Marc Jacobs snapshot shoulder bags but what colour?

I do love this bag it is probably as perfect as a cross body can get but what colour there are so many to choose from.

I think the straps caught my eye first I do love a woven strap.

The smaller size will fit a phone, card and keys which is just perfect for Lima Dreaming but the larger one will fit a few more essentials for everyday use. What a dilemma!

Then there are sparkles it is like a candy store.

Completely in love with this Sara Battaglia shoulder bag which is long enough to wear cross body (my favourite style). The striped strap and white leather are just perfect for summer days.

Tales from a personal shopping life 8/5………….Prosecco and friends

What a truly wonderful sunny day, I hope you have all enjoyed it.

It has been a very short week in the shopping suite (House of Fraser Manchester) as I had a few days away from it but I still have tales to tell.

My first customer actually lives within half a mile of me, it is a small world. She was off to a wedding in southern Italy but wanted something she could wear again. I don’t think she thought she would find anything for her petite frame, but  she went away very happy.

Next up was a lady who was attending a birthday party with a black tie theme. She had already tried an endless number of dresses so was feeling a little weary. This jumpsuit was an instant success!!

Saturday was a wonderful day even though my first appointment was a no show (so rude!!) I had four friends who always come together and they are lovely. They alway share a bottle or two of prosecco and generally have fun. This time the excuse was one of them needed a dress for wedding but she needed WOW. She fell in love with an outfit almost instantly so spent the rest of the time hugging me. ( I love my job)

These lovely ladies have already booked to come back in October for their winter clothes!! Fun and giggles all round.

Yesterday ended with a young lady who works as Speech Therapist with cancer patients and wanted to look more professional but still young. The pleasure was all mine.

She bought these trousers in black and navy

All of the sunshine has had me obsessing about clothes suitable to wear in the heat, clothes that will go to Lima. I need denim shorts and tops, just simple things to wear with pretty sandals!! I having little success!! Most of the tops are cold shoulder and make me look like a milk maid or a serving wench (not attractive at all)

My current wish list is something like this!!

Well enough of my ramblings for another week, I am sure I will have more obsessions to share with you next week.

Festival Fashion|Floral Headbands|Hunter Wellies|

After watching Radio 1’s big weekend yesterday I decided a floral headband was in order, not to wear here but to take on the annual trek to Peru. My first port of call was Anthropologie and I wasn’t disappointed as you will see below.

After the headband I was really just preparing a “festival wishlist” and I have to say I am not one for wearing wellies but the pale blue Hunters are gorgeous. I am also loving their clear hooded smock’s as it is available in a variety of colours, the clementine is delicious.

Look of the Day Isabel Marant| Coachella Style|Beaded Moccasins |

In celebration of Coachella I couldn’t resist this outfit from Isabel Marant it is so pretty and perfect for the desert heat. The inspiration came from the beaded moccasin as I have been looking at First Nation moccasins here in Canada and lusting after a pair.

The bracelet is from a company that was recommended to me recently.  Puravida (pure life) are based in Costa Rica but deliver to most places. The prices are great and they have endless colour combinations.

Crossbody Bag, could this be the one?

I spend a lot of my time looking for a bag that works for during the day. A bag that will work on the tube and the shops and carry the essentials. This Marc by Marc Jacobs Teal Too Hot to Handle ticks a lot the boxes. I think the colour is a big tick.

Available £260 www.liberty.co.uk
