Shopping Excursion

Last weekend I was invited by the delightful Penny Dreadful of Penny Dreadful Vintage, who calls London home, to meet at the Royal Academy near Piccadilly Circus and go on an afternoon shopping excursion to the iconic Carnaby Street and the ultra rich New Bond Street (home of many a designer shop). Needless to say it was a wonderful afternoon and I thought I would share some of the photos I snapped. Also, I just have to say, it’s so amazing that being part of an online community of bloggers can not only mean that you meet fascinating and fabulous people online but that sometimes you can actually get to spend some time with those people in the real world!

Oh gosh, the Prada is sending me into lust overdrive. How great was their really ladylike fall collection? Looks like you had a lovely shopping trip. I've been trying to keep myself away from the stores lately and save some money! Easier said than done.
