London Shopping

I had a great time in London, thanks so much for your comments in my last post, they really made me smile. I didn't get the opportunity to take too many photographs of the places we visited but I have lots to show you of my purchases...

Top Shop pink tutu style dress

Rokit vintage striped dress


Rare at Top Shop navy & white dress 


Ilustrated People at Top Shop I ♡ U jersey top


Top Shop blue & pink suede bags


Laduree at Harrods macaroons

The hotel was beautiful and just across the road from the nightclub I mentioned - it was as pretentious if not more so than was suggested in their email to me confirming the guest-list, it was so up it's own bottom it wasn't even funny! 

Most of Saturday was spent in Oxford Street, a little bit predictable I know, but the opportunity of hours to spend in the haven that is Top Shop is not to be missed. We have no where near the amount of choice in our Top Shop store as they do in this one.

On Sunday we visited Brick Lane... not as nice a market as Portobello but I'm glad I experienced it and the vintage shops around there were really great. The weather ended up making the weekend, it was lovely just browsing around new areas and eating lovely food.

  1. Glad you had a nice time in London! Love the first dress! I was looking at it online just yesterday and wondering about the lenght...it's a lot above the knee? Cause I'm a bit obsessed with dresses lenght and I usually get only the ones that provide a nice knee coverage...!

  2. thank you! it is quite short, mid-thigh i would say. i'm only 5'5 and it definitely doesn't cover my knees, black tights will be in order for me. it is nice though.

  5. Glad you had a great time in London. I wonder if those macacrons are just as nice as the ones from Paris?

    Looks like you were very busy spending money...Brick lane is so fab for vintage but can be a little pricey!

  6. yes, the macaroons are equally as nice! i once bought a huge box from the champs elysees shop & ate every single one myself!
    i love going into vintage shops but you are right, so expensive. i don't even bother to look at the vintage range in top shop, it is ridiculous.
    when you know what price you can get them for on ebay or etsy even, it is not worth paying their prices. the dress i got from rokit was £20, which i didn't think was too bad, as i usually pay to have them shortened anyway
