A while back I posted my friend Nikki... who is one of my most fashionable friends! Sometime she steels her moms Stella McCartney dress or wears her own Rag & Bone one...and will always add some rugged edgy pieces for a less pretentious feel. One thing I learned from her... don't be afraid to change up your hair... dramatically.
Also have to add in how incredible her halloween costume was last year... Edie Sedgwick. Nuff said.
Today I went to Brixton Village with Jess. What an incredible place. We went to Brick Box and ate delicious crepes. When I looked out the window, I thought about places where I had been looking in windows and seen people eating a socialising and curious about what it was like inside...and there I was...on the inside, looking out.
The atmosphere was cluttered and exciting with dried flower arrangements and little glass pots with raw sugar. Chefs making crepes just behind and busy waiters bring around dishes with asparagus, goats cheese, rocket, tomato and caramelized onions.
Brixton village market is full of Caribbean ingredients and cake shops, as well as a few interesting bars and a wig shop. Best if you experience it for yourself.
This morning I had brunch with the lovely ladies I'm friends with in London. Sarah, Rhi, Lorna, Jess and I all went to Le Chandelier in East Dulwich. Inside are mix matched chairs, cake plates with many delicious treats, an assortment of vintage tea cups and of course, loads of chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. One of the major discussions I've been having this new year, is making time for yourself and making sure you're living YOUR life, whether you are in a relationship, dating or single. Simple things like meeting for a cup of tea or taking the dogs for a walk (which Jess and I did after brunch) are the chicken soup for the soul type things you simply have to make time for. When I got dressed for the occasion.. I wore my red leopard print pencil skirt, a black turtle neck knit sweater and my fur. If you can't wear your fur to Sunday brunch with the girls...where can you wear it?
