Style Domination Goes to London, Part 2

I LOVE LONDON.  It’s just amazing.  This city, steeped in history, has such an amazing energy, such a cool vibe…I feel it was blessed with way more coolness than any other place on Earth.  Every time I visit, I do not want to leave.  I want to be one of those British cool girls, walking down Regent Street like it’s a runway.  I want to spend my days touring Westminster Abbey, exploring the British Museum, shopping at Selfridge’s and discovering amazing restaurants.

There is more to just London than rain, history and off-the-hook shopping.  The city centre is a diverse, multicultural melting pot with a plethora of cool neighbourhoods such a Notting Hill, Chelsea, Brixton and Marylebone.  I hope to explore these cool little ‘hoods a little more on my next trip.

Here are some highlights from this latest visit!

Jen's neighbourhood is gorgeous, especially since the Thames runs through it.

Came across some beautiful swans while walking the dogs.  Gorgeous and unfriendly.

Dinner at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. Review on its way!

This lovely lady (below) was at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon at the same time as us for dinner and she caught our eye due to her fabulous outfit.  We chased her and her husband down for a street style shot as they were leaving.  She was so sweet to indulge us!  Check out her Burberry trench over a dress which I believe to be Oscar de la Renta (forgot to confirm).  She rocks her pale pink Lady Dior bag and Roger Vivier shoes.  “On point” is an understatement.

    It looks like you had so much fun, the last time I went to London I was 10years old so I can’t remember much. I hope when I go next year I have a great experience to share with you?

          Oh wow!!! Where exactly do you live? My dreaming to travel to Africa one day. I’ve been to Egypt, but would love to see Kenya, Tanzania, Cape Town, Mount Kilimanjaro!!!

    Ugh. Girl, let me tell you about my love for London. It’s my literal actual life goal to move there. It WILL happen. And in the meantime, I take trips whenever I can and live vicariously through people who visit there any other time. It’s my absolute favorite city in the WORLD. And you have done London right! This entire trip looks just amazing. You obviously had a great time!

      Thank you so much!!! London holds a special place in my heart. Bi was born there and came to Canada while very young. I try to get back there as much as possible. London has an energy and coolness that other cities just can’t duplicate!!! If I won the lottery tomorrow, I’d be on the first plane back to the Motherland! Lol! ??????

        Thanks Davis! We would tear it up shopping in London!! Lol!

    Love the V & A. My daughter was there recently 🙂 (and those Alien shoes!)

      Excellent! It was such a beautiful museum! And yes! Lady Gaga is a big fan of those shoes (naturally!!!). xo
