it's cohen - UK fashion blog: shoreditch, east london, gap yah banter Smiths t-shirt: £10, Brighton. Kimbolton Skirt: £39, Jack Wills. Black Chelsea Boots: £60, Topshop. Wells Denim Jacket: £63, NW3 by Hobbs. Brown frame bag: £3, vintage. Rabbit necklace: Topshop (years old). Watch: gift, Rotary. Lipstick: Shade 3, MUA at Superdrug.

Watching last night's "The Secret History of Our Streets" on the BBC was quite an odd moment. Serendipitously seeing black and white images of historical interest whilst you are editing photos of the very same place may definitely be placed in the surreal category. Although I guess back then they lacked the Mawi shop and the "humour" of whoever lives in these apartments now.

I'm currently feeling a little worse for wear, with an aching stomach and head, but a hot chocolate, massive "2 Broke Girls" session and getting a decent amount of sleep is the only prescription I'm interested in. I hope you've all got fab plans for the weekend, whether it's busy or chill. I'm just hoping these very persistant April showers (seriously, it's July) don't rain on my parade.

    1. Do it! I've had to get mine completely resoled as I've worn them so much, although I may have to admit defeat as the leather's starting to wear away now... Proof that you can get a lot of wear out of them though! xx

    1. Says you, Julia! I've seen you rocking the peplum on twitter. Feeling much better now, although that may have a lot to do with the extreme amounts of caffeine I've been drinking recently, aha xx

    1. My mum keeps telling me to watch that, so I think I'll give it a go, thanks for the heads up! I have no idea, I'll assume it's "banter", but it amused me enough to turn my lens upwards.

  7. If you don't know, there's this blog called "Spitalfields Life", written by an anonymous blogger called "The Gentle Author" and everyday a new article is published about a person who lives in Spitalfields, and their life, and what it's like, and it's incredible. Seeing the people that make up just that little piece of London and the stories behind them is so inspiring everyday.

    1. That's so good! There's a new zine out that started last week called "Made in Shoreditch", I've only had time to flick through it, but it looks pretty good from what I've managed to read. Hope the hooga gig went well xx

  11. All I could think of was how annoying it would be to drop your clothes on the sidewalk and have to walk down ALL THOSE STAIRS to retrieve them.
    On a lighter note: love the denim jacket! (;
