Tales from a personal shopping life 9/2/16…………….

It is Wednesday again, this year is flying by. Later today I am off to Somerset so that I can spend tomorrow at Mulberry. They have been kind enough to invite House of Fraser personal shoppers to take a peek behind the scenes. I am excited!!

I have had a few great days in store since I spoke to you last, yesterday I had a very funny conversation with a small boy! He asked me if I wore contact lenses as my eyes are apparently “too blue and freaky” to be real. He went on to ask me if I knew the difference between longitude and latitude, his teacher must have fun everyday!!

On Monday morning I had two ladies who were off to the Norwegian Fjords on a cruise and needed cocktail hour dresses. One of them was 5ft and a size 20 and was convinced that I wouldn’t be able to find her a thing!! Two skirts and six tops later she was very happy. Her friend bought five dresses, one of being this Linea dress.

Yesterday I think I set a record, I had a mother of the bride who was a beautiful lady and wanted something simple. The very first dress, jacket and shoes she tried on she loved. She apologised for not trying anymore on but she looked stunning, so there was no need. Quite sensibly she also mentioned that it would work for Ascot.
