the daily walk to the beach! (it’s a very short walk) and it would enhance any beach outfit.
The bags are all woven by hand which makes them even more special.
I have had a pair of Prada velvet wedges for about 10 years, I hardly ever wear them but they are beautiful and it is just nice to look at them sometimes. Living in the northwest it rains a lot so it is hardly a practical fabric but I do love it.
This season there are so many wonderful velvet pieces and some are more practical than others! Again it is Prada that has sent me into “I love velvet” mode, their shoes are simply gorgeous.
Hello again and yes it is that time again already. It has been a wonderful end to the week in store (House of Fraser Manchester) and once again I will say “I love my job”
I finally wore my blue dress from Zara yesterday and I do love it, it is so simple and my silver Acne Star Boots were the perfect addition!! The fact that I also had blue ankle socks under my boots brought the comment “Oh look at you fancy nancy” you know who you are Gemma!! I have had the socks awhile and there was no planning involved honestly!
Have there been any mini obsessions this week? of course there has!!
You may think I have a bit of obsession with Whistles and yes I do but the reason is there is such a great collection in store (House of Fraser) and I see it every day. NOT MY FAULT!
I had a bit of moment on Friday morning, I realised that my lovely mini doesn’t appreciate being driven in the snow. It took a very galant bus driver and 6 of his passengers to get it moving on a snowy hill. After that I had to call home so the King of Peru could come and help me turn the car around and take it back home. It makes you realise that there are a lot of very nice people out there and how lucky we are to encounter them.
It has been another few days of lovely customers in store for me. On Friday I had a lovely girl just wanting a bit of refresh as she felt she was always in black skinny jeans and neutral jumpers. There was definitely a bit of orange in her wardrobe when she left and she looked amazing in this dress.
Saturday brought some lovely customers, the first of the day was a solicitor returning to work after maternity leave and her friend. It was quite funny because they both bought the same dress from Gray & Willow plus lots more!!
Next up was a lady who had travelled from Maidstone in Kent for a 40th birthday outfit. She didn’t like girly, never wore dresses and didn’t like heels. Well we had a real giggle whilst she tried clothes on but I did find her the perfect dress and shoes.
To end the day I had a young girl looking for a prom dress, no sparkles just simple was my brief and we did find her the perfect dress. Both her and mum are back next week for outfits for a special event in London so watch this space.
Paris Fashion week is well under way and in the last few days I have seen Chloe, Isabel Marant and Dior and these are my favourites images from each.
The Valentino show is on Tuesday so I will share it with you on Wednesday. Have a good week.
I woke up this morning thinking about my annual trip to Peru, it isn’t that far away hurrah. After making a cup of tea I started checking for beautiful things that I can take with me. First stop was Juliet Dunn’s website which always has little treasures!
I really love the dungareenis and I was very pleased to see that 20% of the profits are going to the Royal Marsden, a very worthy cause.
