Home in time for tea
[[ shoes from Urban Outfitters, dress from Topshop, jewellery from Portobello and Les Jumelles ]]
This time we were near Lincoln's Inn and Chancery Lane, which is all rather quaint.. and a bit strange too. I love hidden London, the bits behind the main shopping streets, where it is quite, quite empty, but there is so much history. In fact, I am reading a book (Underground London: Travels Beneath the City Streets) which is very interesting. I am fascinated with disused underground stations and the like. There are all sorts of hidden secrets, shut off tunnels, old stations and bunkers where people slept during the Blitz.
Oxford Street was quite fun, there were fair ground rides, singing, dancing and we did not too badly on the Christmas shopping front. But I still have the hardest people to finish shopping for- my mother and my boyfriend. I usually find lots for my boyfriend, but we're more lacking in pennies this year. My mother is terribly difficult- she likes some jewellery, but nothing too tacky, too heavy, too colourful, but yet still slightly different or interesting, and clothing-wise it's impossible (also she has expensive taste)! So far I have some earrings from Hampstead Bazaar and a teeny tiny distressed chest of drawers, and some little bits and bobs for her stocking (yes we do stockings still).
And then home for some sweets and some tea (of course)
(I'm growing out my fringe)
Starting to feel a little Christmassy! I now own an advent calendar :)
