Happy Sunday everyone even though it’s raining!! Where has the sunshine gone. Since I spoke to you last I did have a beautiful day off in the sunshine. I had my highlights done and then had a little mooch around the shops with The King of Peru.
In Selfridges I spotted this dress by Isabel Marant, it is my absolute favourite piece this year so far!! and it looks amazing on. I have been playing with different shoes for different looks!!
Isabel Marant Etoile Vinny Dress £220 here
The dress was a cause for celebration so cocktails then a delicious steak rounded the day off nicely.
I have been searching for the perfect cold shoulder top for weeks but unfortunately most of the fabrics are too stiff and they don’t drape properly. Well the search is over and I think you will agree this top is beautiful by any standard.

What has been happening in the personal shopping suite this week (House of Fraser Manchester). Well as always it has had a succession of lovely people passing through.
Monday brought me a mother of the bride who wanted something different!! This is always an interesting statement as it usually means exactly the opposite, but this time, I think you will agree it is not a traditional mother of the bride outfit.
One very happy mum and daughter.

There is always something that I see that takes my breath away (yes really and my sleep) and these slides have done just that. The colour is amazing and I can see them on all of my trips this year Barcelona, Canada and the annual Peruvian adventure (denim shorts and tanned legs).
It is also a bit of a tradition now (I love traditions that involve shoes!) that I buy a new pair of Sophia Webster’s every year.
