End of week round-up

So after my earlier post this week which looked at the big skirt, I had a little day trip in London, where I clapped eyes on the most perfect big skirt of all, in Anthropologie. It's not on their website, but it is there in the flesh in store, and here it is in all its glory.

And a trip to the much lauded newly opened J.Crew was in order, where I was enchanted by the decorations - the gold balloons and the window streamers. I feel a Christmas craft session coming on.

Other highlights of the day included lunch at Comptoir Libanais, plus fabric shopping on the Goldhawk Road, where I scored this very pleasing neon ribbon.

And from the other end of the high street, I popped into everyone's favourite shop Wilkinson's, where I found this make your own cracker kit for the £3, complete with paper hats and jokes. 2013 has been an excellent year for "free with magazine" miniature gifts and my stash will be put to good use inside these crackers, tied up with my newly purchased neon ribbon. I'll add name labels and Christmas messages with my label maker.
