East London


Alexa Chung once said East London was the most fashionable place for style-spotting, yet I always seem to stick with North London or rather Camden in particular. With the high street being disappointing for the last year (in my opinion), my friend and I decided to go off to Shoreditch in search of some vintage shops and one-off pieces in Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market.

Despite getting off to a slow start - where we searched for the market for over an hour before realising not only was it right next to the train station, but I actually pointed it out and said "that sign says Spitalfields Market" before going off in the other direction - we had a good day out and a surprisingly cheap day out as all I bought was a ring from the market for £2 (!) and of course, food. 

I decided to try the 90's buns revival for the day as I always think you can experiment a bit more in London. I couldn't help feeling a bit smug when this ASOS link came through my email the day after I had worn them. https://marketplace.asos.com/community/blog/2013/08/currently-trending-easy-90s-updos

I also couldn't help feeling like Miley Cyrus every time I stuck my tongue out...

And of course we ended up in Camden
