    We took a lovely long North London walk in the sun on Saturday. Here’s a little map of where we went, and Instagrammed-guide below. Kicked off with a hugenormous doorstop sourdough sandwich and tasty Nude flat white at the darling Maison D’Etre on Highbury Corner. From there we walked up Holloway Road, stopping at Ooh…

  • Copenhagen shopping

    July 3rd 2012 katie

    The perfect introduction to Danish style at the Dansk design shops on Istedgade: one for clothing and one for furniture and homewares. Both equally droolsome. Ooh la la. French industrial vintage heaven at No. 40 on Gammel Kongevej. Pretty reasonable pricing and the owner will ship bulky purchases to you. I’m not sure how I…

    April 24th 2012 katie

    Amara got in touch recently, asking if I’d like to review one of their products.

  • Shopping in San Fran

    December 16th 2011 katie

    We got pretty lucky with the area of SF we stayed in: it was near lots of lovely streets full of shops and restaurants, as well as being adjacent to Japantown and not too far from both the coast and downtown. A little map I drew above, and here are snaps of some of the…

    My favourite shop visit in SF had to be popping into the HQ of letterpress studio Hello Lucky and seeing their lovely team at work. We saw the huge vintage letterpress machines in action downstairs… …before heading upstairs to see the in-house design and customer service team at work. We were shown some of their…

  • Guide to… shopping for mid-century furniture

    October 29th 2011 katie

    I’m not sure if it’s cause or effect, but having this blog seems to mean I get asked advice a lot: restaurants, London goings-on, homewares and so on. Just this week I’ve been working back in Airside and was faced with a barrage of questions about where my living room chairs came from. So I…

  • Winter wedding wear

    October 9th 2011 katie

    I have an excuse to buy a new dress! Josh’s brother is getting married at the end of November (I designed the invitations for them), so I need a pretty cold-weather-appropriate dress. I’m hoping to find something in San Francisco, but here are a few backup options. I’m leaning towards the pretty grey number from…

  • Blitz London: a vintage department store

    September 29th 2011 katie

    When Blitz opened a few moths ago, I found the idea of a vintage department store – or ‘vintage lifestyle destination’ as they put it – a bit odd. But having finally visited last weekend, I think they’re really pulled the concept off. The ‘department store’ bit really just means the huge place is divided…
