Yesterday Mummy and I spent a lovely afternoon in Sophie’s Shop in Forest Row🌳, East Sussex. I love coming to visit Sophie 👩🏻and her shop🏠as it is always nice to catch up and is the perfect excuse to pick up a new wardrobe staple 👗(I’ve hardly taken off the Iro jeans I bought last time😊). We had some excellent lunch 🍝 from Maria’s next door, and then got immersed in all the wonderful clothes 👖👗and accessories 👠.
The shop is beautifully laid out, with super displays and there is exactly the right amount of items on display. Sophie buys and sells vintage and nearly new designer clothes 👚👠👗, and she has a really good eye – there is always a superb selection.
I love this kind of shopping experience, as you are presented with beautifully arranged clothes, in a welcoming environment, and it is the chance to buy some designer 👠 items I would never normally consider (only look longingly at in magazines📚😍).
She has all sorts from Burberry trench coats 👘to Diane Von Furstenberg, Amanda Wakeley and Caroline Charles dresses 👗to Isabel Marant 👚tops. There are also a number of high street items – Whistles, J Crew and Hobbs are all there too. Accessories range from Russell & Bromley shoes 👢and Radley handbags 👝to Chanel pumps👟My littlest sister came away with the most fantastic Alexander McQueen heels👠She also has a super selection of jeans👖 – MiH, J Brand, James Jeans and Paige are all there (hopefully in you size 😀).
And Sophie always has very good outfit and style recommendations💁. She has a keen eye for items that will suit your style and shape. She always chooses things I would never normally even look at, and once on I can’t believe I ever survived without (I came away with an amazing blue Nicole Fahri top👕).
The best thing is, the stock is changing all the time, so you never know what you might discover.
We had a lovely time trying things on 💃 and I can’t wait to go back again soon – it’s the perfect place to pick up a new staple item 👖to refresh your current wardrobe 👘or you might be lucky and find that dress 👗to wear to that summer wedding.
She also recommended Abi Gurney Hat Hire 👒I found that dress 👗 for that wedding and now need a hat👒! And this is such a good idea – hire a hat rather than buy it.
Thank you so much for having us Sophie!
