What I love right now;
My lush new Whistles ankle boots; as my mum said, when I sent her a link, "subtle as ever, dear".
(In the background; new but less beloved stripy pumps) I'm not at all frustrated that I splashed out 150 smackers on these bad boys the very day before a weekly women's mag announced a 25% discount. No, sir.
Campus London - at work, I've taken on a side project at this seven storey building full of start ups in Old Street. It's a pretty inspiring place, rammed full of entrepreneurs who've jacked everything in, in pursuit of an idea they had once, and events on everything from networking to self-publishing to famous speakers and classes.
Eagerly waiting for the two prints I bought in Jessica Hische's typographic sale. She's hands-down my favourite designer right now. I got the Q & U as they were my favourites, and now I kind of wish I had meaningful private nicknames for those I love starting with those initials.
Lovely Zoe gifted me this mad, beautiful raven-and-worms silk scarf from Red Brick. I feel like such a ~lady~ wearing it.
Look! It's a stock market scarf! The illustrations are all hand done, and so gorgeous.
Also, I'm really enjoying Junot Diaz's short story collection This Is How You Lose Her, mostly because of the frequent Dominican slang, which means I have to keep going away to look up sucio and chochas, then returning with raised eyebrows.
I'm off to Copenhagen soon; where should I go and what should I see? All tips appreciated!
