Looking for summer sandals then look no further………………..

Sophia Webster never disappoints me, I have managed to make a tradition of taking a new pair of sandals to Lima with me every year. They are always work so well with shorts, dresses, pants and a great tan.  I will probably wear them  all for years as they never date but it is lovely to have a new addition in my suitcase for each trip.

These are all new and I love them all!! Decisions decisions …..

Tales from a personal shopping life 27/3/16……..monochrome and sherbet!

Happy Easter everyone I hope the chocolate is flowing!

It has been a very busy few days in the shopping suite (House of Fraser Manchester) with even more lovely customers.

Thursday was a very busy day and full of fun! First of all I had a regular customer who had her step daughters wedding looming, she said to me “no pressure Linda but I am not leaving without an outfit which I know you will find” Well I have to say it really wasn’t that difficult, even though she is a very petite lady, she left with a beautiful outfit. She also left me with a challenge, her daughters wedding is September and the colours are lavender and yellow!! The challenge is on.

Thursday evening brought me a lady who works in private banking and after a little chat we realised that we knew the same people from Ernst & Young where we had both worked. It is a very small world indeed.

She was such an easy lady to dress and she certainly bought!!, here are a few of the purchases.

Friday brought me a lovely lady who is celebrating her 60th birthday with a black & white themed party, I do love monochrome. A dress that she could wear again was the order of the day and this is the one she bought.

Saturday brought me a lovely lady with a voucher from her husband and she decided that a jumpsuit to wear in Rome was what she needed along with wedges.

Not a problem she looked beautiful in this one.

What has caught my eye this week?? Well as you guess there is always something!!

There is a  white voile top from French Connection in store (House of Fraser Manchester) that has a certain Parisian air about it but I have searched the internet for it and I cant find it!!! You will have to wait until Wednesday for this one, I will find it!!!!

Staying with the Parisian vibe I love this skirt, so pretty and it would go with the French Connection Top.

Zara Playsuit|Contrast Collars|Monochrome|Where can I buy playsuits|

It was definitely love at first sight with this playsuit, it has my name on it. I love anything with a contrast collar and this is just perfect. It is going to look great with bare legs and opaques so I foresee many occasions to wear it.
