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.

Tuesday was a really crazy day but filled with very interesting people. Early morning brought a Professor who was off to a conference today (last minute!!)

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!!

She is coming back to visit me soon so can rebuild her wardrobe.

As always over the course of a few days something catches my eye and today is no exception, just look at these ballet pumps. Not only are they Miu Miu but they are pale blue as well!! Thats equals perfection in any equation!! You can even wear the ribbons on or off!!

Ever since I spotted the Isabel Marant Drew Boots in white I have had a bit of an obsession with the colour. They will look truly amazing with tanned legs!!
