Shopping in Brighton is a smorgasbord of instant gratification.
With Delicacies round every corner.
I found my Vintage 501’s at Dirty Harrys on Sydney Road..great selection, impeccable service..and all 3 pairs (!) (one shorter to roll, one in dark navy *rather lush* and one long pair)..came to the grand sum of £35!
So I added in a pair of battered cowboy boots..
And a beautiful vintage silk kimono from Wolf and Gypsy (well worth a visit).
much cake and tea was had in celebration.
After which The Husband wanted to buy me this.
My favourite place for lunch or High Tea..not posh, just warm, genuine and eccentric.
With doughnuts the size of cannonballs. Who could resist?
And these catseye sunnies somehow just purred their way into my possession..
Just the perfect place, with the perfect company to gently put the world to rights.
Can I go again?
Laters, Kate x
My friend from uni lives in Brighton and wants me to visit her! She has told me of the vintage shops there! Looking forward to going after seeing this! Looks like a smashing day out!
It’s just the best place isn’t it. Glad you found the jeans….I gave up on finding the perfect pair years ago so well done you! Xx
AMAZING things<3 I never thought such cool stuff can be found in Brighton!!! Lovely!
Oh, next time can I come with you? xx
Great post, love the pictures – they make me want to go to Brighton now! Those T-shirts would suit me and my husband quite well too…X
I want to go there now! Looks fabulous! Hope you’ll do modelling shots of your Levi’s etc..:-)
Gorgeous pics. I love shopping in Brighton!
I need to plan a trip to Brighton!! It’s been too long! x
P.S. That kimono…uh-mazing.
Such a lovely tour of Brighton for those of us too far for a weekend getaway. I should return the favor and take a tour of Seattle for you. It’s a wonderful city to explore but I wonder how our vintage stores would compare? Next time I’m off the island I will do some rummaging around.
What a fabulous shopping extravaganza ! American jeans and cowboy boots, japanese kimono, now, you’re truly an international superstar ! Almond and carrot cakes for me, please (people laugh at me ’cause I live in the country of “haute pâtisserie” but my favorite treats are English and American desserts) ! xxxx
As always, I love your cozy and colorful photos! That top bag about Hermes made me laugh out loud!
Ohhh—how lovely to see Brighton vicariously through you! I have those boots in black! We call them Motorcycle Boots or Engineer Boots (or sh**t kickers). Nice job on the jeans and I really love that t-shirt for your husband — did they have a Women’s size for me? Or one that said, “Mind of an Athlete, body of a curvy dievca”? 🙂
Such a fun + delightful post and your closing words were totally sweet + touching…
“Just the perfect place, with the perfect company to gently put the world to rights.”
Could feel the deep sense of companionship + love you and hubby share and that to me is always très delightful!!!
*Sigh* He is one of my many blessings and he makes me laugh every day! xxxxxxx
Oh! Looks like you had a lovely time!
Look like you had a wonderful day out in Brighten. Next time gonna be a girl’s day out by the beach! X
You pictures are awesome, I will definitely be hitting The Mock Turtle for some tea and cake at some point!
Wow! I just love it all!
You did good girl! The desired jeans plus cake and tea sets that matched table cloths and wine and…you are a determined young lady. And with Gesiha lines and Wild West tan leather, who needs Hermes, I ask!
This has to be one of my favorite posts in the blogworld so far!
It looks like so much fun. It seems like you had a lovely day.
Awww, lovely pics, I want to go there!!! 😉 congrats of those501`s !
