A few weekends ago we made an impromptu day trip to London. Originally we had planned to go to Bath for the day to visit Carter's Steam Fair but the weather forecast did not look good enough to enjoy vintage fairground rides so we opted to go to London where it was meant to be a fine day - and it was!
I haven't been vintage shopping in London for some years now but was keen to check out a few of the newer shops that had opened up in Brick Lane. Unfortunately The Vintage Emporium was closed (I don't seem to be having much luck with shop opening hours!) but we visited Hunky Dory Vintage and there was an adorable war time crepe dress with faux bolero which I would have totally snapped if it hadn't been £145!
I love the fit of the dress that I chose to wear and I was also wearing my new-to-me vintage half hat which I recently purchased from The Little Vintage Shop in Lymington - Gloria, the owner, has an awesome selection of vintage hats!
We also visited Judy's Vintage Fair which was taking place in Spitalfields and I scored a cute peach 50s blouse and some pale pink crochet wrist gloves. I also got photographed by them as they loved my outfit and I took the opportunity to take a photograph of the girl promoting the Fair and I absolutely love the print of her dress!
We had lunch at Kua 'Aina which is a Hawaiian burger place in Carnaby Street. I am a big fan of anything sweet potato and their fries are delicious!
In the afternoon we treated ourselves to desserts at Ladurée in Harrods - I am big fan of their macaroons. I also had an Apple Mojito mocktail (even though it was ridiculously priced!)
