"WHAT IT ALL COMES DOWN TO, IS EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE FINE FINE FINE".

Listening to: One Hand In My Pocket- Alanis Morissette

I've had an amazing weekend/ beginning of the week that it's taken me this long to get all my thoughts together and have the time to sit down and blog.

On Saturday me and Chris popped to our usual London haunt- Camden, mostly to buy a few t-shirts for him and a day out. I love Camden- walking around the stables and market, looking at all the handmade stalls and the food! I can't seem to leave London without eating something from Camden Lock- I would say it's the best place to eat in London.

The majority of the shops/stalls don't interest me that much but I would strongly recommend visiting the electric ballroom (especially the stalls at the very back and the nice gentleman who sells vinyl), the army surplus stall in Camden Stables and just found the corner is a man who sells the BIGGEST and possibly the  best collection of music t-shirts (and is incredibly friendly), and Rockit (you have to have a but if a dig around but they have some great vintage pieces- but are rather size limited).

I remember when I was 12/13 coming to Camden and its changed a lot. I know everyone is moaning about the "death of the high street"  lately (I may never listen to New music ever again- I'm too much of a technophobe to download and until much of a browser to buy CDs online) but seeing how high street Camden has become (with shops such as Office- who I do love- replacing shops that used to be independently run) I'm welcoming it . I miss the old shops, I miss being able to buy old drainpipe jeans that came up to my belly button (Topshop don't come close enough).

I've finally seemed to have learnt my less in about the cobbles in the stables- no heels! Instead I wore my much loved Leopard print flatforms.


Hat: New Look
 Flatforms: Office
 Jeans: Topshop (similar here)
Scarf: Camden Market (very old now)
Bag: River Island
 Oversized Denim Jacket: Charity Shop (similar here)
Cardigan: Primark (mens)

This cardigan I picked up spur of the moment but I'm so glad I did! It's a little bit big but great for layering and how cut is the woollen collar and AMAZING toggled buttons?!?!!! I love it!

The bag was a birthday present from my parents and feels a little whole in my eccentric bag collection- it's knitted and a  Fox!! I'm a little bit Fox mad at the moment- they're beautiful. I think it has a little to do with having ginger hair. I've become a bit obsessive of any lookbook.nu post with a fox bag on it and keep looking at bags online! This orange fox satchel from eBay is very very cute, and this little felt bag (from Ji Ji Kiki) is just.... wow! Plus a massive part of me wants this mint fix inspired bag from ASOS Marketplace is such a cool spin :)


Can I have 100 Fox related items?

  7. Such a cute & casual outfit - and YAY for Office flatforms! I own so many now!

    I miss living in Camden so much, especially when I read your posts on it. Sounds like you had a lovely day out though!

    IT'S ALMOST LFW! We can all hang out again :) I'm in Bournemouth for the first two days but around after that. Can't wait! We need a MASSIVE catch up.
