While the Queen, the Royal family and the whole of UK celebrated her 60 years on the throne in one part of London (and my did they celebrate in style!), I celebrated by gallivanting around London ignoring the miserable rain!
I wanted to see what the Queen wore on this special occasion and was not disappointed by the photos. The Queen’s coat and hat was designed by Angela Kelly. I love the colour and regal style of the coat made of silk organza with Swarovski details on the hat . Even at this age, the Queen has style!!
Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, looked beautiful in an Alexander McQueen red pleated skirt suit finished off with a nude pair of heels-which seem to be her favourite pair of heels. But it was perfect for off setting the red and making sure there was not an over-kill of red.
Rather than do a lot of talking in this post, I will let the pictures do the talking. I started off by eating at The Breakfast Club in Soho and roamed around Carnaby Street taking in the sights and sounds. I also visited Liberty who have an amazing collection of scarves (Alexander McQueen, Kenzo, Etro, Paul Smith, Christopher Kane and the likes) and stationery! Poles apart but equally amazing. I DIE.
After our brunch, we made a pit stop at the oh-so-cool vintage store Beyond Retro. They have some really cool stuff if you’re into vintage.
Has anyone been to Pylones?? They serve the quirkiest and most colourful stuff ever. I love that shop. You have to check it out.
And right opposite to it you have Irregular Choice- another quirky footwear store that dabble in a bit of everything; shoes, clothes, bags, sunglasses. And as the name would have it, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea!
Saving ourselves from the rain, we ran into another fabulous Italian cafe’ in Soho called Princi Bakery. It is my favourite place to go for coffee and food in Soho so far!!
For anyone looking to invest in a good designer bag, Liberty is currently doing a 40% discount on most of their bag range including Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, Mulberry etc. I was eyeing this yellow python print Falabella bag by Stella McCartney for £795 and after discount it was for around £477. So tempting!! Just one thing- you have to sign up to their loyalty card. Honey for that discount- I’ll sign up for any loyalty card!!
Anyway, the following pictures show how I spent my Jubilee day!
Enjoy and keep on visiting my website for more cool and fashionable stuff! xx
