Vintage Fashion, Bagels, Modern Art and Boutiques-E1

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!!
Hope you are enjoying your Saturday-now I will go and chill out-I have a lovely week off now!

What FANTASTIC and creative street paintings. I love good graffiti, even though I know it's, technically, "naughty." Law-wise. What a fun field trip for you and the fam, Sharon!

Aren't the salt beef bagels the best. You must take a wander around Spitalfields old market, lots of fab stalls.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi kate-oh yes, I could have had 2 to myself, haha!! The last time I was at Spitalfields was last year (on a Sunday), I just adore the whole of this area!

Siljesfashion said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Silje-thanks, we did have a lovely time! Hope you have a great Sunday too my dear!

Your vest is to die for! & the graffiti is so beautiful! graffiti is actually a crime in Singapore & people get CANED because of it :/

Nadine said...

You look awesome as always :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Yiqin-thanks for your lovely comment-That is really amazing about the caning, but I suppose each country has its laws that have to be abided by! Maybe if it happened here, you would not see the grafitti around as much!

Hi nadine-thanks so much my dear!
