As the only Scotland based member of the Style and Then Some team, I often find myself green with envy at some of the fun events my blogging counterparts get to attend regularly here in the Big Smoke (anything Kardashian related aside). However, for the entire month of November I am lucky enough to also be a resident of this multifaceted city and take full advantage of all the exciting goings on.
During a recent scan of Vogue’s website I began to realise just how good you Londoners have it sometimes. Due to severely insufficient funds of late, I had to make the devastating decision to discontinue my Vogue prescription, but always make sure to get my much needed fashion news fix from the magazine’s website to avoid feeling out the loop. It was there I came across some very interesting stories, one informing me of the Valentino exhibition taking place in Somerset House at the end of the month which pays homage to the Italian designer’s talent and an upcoming book signing with Grace Coddington, star of The September Issue film and American Vogue icon at Browns on the 22nd of November to celebrate the release of her memoir.
I don’t just have Vogue.com to thank for my recent realisations, I have also added to my London list of things to do that I must visit the Victoria and Albert museum for their Hollywood Costumes display, featuring outfits belonging to Judy Garland and even Darth Vader (gasp). I’m also yet to pop into Tate Britain to no doubt have a slightly immature chuckle to myself over the usually pretentious Turner Prize exhibition.
In conclusion, I have quite a lot to cram in before I depart but if you are based in London you of course don’t face quite the same limitations as me so don’t forget to take full advantage of what our capital has to offer right on your doorstep. Maybe I’ll see you around.
