I go to London every fall. It's one of my favorite places in the world.
This is a fashion blog, so I have to talk about Bond Street. There is nothing more beautiful than Bond Street at the end of November. All of the streets are lit up with hundreds of lights. This is not a place for you if you don't like crowds because every inch of every street is packed full of hundreds of people. In my opinion, this street is where real fashion is born. From what I can only call a Top Shop mall, to the designer stores such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel, to the small boutiques, art galleries and antique shops, Bond Street is the place to shop in London. This area of London is so overwhelming that you could spend days there without actually seeing every store.
But for those of us that can't spend a week shopping Bond Street, I bring you my London inspired outfits.
I love these grey skinny jeans. They are so comfortable, but still look really sexy. Pair these jeans with a slouchy british flag shirt to give yourself the instant London feel. I also added a small grey purse that you can wear across the body and a big silver ring for an outfit that you can wear for any occasion.
My favorite café in London is a small place called Patisserie Valerie. Always the friendliest service and the most delicious cappuccino and absolutely sinful scones. When I think of London, that is the fondest memory I have: The mornings I spent at Patisserie Valerie.
Every morning there was a group of friends sitting at a nearby table. On one of the mornings, One of the girls wore grey skinny jeans, an "I love London" t-shirt, and a studded leather jacket. I thought she was so stylish, that I had to take my inspiration for this blog from her outfit. When I think of London, I think fashion and I think ANYTHING GOES! From conservative to punk, you see such a wide range of fashion that it really is inspiring. No two people will be dressed alike in London. And that's one of the things I love about the city. Fashion is unique, from person to person.
This week you're living London, so live a little!
If you ever go to London, take the metro. That's where you will find hoards and hoards of Londoners on their way to school, work, or just going out with friends. It's where the real fashion can be seen. I love to sit on the metro and watch what people are doing and what they are wearing.
The metro is such an important part of London that it's even been put on people's feet! One brand of shoes creates a map on the sole of the shoe while another actually uses the fabric from the metro seats.
So next time you're in London, pay attention to the people on "the Tube" and enjoy a large variety of fashion and trends.
London is a place of innovation and this week you too can take inspiration from London.
London is Fashion. Fashion is Love.
We love London.
Until next time, Ta Ta For Now <3
