Could you really expect a pair of shoes to look any prettier! I have had an on off love affair with backless loafers but with summer on it’s way the need for comfortable but very pretty flats is high. This pair in candy pink patent by Gucci ticks every box for everything everywhere!
Gucci marmont candy pink patent slippers £450 here
Earlier today I was thinking I wish I had flat boots to take me through the hectic run up to Christmas and beyond (retail can be hectic) I didn’t want biker boots and then after looking at many websites I found these. In the flat boot category they are perfection as they would team so well with bare legs (I hate tights) and dresses. They would look pretty cool with cropped jeans as well!
Russell & Bromley Gilbert Tassel Fringe Ankle Boots £265 here
As we all know I am a little obsessed by shoes (understatement I know) but I am on my feet all day in my personal shopping role so they are important (great excuse) I am constantly on the look out for the cool but comfortable perfect pair! (do they exist?)
From past experience the designer pairs are usually very comfortable and I can bring them out sporadically and they always look amazing. My experience with high street brands isn’t quite as good but there some good pairs out there.
This season I love three styles in particular Square Toe Loafers, Mary Janes and Flatform brogues these are my favourite pairs below.
I have never been a “Gucci Girl” but I do feel like I have a crush on these yellow loafers. I can picture them in my winter wardrobe with jeans, a black jumpsuit or a very pretty midi dress, the possibilities are endless!!
Its that time of the week again a day off and as always I have lots to say.
Since I spoke to you last I have had so many lovely customers and all of them so different.
Last Thursday I had a very lovely young lady who wanted to update her work wardrobe, she was tall and slim but didn’t see her self that way at all.
This black Izzey dress from Whistles certainly changed her mind, she looked amazing! I would recommend this dress to anyone the side gathering makes for a very flattering dress indeed.
Saturday is always busy and I do look forward to them, I always try to wear something special. I wore a top and boots by Isabel Marant with Zara jeans and it felt great. It certainly inspired the four lovely ladies that came on Saturday afternoon I replicated the outfit from brands in store. They drank champagne in honour of a birthday in their midst and bought lots of new clothes. They have even rebooked for early May, another appointment full of giggles.
Yesterday I had a lovely surprise a rather nice bottle of champagne was delivered to store from a very kind customer. A huge thank you as it was very much appreciated.
Tuesday morning brought another delightful customer who is returning to work next week. A lady with two children under 3 and one aged 7 just the shopping time alone was a treat for her as she hadn’t shopped for herself properly for quite a few years. It was lovely to see her confidence grow as each outfit was chosen. Warehouse and Oasis certainly performed well for this lady.
The Chinese God of Wealth has been in store all day (House of Fraser) with his entourage and I have to say he looked rather grand but very friendly. They came to have a look around my shopping suite and thought it was very nice, apparently better than others they have seen!
This afternoon brought a serious life lesson in the form of a phone call. A terminally ill lady wanted an appointment to choose an outfit to get married in, she is coming to see me in two weeks and gets married at the end of March. She is planning the wedding at very short notice with such enthusiasm that I found it infectious. I will definitely ensure she has a very special time finding her special outfit.
Afterwards it made me think how easy it is to think we have real problems when in reality most things we worry about are rubbish. Our health is everything and I for one will be looking after mine a little better.
Watch this space in two weeks as Clarins have invited me to have a facial and a makeover, I will tell you all about it.
You might now be thinking about the obsessions I usually have with shoes or bags, well this week it is this Saint Laurent bag, I spotted it online at Mytheresa when I was in Peru but it has jumped up the ranks once more!! Such beauty!
The cold shoulder is everywhere this season and this LBD from Whistles is perfect. I would wear it to work with ankle boots now or something colourful and pretty as the weather warms up.
