I've always had a penchant for pretty stationery, I remember as a little girl being terribly excited about going up to Selfridges to buy a new pencil case and it's contents for the new school year. I always had to start in September with new stationery and colourful wrapping paper to cover my exercise books.
To this day I can spend hours in a department store stationery department, my favourites are Selfridges and Liberty's of London where the ranges are dreamy and pull heavily on my credit card strings.
The other day whilst shopping for a client in Westfield I came across the Mary Portas concession in the House Of Fraser that really caught my eye. I was in too much of a hurry to decide which ones to buy, would have taken hours the choice was so good. It's stayed with me though and I'm going to have to find an excuse to go back!
