East London Fashion

A Natural Flare


Originating from the Naval uniform in the early 19th century, The Flare went onto become one of the most adopted and popular style of trouser leg.

Popularised in denim it has become synonymous with the 1960's and 70's,, with cool, laid back culture. 

Its not hard to see why they are constantly coming back into fashion. Worn with heels or platforms they are leg lengthening, worn with sneakers they embrace an air of cool effortlessness. Not only do they look good but worn as high waisted jean and skimming the thigh they are one of the most comfortable styles of jeans to wear.

Which is why yet again I'v raided the back of my closet to pull out my old flared jeans and I'm back in them again - and yes I bought myself a Chopper bike. as the saying goes 'When in Rome...'

Princess May - Car Boot - East London

Visiting car-boots sales can be an addiction.

The hunt, the delving into the unknown, the find - almost a primeval instinct over comes you...

The car-boot at Prnicess May in Stoke Newington is not dusty, fusty or even fussy. Its cool. Its easy to flit between young designers, vintage clothing, plants perfect for urban gardening, left over jewellery samples and a plethitude of design books. All in all - its a fashion thing!

Pre 9am is £3 entry and after 9am it's 50p - and worth every penny. Plus if the hangover can withstand or requires sustenance there's a great hot sausage sandwich stall!
