Giraffe at London Zoo :D
We had the most amazing adventure in London which was only a short break but super to get away from it all and spend a lot of time together. We took in museums, the zoo, shops, met a friend, and ate out every night which was such a treat. I had a fantastic time and didn't want to come back!
I bought a few lovely pieces from the shops the Big City has to offer. I especially loved Cos in Covent Garden, Cos is a sister brand of H&M but much more fashion-forward and contemporary. I also loved the All Saints Spitalfields store which was huuuuuge and had some amazing things in.
We went to Brick Lane and Notting Hill as well and spent ages digging through vintage clothes shops and record stores which was the most brilliant experience, I'd never been to Brick Lane before and now I can understand why everyone raves about it. I found a whole bundle of Chanel handbags in a cabinet in the back of one shop, and there was one in particular I fell in love with, priced at £85, but they couldn't confirm its authenticity, and I wasn't sure if I wanted to risk £85 on a fake! It was beautiful though. I also found a pair of French Sole ballet pumps for £20 and a pair of Gucci heels for £25 in a vintage shop in Notting hill-both size 6. Thats the downside of vintage shops I guess...no guarentees that nice stuff will be your size!! The boy did find an ace pair of deck shoes though, complete with embossed anchor-very cool.
I wasn't sure whether vintage shops felt a bit less fun than charity shops-no unearthing of gems, because I wanted everything. And where I'd pay £3 for a pair of shoes or cut off jeans in a charity shop, in the vintage stores they were all around the £15-£30 mark, which is ok for a genuine designer item, but for regular pre-loved clothing is kind of a lot, I think.
Sorry for the slack blogging-obviously I have been away and didn't take my computer! But I am back now to commence normal service, or as close to it as I can get!
