Saturday was a day full of East London adventures. We met up with our friends from Shopikon for an underground shop crawl through East London (where the best shopping happens to be in the city) with Jen from Little Bird Fashion, Ellie from Pretty Much Penniless, and Ulrike from We Are Social. Without them, we never would have discovered all the amazing nooks of the city that have the best and most exclusive fashions London has to offer. The Shopikon team is also so funny and down-to-earth, and all Austrian to be exact, and we had a great day shopping, eating, and laughing. From Brick Lane to Shoreditch to Dalston, we store-hopped and got to know the inspirations and back stories behind them. Beyond Retro, London Loves LA, House of Liza, LN-CC, and Pitfield were a few of the East London spots we hit up. Pitfield was definitely one of my favorite places on the crawl; both a furniture store and restaurant, we chowed down on a healthy and hearty lunch after browsing the beautiful vintage furniture finds the place had to offer. It definitely inspired me to decorate my future home in a colorful, kooky, and perfectly British manner. Beyond retro was a gold mine, let me repeat . . . gold mine of everything and anything vintage and downright spectacular. I could spend hours in there. We ended the night filling ourselves up with wine and French delicacies at Brawn in Dalston before partying with the East London hipsters. I felt like a local and it was rad. I really do understand why London is now the fashion capital of the world. These Brits sure know how to dress. And especially so in East London. I don't think I saw one badly dressed person, and everyone had a vintage-cool-I-don't-give-a-care attitude, and I really loved it. So many creepers, oversized denim jackets and camouflage. And so many beautiful boys. Gah. I felt so at home. Today Natalie and I went back to Brick Lane and Shoreditch for the vintage markets (got some amazing pieces to bring home!). I think we are East London pros (well, nearly). One thing I have to say, those East Londoners sure know how to party. I thought we did it up good in Philly and NYC, but the Brits really do put us to shame.
