Out and About...

27 June 2009

So yesterday, Hailey and I managed to avoid the rain in Birmingham and have a bit of a shop in London town. I didn't take many photos but I did manage to take this one which made us smile. A band was playing and lots of old couples were dancing away at Spitalfields market.
Pics of Hailey and I having lunch in the Garden Cafe on Newburgh Street. Hailey looks so cute!So what did I end up buying? I didn't go crazy, I left that to Hailey (maybe I can convince her to show you guys her new purchases?) I bought a necklace from Bexy Lady in Kingly Court and a Shu Uemura eyeliner from the revamped beauty hall at Liberty. I have to say that the beautiful Tudor building never gets boring...even after so many visits.
It looks great layered with a vintage chain I have already.Sweater (AA)
Tee (YourEyesLie) Skirt (Topshop) Shoes (Converse) Necklace (Miss Selfridge)
I also bought this cropped tee by YourEyesLie from the Laden Showroom. YourEyesLie have a great website and actually do some pretty cool tees and really great jewellery. Definitely worth a look!

I have to recommend that people visit Public Beware if you are ever around Brick Lane. I've never noticed it before and don't think it was open the last time I visited. The Japanese store reminded me a lot of the style of clothes in the shops I usually frequent in Hong Kong. No doubt because a lot of the stock is sourced from there, Korea and Japan. Prices are decent too and even better at the moment because they have their sale on (from what I could see, the entire store was 30% off) I had a lot of fun trying on various things but didn't find anything but it was my favourite shop of the day. Asos sell a teeny tiny selection but of course if you can go to the actual store, it's waaaay better.

  6. Thank you so much for the note. Oh, I love what you brought back from your trip. That's so great that you and your sis went off on an adventure in London to shop. I really envy you.

  8. Its so good to hear from you. Sounds like a wonderful trip. Love the stuff you brought back.

    Thanks so much for the note and reading. Really, I enjoy these character..although, I doubt anyone reads it much. I was reading these Hollyoaks spoilers where Justin & Warren are leaving the show. Zoe is leaving in Dec. It sounds as if "Warren" wants to be on Cornation street..he's dating someone from that show. Oh, the gossip there is so much better than on these American soaps.

    Thanks again.

  45. Love the Spitalfields shot! And looks like you had a great time. Nice haul... I especially like the necklaces. You're so right about Liberty... it's my fav department store, because it doesn't really resemble one. And thanks for the heads up on Public Beware... I'm in London again next week and will definitely check it out. I used to live in Hong Kong, so maybe that's a way to curb my homesickness ;-)
