Hello again and yes it is that time again already. It has been a wonderful end to the week in store (House of Fraser Manchester) and once again I will say “I love my job”
I finally wore my blue dress from Zara yesterday and I do love it, it is so simple and my silver Acne Star Boots were the perfect addition!! The fact that I also had blue ankle socks under my boots brought the comment “Oh look at you fancy nancy” you know who you are Gemma!! I have had the socks awhile and there was no planning involved honestly!
Have there been any mini obsessions this week? of course there has!!
Whistles Bay Crepe Jumpsuit £160 here
Whistles Payne Leather Jacket £350 here
Whistles Foldover Clutch £90 here
You may think I have a bit of obsession with Whistles and yes I do but the reason is there is such a great collection in store (House of Fraser) and I see it every day. NOT MY FAULT!
I had a bit of moment on Friday morning, I realised that my lovely mini doesn’t appreciate being driven in the snow. It took a very galant bus driver and 6 of his passengers to get it moving on a snowy hill. After that I had to call home so the King of Peru could come and help me turn the car around and take it back home. It makes you realise that there are a lot of very nice people out there and how lucky we are to encounter them.
It has been another few days of lovely customers in store for me. On Friday I had a lovely girl just wanting a bit of refresh as she felt she was always in black skinny jeans and neutral jumpers. There was definitely a bit of orange in her wardrobe when she left and she looked amazing in this dress.
Oasis Stripe Dress £60 here
Saturday brought some lovely customers, the first of the day was a solicitor returning to work after maternity leave and her friend. It was quite funny because they both bought the same dress from Gray & Willow plus lots more!!
Gray & Willow Pia Layered Jersey Dress £49 here
Next up was a lady who had travelled from Maidstone in Kent for a 40th birthday outfit. She didn’t like girly, never wore dresses and didn’t like heels. Well we had a real giggle whilst she tried clothes on but I did find her the perfect dress and shoes.
Ted Baker Beryll Ethereal Poste Dress £179 here
Carvela Sophia £99 here
To end the day I had a young girl looking for a prom dress, no sparkles just simple was my brief and we did find her the perfect dress. Both her and mum are back next week for outfits for a special event in London so watch this space.
Paris Fashion week is well under way and in the last few days I have seen Chloe, Isabel Marant and Dior and these are my favourites images from each.
The Valentino show is on Tuesday so I will share it with you on Wednesday. Have a good week.
