The Electric

(Top: & Other Stories, Jeans: & Other Stories, Bag: Radley, Shoes: Mango)

I know it probably seems that I set aside a lot of time to float around London discovering sweet spots and hid dens gems- but it’s very rare I get afternoons just spent getting lost in the city. Okay, so perhaps not lost (never if you use CityMapper as much as yours truly) but solely being able to wander with no time constraints, plans or things to do. After Joe and I headed into London to shoot recently, we ended up with a few spare hours in between our screening of La La Land, and decide to traipse around Notting Hill, one of my favourite pockets in London.

Having worked and commuted to Westbourne Grove around four years ago, the grand side streets and hidden crescents of W11 hold a place dear in my heart. I remember finishing shifts at work to walk back to the tube, nosing through lit French windows and getting a glimpse into another world. It was the perfect escapism during long days in retail, and being able to go back and explore (including gems dotted around Portobello road) is always magical- even more so when an evening screening at The Electric is involved. So, after seeing La La Land, and walking back along a sleepy Portobello Road under a blanket of navy sky dotted with stars- I almost felt like I was in the film myself (minus the dulcet tones of course)…
