The Start of my London Life

 Finally in London! But I'm not quite sure how to get out of this housing complex. I fell asleep on the car ride home from the airport so I actually have no idea how to get to any main road. It was hard enough trying to figure out how to open the fridge door, seeing as to how EVERYTHING is on the opposite side. So I decide to go explore for a bit with hopes that I wont get lost while I wait for my cousins to come home from work and Uni.  So far so good considering I was practically sweating after the end of my journey. Its 8 degrees outside today so to me (compared to Canada) it feels like almost summer/spring weather...i can get used to this ;)

Take Off

Not the most stressful departure I've had to date but certainly top 5. Between the wheel on my suitcase breaking and being $200 over my weight limit, in the end it all worked out.

So its official! Just touched down in London Town...

8 Years of Hoarding

Naturally, I have yet to start packing for my big move. I have been avoiding this for so long but now its time to say goodbye. But really, how does one say goodbye to a walk-in closet, a chest full of sweaters, a bucket of scarves, two drawers of necklaces, a closet of jackets/coats, and 23 bags/purses, and 39 pairs of shoes?

A Token of Appreciation

I could not be more thankful to have this girl in my life. Areti Apatsidou you are one in a million and I hope you enjoy this jacket as much as I enjoyed making it for you!

A Few of My NYC Finds

But seriously... Could I have bought anymore fur items in NYC?
  NYC supplied me with enough fur items to last me until summer! 
Fur Fingerless Gloves: LF in Soho $29.95
Faux Fur Head Band: Shop on Canal St $10
Fox Fur Stole: Flea Market in Hells Kitchen $15
                                                  Vintage Hand Bag: Beacons Closet $34

$25 - Charlotte Russe
 $40 - Topshop$35 - Macy's$15 - Flea Market

 During the entire trip my friend insisted on refering to my striaghten hair look as 'hippy hair'. So just to top it off I had to purchase these vintage sunglasses from Beacons Closet. $12

My greatest discovery while shopping in Soho; L F has a site online that will ship anywhere in the word for only $10 shipping fee !!!!!


My last collection. Now that I am moving to London i wont be able to create many pieces due to the fact that i wont have my own studio space like i do here at home. So here they are finally.
