One Striped Skirt Five Outfits| Winter outfits you will love|

I am currently trying to decide what I need in my wardrobe for winter, a new midi skirt is a must. It will go with a variety of tops, cashmere knits, slogan tees and a bomber jacket. I do love the mis matched geeky Gucci style so this playing a huge part in my choices!

From a purely practical point (always practical!!) I have chosen a skirt that will go with a number of different tops so I can wear it on many occasions.

Tales from a personal shopping life 2/7|What I love in House of Fraser|

As you all know I have been writing these tales for awhile now but today it is going to be a little different. I have been home for a few days with terrible earache and sore throat and it has made me realise how much I love being at work (my lovely personal shopping suite).  I do love the store (House of Fraser Manchester) and all of the people! Instead of sharing with you all of the things I have sold to customers I thought I would share all of the things that I would like (in my wardrobe!)

I will also include a few mini obsessions as well. (there will a jumpsuit or two and sparkly pumps)

Whistles is always a must visit department in store, Miss Gemma Randles is always on hand to help and is now in charge, which is great news.

I do love a Whistles jumpsuit (I have a few) but there is always room for one more, and this could be one of them.
