maude and i did a day trip to brighton to see our friends claudia and florence – it was a windy day, not unexpected by the sea at this time of year, but still fun especially discovering new vintage dress shops; i loved hope and harlequin in sydney street in brighton – lots of unusual dresses , especially for parties and special occasions; next door is wolf and gypsy – another lovely shop, with a lot more affordable clothes, both for men and women. i bought this lovely 70’s scottish kilt very cheaply. starfish vintage clothing has more daywear, and is also a bit more affordable. so for a change to the usual shops, take a day trip to brighton and stroll through all the little streets.
we had lunch at silo, a restaurant wholly concerned with the environment and how to nourish our bodies respectfully. it was a very unusual menu, but tasty. apparently good for breakfast and tea and cakes.
