London baby!!

We're going to London this weekend, if one more person says 'to buy heat magazine' it will be the end of me. We're going on a college trip which has no pretence of being even slightly educational, well we are going to the Globe theatre and seeing a play there but we are also going to see Wicked and going shopping in Covent garden! heck what joy. But what the frick to pack? Us three will most likely all have massive suitcases and everyone else will have some little titchy bags. I realise this makes us sound a bit more country than we are, we do actually leave Yorkshire more than once a year.

Sooo, shopping in Covent garden. Where is good to go? Between us we know our way around but we have limited time. Are there any good vintage places? Any help will be muchly appreciated.

Some pictures which I meant to post but I broke the camera a bit. So now when I pout the pictures onto the computer I have to transfer the memory card to the old camera which I also broke a bit...
My mum's shoes which I hated as a child but I started thinking about the other day so I went on a hunt to find them. They pinch a bit as I have big feet. This is not helped by the pointyness.With this outfit I wore a headband. Finally. Probably looked like an odd one but it's been a long time coming. Wearing a headband I mean, I look odd a lot of the time... Unfortunatly this is not my skirt.
Inspiration from Etro S/S 08 and wearing Wendy-May's shirt.It was chilly. And I was a bit over dressed for a country park.
I think I fell backwards here... how embarassing. That will teach me not to take so many pictures of myself.
The shirt/blouse thing is apparently something a nurse or air hostess would wear according to college friends. I just nod and smile when people say these things.
Denim dress. £3.50. Splendid. Pam's blousey thing.

wow wow wow, all these outfits look really, really good. Except the last one, though, it looks a bit outdated, no? But as for the others - love! The shoes are very darling!

Have a great time, I really want to go see Wicked too, though the shopping will just be as good! Covent garden is so lovely. Be sure to stop at the pasty shop if you get hungry!

i love the denim dress! and the nurse shirt :)

that always happens to me with regards to my mom's old shoes (or clothes!) I hated most of them a long time ago, but now look for them in my basement due to old reminiscents! :P

Og god that 'we're going to London to buy Heat magazine' song gets stuck in my head so much.
Enjoy London, and please DON'T buy Heat!

I really like the blouse, the black piping on it gives it a kind of Chanel feel. I love it!
You will LOVE london. If you have time, go to brick lane, they have brilliant vintage shops there. Especially beyond retro - it is literally a massive warehouse full of EVERYTHING!

Ooh, I love the 'air hostess' outfit! It's my fav! I also really like the etro inspired combo. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! Two make-up shops which are a must see in Covent garden, Sceenface and Pout xx

Oof I love the nurse blouse - despite what others might think!
Am very jealous of the denim dress. Button fronts = goodness. I found one similar but it was huuuuge which was bloody annoying.
