I spent my first day in London hitting the shops of Oxford Circus, London's main high street. I found a couple basics with an edge which I hope will easily lend themselves to things that I already have.
This is my favorite find and something I should have bought in multiple colors. The shirt's light cotton drapes and folds to add some visual interest to what could be a very boring shirt.
All Saints Spitafields
I couldn't pass up this shirt: leopard print and a grey hoodie = my two favorite things. It is All Saints Spitafields which I purchased at Selfridges.
This shell is white faux leather with mesh details on the sides and back. I think I will wear it quite a bit with jeans and a blazer. With a tan, it will be a softer way to wear "leather" in the summer.
I also purchased some cool cosmetics.
I am excited to try each of these nail polishes. The red one is a leather effect polish, I have the black version (http://theglamorouspursit.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/leather-effect-nail-polishskulls.html). The other is designed to look like feathers.
I have needed to stock-up on my Chanel pressed powder which they don't seem to stock in the States.
I bought this poster from the Transport Museum. I thought that the muted colors were beautiful. I can't wait to have it framed.
Macaroons from Lauderee Paris and their packaging were too beautiful to pass up.
Finally, I got a wicker hamper from the veritable Fortum and Mason (photos of the store to come). I think that I will use it to decorate in my kitchen and pretend that I take picnics to the park.
