Jacket – Gerry Webber, Shirt – Vintage

There’s nothing more satisfying than leaving the house early and following the friend around while she does her chores, whining that I’m hungry and going to faint on the busstop and finally hearing her say FINE WE’LL GO EAT, WOMAN. But I only live to bug you, Elface.

The Stockpot in SoHo is a perfect British equivalent of a diner with homey food and simple but good (for a lack of a better adjective) drinks. Definitely check it out when you’re in London, especially good when you’ve spent all your money in American Apparel and Urban Outfitters that also sorta exist in your own country (but of course it seems better in a foreign country) and all you have is a fiver left in your pocket.

  1. nails = amazing

  2. yes, your nails ARE amazing.

    oh my goodness, that last sentence reminds me of my time in London…there’s H&M, French Connection, and Esprit in America but they’re not easy to find. So while everyone was in London my classmates went to ALL THE STORES, including the ones we had in the US! of course I bought only things I could buy in UK of course! Well…only things I can buy that don’t include shipping charges like magazines and such…um…yeah, just magazines.

    If I ever go to London again, I’ll definitely check out Stockpot!

  3. Wow! I love you nails~ What brand is the blue? I’ve been trying to find a nice matte blue in that shade for ages!
