London calling, last one I promise ;)

If you say London (or the UK for that matter) I think of: Vivien Of Holloway, Collectif, What Katie Did and Freddies of Pinewood. Look it up, it changed my life ;)
I bought something of all of the above! Yes no pictures of WKD, but seriously! Did you really think I was going to post a picture like that?

The last picture is of a great shop in the Camden stables market.
Black Rose. And I didn't buy a dress there! But I did buy some lovely Freddies of Pinewood jeans. Whoopie!
Tomorrow I'll be in an iron bird ;)

London calling, a bit of vintage.

I've been to London a few times before. So last year I found some lovely things at Beyond Retro. Including a swim cap with flowers. This year however, nada!
But no fear. Brick Lane has enough other shops to offer with gorgeous and affordable vintage. Just throw yourself in the Sunday crowd and rummage!

This year I also went looking in the Lower Marsh. Prices are a bit steep for my taste. I did find one lovely shop with ok prices (but I would have loved them to be just a bit cheaper). It's What the butler wore. I went home with 2 summery dresses.

London calling, no I'm not an alcoholic! I'm just from Belgium ;)

Between the shopping and more shopping we had a second or two to eat and put our feet up. And have a drink. Or two. Or a pitcher...

London calling, Collectif clothing

Some more shopping happened... I've got sweaters from Collectif up the wazoo (pardon my french). However not so much dresses. I did buy a dress that day...again a secret for Dressember ;)
And then some mocha slurping!

London calling, shopping your arse off (can I say that on here?)

When you say London, you say shopping. Me? I say vintage shopping dahling.
First up? Vivien Of Holloway @ Holloway Road.

No I did not buy that dress. That's a secret untill Dressember ;)

London calling, the prequel

Once again shame on me. I went to London at the beginning of July. I fully intended to make a full blogpost of this weekend of shop till you drop. Did you see it? Neither did I. However since I'll be going across the GREAT pond tomorrow...I'll present a few short posts with pictures. And after that updates from...uhm...well you'll see ;)

The prequel...
We started our trip in our own city. Antwerp!
