WEEKEND WANDERING: SOUTHBANK CHRISTMAS MARKET
Monday, 3 December 2012
This weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to get festive and head to Southbank's German Christmas market (having sworn against Winter Wonderland after spending a fortune last year on overprice rides, mulled wine and tacky stalls). This market does have its fair share of tacky stalls BUT entry is gloriously FREE, there is some lovely food on offer and regardless, wandering along the Southbank to the tune of Nat King Cole is guaranteed to make even the most hardened Grinch feel very, very Christmassy.
I wore a Selected Femme coat, Dorothy Perkins jeans, Isabel Marant trainers, Proenza Schouler PS1 and some ear muffs I picked up at the market because I was freezing.
MAHOOSIVE Christmas tree.
Manmade beach has its very own captain*, and he SALUTES! *I have a hunch he's not a Real Captain...
I LOOKED at stuff.
My boyfriend showed me the wonders of Gabriel's Wharf, the cutest little collection of shops and cafes...
...including a pop-up version of AMAZING shop Suck UK, which boasted such treasures as BOW TIES FOR DOGS.
And that was that.
