Look of the day a Whistles dress layered over jeans….

Now that I am working for Whistles I have the perfect excuse to wear my lovely clothes and call them uniform! (what more do you need!)

However we never have the weather to make use of all of them and in particular the Juana Alisha Print dress so I have layered it over jeans and the result was pretty cool.

Must have item of the day it’s new denim for the new year………..

I am truly smitten with these jeans but as I am flying to Peru (Lima Dreaming) in a few days I  will have to wait until I come back.

I can think of so many pairs of shoes and boots to wear with them.

Tales from a personal shopping life 7/2/16

Here we are it’s Sunday again and another day off! It’s been a very quiet few days     the shopping suite, but not for me, I have been checking all of the new season stock in store. There are quite a few must have’s on my list too apart from a pair of Isabel Marant Drew boots (I know I mention them almost daily!!)

Yesterday I wore my new Zara frayed jeans with my Valentino’s and a Whistles funnel neck top. I must say I just loved the look!

It is always interesting to talk to the concession managers instore and this week I did catch up with Whistles and as always they have some gorgeous pieces in store, I love this Bardot white shirt, it is going to work with the frayed jeans.

My week is never complete without the King of Peru meeting me outside of my suite in Toms Champagne Bar and yesterday was no exception. A bellini for me and negroni for him.

Tales from a Personal Shopping Life 3/2/16

Well it is my day off again, time does fly when you are having fun.

The week started well on Sunday I made a chilli, the first ever, and it was delicious! I was very pleased with myself another dish to add to my small repertoire!!

House of Fraser social media also picked up on my tales on Sunday which was very good.

Monday was an excellent day indeed as far as customers and shopping go.

I had a customer who had never been to House Of Fraser for personal shopping before and she was a dream. She lives on the Isle of Man and came for a work suit but ended up buying loads of workwear and casual clothes too. Even better she is coming back in about 5 weeks to see me again, a very nice lady. It is such a pleasure to shop for people who are so enthusiastic about clothes.

Tuesday brought me completely different challenges, first I had a lady of 82 who was lovely but had a very strict criteria of what she would or wouldn’t wear.  It’s strange but none of those things matter when the clients are interesting.

Sadly my last lady yesterday had a sad story, she needed a dress to wear to a funeral I was so happy that I found her one she loved. It was nice to see her smile a little.

Today I took my beautiful Miu Miu sparkly Mary Janes (see below) back to Selfridges as they snapped last Friday as I was walking across Deansgate, I was a very unhappy little person as I do love them. Happily they are now off to be mended and they will be away for a few weeks, I will miss them as they are so comfortable for busy days.

I have spent many more hours obsessing about the Isabel Marant Drew boots but at the same time I do love my Isabel Marant Danae boots and I have spotted them in metallic on Farfetch

I have been obsessing about a pair of cropped flared jeans but sadly I cant find the perfect pair but I did find these in Zara today and I think they are gorgeous!! (very happy face), I will be taking them to be shortened tomorrow as I cant wait to wear them!! Just love the frayed hems.

To finish on a very bright note as I was walking through Harvey Nichols this morning I spotted this bag and I think you will agree it is beautiful. I have the Victoria Beckham Liberty Tote in bright blue and this is the Quincy tote, it is a smaller version. Pretty sunshine yellow to brighten grey days.
