On Sunday we ate lunch at UpMarket, which had a great assortment of ethnic food – Brazilian, Chinese, Ethiopian, and more, plus fresh-squeezed juices and crepes.
The Portobello Road market on Saturday had an amazing array of antiques – books, china, vintage clothes, old cameras, toys, telescopes, absolutely everything.
And finally, my purchases:
The earrings are from Monsoon, the necklace and dress are from the markets.
