This Saturday yours truly went for East London exploring mission together with my new dear friend Linda, talented stylist and photographer that also writes amazing Alice in Wonderland blog. After Columbia Road where I almost fainted when I saw Ryantown, shop of my favorite collage artist Rob Ryan, the road and Linda took us to Brick Lane, the heaven of hip and vintage. On the first glance, as soon as I stepped into This Shop Rocks store I knew I would adore this place. Two floors of the shop are full of all kind of vintage things from home décor, toys, books and postcards to delicate clothing pieces. The friendly couple (maybe) that works there look like from some aged novel and place has such a nice unpretentious and serene aura.
Linda bought herself vintage silky nightdress in pale pink trimmed with nice delicate lace and I fell for adorable cake tins that are all over the place but since I have one suitcase I don’t allow myself any décor till I find a permanent place. However, I’ll be visiting this place often!
