Splash of Rouge


   Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of blogging recently!!! I thought this summer I'd be blogging full time in my weeks free from studying . . . But alas, instead I got a full time job which takes up so much time, I don't even get much time to shop anymore!!!! Anyway on my days off (like today) I love to wear A LOT of colour, as my uniform is now purely black! SO here is toady's look - sorry about the shabby photo quality - was taken on my phone's amature camera rather than my Nikon.
Sunglasses - Vintage
Red Vest - Topshop
Navy Skirt ( with bird print) - New Look
Purple Suede Heels - Office
   But keep tuned in, as soon I shall be posting an EXCLUSIVE interview with fashion designer Meera Sharma, my trip to Pure London 2012 (including images from the catwalk shows and interview with Zandra Rhodes) and a trip to a Ted Baked SS13 event too!!

My Shop Sells Pippa Middleton's New Gold Clutch!!!

   So, in a mere 2/3weeks I have been interviewed, trained and received the full time position of the DKNY sales adviser job at House of Fraser. This has all been a bit of a whirlwind trip so far and I am still a new-be learning about all the stock in the handbag department. So you can imagine my surprise when I was reading my Metro on Wednesday to find a photograph of Pippa Middleton carrying one of the Wilbur & Gussie AW12 clutches I had only just put on display in House of Fraser a few days before! She wore the gold glitter envelope clutch with a red silk Temperley London dress (which sparked a lot of conversation with its plunging neckline) to the Boodles Boxing Charity Ball in Westminster this week. She is definitely on key with next season's trends - with both the strong reds and high shine materials, which will be prominent next season.
   Personally I think she looks beautiful (no matter what a certain cheeky - yet very talented - Chanel designer commented this week). If you would like a piece of the Middleton style you can now buy the clutches from House of Faser with the gold one above currently available in selected stores (one being Guildford). So if you want to purchase your very own (with a fantastic 10% off this month when opening a store card) or if you just want to admire its beauty and try it for size, just head to your nearest store that stocks it!
