If you live in London, I need to start this little ditty with a miraculous discovery. In Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush, there exists a shopping heaven. This weekend I was meandering through Marks & Spencer, doing my regular shop as an ambassador for the brand. Full disclosure again – I do get a set amount of free product every month to wear and share. However, the M&S girls will tell you I usually spend whatever money I make on the collaboration right back in the store. It’s a bad habit really, but I really do love the brand. But, back to the shopping heaven. I was in store, with both arms holding piles of clothes, when an angel appeared out of nowhere and asked if she could take my items to a fitting room. She directed me to a spot I’d never seen before and told me to keep perusing the store and all my items would be there when I was ready. So, I kept going and filled the arms once again.
After about another fifteen minutes of making sure I had seen everything that was new in store, I headed towards the direction of these mysterious fitting rooms. Turns out it was the personal style suite. I didn’t even know M&S had such a thing and was instantly feeling like a very bad ambassador indeed! Of course this lady didn’t know I was an ambassador. She just thought I was a customer in need. I was offered cold water and led into a changing space that’s about nine times the size of a fitting room I’m used to. It had velvet curtains, an oversized cushioned stool and plenty of space to twirl in a dress I fell in love with. It’s the dress you see here, in fact. The moral of the story is this… jump online and check out the Marks & Spencer Fit Style Studio. It’s currently available in Manchester and White City and it’s totally free to book! I’m not getting paid to write this, I was genuinely impressed with the service and it wasn’t until I left that I told the lovely ladies that I actually worked with the brand and was dead impressed by what I had found.
I also, once again, managed to spend more money than I actually have on clothes for the new season which you will see rolled out in coming weeks. But this particular dress I had to wear right away! It’s a beauty isn’t it?! So much love here. I wanted to wear it out for something more casual than it’s actually intended for, so I dressed it down with flat sandals and a casual bag. But, it can be worn for just about anything. Get involved, ladies. This will sell out!
