Fancy Pants!

My sister bought me a pair of butterfly shorts for my birthday. I love them...they are sort of "pretty nightmare elegant", very me!

I decided to wear them out on a stroll across the trendy lands of London Fields, along the canal, through Broadway Market where I picked up a copy of Betty Magazine.

We then then grounded ourselves once more on the feisty Mare Street.

Unlike the more elegant parts of London, east London is restless so the cityscape is in a constant state of creative flux. Things appear and then disappear in a blink of an eye. 

Hackney often sees these psychedelic mushrooms popping up here and there but I have never seen quite so many in one place before. They bring some welcome colour to the otherwise dead space, in my opinion.

I made the bag that you can see me dragging my things around in. I used a vibrant Ghanaian cotton print cloth, perfect for market trips I think.

  1. Are those shorts from TS? I'm sure I saw some trousers just like those in there. I really need to experiment with patterns more. Digging the shrooms pop ups

  2. Fancy pants indeed. This part of London is so colourfully vibrant. The African inspired bag is so pretty too. Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Ahhhhh I didn't see this post before!
    I love those creepy shorts on you!!!!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
