I’ve always been partial to a department store and it has to be said that one of my favourites is most definitely John Lewis. I can often be found roaming around their Bluewater store, browsing the women’s clothing and accessories with a certain man (Alex) dragging his heels behind me! Actually, If I’m totally honest, John Lewis is the one shop that Alex doesn’t mind spending time in. I have tactics you see… If he’s getting a little huffy puffy, I simply just move into the tech or sunglasses section of the store and all is forgotten. He’s a sucker for those things, you see.
The John Lewis women’s wear section is pretty much the ideal place to go if you are in a rush to pull together a whole outfit. I’m talking shoes, clothes, sunglasses, handbag, lingerie… The works. What’s not to love?! It is my go-to store for so many occasions, but mainly it’s the shoes… hmm, and the bags… um, okay and the sunglasses! I just love the ease of having it all in one place, and the staff are so lovely you usually don’t feel pressured into buying anything.
As well as roaming their stores, I can also be found spending time on the John Lewis website and have recently been eyeing up a few items, in the hope of nabbing something nice before I head to NYC next week. I know that a lot of people wait until they go away to do their shopping, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually found much to purchase on any of my trips abroad. Well, nothing that I’ve actually worn after buying. Oops!
