Tales from a personal shopping life 31/1/16

Well I have now completed my first week back at work, the tan is already fading!! It has been a great week and since I wrote last I have had some more fun.

Wednesday was my day off so it was off to the hairdresser to have a much needed cut and colour, I now feel less beach and more city!!

Then I tried on so many things in Zara and bought this denim dress and it is so cute.

Oversized Dress £29.99 This little piece will work with both pairs of boots that I have included and will look just perfect.

Next it was a trip to Selfridges for a good look around especially at the shoes!! I was a little  disappointed that the Isabel Marant Drew boots weren’t there (sad face) but I did try a great pair of Miu Miu pumps. (when I say great I actually couldn’t breath I was so excited)

I will probably include this photo of the green Drew boots until I find them or lose all hope!! I know that sounds dramatic but you cant imagine how much I would like these boots, they have turned into the Holy Grail!!

Will I regret not buying the beautiful Miu Miu pumps

I also tried this rather lovely jumpsuit on in Whistles I would like to buy it but I need those Drew boots.

The back detail is gorgeous and it looks lovely with a tan! HELP





On thursday I had an encounter with a very lovely and elegant lady who needed a chocolate brown cashmere jumper to wear with skirt she had bought last year. I found the jumper for her and now I am going to send her photos of everything I think she might like. Projects like this are amazing for me I just love to look for clothes for other people.

The “mother of the bride” season is well and truly underway as I have had a few this week, it is incredibly satisfying when they stand in there full regalia looking happy. It is the very beginning of the season so I know I have numerous more to come over the next few months.

Saturday is always a fun day but a very busy day and yesterday was no exception, I had a repeat customer yesterday afternoon, she always buys multiple pairs of shoes!! That can only be classed as a dream client!!

The day always ends on the same note the King of Peru always meets me in Toms Champagne Bar, which is conveniently situated outside of my personal shopping suite and we have a drink. I look forward to his appearance at the end of a busy day.

One yellow coat three outfits | Yellow Coat|

When I first spotted this yellow coat in Zara it was love at first sight. People have asked me how many times can you wear it to what does it go with? Well my answer is it is easy to wear and so far I have had no trouble with outfits.

These three outfits are the typical of what I would wear on a day to day basis with my yellow coat.

Every year there is always a few labels that I check for really cool summer pieces. Last summer it a MIH’s chambray playsuit and I obsessed over it for months, this year once again they have a denim dress that for me is a must have. I am already imagining wearing it with either my Acne pink star boots or orange Sergio Rossi sandals! It is even going to Paris with in the summer and I haven’t bought it yet!
