London (Part 2)




Red bowler hat: Camden Market, London
Biker jacket: H&M
Cardigan: Shout, Manchester
Floral dress: Portobello Market, London
Faux fur fox tail: H&M
Alexa-inspired satchel: Blogshop


Whenever I'm in London, I always try to schedule a trip to Camden Market. It's a quirky place that satisfies all the 4 S's; sight, sound, smell, shop. The whole place is so colourful and you see all sorts of interesting people there, from punk rockers to vintage girls. There'd be reggae music blasting out of someone's speakers in one corner and indie music coming from another. Further along, the yummy aroma that wafts from the international food stalls is enough to make anyone drool. However, the best bit here is the shopping. It kinda reminds me of Bangkok's Jatujak market.

1. Beer bottle clocks

2. Pwetty necklaces

3. Cameo necklaces

4. Toothpaste tissue boxes

5. Vinyl

6. Vintage suitcases

7. My new red bowler hat

8. In the evening, we went to watch a musical, The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre. It was brilliant! Love the songs and the actress that plays Christine Daae sang ever so beautifully. My favourite scene was of the Masquerade Ball. So many pretty, glittery costumes on display!

Have you watched any musicals?

  4. This place looks so cool! All of these goods are so lovely and/or unusual. I need to show John the picture of the beer bottle clocks; he's interested in bartending so I'm sure he'll get a kick out of them. And I absolutely love the pretty necklaces! Thanks for sharing!

    The last musical I saw was Avenue Q. Have you heard of it? It's like Sesame Street for adults, with grown-up themes and problems...haha no where near as sophisticated as The Phantom!

  6. I'm dying to visit Camden Market! but it'll be some time before I visit UK again. Last time was too much of a rush :S How big is the market? Do they sell a lot of accessories? How's the price like? It'll be awesome if they sell quirky cheap home decor stuff too! Aiya I feel like I'm bombarding you with questions! haha Hope you don't mind!

  11. I love the necklaces and vintage suitcases. I've always had a thing for vintage suitcases, but I'd never really have a use for them. Even as house decor, I prefer modern over vintage but gah, I love vintage suitcases :<

  18. Love your outfit!! I haven't been to the UK in a long time...I want to go to Camden Market!! Your photos of it are so eclectic and cute.

    I've been lucky enough to be a backstage manager for a few. My highschool was a theater school and we always put on at least a couple of plays every...2 months? <3 My favorite musical might be Wicked though. =)

    Lovely outfit! Your bowler hat is adorable.
