It's Blitz!

Exploring Eastern London was my favorite part of the London trip. I always enjoy escaping the tourists and crowded city centers. We originally ventured to this part of town to see original Banksy graffiti, which we did. At first we thought we had stumbled into the ghetto a little bit, but then after further exploration, we concluded it's a hip part of town and they prefer things that way. Eastern London is kind of vintage heaven. I did not spend a dime, which I have no idea how I managed. The pound is a lot more than the dollar and the vintage was not too cheap, not like in good ole' Springfield, Missouri. There is a Lomography store there, which also has the cutest little developing area. I'm really proud I didn't buy anything, especially here. We also went to London's first vintage department store and I was completely smitten. After, we browsed through a shop with literally hundreds of gorgeous leather weekend bags, but I did not see a single Samsonite. This surprised me a little bit, but it's probably good because lord knows I have enough.

Banksy dog. 

So much cool street art.


They had an entire polka dot section.

Yes, these are all vintage Burberry trenchcoats. At £100 each though, it was pretty easy to turn down.

Photobooth fun, haha, I obviously was not prepared for the first shot. 


  1. Ah! I keep seeing pictures from London! It looks so dreamy there!

  2. Oh my gosh, that street art is awesome!! So jealous!

  3. So much loveliness in this post! I especially love that bird!

  4. Wow that sounds like the most amazing place! I would have come back poor after leaving that store! Cute photo booth photos! The last one is my favorite.

    Love & Lollies... Jessa
