day one – nicky and i set off for london with high hopes of ordering some fabulous clothes for autumn/winter ’12. nicky is not only a great friend, she is also one of our regular models and it also helps that she LOVES to shop…

IMG_1879first stop is SANDWICH and the lovely emma. we have been stocking sandwich since we opened in 2003! its one of our favourite brands and over the years has proven to be one of our customers favourites too!!
the collection is one of their best and we place an order for lots of chunky knits, dresses, jackets, coats and trousers in burnt oranges, sage greens, electric blues, winter red……and the obligatory black.
a great start to our buying trip.

next stop is a potential new brand that we have been alerted to by an old colleague, julie who has moved agencies and thinks it would be just right of us. the collection is gorgeous. we don’t place an order straight away….but we definitely have lots to think about. we can’t tell you the brand name just yet!!!

…and to round off a great day we head around the corner with julie to one of our favourite clubs.
a good night was had by all!

IMG_1917day two – first stop paulette at CREA CONCEPT. paulette and jade of wahl fashions have taken the brand on and have just relocated to the old rag trade centre behind oxford street.
some days we wish all our brands were here……we wouldn’t have to travel so far!
the collection is great and we pick up some lovely chunky knits and wraps.

last stop is barlby road where the lovely girls at inexcess fashion have been looking after us for years.
we do a super AMERICAN VINTAGE order with liz, say goodbye and head back to paddington.

two days spent finding great clothes for our great customers.

i love my job. xxx
