Carnaby is a great shopping destination for anyone who is intending on a trip into London. With it’s cute and quaint shops, Puma, American Apparel, The Kooples and many others all have a base there and they love getting involved in late night shopping events and giving their customers a personal and unique experience.
Along with a few other bloggers, I was invited to go into Carnaby and find the perfect Christmas outfit that I would wear on the day, while I shop or even on a night out.
As Christmas is a really busy day of running around for me and my husband, I found this great outfit that would double up as a great day to night look that is comfortable and stylish. I wanted to try a little print clashing here as I always wear prints but a lot of the time, I don’t wear them together.
When I was shopping around, it didn’t take me too long to start having inspiration for what outfit I wanted to go for. I knew I wanted some boots as they are great for the winter weather and I totally fell for these leather boots from Cheap Monday. With a chunky heel, these boots are really comfortable and even though they look high, they don’t feel like it when they are on. With a patent style that is chic and easy to wear, these are going to get loads of wear in the colder months ahead.
To match these boots, I headed straight over to Monki to find something kooky. I knew the brand would have some bargain pieces and this is when I discovered this amazing Cat blouse, paint skirt and fun fur coat. I thought these 3 pieces would be utterly amazing and even though the colours and prints did clash, I decided to wear them all together anyhow and I think the results are pretty cool!
To finish off my look, I choose this blush leather clutch and this really 80’s style velvet bow from American Apparel. I think people always go to American Apparel for their clothing but some of their accessories are just as good and I know I am going to carry this clutch around for a long time to come.
It was so much fun dressing myself for christmas and with a great venue like Carnaby, I think your shopping experience will be just as special and unique as mine was. With so many brands and shops to choose from, you are spoilt for choice and with great eateries and pubs in Carnaby also, you can easily refuel after a hard day of shopping too!
