I am a West London girl at heart. It may not be as ‘cool’ or ‘edgy’ as its East End counterpart but I’d pick Chelsea over Hoxton any day. Now that we’ve decamped to suburbia I don’t get the chance to enjoy the delights on offer in SW3 as often as I would like (for some reason the kids don’t seem to like traipsing up and down Kings Road and Sloane Street as much as I do..) But yesterday an old friend of mine was in town so we met at Sloane Square tube station, wandered down to Duke of York Square, and then up Kings Road looking in the shops and chatting (strictly window shopping though, as my bank balance is still recovering from the Christmas excess…) followed by a late lunch and more chatting – when you haven’t seen someone for six months there is lots of catching up to do.
A trip into town wouldn’t be the same without a visit to my favourite store Anthropologie. Temptation lurks in every corner but, although I tried a couple of things on, I left empty handed this time. Big pat on the back for me!
These books in the shape of letters were really cool.
I love the map cushions…
..and the monogram mugs – I think my morning coffee would taste really good in one of these. Because I do so much of my shopping online, it is easy to forget how nice it is to browse around the shops even if you’re just looking. However well laid out and presented a website is, it’s no substitute for the real thing!
Hope you’ve had a nice weekend. X
