Today my friend Aiesha text me to say that she will be attending a launch party of the East End Thrift stores new wing "The Assembly" - So I agreed to shoot through say a quick hello and be gone.........
Well that didn't work at all - They had the most amazing selection of vintage gems I have seen in a long time! It reminded me of the good old days of vintage shopping when it was a more personal and a less mass produced affair!
I spent a mint, but the pieces I picked up will last a life time and were in fantastic condition with good price points.
I met Myles the owner and his adorable sausage dog (who was sporting a bow tie no less)
I also met a refreshingly nice guy called Simon. They seemed like a nice little team. The staff were all super friendly, good looking and well dressed.
I picked up a velvet dress which makes me feel like Audrey Hepburn - I will be wearing it for my first Christmas in Italy.
A great versace-esque skirt.
An AMAZING leather high waisted skirt which I have been on the hunt for for YEARS. (£15.00 BARGAIN!!!)
And an amazing velvet and lace top which is just precious.
I can not sing the praises of this cute shop enough! It's based in a converted loft and you definitely feel like your in New 'York as apposed to the East End. Its all very Carrie. They had champagne canapes and goodie bags it was a nice affair!
If your ever in the Area you really should pay it a visit I am sure you wont be disappointed.
