From Catwalk to Kate

From Catwalk to Kate

Tuesday, 29 May 2012


As per I am posting a ridiculously late post, I've been away and my internet has been moved to my new house ( I disovered personal hotspot on my iPhone which is how i'm writing this, wow)  I'm sorry x1000 though. I had no time to do a London post (outfit is at the bottom of page) which must be done before Cannes so this is what I am doing now :) We got the train at 5.15 am or something ridiculous like that, it killed me getting up! By half 8 we were at kingscross.. soo this is my first time in London and the first thing we did was get the tube to Portobello Road, and visit the market.

There was a lot of silver ware i'm not so much interested in.. a lot of expensive fur and some cute leather bags!  The best part was finding a vintage shop on Portobello Road called Retro Woman I think, which I nabbed some Clemency nude leather shorts from, (you will see these soon ;) for just £25! It had an amazing selection of desinger shoes but random sizes!

vintage suitcases!
The colourful houses on Portobello Road.. too cute

 cute graffiti art..
this hotel looked like it was from another world..

We headed to Oxford circus after that, all the main shops, Topshop, Cos, then down Bond st. & Regent st. Burberry etc ( my love for this Spring/Summer artisan Trenches grew, and bags!) After that we got the tube to the river and walked a long to the Palace! Then back to Oxford, and Knigstbridge and visited Selfridges Harrods, (harrods esculators, wow - but my favourite bit HAD to be the food hall <3) we got loads done, I'd love to go back and visit Covet Garden and Dover St next time.

Even though it was early may, and it should be a few degrees warmer down south, the weather was.. cold. I layered a lot because I had no idea what it would be like, oh yeah, i got my hair fixed too, dip dye now!

My full outfit:
Shoes: bloch at tkmaxx
Tights: house of holland at tkmaxx
Skirt: Topshop Sale
Peter pan shirt: French connection (uniform)
Blue Blazer: H&M
Sleeveless Jacket: Romwe
Bag: Mulberry

I love this shirt, its so easy to put with everything in my wardrobe, jeans, skirts, pants! Also this is a new jacket I seen on Romwe which I waited so long for ^.^ its half black and half white which I find so cool haha, its easy to throw over things when you need to bring an outfit together, people often think the sleeves are part of it, i usually wear it over this, a shirt or the grey sweatshirt it my last post works really well!

Ill get working on uploading all my pictures from Cannes, don't forget to leave all your blogs on the comments I love looking through them!
