Hello. The last week has flown by so quickly - it felt like I had ages before going back to school, but all of a sudden I only have a weekend left. Art is probably the only subject I feel I've done quite a lot of over the holiday, but I think that's a good thing as it's my first exam (just over a week to go, how exciting). I'm going away tomorrow for a two-day trip to Bournemouth to de-stress by the sea for a little before the real panic sets in.
Anyway, these pictures are from Saturday, when I went to Berwick Street to pick up some fabrics for Art. I used to spend ages there getting bits & pieces for Textiles, but since I finished my coursework I haven't had the need to go down there for ages, so it was nice to be back.
I wore a shirt from Beyond Retro, skirt from a vintage fair in Oxford, scarf from Blitz, tights from H&M, socks from Topshop and shoes from Brighton. I bought the jacket last January from the East End Thrift store, so it cost me about £1 on it's own. I haven't really worn it much, though (apart from a really early blog post) but have rediscovered it since my entire wardrobe seems to be orange/brown/yellow at the moment. It was nice not having to wear a big coat to go out - a sure sign that maybe Spring is on it's way after all.
I adore Berwick Street - it's just off of Oxford Street, and is a lovely break from the busy mass of people that is central London. It's full of awesome record shops, fabric shops and even right next to the soho branch of Beyond Retro. What more could you want?
I of course paid The Cloth House a visit, and was as usual desperate to buy almost all of their gorgeous cotton prints. I am determined to come back in the summer and buy some to make shirts and dresses with. I also picked up some lunch from my favourite soho café Yumcha, and of course spent ages looking at all the different herbal teas.
I hope you are all having a good week, and have a good Easter weekend! I will have various posts from Bournemouth ready when I get back on Saturday. Also, just another reminder that you can vote for me in Company's Style Blogger Awards under 'Best Teen Blogger - Under 18' HERE if you want to...I really would appreciate it!
