Well, as I'm not going to boot sales at the weekends now, I was at a loss of what to do. On Tuesday Christopher had a school trip to the Tate Modern on the South Bank. He really enjoyed it and he bought a book on street art and also wants to go back next week (as it's school holidays) for another look around and to buy the 2nd volume of the street art book.
Well, as we all decided that we could eat a hot salt beef and mustard bagel, we hit Brick Lane for our lunchtime hit and also a wander round to view the street art (grafitti, really!)
I've not been around here on a Saturday and was surprised to see a handful of shops open. One of those was Sam Greenberg Vintage, which I had a lovely browse around. I spied some things, but I'm not buying at the moment-amongst the names was a Courreges padded raincoat for £35, a Guy Laroche coat for £35, a Bill Blass tweed dress and a gorgeous cream crepe and gold beaded Neiman Marcus dress for £35. The two coats were really dirty though, its surprising some of these places don't clean their items first. Mind you, the boy who worked there said, there was no electricity, no hot water, so no heating!!
Hey Rob, who's the superhero?
Another shop we went into was really timewarped in the 60s and 70s, some lovely stuff here-clothes, ornaments, furniture and these great 'Top of the Pops' pictures!!
Of course, I thought I would layer up today, so here are my new tights, my boots from last weeks boot sale, my black Warehouse knitted dress with bell sleeves and my hand knitted gilet-oh, I do feel cosy, haha!!
So, we duly took some pictures of the street art going on around E1 and then went and got our bagels-very nice too!!
While we were in the area, I had a look in Start, Rivington Street, a very stylish boutique in Hoxton. Prices were totally out of my league, but I did enjoy the look around!!
