The Custard Factory in Birmingham has always been one of my favourite places to hang around, especially when they have flea markets and vintage fairs on. It's a stones throw away from the Bullring shopping centre and it's a shame that since the regeneration of the area, they still have a problem with people venturing out to visit so I've seen shops come and go. One thing that doesn't change is that it is a hub of creativity with awesome graffiti (not surprising as specialised graffiti supplies store, The Bench 504 have a shop there) and this happy orange octopus lives just under one of the railway arches. I've walked past this smiling octopus quite often but never thought to take a photo here so I'm glad that on this day, I was equipped with a camera and a friend who has become pretty good with a camera and doesn't mind me directing them! On another note - this Marc by Marc Jacobs was an awesome sale find from Net-a-porter (sadly sold out now but available here). I'd admired it at full price a couple of weeks ago with Michelle and it didn't take long for me to click purchase. I probably shouldn't have consulted my Whatsapp group (hi Shopaholics Anonymous) before I made the purchase as the answer is ALWAYS yes.

  10. I've only been to Birmingham once and it was a fleeting visit. I have a few friends from there though, it seems pretty underrated in terms of creative. Love the little worker men! Be nice to see some more of Birmingham when you have time.

  14. This skort is THE CUTEST! Especially with the cute ankle straps. Custard Factory really annoys me as there isn't anything that really attracts me there but it's such a cool space!
