Maybe It's Because I'm a Londoner - Comfort Station

The shop stopped me dead in my tracks. White Ropes and a massive stuffed White Owl in the window.

I stepped closer to the window to see displays that Vogue would have died for.

I stepped inside and the far wall was even better. Jewellery displayed in vintage books and the most divine bags with intricately carved wood handles. Everything in the shop is designed and made by Amy Anderson.

Is that not the best looking shop you have ever seen? The added bonus is that it is full of wonderful things. Look at the glass display cabinet suspended in the air.

I'm only sorry you couldn't have been there. But you can visit the Comfort Station website, it's every bit as beautiful as the shop and if you are in London you MUST go.

Just fabulous, I wonder why I never spot shops like this when I'm in London? The necklaces are gorgeous, I'm off to explore.

Well I can see I'm going to have to extend my next visit to London by several days - just to take in all these yummy delights! Of course my credit cards are still screaming from San Francisco, but a girl can look, right? :) xoxox
