Major obsession alert Miu Miu white ballerinas……..

I don’t think any shoe has caught my eye as much as these in quite a few months (yes really). They are just perfect for summer with just about anything in my wardrobe (REALLY)

The only problem is they are on the Miu Miu website with no price and no way to buy but hey the search is now on for them everywhere. I won’t stop until I find them!

Tales from a personal shopping life 6/4/16…….crazy days & ice creams

Good morning everyone and wow what a  crazy few days in the personal shopping suite (House of Fraser Manchester). The diary is full everyday so it is either three or four appointments!! I have to rotate my shoes very carefully as there is a lot of walking involved. (and I still need to wear the pretty shoes)

Monday brought me a lady celebrating her 10th wedding anniversary with a weekend trip to Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons Raymond Blanc’s restaurant/hotel  in Oxford. She just wanted a couple of dresses to smarten up her wardrobe.

Her wardrobe consisted of doctor martins and jeans and she wanted smarter but not too “grown up” As well as a new clothes she also bought three pars of shoes, now thats what I call shopping!!
