Mr. Practical vs Mrs. Dreamer

Suitcases

I'm so excited to be heading to London tomorrow.  As every trip Mr Silent and myself end up having heated debates about the simple things in life...shoes and suitcases...

Mr Silent, who usually proves me wrong time and time again, is trying to convince me to leave my pretty shoes here while I run around the wonderful shops of London in my scruffy old, waterproof and comfortable boots....'sacrilege!!!' 

My head says he's right but my heart can't bear the idea of  walking into Browns or Liberty in my everyday walking shoes........ohhhh the dilemma.....

I probably will hide my pretty pair in the bag and before I turn the corner on to South Molton Street I'll change...

Have a lovely weekend... will report on my adventures on Monday

J’aime London

 Next week, Paris is hosting the bi- annual fabric show Premiere Vision. I love going to it, mainly because it’s a great opportunity to see my friends from all over the world, who find themselves in the same place at the same time.

It also marks the beginning of a new season…..... Spring Summer 2011

 

This is the year of change and pleasure (or so I have decided) so my plan to go to Paris has changed for a trip to London. I'm so excited to be going back after a few years of absence.

The last time I visited London was probably around the same time of the year (maybe a little later) and I was in the middle of trying to source fabrics and fit dresses for the Baftas and Oscars.

 

This year my trip which is in some ways similar, is slightly less eventful and stressful......promising great inspiration and lots of fun

 

If you have any favourite or secret places you know and would like to share I would love to hear from you…..anything from shops, galleries, restaurants….

 

Merci Beaucoup
