Yesterday we went to the very busy and trendy borough market, full of delicatessen produce from french cheeses to Spanish meats to exotic spices.
In the shadows of the glistening shard there lies tucked behind windy roads, cobbled streets and tall brick warehouses an enchanted courtyard filled with Mary Poppins Magic and vivid color. I had read about this, but had never seen it myself, a quaint little square decorated with a canape of multicolored umbrellas. Had we not known where to go we would never have found it, this really is secret London at its best. The exact address of the Umbrella Street is just off Park Street in the yard.
I wore my new CameoCa Bow Skirt which came from Fashion Bunker in Australia. I made this the feature piece of my outfit and combined it with tribal jewellery and an oriental patterned top. I thought that the black tie of the top went well with the black of the skirt. It wasn’t that hot so I wore an angular black blazer. This look is more formal and serious and so I slicked my hair back too and wore black heels to create a catwalk effect. Let me know what you think and also if you know of any cool hidden spots in London or in your home city which people should check out if they ever visit?
