TRIED & TESTED: OLD SPITALFIELDS MARKET

March 8, 2011

If you love vintage the market stalls of Old Spitalfields Market are a big plus. I don’t like vintage. But happily for me the shops and restaurants around the market stalls are fantastic. Take for example In Spitalfields. Almost everything I collected on Pinterest (stationary, beautiful Rob Ryan mugs, Alphabet Bags, Keep Calm and Carry On books) are being sold here. Perfect addresss for presents.

This is what I bought at In Spitalfields (13 Lamb Street):

If you walk further you will find the Lollipop Shoppe. Opened in 2010 and it’s a fantastic design paradise.

Leon is a fast food restaurant where everything is fresh, organic and natural. And the interior is great too (at the end of this month they open a restaurant in Soho as well).

The Luxe is a 24 hour, multifunctional café. You can go there for breakfast, lunch, an afternoon drink, dinner or some cocktails at night. I ordered a delicious Caesar Salad with just enough anchovy (sometimes restaurants use only one piece and I like a lot of it in my salad).

On the other side of the road you will find St John Bread and Wine. A well known place from the owners of St John restaurant (and their new hotel in Chinatown).

For those of you in love with Lomography there’s a Lomography Store.

And next door I’ve spotted these cute shoes: full of grace through the rain (and no I didn’t match them with the cameras above, that’s a coincidence).

LIKE TO HAVE: AN ALLSAINTS WARDROBE

November 25, 2010

I fell in love with All Saints when I was in London a couple of years ago. I visited their flagshipstore in Spitalfields and loved the soft fabric and the twisted details. For a moment I thought of Rick Owens – but that’s impossible for that prices. It’s a bit rough – not for the girly, girly type of woman. On this wednesdaynight I did some online shopping and these are my favorites:

Clockwise, from left to right:

1. Jumper (cool with a leather legging): 295 euro
2. Scarf: 47 euro
3. Top: 55 euro
4. Denim short: 59 euro
5. The most beautiful purse ever: 59 euro
6. Leather skinny jeans: 177 euro
