Cliché title again, I know, but I rather have good musical songs as titles to my posts. It makes me think I am somewhat a cultural creature, who enjoys the fine arts. And that song is good, in its style going from happy and cheerful, down to feeling more of that the dooms day is near. Of all the songs I heard about London, No place like London I think represents it best. Things are more intense there, in every way. The people are more intense, surprising, and so is the rhytme of the streets there. I can’t get enough of London, it is so diffrent from the calm, shy and extremly earth bond Sweden.
On my vacation, I did spend 3 days in London (the rest of the time I was on an airfield, but more on that in an other post), and I convinced my husband to go exploring the vintage and second hand stores in the central area. I also visited the world famous umbrella shop James Smith and Sons, which made my heart beat faster. I highly recommend it for everyone who loves umbrellas, or just small specialized stores with a heart. You can’t really do everything you want to do in London on one trip (or ten), but try squize this store in. I am sure you will love it.
Oki, I can talk about this for ever, but instead I will drown you in photos instead. Not so many as the most of the shops had an anti photographing policy (which I realised to late, ops!). We started the day with going to the umbrella store.
At last we found it. Boringly enough, Absolute Vintage was one of the shops with an anti photographing policy. But my opinion about is that it was a good shop, you could look through things there for ages, but it was hopelessly overpriced. Instead I recommend you all to go to Retro Clothing on the same street. Just as nice clothes, but a 10th of the price of Absolute Vintage.
Inside Retro Clothing. I bought my black star patterned dress here, for only 5 pounds.
Going back to my husbands place after a long but nice day. This outfit is not stylish or so, I just took it as it was comfortable because I knew I would walk alot. All of them seen in this blog before (who said you can’t show your favorites more then once?), but if you missed it, the wellies is from Everest, the dress Saints and Mortals, Socks and leggings and t-shirt HM and belt is handed down vintage.
So, this is pretty much what I did in London, which I thought was good as I was there less then 3 days in total. The post about my week on Rougham Airfield will be better.
