Where I work

I have been meaning to do a post about where I work for a while now. I work at House of Fraser a department store here in the UK and some exciting things have been happening in store for A/W10 and I want to share them with you. We have the launch of iconic brand Biba on 9th September. Michael Kors and Marc Cain have also arrived in store.

Photobucket Working here is fabulous as we stock some amazing brands including Mulberry and Chloe handbags. We also have the most amazing Cosmetic Hall stocking every premium brand imaginable my favorite has to be MAC for make-up, Aveda for hair care and Creme de la Mer for skincare. Photobucket

On the International Designer Floor where I work we stock MaxMara, Hugo Boss, Stefenal, Michael Kors, Marc Cain, Joseph, Jaegar London and Vera Wang

The Contemporary Floor stocks some amazing High Street brands like Miss Selfridges, Whistles, Warehouse as well as diffusion lines like Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, D&G, Moschino, Paul & Joe Sister and Day Birger. Photobucket

Highy recommend Day Birgers candles and room fragrances. My favorite is Modern
So this is where I work you can imagine where my wages go every month. Of course we stock a lot more lines but these are a few of my favorites. We also have a skin clinic where you can have everything from hair lasering to botox and teeth whitening. So what is your favorite Department Store????

  20. I wish the House of frasers near me stocked brands like this the one in and around Leeds are just highstreet stores inside + and - a few others xx

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow, I would probably end up owing them money, even with employee's discount :P
    I don't really like Department Stores, but that's probably because in my hometown the two department stores are terribly stocked... and where I now live, the department stores are too generic, the one that does carry "luxury" items is way too expensive.
    So, I prefer hunting down small boutiques like a beagle hunts doves.

    PS. That vest you're wearing is amazing!

  23. I love this post. Seems like you have a more interesting job than me, I work in a shoe shop, however there definitely isn't as much eye candy as there is in your store...what I would do for one of those Mulberry Alexas.

    Thanks for your sweet comments.

  24. Wow! what an amazing place to work, you can look every day to the mulberry bags, how awesome is that!
    + I just stumbled on your blog but I really like it and I like your style to!

  25. Sigh, that department store makes my local favorite look so sad. Most the merchandise they have is for older people. They typically sell Marc by Marc Jacobs, a few Burberry bags, designer sunglasses and Juicy Couture. The shoes department is one of the most impressive but still I can find most of their selection in other stores in case they don't have my size.

  29. Looks like an amazing range to work with!
    That's the trouble with working in fashion retail, it would just about be easier to be paid in clothing rather than cash!

  61. I read about the Biba thing... Cool!

  62. hehe, i was going to ask if you got into trouble too! i never mention where i work because we got a strongly-worded email to keep our work out of social networking sites because of "our competitors". i would've thought that (well-meant) publicity would be good, no?
    anyway, i LOVE your store, and your work-buddy looks really fun&cool too!
