These last few weekends I keep ending up at Brick Lane…It’s not that we don’t try to go somewhere else, but every time my friends and I try to organise something a bit different we can’t help but remember how good the shops and the food were and how fun our day was… so we just end up going back! Simple… I mean if it’s a good time, why not repeat it, right?
From the amazing food market on the Sunday, to the vintage shops and famous cereal bar, this street filled with art and music is definitely any hipster’s paradise and the best place to hang out over the weekend, which is why last Saturday, I went there with an incredibly talented designer and fellow fashion blogger, Georgina, the founder of www.georginahart.co.uk whom I met outside the Pam Hogg show at London Fashion Week.
It was quite grey but we took some fun pictures in front of this new graffiti of pink and red tea pots, right next to the place where we then went and had afternoon tea in a RED TEA POT! I know right! Coincidence? I don’t think so! 😉 We had a great time looking at all the amazing things for sale in the little shops and Georgina found the most amazing boutique that sold really beautiful things at great prices. I can’t quite remember the name of it but I will ask Georgina and then add it [here]… The window was filled with sequin hoodies and the small boutique was packed with shoppers snapping up the remaining pieces, all of which would make great eye catching street style looks. I must admit I got the most insane outfit envy when Georgina picked out the most amazing pair of of jean flared dungarees and black tie crop top with stars, because it not only looked great but it was super creative too! I hope we can shoot it next time we meet up, but in the mean time here are some of the pictures that we took during our afternoon together 🙂 I hope you like them!
I decided to wear an oversized jacket with shoulder pads to keep me warm with a rusty gold top to give the look a more Autumnal feel. The leather trousers have great detail on the knees that mean that they can look good dressed up but also worn in a more relaxed style. I decided to wear light green textured sneakers to give the look a more edgy feel and also because they would be a lot more comfortable walking round.
What do you like to do at the weekend? Do you have a favourite place to go with your friends or family?
Happy Weekend Everybody! 🙂 Abi xxx
