Must have item of the day THE perfect crossbody bag………

Finally I have found the crossbody bag of my dreams (I am being serious) I have tried many and looked at hundreds but this one is a perfect size (a huge plus) the colour is amazing (hmm the same as my rock stud sandals, a small minus) and it goes across body (massive plus)

Fashion  maths tells me it is perfect just don’t wear it with the sandals simple!

Just loving Mulberry Mini Lily|Small Cross Body Leather Bags|

Once upon a time I used to have a a yellow Mulberry mini Lily bag, this bag has found a new home Canada!!! ( I visit it often!!) As I am always on the look out for the perfect cross body bag I was delighted when I spotted this blue mini Lily in store the other day (House of Fraser Manchester) The detail on the chain straps is just gorgeous and the price is perfect. It easily takes cards, phone, keys and a lipstick, what more d you need!

It comes in many colours but these are my favourites:

Tales from a personal shopping life 28/2/16…………….

Time flies, my bi-weekly updates seem to come around very quickly.

It has been a beautifully sunny week which always lifts my spirits and it is light when I leave for work on a morning! BONUS!

I have had a great few days in store since I spoke to you last, there are lots of nice pieces appearing. (for me as well as my customers!)

On Thursday I finally wore my Whistles culottes, I have had them awhile and finally found the perfect Kurt Geiger shoes to go with them (I have had them ages too). This was the result:

Culottes by Whistles Cropped Sweatshirt by French Connection White Collar by COS Shoes by Kurt Geiger.


My first customer arrived in a whirlwind of gym gear and sheer enthusiasm! She had 45 minutes to spare and declared she was going to a conference and needed smart casual clothes urgently. Forty minutes later she left with 2 Whistles dresses, 2 French Connection Tops and an Oasis long cardigan, a very happy lady!

This is one of the dresses and it is so flattering and is available in quite a few colourways.

Whistles Freesia Print Frances Dress £140 here

Next up was a lady with a very grown up job, a Consultant Anaesthetist, she definitely did not like anything “girly” She commented that she was relived I was wearing  culottes etc and not something girly!! Another happy customer when she left with a leather skirt and new tops.

On Friday I had the pleasure of Jordana who is the new personal shopper in Leeds. A very lovely and stylish young lady (we share a great love of COS) so if anyone is thinking about a personal shop House of Fraser in Leeds you will not be disappointed.

We had the honour of meeting an 82 year old lady who wanted an outfit for her granddaughters wedding. She was very specific on the colour, it had to be the colour of the scarf she was wearing, thankfully Hobbs had just the dress and jacket. She was adamant she wasn’t wearing a “fantasiser” she did laugh when she realised it was fascinator!! After trying the dress she sat in the Toms Champagne Bar and enjoyed a drink whilst listening to the piano. A really lovely lady!

Hobbs Albany Dress £179 here

Saturday brought another lady who was semi retired and needed clothes other than suits and scruffy!! (her words not mine!)

She bought quite a few things but this Marella dress was the star and we teamed it with a Whistles long cardigan.

Marella Marcia Shirt Dress £175 here

I have to admit that even though I am still being very good, (that means I haven’t bought anything this week) there are quite few things that have caught my eye!!

Now it os time for my mini obsessions, this dress by Marella is gorgeous and it will look great with all of my pretty shoes!!

Marella Lace Dress £210 here

If the strap on this Whistles Chase bag is long enough then this could be my “perfect” cross body bag (the search is endless!!)

Whistles Chase Whipstitch Bag £185 here

I also love this dress from Zara, it is very cute and once again I do have the ankle boots to wear with it, although a white pair would look better (oops don’t have a white pair!!)

Zara Dress with contrast collar and hem £29.99 here

I think it is only right I finish with my favourite image from the Prada Autumn Winter show, as you all know I do love PRADA



See you all in Paris! (Chanel, Valentino & Miu Miu!!)

Bag Alert Chloe Baylee Tote | SS14 Totes|Crossbody bags|

New obsession alert, I have been searching endlessly for a few days now for the “perfect” bag for my lifestyle and here it is.

This is great it will take my mac when needed and all of the other “essentials” that I carry around. The strap is long enough to go across body, what more could I want!
