Lately, I've been flitting around like Miss Social Butterfly. So unlike me. It must be my lucky year seeing that I had the opportunity to meet many of my favorite bloggers. Last Saturday, Sue of Susie So So and I caught up and yakked on for 9 hours straight. Who knew 2 relatively introverted ladies had so much to talk about? All those pent up energy and thoughts dying to be released.

We met at Liberty and never truly stepped outside the parameters of its surroundings. That is, if you count Carnaby Street which was literally ten steps from the store's entrance. I had plans to check out cool restaurants but that was negated for the sake of convenience. Just in case you're wondering why I'm snapping away photos of flowers and herbs. I'm hoping to be inspired and become more creative with my floral arrangements by osmosis. And yes, I left London carrying a small pot of rosemary plant from Liberty. Believe it or not, I've been looking for a small rosemary plant for my window sill for the last 2 years and was beyond thrilled when I spied just the perfect size at the store.

We headed straight to the Etoile Isabel Marant section. Okay, I meant I did and then dragged poor Sue along. Obviously my obsession for Isabel Marant jackets hasn't waned one whit. See? I even managed to convince Sue to try out the elusive Etoile Isabel Marant Pearl blazer. I'm tempted. Very tempted. The flannel-wool material made it feel more like a cardigan. What do you think? Yay or nay?

The entire Oxford and Regent streets were lit up by these extravagant Christmas lighting. I couldn't resist sneaking in one last photo before we both boarded our trains in separate directions.

    1. Whether that worked out or not remains to be seen. Osmosis is my last chance at doing crafty stuff.

  5. I like the cut of Sue's coat and its warm burgundy is very nice! You obvuoisly had a good time together. A London week-end trip before Christmas, you're giving me an idea. Mon Chéri would probably like it too, just the two of us !

  6. Such fun!!! You guys are wearing my uniform. Adore that Pearl blazer! My Rag and Bone black one has a similar feel and the stretch makes it so easy to wear! I am giddy with anticipation to shop with you in London!!

  7. Love to see you & Sue together - two of my favourite bloggers!

    I always head straight to the Etoile Isabel Marant section when I'm in Liberty. I think the SAs already know me... it's a bit embarassing :)

    The pictures in this post are gorgeous. xx

    1. My pleasure! Had such a lovely time with you. Ack, it was my fault. Put all the wrong settings on the camera before handing it to you :(

  12. I think it's SO nice to meet up with blogger friends like this! Looks like you had a great day. The jacket is lovely but so is the price? :-)
    Sue looks wonderful - how can she be smaller than you? Can't believe it - she must be the same size as me :-)

    1. I know! I love feeling like I'm taller of the 2. Such a rare and exhilarating feeling (sorry, Sue!) seeing that I'm usually the midget in any group gatherings.

  13. I think it's so cool that you've been meeting up with fellow bloggers! How fun! Awesome that you talked endlessly and also had some fun trying on some clothes. You both look too cute, and I actually really like the blazer so I say yay! :)

    1. I balked at paying £35 but the one I bought was only £8. Cheaper than what I'd get at the Farmers market.

  16. Haha, I'd probably drag Sue to the Etoile section too! I love the blazer on you gals. Nice structured, classic look. I also like the addition of the pointy lapel and shoulder pads. That's so neat you and Sue were able to meet up! It looks like you've been able to hang out with several of your blogger friends lately. I wish I could say the same. Would love to be able to meet up with everyone in one big blogger meetup (preferably in France, please). ;)

  17. The blazer looks great on you, Marlene! What a wonderful day the both of you had. But I think my major love for this post would be the rosemary plant!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You both look great! I feel like Isabel Marant clothes have to be tried on to understand the appeal, looking at them on online shops I never see the fuss.

  19. Brilliant photo's! I'm glad the two of you finally met. Sue's blog always makes me laugh and I can see you two getting on like a house of fire.

  20. Sounds like a fun day - I wish I were there too! The festive decorations are so pretty (and so much believable when you are somewhere that is actually....cold for the holidays!). :-)

  22. Aww... This is so fun. I love that you two had a well deserved girls day:) You both look gorgeous!

    The pearl blazer is lovely- I'm seriously coveting it. The proportions and cut are perfection on both of you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Looks like you both had a wonderful day! I love girly shopping days like this, so nice! :)
    The blazer is a definite yay for me too! It fits you like a glove & the cut & mixture of structure/softness is so beautiful! Loving those knee high boots too, I've been after a similar pair for a while, but have yet to come across any I really love...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes to the blazer... a soft cardigan feeling, but structured looking statement.... no brainer :)

  25. Marlene I have that blazer and it is the BEST THING I EVER BOUGHT! Seriously, it's so worth the money. It's warm, it goes with everything, it's casual and smart and it is really flattering for some reason.

    Where are your boots from? I love them!

  26. I vote yes for the blazer! The cut is fantastic!
