But, nevertheless, when we found each other we decided to go on a girls’ shopping trip around London. We explored so many incredible places that I’ve always wanted to go to, Carnaby Street being just one of them. Carnaby Street is actually located super close to Oxford Street, so if you’re arriving for a shopping day then you really don’t have far to travel. I was instantly in awe at all of the bright colours the second that we arrived!
The whole street was filled with flowers, colour and glitter. It really was absolutely gorgeous! The walls were covered in street art and arrgh! I just love it! It was quite busy and therefore difficult to take photos without a blurry man wondering what I’m earth I’m doing. But, so instagrammable!
Our first visit was to the Skinny-dip store; the front window looked incredible and it had the same Hate Sucks theme as the event we were due to attend on the evening. We had a look inside and i instantly fell in love with all of their stationery! Seeing so much Skinny-dip was INCREDIBLE, in Birmingham we only have a small concession in Selfridges, and it was like a little stall of heaven.
As we were rushed for time we didn’t get to go into too many shops, but I also went to Monki and fell in love with just about all of their basics! They had stripe tees in so many colours and I just wanted to buy them all, though I did manage to restrain myself and leave with just one. Well, if I didn’t buy it then I’d have had to purchase it online and pay for postage, so it was rude not to. Am I right?!
I really, really wish we’d had more time to explore Carnaby Street as it was my absolute shopping dream! I could have gone and spent millions, if only I had the funds! I can’t wait to head back to London for a shopping trip and to do some more exploring. If you have any recommendations, please do let me know in the comments box!
