Halloween in London

In Street fashion, Travel on November 2, 2012 at 2:06 am

I hope that you all were having a ball this Halloween! – I have accidentally spent Halloween in London.

How can somebody accidentally be in another city on just one day? By buying a flight ticket for the wrong dates! It happened to me the second time this year – this time I told myself to take advantage- London is the only place to be at Halloween –  and I was highly rewarded! I decided to shoot a London Halloween street style journal I want to share with you, because I thought many of the costumes were magnificent, fun and made with a lot of love for detail. Although I didn’t dress up – I had very little time arriving in London at 5pm and returning this morning at 7 am – I had so much fun, meeting up with an old friend and designer Pierre  and enjoying my second home town.

I personally found the kids the most scariest – I was amazed how gruesome they can act – and you? On my way home I was stopped by these gentlemen, who insisted on taking a photo with me. I could not refuse them and it was a good opportunity to show off the Carven top  with a  print inspired by the artist Hieronymus Bosch I was wearing. I hope I’ll be able to show you more of it, I think it is magnificent and Carven absolutely is a label we must put on the top of our favourite designers list. It’s been quite chilly and rainy so I threw my Reiss parka over it, I bought a few years ago here in London.

I was wearing: 
Carven  Bosch silk print tee
Reiss parka (loving this affordable leight weight parka)

Designer's remix cardi-coat

Vince riding pants

Andrea Garland shelley lip balm necklace

Ps: I will be announcing the winner for the October giveaway tomorrow – promised. You may tell I am having a little difficulties placing everything in time and tend to sometimes mix up things. But I’ll give you a hint: you will get a chance to win your own Andrea Garland shelley lip balm necklace – more of that tomorrow!

I hope you got a lot of treats,

    • Thank you for reading my blog. In fact this is one of my most precious posts because it is taken out of life. It shows how diverse we can be, but it is also beautiful to see friends, family and couples. I could have pointed it out more in my writing but sometimes things become more visible after a while. Many thanks again for your comment!

    And the theme totally to my taste

  7. […] What is a must do when you are in London for something like eight hours, where you also want to shoot a Halloween street style journal? […]
