As usual, on a Sunday morning, I was lying in bed with my laptop solemnly perusing my emails. A message popped up from the dashing Nik Thakkar asking me what my plans were this fine Sunday. Nothing I responded, some domesticity, some catching up on work. Why, he said, join us at Rokit’s warehouse for an afternoon of dressing up, tea, cakes, fun and frolics. What ho! I thought, and I readily agreed.
North London is a terrible place. But you’d never think that a veritable treasure trove of vintage nonpareil was tucked away in the most terrible part of North London, Seven Sisters (closely followed by Wood Green, sorry Aleks).
What can I say? It was a wonderful charming time. From seeing my old friend Kit to meeting new bloggers, to tea cocktails, and recreating Jack Rabbit Slims Twist Contest dressed in oversized farmer overalls, to getting my nails did with pretty little hearts, to the personalised goody bag as well as being able to dress up in all the finery in that warehouse.
Thanks to Rokit for hosting us and apologies for making a mess and running around in the creepers without buying them, The Vintage Patisserie for the lovely tea party, and The Illustrated Nail for the amazing manicure.
