Portobello Markets

Portobello beckons with her diverse selection of food, good strong brews of coffee (as strong as they come in the UK; Coffee Plant comes highly recommended with its double shot flat white) and a delightful array of antique goods waiting to be snapped up by the savvy, trained shopper.

Even without money, one could satisfy even the most ravenous of appetites with the gourmet collection of street fashion that Portobello attracts. And that's exactly what I did...

White socks and brogues is all over the cat walk, everywhere in Shoreditch (needless to say) and a quick and easy way to update your look this season. French bourgeois boys have been doing this for years, never caring that it was out of vogue, only the English could take it and make it rock n roll.

Cute like a cupcake; you want to wrap her up in a dainty box like you would a Hummingbird red velvet cupcake!

So daring, so bold, yet so relaxed in love.

My other half loved this look, I have to admit, he's right. The, the, the legs...

...and hair so devine it deserves a close-up. A look that requires dedication but is worth every effort.
