Hello again and it’s another blissful day off! Spring must be in the air as I am having a clear out, all of the clutter is going going gone!
The sun is shining and I know I should be outside but if I don’t complete some tasks, no matter how small, I will feel like it has been a wasted day.
Monday started with a delicious surprise, after a home dye attempt that left my eyes really itchy (not really sure how this happened!!) I trotted off to Waitrose very early to find antihistamine tablets. Unfortunately I had to walk past the bakery section and spotted a lemon yumyum and ohhh was it delicious!! How have I lived my life without them so far?
This is now my mantra “I must not eat lemon yumyums” repeat!
It has been an awesome start to the week and I do feel blessed that I have such a cool job In House of Fraser with such wonderful clients.
Monday was relatively quiet but I had a mother of the bride, it is always a pleasure to find the perfect outfit for a very stressed mum!
This dress and jacket combination by Phase Eight is a favourite this season
Tuesday was quite a wonderful day I had two ladies who are both regulars so there was a lot of catching up to do and gossip to be shared.
My first lady wanted some new smart casual pieces for when in her words she goes to “golden oldie” events. She went away very happy with new jeans, jackets and tops all things that will mix well with what she already has.
My second lady wanted new workwear, she travels constantly to America and Australia so light weight shift dresses and jackets were the order of the day. The “piece” was this Max Mara Agito skirt and Calamo Jacket with flower detail, it is a beautiful suit and lightweight for warmer climes. I am sure it will shine in Atlanta next week.
Tuesday also brought a request from the Leeds HOF store to train their new personal shopper, it is always a pleasure to do this especially if they are as enthusiastic as I am about clothes and styling.
The lovely sunshine has turned my thoughts to spring and the new collections! I am always on the look out for cool shoes and I love these platforms from & Other Stories. I can already picture them with my frayed jeans and dresses, I feel an obsession coming on!!
I am thinking that they would go nicely with this navy skirt from Topshop, obviously I have no other skirts in my wardrobe!!!
I keep looking at backpacks especially one’s coloured blue or orange then I remembered I have a gorgeous blue one that was made especially for me in Peru. It will be out to play tomorrow!
As you will be aware Fashion Week has moved to Milan and it means that it will soon be time for Prada, which is always one of my favourites. The colours are always amazing and the combinations unexpected.
The Gucci show was earlier today although in true fashion style it did start an hour late. There are so many beautiful looks from this show it was hard to choose my favourite look, I chose this one simply because the colours are gorgeous and I would wear that coat.
I have posted all of my favourite looks from the show in a different post.
Back to work tomorrow and more lovely clients to style, now that is something to look forward to………
