After much anticipation, I finally made it over to Monki today... only to walk in and realize I had been to the shop plenty of times before when visiting Sweden, but just never remembered the name. Oh well, that didn't kill my buzz. The shop was a bit sparse for sale stock but I managed to find a little black Anna dress that I had been eyeing up on the website and a little florescent orange tube top (gasp!?) to wear under it. The back is quite low, racerback, and sort of mesh - all of which work to rule out a conventional bra. I also grabbed a grey and white stripped t-shirt dress contraption that has a massive pocket, a detail that seems to be a trademark of the shop. I then sauntered over to Weekday where I fell head over heels for a fringed suede jacket... it was still 70 quid after being reduced by 50% and since fringed suede jackets are normally my thing I thought that maybe I better think about it for a few days. But, seriously, how gorgeous is it?! Then headed into a shop called Solo where I found the coolest leggings with leather patches on them by Made in the Shade... am thinking they are going to act as the springboard for a new futuristic inspired look.
Ah, holiday goodies... how happy you make me.
