Brick Lane

I am officially in love with Brick Lane, London. I went there for the first time on Thursday and although sceptical at first due to the rough areas around it...was in awe by the Vintage stores and quirky little places to eat!

Shortly after stepping onto Brick lane I was approached and asked to be interviewed for a new programme on Sky showbiz called 'Summer street style'...that definitely rose my spirits!:) I will post the link to the interview on here if it's put up, (I was told end of June).

Down Brick Lane I bought a pair of 80's style high waisted shorts £18.00 and a blue high waisted striped skirt £14.00 from the shop, Rokit, which also have an online store. (Click here for the Rokit online store). They actually have 2 stores down Brick Lane, one bigger than the other...and something Craig commented on was how good the music was being played in them! - The retro music created a really great atmosphere whilst shopping! (It was like this in all the Vintage stores down Brick Lane).

I next came across a shop called The Vintage Store from which I bought a pair of cute little shoes for £18.00!

Before leaving Brick Lane we went to Rough Trade records which Craig was very excited about! And we got these photos :D Craig also got Stornoway's new album who're definitely worth checking out!

From Brick Lane we took the metro to Kensington to have a look around the museums. Obviously in the V&A I went straight to the Fashion exhibit! The piece which most caught my interest was an Alexander McQueen dress from his S/S 2010 collection, his last ever collection.

We then went to the Natural History museum where the dinosaurs were the most interesting! (It also got Craig in the mood to watch Jurassic Park!)

We decided to be healthy and walk from Kensington, (where by the way the houses are exquisite, across Hyde Park to Oxford street. It was a very long walk!! But...worth it as we got to experience Hyde park which was lovely - like being in the countryside...right in the middle of London! I would definitely like to go back and spend a day relaxing in Hyde park - after a bit of shopping of course!

By the time we'd got to the top of Oxford street we were running out of time and so rushed straight to Urban outfitters where I got a bag £30.00 -

Then we went to Topshop, (starting with Topman), and I got a playsuit by Dahlia - £55.00
