day out in london

I’ve had this week booked off since the beginning of the year and even though Simons wrist operation had put a stop to our original plans (New York) for this week I decided that I would leave Simon to fend for himself and go to Lond on for the day with my Mum.

The first thought I would go to Petticoat Lane, I read up on it I knew that really I needed to up on a Sunday but the day I wanted to go was Tuesday there should be a smaller market on Wentworth Street.

we got into Fenchurch Street about 11 o’clock and using the maps app on my phone managed to find Wentworth Street we couldn’t find the market, but the other things I wanted to do was visit some fabric shops and some vintage dress shops.

I bought some fabric in Epra Fabrics

and a Dress in absolute Vintage.

as you can maybe see the dress is totally see through, I’ve already bought some brown lining fabric for it.

then we decided to go and look at St. Pauls cathedral, as it was £16 to get in we just looked around the outside.

Back to Tower Hill and we went and saw the poppies commemorating the First World War they look amazing.

All in all it was a good day out and we enjoyed our selves.
