Get the London Look – Vintage Shopping on Brick Lane




Adjacent to trendy Shoreditch, Brick Lane has become the Mecca of Vintage Fashion. London hipsters flock here in their droves. Used clothes, some designer others more like museum pieces can be used creatively to give your outfit a more retro look. Clothing is quirky, military jackets, jump suits, bowler hats and sequin dresses. This is the ultimate test for the fashion victim – to pick out and use these once discarded clothes and turn them into a vintage chic look.






This is the vintage jumper designed by Eleonora Scarmucci Milano that I bought. It has shoulder pads and I loved that it was ribbed. Here I have combined it with my killer heels from Aldo and hand-made Italian glasses from Trussardi for a chic stylish look.


For a more Revolutionary look

I am an ex-professional tennis player and have just graduated from King's College in London. I share daily fashion outfits and stories of my travels and the tour. Every story has a beginning, but I will start mine here, at the start of something big. For us this was a journey of a lifetime, where dreams were made and broken, where friendships were cherished and torn apart. We lived and still live the life of aspiration and we tell the tale of victories and defeats that come with growing up at such a young age on the brink of greatness and fame. In our world youth, beauty and riches combine. We trained hard but played even harder. Our parties’ were and always will be legendary, our travels exotic and carefree. We were becoming stars. My Girls On Tour showcases street style looks, avant-garde fashion, new designers, fashion shows as well as travel stories and adventures. A fun window into the glamorous world of a professional tennis player turned fashionista, this is the place for wonderlust and fashion inspiration. Instragram @abigirlx Twitter @Abigailroyston

    1. Thank you so much 🙂 I am so glad you like the blog! I really loved your post about your trip to Europe! I sounded like you had such an amazing time! Love your platform 9 3/4 pic 😉 I was wondering if you went with a tour group like Contiki as you mentioned that you went with 22 other people you didn’t know? I was thinking of going with them to South East Asia because a friend of mine said she had gone with young people she didn’t know and that it was amazing because she made so many nice new friends 🙂 Again thank you for your lovely message Abi xxx

      1. Hey Abi!

        I actually went through Education First College Break (EFCB)

        It was a really amazing trip, I’d never been out of the country but I felt so comfortable and they have so many options for trips. I highly suggest it! I miss London so much, I really hope I can go back there one day, I’d seriously love to live there! 🙂

        Again, your blog is so fabulous! I’m probably going to be on it all the time now because I’m trying to improve my blog as well!

        Cait 🙂
