London Calling

I'll be in London this weekend for a friend's birthday. Whilst desperately hanging about outside Fashion Week shows, I plan to visit Vivienne of Holloway. She stocks lots of adorable 40s and 50s dresses.

I wore this one to a couple of weddings last year and I'm hoping to be able to try on a few more in the shop. I think the pink and white love heart Valentine's Special is my favourite so far.

In the Foyer of the Wynn Hotel in Vegas last October

All the dresses are nipped in at the waist and boned which gives me a fake waist (I just go straight up and down and out at all the wrong places). The only minor problem is that they actually strangle me - cut me right in two. But hey, you gotta suffer a little, don't you? Just need to lay off the cakes...

However, a wee trip to Laduree at Harrods is not out of the question. Any other suggestions for nifty little boutiques or cafes in the big smoke?
