Lucy in Disguise/ Fashion Food

As I mentioned before, I was extremely eager to visit Lily Allen's new shop in London called Lucy in Disguise. If you don't already know, it's a clothing store where retired singer Lily Allen and her half sister Sarah Owens rent vintage designer clothing to people at a much cheaper price. So, as opposed to spending maybe even a thousand dollars on a designer dress, you'd be able to rent it from her shop for however long for a couple of hundred. Lily even had a reality TV series called  'From Riches To Rags' airing in the UK around the time she was setting up the store. 
The address directed me to King St in London, and as I drove up the street, to my surprise, the store was completely empty!



To my understanding, the address I got off of the internet was not the original address. This is going to be the newest location of the store, as the original one was forced to close down (for unknown reasons?) and they have not finished remodeling the new store. I was seriously disappointed, but the good news is, I'll be back to London soon because I signed up for FIT's study abroad program in London. So, Lucy in Disguise, we will meet again!


In other news, recently I haven't been into wearing too many accessories as I've been trying to figure out what type of jewelry I'm into exactly; but I've found a site that sells really cute accessories. 


Currently the accessories that are on sale are a few cute and simple ones, but they've got a new collection coming out soon (pictures above) and I'm really excited to see it. Judging by the sketches and such, there will some interesting pieces. Check out the website: http://fashionfood.weebly.com

My flight back to New York is in two days, so I'll be posting the rest of my pictures from my three-week stay in England soon.
