Ancient Greek Sandals|Moda Operandi|Where can I get sandals now|Summer Sandals|

As always Lima is never far away from my thoughts so when I spotted these sandals a few minutes ago I was excited. I think they would work so well with little shorts and they are in my size, what more could I want.

Vogues Fashion Night Out Manchester|House of Fraser|Flannels Fashion|Selfridges|Harvey Nichols|

Last night I was lucky enough to be in Manchester for Vogues Fashion Night Out. I have to say a big thank you to House of Fraser (for more details on House of Fraser check here ) for letting me wander around the store early so that  I could take some shots of the store all ready and waiting. There was a lot of champagne dotted around the store along with goody bags and opportunities to win mystery prizes. I was particularly impressed with the Chanel goody bag, they were decorated with black sparkly Camellia’s, just beautiful

I dont think anyone could fail to be impressed by the Radley dogs, how cute, a great pity they weren’t in a goody bag. I think you will agree the store looked pretty cool.

At 7pm it was off to Toms Champagne Bar for a glass or two to get the party started.

Then it was a walk down The Avenue to Flannels where Matthew Williamson was in attendance. The shop was full, the cocktails colourful and the macaroons were delicious.

A quick walk across town to Selfridges and Harvey Nichols followed, both were extremely busy with happy shoppers.

A good night was had by all.

Over the Knee Boots|Kurt Geiger|Can you wear over the knee boots|

I have long lived under the impression that at 5ft 2in I am way too short for over the knee boots but I love to look anyway. Today I tried a pair in Kurt Geiger and I was amazed, that they looked great. I have been obsessing about not wearing tights when the cold weather sets in, instead I would wear the over the knee boots with little dresses and I am so pleased that it is going to work.

If you are petite too go out and try some I think you will be surprised.

Dress for Success|Vogues Fashion Night Out Manchester|Clothes Donations|

I do not think that you come across many inspirational people or organisations in your life time, but today I did have the privilege of meeting with Dress for Success in Manchester. They are certainly inspiring and have a team of very motivated people.

The organisation was established in 1997 and operates in 90 cities across America and Europe. Their aim is to get young women on low incomes interview ready, they will help sort the outfit along with styling advise and help with interview techniques. They operate on donations of clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery from this they decide what goes to the clients and what is to be sold. Any money raised from sales go towards paying the rent and other overheads.

The Manchester branch opened it’s doors in May and already has an impressive list of people who are now back to work but it is an ongoing battle to keep the rails full of appropriate clothing.

On thursday we have Vogue’s Fashion Night Out in Manchester and Dress for Success are taking part, there will be drop off points for clothes in Oasis, Long Tall Sally, SimplyBe & LK Bennet. Both Jaeger and Ted Baker will be donating items to the charity and Selfridges will operating a drop off point for shoes & bags only.

What more of an opportunity do you need, make room in your wardrobe for all of those news purchases by donating clothes that will be very much appreciated.
