Suzie: Hi, I’m Suzie Verrico and I’m here for wedding breakfast. There’s only one place to go for fashion in Buckinghamshire and that’s Lisa La Moda in Gerrards Cross. Why don’t we go in and meet the lady herself?
Lisa: Hello darling, good morning.
Suzie: How are you? I’m happy to see you.
Lisa: And you too.
Lisa: Come and sit down. Let me offer you a glass of champagne.
Suzie: I don’t mind if I do.
Lisa: A nice way to start a day isn’t it?
Suzie: Lisa, what a beautiful, beautiful shop. It’s so stylish, so sheik, absolutely stunning. So do tell me about it.
Lisa: Well, I’ve been in Gerrards Cross now for about four years. And about three months ago, I moved to larger premises just down the road. We’re doing really well. It’s fantastic. We offer fabulous day wear or a straight through to occasion wear and evening wear.
Suzie: I have to ask this, do you have some celebrity clientele?
Lisa: Oh. I do have some. Yes, one or two. And celebrity’s wives do come along to us too. I couldn’t possibly say it.
Suzie: Oh you can’t spill the beans.
Lisa: I can’t. I’m sorry.
Suzie: Nevermind. You just have to believe me. I specifically came to see you today because I have an invite for a wedding and I want something very, very special, but obviously, I don’t want to upstage the bride.
Suzie: I thought I’d come to you and you can give me some fabulous advice and show me some of your beautiful outfits. I really can’t wait to have a look.
Lisa: Neither can I. Let me show you the way.
Suzie: Thank you.
Lisa: Okay darling. What I’m going to show you first is this. This is from Versace, 100% silk, which I think on you would be absolutely beautiful with your brown eyes and brown beauty.
Suzie: What would I wear with this? Would I go for gold?
Lisa: You could go for gold, you could go for silver, you could go for patent. Being the one color and being as this is your key color, I think there are a few directions you could go with that. But yeah, silver or gold would be lovely.
Suzie: Or even the nude.
Lisa: Nude would be especially lovely.
Suzie: Show me some more.
Lisa: Okay. We’re on a row. This would be amazing. I mean, this is from Catwalk. And these are one-sized believe it or not so they go from sort of an 8 up to a 14. And for somebody who doesn’t want to show the arm, this works beautifully.
Suzie: I’ve gone to heaven.
Lisa: Yeah. And again, it’s a great color for you.
Suzie: It’s so feminine. It’s so beautiful.
Lisa: Below the knee, very flashing and this sort of pan the styled skirt.
Suzie: Would you like to wrap that for me?
Lisa: Yes, wrapped.
Suzie: Show me more, I need to see more.
Lisa: Okay. Well, I think you’re going to love this one. It’s really show stopping. Very romantic with the very beautiful chiffon roses. Lots of tulle and net underneath it and of course this is for…
Suzie: Fairy tale.
Lisa: A very glamorous wedding. A lot of people are wearing long now for the wedding.
Suzie: I have choose changing.
Lisa: Very much though. It has always been a big event but it’s getting even…
Suzie: This is so glamorous. I mean, this is Hollywood glamour.
Lisa: It certainly. And the soft draping across the bosom that’s really great. If you got a very full bosom, it kind of just softens it a little bit.
Suzie: I think this is a fabulous outfit.
Lisa: This is from Catwalk once again. Beautiful Shorofsky Crystal. And of course, details. Like that, if you got a little bit broad across the beam which is my little J Lo tush, fabulous. But to either emphasize it or to minimize it depending how month should go with it. And then of course, you’ve got your polo robe.
Suzie: Which is rather nice because once again, as you said, it can cover up the arms if you’re feeling a little conscious about your arms.
Lisa: Absolutely. I think we should try that too.
Suzie: I think so too.
Suzie: Alright. Show me more.
Lisa: Now, this is very exciting. This is lovely to the traditional wedding dress, but equally, it could be possibly worn to a wedding but perhaps in another color, not the white. Again by Catwalk, soft draping.
Suzie: This could be worn to a wedding as the wedding dress.
Lisa: Absolutely, yeah.
Suzie: Or I have got an invitation to attend a wedding from a certain BB housemate that happen to throw a wardrobe at me a couple of years ago. Could this be appropriate to wear?
Lisa: Absolutely. I think if you wanted to upstage the bride. You look amazing in that.
Suzie: But seriously, is it advisable to wear white to a wedding?
Lisa: It’s not advisable unless of course you want to upstage the bride.
Suzie: Tell you what, I must try this on now. They look stunning.
Lisa: I’m looking forward to seeing you in them. Let’s go. Wow. Fantastic. You see, that hat is an amazing statement. That hat is from Ascot Hats in the bag shop.
Suzie: You said Catwalk again takes the best every time.
Lisa: Elegant. Nice laced sleeve here, delicate finishing on the cuff. And although it’s cream, you can accessorize with black.
Suzie: This is the one and it’s just amazing.
Lisa: Catwalk again of course.
Suzie: Absolutely gorgeous. I could wear to the wedding, I could wear this to ladies’ day, I could go to a ball, a prom. In fact, I could wear this anywhere darling.
