Our week – from

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

One week on and we’ve been really busy. Although August is generally a time for Sales and gosh there are some bargains to be had, Autumn Collections are now in. This week however I have had two clients who wanted ‘Mother of the Bride’ outifts. I took them to Harrogate, first stop Julie Fitzmaurice who have a reputation for being a ‘scary’  smart shop.To be honest it went well, a good selection of silk or organza coats (knee length ) over pretty chiffon or silk dresses… made to measure, in most of the colours under the sun,  my clients went home really happy with EXACTLY what they wanted, a dress to fit a bigger bust, or a smaller waist or bigger hips, these are good news for a special occasion.  I think going with clients helps as I tell people to just take their time. My customer today said she thought she was the most indecisive person ever but lets be honest, choosing a Wedding Outfit when you are the Mother of the Bride is stressful –  I hope I made my ladies happy!  Its been such a good week for weather, bare legs, dresses and in my case leg make up from Boots No 7, honestly its brilliant and people ask if I am in tights my legs look so smooth!

In October I am doing a Charity Walk in Nepal, so its full on fitness training, ladies, I FEEL GREAT! Gym 3 nights a week and a couple of tough walks, must cut down on the glass of Chardonnay however!
