House of Fraser and Coast

I told you recently how much I love my email since becoming
a blogger…well here is something else I love…traveling around the world as I
sit at my kitchen table in South Texas. 
Through blogs I can experience England, France, Spain, Australia, or
Canada… and go places I might not otherwise be able to go.

 Today, I am traveling to England to visit the fabulous House of Fraser…a signature department store with 62 locations throughout the UK and
Ireland and a growing presence on the web. 
They have been around since 1849 and carry so much fabulous merchandise
it would be easy to spend all morning on their site.  

 But, for purposes of this trip…I am going to
spend some time with the Coast Collection
Coast offers ladies of a certain age chic affordable options with great fit, and I want to thank my readers for telling me about them! It is exciting to have so many of you from the UK reading this blog!

I found pieces in each division of the current Coast collection
which I found to be fabulous.   At House of Fraser online, Coast features dresses, knitwear, pants, blouses, outerwear, and
skirts.  So here is what I would purchase
in each area as I visit the UK, sip tea and shop!

  1. Oh my….the black dress, red top and gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous coat are making me drool!

    You look lovely and happy and your blue bag is so pretty.

  2. Oh wow ! 'House of Fraser' & your follower Carol also mentioned 'Wallis' takes me back 23 yrs. to when I was still living in the Uk. Two of my favourite stores. Being on the short side I could always find something in their petite range to fit in my style at those stores. Not quite the same here in France, they think all 'les femme ' are skinny or the price for 'les ensembles' is so expensive. However I've managed to seek out a mail order catalogue which I like & for that special occasion found a very smart LBD almost the same as the one you liked from Houes of Fraser. Love all the outfits you chose, our taste is very similar.Love your posts, keep it coming.

  3. Oh isn't it the funnest thing, to travel anywhere we want to now and not leave our homes? YOU LOOK FANTASTIC as you get ready, set, GO in your fabulous outfit, Pam! I must check this fashion house out for sure! Thank you so much for coming to visit today; did you notice the picture of the magnificent Helen Mirren? WOW what a knock out at her age…whatever it is!

  4. Oh, I love your picks for clothes…love them! I too love being able to 'travel' like that. Our middle daughter and family are living in Vienna right now and skyping has become so vital to us! 🙂

  5. Okay my darling friend I want that black dress! Thank you for joining in the fun at the Thursday Favorite Things hop. Happy Monday wishes xo P.S. sorry I'm so late visiting 🙂

  6. Definitely the dress and the bright red top!

    I, too, love the fact that blogging has given me a window into many places I may never have the opportunity to visit in person. It also allows us to see things through other's eyes and to consider different perspectives.

  7. I believe in being yourself.. Enhancing what you have.. I believe everyone of us is blessed with something great.. and being in fashion is just enhancing that something .. making it noticeable and presentable.. And that’s why I say.. Do not follow the fashion… LET THE FASHION FOLLOW YOU….
