Back in the day, this live wire place called Soho used to be my stomping ground. Since then I’ve moved to Stockholm, Los Angeles, the British countryside, Nice and Antibes in France.. phew! Now I’m back in London with a new outlook on life, new stomping grounds and with a little boy at my side. Soho belongs to my past!! Walking around the narrow maze like streets, this London village hasn’t changed much really. I instantly recognise the creative bohemian atmosphere that at one time shared the streets with businesses less savoury. Most of the cafes, and shops I used to go to have now gone, but nonetheless Soho is filled with lingering memories of my teenage years.
Yesterday I was invited to A London Fashion Week event, and walked through Soho on the way reliving memories. The invitation was a 21 Buttons x TBP Hangout in Covent Garden. Let’s just say it was a room full of cocktails, snacks, goodie bags, and Bloggers! I met many industry people and made new friends. A fun afternoon.
I decided last minute to wear this vintage pink turtleneck top I picked up at Traid , Notting Hill on sale for a ridiculous £2. I just love the pop of pink color. So on trend.
Sometimes the past brings with it good things. Memories, warm thoughts, a reflection as to who you are now in relation to the past, and oh … a vintage pink turtleneck!
