My Sunday mornings usually consist of bumming in bed, wasting my time on different websites and watching Friends reruns. I decided to break that routine last Sunday because I realised I’M IN LONDON. So at 10am I peeled myself out of bed and prepared for a day of exploring. A couple of weeks ago, one of my lecturers took our class to Spitalfields as we were on our way to a fabric warehouse in Brick Lane. While we were there, I noticed that there were a bunch of interesting shops and places to eat so I decided to start my day there. As I was walking around following the crowd, I found myself in Hanbury Street in this huge vintage store called Blitz. This place had everything! Bags, shoes, dresses, swimwear, jackets – you name it, they had it! It was slightly overwhelming because of the size of the place, but it was a fun experience nonetheless. My favourite part of the store was the corner of vinyl records. I spent at least 20 minutes in that area just checking out their great selection!
After my stop at Blitz, I walked towards this huge group of people and chanced upon Homegrown, a market for independent designers and makers. There I had the yummiest noodles and the most refreshing pineapple juice I have ever had in my life (I was REALLY thirsty and it was REALLY good). If you’re in London and have the time, make sure you check this place out because it has great food and many young designers selling their work. I particularly liked this one stall of beautiful hats, where I bought the new black hat that I’m wearing in my photos, and this other stall of minimalistic-asymmetrical t-shirts and tank tops. Regrettably, I was so caught up in the moment that taking photos didn’t even cross my mind. Maybe that’s a good thing though, so you guys are all forced to go see the market for yourselves!
