Pride Parade and Mulberry

At the weekend, my husband and I went to London to see the finale of Viva Forever. So sad the show is closing because I thought it was a decent musical with some great highlights, but… I guess the press just wasn’t behind it. Bof.

Here’s my outfit for the day:

These shoes were a massive bargain, actually – somehow they ended up in the sale at ASOS for Β£67. They’d been in my saved list for ages so when I saw the price drop I ordered them right off. They’re ponyhair and I adore them – and they are surprisingly versatile even though at first glance they seem very outrageous. They’re also not at all my usual style – and in fact, a year ago I would have balked at anything animal print as being incredibly tacky – but hey… Things change!

Coincidentally, our trip was on the same day as the Pride Parade, so we stopped to watch it on Regents Street. It was awesome to be part of such an amazing demonstration, underneath the banners for the 60th anniversary of QEII’s coronation. How things have changed!

I also met this handsome chap, who totally knew he was hot stuff…

I LOVE Chihuahuas – my nan and mum used to breed them when I was little, so I spent my childhood surrounded by the critters. I’ll always have a soft spot for them.

By the end of the parade – which took about an hour and a half to filter past – I was plastered in stickers. It was great to be there to support the event, and I’m really glad we stopped to soak in the atmosphere.

Afterwards, I dragged my husband to Mulberry’s new flagship store on New Bond Street, to check out the sales.

I’m sure I’m not the only girl who lusts after a Mulberry to hang on my arm…

There were certainly plenty of goodies to choose from!

The design of the store was beautiful – of course, that was my official reason for visiting… Harumph…

When I came out, I was sure to send a photo to my fellow Mulberry-loving friend…

What was inside the bag, I hear you ask… It was leather protecting spray! Yes, those sweet shop assistants wrapped it up in one of their gorgeous bags for me. So, wrapped up in the giddy thrill and excitement, I forced my poor husband to purchase me a ‘gift’ from the sale – a Dog Zodiac bracelet, reduced from Β£40 to Β£20. I love it, I’ll post a picture later…

Next post will be all about our visit to Hawksmoor Air Street.
