Every year I take a solo trip to celebrate my birthday. Last year I went to Barcelona and this year I flew to London. I spent a week there and it was definitely not enough time to experience the city, but I did as much as I could. I went to some museums, toured some palaces, went on one of those double decker bus tours (very informative!), ate fish and chips (AND NANDOS!), cream tea at The Dorchester, and managed to fit in a game of Magic the Gathering at a Friday Night Magic. And of course a very enchanting visit to the Harry Potter Studios Tour!
I’m usually more wordy on a travel post, but it’s been 5 months and my memory is a bit rusty. So, here are some photos.
This dress. This vintage 70s knit dress has been in my closet for about a year. I bought it for Hearts and Hearts Vintage, but when I measured it and saw that the measurements were my measurements? Well, I had to try it on. And it was perfect! I immediately deactivated it from my shop and hung it in my personal closet. And that is exactly where it remained for the next year. A couple of weeks ago, as I was organizing and preparing for a pop-up shop, I decided to re-list the dress. It has been hanging there for a year and a beauty like this doesn’t deserve that. IT NEEDS TO BE WORN. And worn it will be. It sold yesterday and I wasn’t prepared for the emotions that came with selling it. I mean, I’ve sold over 300 dresses and sent them off without a care in the world, but this dress? When I got the notification that it had been purchased I seriously got teary eyed. I cried. Over a dress. A fantastic dress, but still a dress. It took me the rest of the evening (and trying it on and taking selfies) to get over it, but I did.
My emotions still surprise me.
