You know how you pass that place which you find really intriguing but you just never take the time to stop and have a proper look? For me, that place used to be Carnaby Street. The Liberty store to be more exact. I’ve always thought it looked like some sort of Shakesperian bookstore but I was just too hyped up at the thought of all the great buys I was going to make in H&M.
But since then, something changed. Not in me, ’cause to be honest I still get high blood pressure whenever I’m close to Regent or Oxford street, but because of a friend. She was talking about how she loves the Pepe Jeans store on Carnaby Street and I was nodding like I usually do when I don’t know about something, and then when she asked me if I’ve ever been there and I said never she was like ‘Oh my god what’s wrong with you?!’. Therefore, we went to Carnaby Street on Saturday, the day for which I shall be forever grateful.
It was the first time I actually felt like I had a goal. I had a sudden revelation of what I wanted to do with my life. At that time in history, I realized that I wanted to be rich enough to fill my house and walk-in wardrobe with things from Liberty. Seriously people, why bother going to Harrods or Selfidges? Liberty is snob-chic all the way, as exclusive and unique as you can probably get for that price range.
What did I like about it? Well, more like love I’d say. The lifts were the coolest I’ve ever been in (paneled with vintage wood all over), the chocolate the best I can recall eating and the fashion was the most precious sight of any fabric-lover. I’m planning on going back next week with the holder of the credit card (aka mom) and trying my luck at any of the stuff I’ve put on my wish list.
