10 things you need from Ganni for your spring/summer wardrobe.

Ganni has passed in and out of my wardrobe fora few years but I am having a major love affair with them at the moment.

The styling is cool and price point is perfect.

I love to wear little dresses and ankle boots and this this little number is right at the top pf my list. It would look so good with Isabel Marant white cracked leather ankle boots. (I don’t have them yet but who knows what can happen!!)

Ganni Palmer Dress £140 here

Teamed with the perfect ankle boots

Isabel Marant Danay Boots £485 here

These next pieces work so well together but both are versatile in their own right. The jumper would easily become a wardrobe favourite and would replace my sweatshirt phase! Oh and the boots would work so well!

Ganni Muller Rollneck £330  here

Ganni Roseberg Printed Skirt £120 here

I do the next dress, it’s navy blue and the length and shape I love. I would definitely style this one with the boots. (fashion maths cost per wear etc)

Ganni Marceau Georgette Mini Dress £140 here

I do love a great white tee but they are never easy to find but this one looks just perfect. I would wear loads with one of many pairs of side striped pants .

Ganni Harway Tee Global Citizen £60 here

Ganni Dubois Track pants £130 here

I am not sure if it’s the colour or the dress or both! I love a midi dress and I do love sports luxe so this dress is spot on,  I could wear either my platform sneakers or the Isabel boots depending on the mood.

Ganni Dubois Woven Midi Dress £190 here

I do love a pale blue top for summer and this little blouse is so pretty, it would work so well the frilled skirt above and the jeans below. (Oh and those Isabel boots again)

Ganni Charron Striped Seersucker Top £120 here

Ganni Compton Denim Jeans £130 here

I cannot leave without adding a pair of Ganni’s super cute sneakers, they would also work so well with everything. This pair are are exclusive to Mytheresa.com

My weekly dreaming update, it maybe cold outside but……

This week has very dreary weather wise but my dreams have been full of sunshine (Think the tan helps) I just want to wear all of the new season clothes now.

My Saturday outfit (for personal shopping) certainly made me feel very summery and it felt amazing. I do love a Whistles dress but the shoes are heaven!

There have been quite a few things that have caught my eye during the week (as always) but this top by Michael Kors is my favourite. I did try it yesterday and I am a little bit obsessed by it, it just hangs perfectly.

Micheal Kors Ruffled Polka Dot Georgette Top £135 here

This is the only image I can find and I would team it with jeans.

Still looking forward to warmer days these trousers by Whistles are just perfect for sunny days with a white tee and are definitely on wish list.

Sticking with Whistles this top from the Limited Edition is just gorgeous.

Whistles Celeste Sport Trim Blouse £159 here



I appear to be having a week of finding gorgeous new tops and this one by Zara for me is near perfect. The colour for me is absolutely perfect I just need to try it. I would team with navy wide leg trousers and the perfect pair are below.

Zara contrasting top stitching shirt £39.99 here

Max Mara Darling Wide Leg Culottes £205 here

These culottes are in store (house of Fraser and I can confirm that the fabric and the fit are just perfect.

If I didn’t already have quite a few pairs of sneakers then this pair from Zara would definitely be on my wish list. Just imagine how good they would look with the blue shirt and culottes above (heaven)

Zara platform sneakers £39.99 here

I am always on the look out for jeans as I struggle to find both the style and fit I want. Luckily Zara have just emailed to say these skinny flares are available, now team these with the Michael Kors polka top I featured above. (cosmos, stars aligning, whatever I know its a sign)

Zara skinny flares £29.99 here

Well I do believe that have shared enough of my dreams who knows how much will be a reality!!





Dresses! my pick of the new season day dresses…..

It all started yesterday I tried a Whistles dress that was too big for me but I knew the potential was huge. I did eventually find my size on line and I cannot wait to try it (the shoe possibilities are interesting).

This however piqued my interest and I decided that my work wardrobe needs a refresh and I love wearing dresses that I can team with ankle boots, sneakers or pretty shoes.

The dress that started the search

Whistles Scarf Print Dress was £169 now £80 here

This dress is much longer on me and I would style it differently! I am thinking my yellow Gucci loafers will look very cool.

My go to brands for dresses is always Whistles or Isabel Marant and this one is perfect.

Isabel Marant Etoile Vicky lace trimmed cotton dress £395 here

This dress by M.i.h is beautiful and I think that a tan is required but it is simply gorgeous.

M.i.h Jeans Kirby Dress £375 here

I actually sold this one yesterday to a personal shopping client and it looked beautiful.

Whistles Cynthia tie waist dress £139 here

A midi dress is always a good option for me and this one from Other Stories comes in two great colours.

Other Stories Heart Print Midi Dress £69 here








When it comes to dresses the french brands always seem to get it right and this one by Sandro is beautiful.

Sandro Silk Dress £207 here

I do love MO&CO and this dress doesn’t disappoint.

MO&CO floral silk georgette dress was £210 now £63 here

I will finish with a dress that I have just fallen for and it comes in three different colour ways.

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
