This weekend I spent two days flitting between cafes, shops, events and other London shenanigans.Weekends like this make me realise what a great city I live in, I honestly do feel very lucky.
On Saturday I got to meet one of my favourite stylists, 'Mrs Jones' at 'Sort Yourself Out Love', a brilliant get together of creatives selling fashion and artwork, and helping tired Londoners sort themselves out with great clothes and make-overs. Spindle magazine, a Brighton based publication, were also there; I really like their style-they even interviewed Jesca Hoop, one of my total faves. Here is just a taster of Fee's emporium; you can see more on her blog here.
Lizzie Burns who also works with Mrs Jones. Below is some of the very cool artwork that was for sale; I didn't get the name of the artist though;my bad.
Later on I popped to My Sugarland where they are really getting in the festive spirit- you can fill out little wishlists to give to Santa, or even request a special offer styling session with celebrity stylist Zoe Lem worth £200, on offer at the moment for £35, which includes £25 off any purchase from the shop. I'd spend mine on these oversized headbands, or any of their Elizabeth Lau stock, or if I could fit into it, this extra Christmassy, green velvet vintage number.
Finally, on Sunday I headed to Bake-a-Boo for their 'Walking in a Vintage Wonderland' event. The shop looked magical, and the food was some of the best Christmas confectionary I've ever had. Not a mince pie in sight, all the recipes were original takes on traditional classics- so there were mince-pie cupcakes, amazing apple and cinnamon squares and christmas pudding chocolate cakes- you can see them better-in fact you can see everything better in this little video, including Laura's fabulous Love Miss Daisy vintage stock.
