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.

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.

Isabel Marant Etoile Serek Silk Skirt £235 here



I am completely in love with this dress from Finery London, it is gorgeous and reminds me of sherbet! (two shades the back is pale pink yummy)

Hilgrove Contrast Panel Slip Dress £59 here


Well I shall leave you now to enjoy the rest of the bank holiday weekend, for me it’s business as usual tomorrow.

I shall see you again on Wednesday with more news.


How many ways can you wear black?|

I have never been a fan of wearing black as I think it s very dull but I have recently found myself in the  position of having to wear black five days a week. I am looking upon it as a challenge and enjoying it., although I have to admit the fake tan is coming out shortly so that I can ditch the black tights.

The black may fade to navy upon a few occasions as it makes the whole outfit look softer.

I had very pieces to build this new work wardrobe on, an Isabel Marant black skirt and a Zara slip dress were about it so what did I buy?

This black dress with a blue trim works great with my chain ankle boots or my wardrobe staple blue Acne Starboots. It will also work well with bare legs and Birkenstocks.

Zara Studio Dress £69.99 here

This Black skirt with tie belt is a great shape and again looks great with my chain boots and most tops in my wardrobe. It is also going to look great with Birkenstocks.

Zara Skirt with Belt £39.99 here

I need lots of tops like this one in black or navy (no one will know the difference!!!)

Zara Gauze Top £19.99 here

As well as my black jeans I thought these palazzo pants would work well especially as the weather is getting warmer. They are certainly easy to were with any of my tops.

The crowning glory in my working wardrobe is this biker jacket, the colour is gorgeous and makes everything else look great.  It also works great with my jeans so it will get a lot of wear!!
