London love

Thank you everyone for being so sweet about our job news - though I'm feeling guilty for calling London winters "un-fun"! There's so much to love in London...let us count thy ways...

Those street styles


The amazing V&A, always

these are great images for London, it's so easy to forget what is on your doorstep, I still haven't seen the grace kelly exhibition - on my todo list.

Only been to London once but this makes me want to go back :)

I'm only just hearing about your job news but must say that change is good! Be it a job, a new address or a weekend out of the month, change equals more fun and adventures (coming from a gal who considers finding the perfect mountain hiking boots as if it were like discovering the Holy Grail!).

Oh my goodness, dear! Your Fall photos in your last post looked SO beautiful! I'm in love with all the colors! Also, I love the little desserts you put up in this post. I would SO replace lunches with sweets if I were you. YUM!

One of my favorite places in all the world. I suppose my mother being from England is part of that. I can tell you, we don't get that varied street fashion here in Phoenix, not like that. So fun.

Inez said...

I really want to London!

We moved just before the Grace Kelly exhibit - I was totally bummed! Waterloo bridge views are so lovely and Karen Milllen dresses are so fun!

Jude said...

Thanks so much everyone for these super-sweet comments about London! :)

Bombay Beauty said...

Jude - now your comment on my blog makes sense! While it's true I never truly loved London, I did really come to like it a lot. I used to walk by Berdford Square every day:

They really add lungs and sanity to the city... And with all the Europeans and money flowing into the city has become so elegant. There's much to miss...

But then again New York is my love!

MarchMusings said...

You choose such evocative images that make the post fun to read. There's a lot to love in London but I think even a Londoner would agree to winters being 'un-fun'.
