Today my lovely friend, Vicky, came to visit me and kindly agreed to let me take a photograph of her for Style Guile. I met Vicky the first day that I started work in Birmingham in 1995 and we had many, many great lunchtime shopping expeditions before she eventually moved to Newcastle about nine years ago. However, we still meet a couple of times a year in Leeds for a shopping/eating/chatting day out and I look forward to those days so much. Fortunately we have one coming up in May, so we are both very excited.
Vicky has the most incredible Wardrobe and is the Queen of Chic! She has a fabulous knack of mixing designer with high street and always looks totally polished and amazing. She is an accomplished sale shopper and has a great eye not only for a bargain but also fantastic pieces. She always has a very clear idea of what suits and what she is looking for and she doesn’t settle for second best – if it’s not exactly what she is after, it stays on the shelf.
The beautiful bag that Vicky had with her today was from Patrick Cox but she also told me about a new site she has discovered from which she recently bought an orange leather bag for £40. Last summer she bought a linen suit for work from Primark and swapped the buttons for some John Lewis ones and I can imagine that she looked stunning in it. Her shoe collection is pretty impressive too and today she told me about her new Michael Kors ballerinas and also some pretty Dune flats too.
Tomorrow I will be bringing you “Sunday Best” from the Wedding Show – I am very excited about going as I love weddings. As our eldest was at our wedding, 9 months old and with a virus so crying constantly, I would love to get married again – to my husband, naturally!
