I am probably one of the biggest lovers of shopping there is. I can't get enough. If I spy a Topshop or another shop I like I'm usually drawn in like a magnet... It's verging on an obsession. I live in London so there's shop after shop tempting me to come in and spend my dwindling bank balance, but there's one place I always end up and that's Carnaby Street. It is shopping heaven. I'm not talking all of the usual haunts we see all the time, a few, but mixed in are a few gems like Monki and Brandy Melville that you can only find in other countries around the globe!
It genuinely is a place I know and love, I forever bring my non-London based friends here and they always fall in love just like I do! So you can only imagine my excitement when I was invited down for a day of shopping with the gorgeous Yanin by Sisteris and Carnaby to get our shop on and tell you all a little bit about a very exciting evening event they've got coming up.
The outfit above was all bought on the day of our little shopping spree and I ended up falling in love with the area even more than I thought I already could (and I may have popped in again later to pick up a few more bits I spied that day, oops!). I actually picked up all these bits from places I already knew and loved (Monki for super cool clothes that you won't see elsewhere, Brandy Melville for amazing quality style staples, Office - well you all know Office and of course American Apparel because it's American Apparel, right?) but don't narrow yourself down to just these, there's so many more amazing stores including Dahlia and Lazy Oaf.
If you fancy heading down to Carnaby for a spree just like we did, then you NEED to head down on Thursday 28th of May from 5-9pm for their shopping party with Grazia magazine. I know, you're probably wondering, what on earth is a shopping party? But we're talking 20% off in the majority of stores, restaurants and bars in the area, free drinks, goody bags, a live photo shoot and so much more.
