The Shop that’s on Top.

by laurenlux

Shopping. Shopping. Shopping.

Yesterday and today we went yes, you guessed it, shopping. Oxford Circus, Regent Street, Carniby Street, and much much more. In other words, danger. 5 floor Top Shop, Selfridges, Oasis, Warehouse, Reiss, Whistles, Kurt Geiger, you name it. All the amazing stores that the UK has to offer! I also finally set myself up a bank account (last errand I had to run) and now I feel fully moved in. When I was living in Milan I didn’t even have a bank account! This just makes me feel more authentic.

Me yesterday in Oxford Circus getting ready for 5 floor Top Shop!

coat/scarf – Wilfred, hat – talula, plaid shirt – vintage, bag – Alexander Wang, shoes – Aldo

Like I said. 5 floor Top Shop.

Theme of the day: Layers

Fashion Tip: Something I love doing recently is layering – its warm and trendy. Also very big on tying the bottom of a t-shirt just to add a little character, especially if its too long to show the shirt you layer it with.

t-shirt – Wilfred, fringed tank – Wilfred, watch – vintage Casio, necklace – vintage

Much more to London than just fashion…

Of course since I was with my dad these past few days I knew it would be important to be somewhat of a tourist, so I took him to see some of the main sites today including Big Ben, the Parliament buildings, Buckingham Palace, and the Eye. Conveniently enough, these are all walking distance from Green Park, which is the tube stop that I work closest to. I only discovered this today, so it was rather exciting. I also discovered that the end of the street I’m working on leads to Regent Street (shopping) and Regent Street meets with Oxford Circus (more shopping). Again, danger. This is a pretty ritzy area. But I have to admit that I’m really ecstatic to know that there are lots of great restaurants and shops around me. If I do get a lunch break I will definitely not get bored!

Right by Buckingham Palace

En route to touring!

Burlington Arcade – this beautiful tunnel/galleria has many jewelry, shoe, and clothing boutiques. It takes you straight up to the street where I work.

Cork Street. The street where I will be working starting Monday.

Starworks Group office is in this building on the 2nd floor. So exciting!
