There is something very special about holiday shopping: if you pay by card and you are not in your country of residence, then it doesn’t count. It is a bit like stuffing your face while on a plane, the calories don’t exist when you are in the sky. That said, I don’t really stuff my face on the plane, and I don’t generally go holiday shopping crazy.

I made an exception for Los Angeles though. As you may have gathered, I am completely head over heels in love with the city (oh really?!?) so any excuse to bring back a little bit of it to London is good enough for me. This time, I was forced to spend a certain amount on vintage clothes as I had a little budget kindly provided by Quiksilver Women, but I didn’t stop there… Oh no, I didn’t.
It would have been rude to leave all this stuff behind, all the shops I went to were so special and well curated. The best thing about this is that in total I can’t have spent more than £50.
