Minni's Closet Prom Dress with Brooches

1920's Blue Long Lace Dress

Paradise Row Gallery - W1

Im not one that usually appreciates art but last weekend i stopped by at Paradise Row for an arty farty evening with the art world, at the opening of their West End exhibition. The modern art was uplifting my favourite artist was Barry Reigate who hides cartoon characters within his work -

Selfridges vending machines - St Martins Lane hotel - Covent Garden

Probably the most ridiculous concept I have ever come across - The Selfridges Vending machine created by Katie Grand (LOVE magazine). Located in St Martins Lane hip hotel the vending machine boasts some of Selfridges most finest products including a Mulberry clutch and a vintage £7000 Rolex watch!

Be careful when falling out of bungalow 8 not to fall into Selfridges most ridiculous trap yet...

Britain's Next Top Model - BBC Studios - W12

Last night I watched the BBC team film the final of Britain's Next Top Model as SJ's sis was working on the show. Obviously I was not going to miss this opportunity to witness 'The Body' (Elle Macpherson) in real life, and let me tell you, she did not disappoint! Looking like a goddess in a floor length gold sequin number the models in the competition looked plain and dowdy next to their mentor. Tiffany won the competition (pretty annoyed about that as I wanted Joy to win! ) Sitting next to the fabulous swimwear designer Melissa Odabash in the audience and watching 6ft beautys parade the stage, Sam and I went home feeling a little minging!

Camden Passage - Islington - N1

I love finding pieces that other people wont have and theres no better way to find those hidden gems than vintage shops. This week I visited some of London's most famous vintage stores in Islington. The pieces are expensive but of excellent quality, whilst vintage shopping you can visit other commercial shops & boutiques that line the cobbled streets of Camden Passage. Camden passage also holds great spots to eat lunch - Byron burger bar reminds me of being in New York.

A Vintage find - St Tropez -SOF

Considering this vintage gem is surrounded by some of the most fabulous and expensive boutiques in the world , the merchandise is not over priced ! I rummaged to find this seasons leather shorts for a bargain 25 EUROS however the fit wasn't great! Sailor chic and scarfs galore as well as battered (in a good way) clutch and handbags were amongst the most popular items.

French label Manoush is the shop that excites me most in St Tropez. Manoush in French means gypsy, throughout the range there is a gypsy hippy inspiration with embellishments and embroidery to die for!
Available on ASOS.COM , My Wardrobe and NET-A-PORTER... However nothing beats the visual uplifting bright lights and flourscent colours in the store:

Liza Bruce Swimwear - Pont Street - LDN

Don't know about you but Im addicted to buying swimwear i just cant get enough of it! The best places to browse are ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Selfridges/Harvey Nicks sales - I find Topshop always disappoints!

However there is a hidden gem in South Kensington which although expensive has the most amazing designs and prints! Extremely colourful and some what over the top the range consists of bikinis, cut out one pieces and beautiful tribal caftans!
