Sorry for the late post, I have never been savvy to seize a good hour to stop and format a blog post when it's a week off school, 2 weeks off or more I could definitely curate a piece but 7 days...(its 5 but we still call it a week) I CANNOT DO IT! Maybe its the sudden impact of being intersected so quicky without adapting to the latest routine, This situation occurs at the start of a new school year; Difficulties to listen, Not able to write (MESSY) and confuse myself with the new and previous timetable of the hand-selected lessons I have each day. Fuck that YOLO!
*****I WILL BE JOINING THIS CLAD AT SOME POINT IN BLACK SO JEN WON'T BE LONELY and making this equal and symmetrical*****
So after travelling to Marylebone via hot sweaty tube we steadily roved to Alfies Antique Market, It barely met up to my dream antique plentiful wonderland expectations if I had to speak from the depths of my nitty-gritty hypothesis. I had the impression in my mind that the actual interior would be very stylish, The range of stock for sale did exceed my expectations but it wouldn't hurt to make this place a destination and give it a must deserved buzz. We didn't get to delve into Alfies as much as I would like to as we were all starving for some food so we spent most of our time in or more appropriately on TOP at the Roof TOP terrace cafe. I'm picky when it comes to food thus ate two croissants however I did get thumbs up from the rest of the gang who had proper meals. Other than the cuisine the weather was AMAZINGGGGGGG! I think the four of us had telepathic moment where we were all thinking in our minds "I wished I lived in London"

My favourite part of the day was visiting the extraordinary Vivienne Westwood World's End boutique on the glamorous King's Road, The many weathered shades of grey slate tiles contrasting against the tiffany blue painted frames as if were the back of a galleon with the iconic mammoth-sized cuckoo clock whizzing around anti-clockwise at an insane pace. Walking up the rickety steps thinking that you will land on level ground; THINK NOT! The wood decked floor slightly slopes (If this place is meant to mimic a ship then it certainly has reached its goal) resulting with a feeling of being.......Drunk? On the right you will see A line of blank faced mannequins dressed in the latest gear (A lie in this case as the majority of the stock is reissued classic Westwood in new styles) and on the left you will on most days meet Lisa who embodies the brand head-to-toe and everything cool. An absolute sweetheart and deserves to be featured in the international ad campaign along with Vivienne and Andreas in my opinion if already has so.
Being broke I couldn't purchase anything which was a real downer however one can still appreciate his companionships buys, My favourite and I know Rich and Pearl will agree is Jen's Lily Dress casted from an end of a Gold Label roll of candy-stripe taffeta (Chanel actually destroy their leftover fabric so that's one more reason why to <3 Westwood) that only composed two dresses worth so I'm looking forward for September to see Jen sporting the couture on her birthday in the forthcoming September. A big thank-you to Pearl for organising the trip and kiss kiss to Jen and Rich for joining us!
