On Monday I spent the day with lucky Rachel Venn, Age 18 from Devon who won Freya’s fabulous prize, as seen in GLAMOUR magazine’s January Issue. Rachel had entered Freya’s competition on the website, where the 2 minutes she took to enter the competition paid off big time when it won her flights to and from Manchester, an amazing stay at a very swanky suite at The Hilton in Manchester, where she was taxi’d to The Trafford Centre Shopping Mall (wearing her new Freya underwear set – also part of the prize) with £500 spends burning a hole in a pocket! Phew. Talk about every woman’s dream prize! More
Well helloooo there, Fitting Talk readers! I hope you are keeping away the Winter blues as we are nearing the end of January…roll on Spring, I say!
I am really excited about Freya’s celebration of one of my favourite ever bras, the delicious, delectable and dependable Deco. Deco is my favourite Freya bra because it is reliable, supportive and so well shaped. I wear mine under t-shirts, sheer lined tops and yoga gear, and count it as my g0-to for daily comfort and support.
Recently I helped to organise the launch of a new luxury designer boutique in Alderley Edge called Rocca where it was my job to secure the VIP guest list for the evening and ensure that Rocca entered Alderley with a bang, as the owner was new to the area and wanted someone who knew fashion, and had contacts in the local community.
I was chuffed to be asked to be involved in the launch of this beautiful new shop which stocks Victoria Beckham handbags, Charlotte Olympia shoes (my favourite at the moment!), Jonathon Saunders, Osman and Emilio de la Morena who even designed a special dress in homage to the owner of the store which one of my friends snapped up quicker than you could say ‘limited edition’.

You wouldn’t believe how many times I hear the words “I have nothing to wear!” every week! Women at the end of their tether who are sick of uttering these five little words (or sometimes their husbands or boyfs who have heard these words one too many times end up calling on their behalf!)
So this week, dedicated to all those women who are stood in front of their wardrobes, huffing and puffing, surrounded by a pile of clothes on the floor, close to tears because from their three bulging wardrobes, they can’t find one outfit they want to wear, I’ve published my first book, cunningly entitled ‘Nothing to Wear!’
I have to say, writing this book has been somewhat trying. I love to write and blog, but compiling every experience I’ve ever had with a client in to a ‘how to’ manual for women who want to achieve a wardrobe they love, has not been easy.
I just had to say I had some serious bike and dress envy when I saw the delicious Miss Kelly Brook in this amazing red number. The dress is by the Pretty Dress Company, and has been added to My Style Pinterest board as soon as I saw it. It’s £95 and pretty perfect for the curvy girl I think, certainly a showstopper!
