I have a day filled with appointments with my favourite brands.
I have my customers, all so gorgeous yet so diverse in their tastes and needs and budgets, firmly in my mind.
I have my iPhone ready and charged to take lots of photos.
And I have some comfortable shoes to wear while I do so….
I’m off to the Shoe Expo on Monday to buy my Autumn/Winter range for 2019.
At the end of the day, I know I’ll be feeling elated and excited and exhausted.
I’ll then spend the next few weeks agonising over choices in styles and colours, staring at the walls at the back of the shop where I arrange all the photos and then it’s time to mull and cull. I always, but always, want more than I can afford!
But these days, I have six years’ experience under my heels and I’m also buying differently, ensuring I have gorgeous choices every month of the year, so I won’t have to cull quite so much. Yahhh.
I can’t wait to share some trends and thoughts with you next week about what will be coming for 2019!
