A day on Portobello Road…
One of the great things about living in Notting Hill is having Portobello Road right on my doorstep! I love browsing the vintage shops and markets to get inspiration for fashion and home design ideas. A few weeks back I went on a little explore with the fabulous Faye from Fashion Found to see what treasures we could find and we got a little snap happy with our cameras…
This is one of my favourite antique dealer shops called ‘last place on earth’ It’s filled with gorgeous mirrors, antique tea sets and shabby chic furniture. 305-307 Portobello Road
Great jewellery, bags and old magazines in the pop-up market stalls
This is the lovely Faye! She has her own amazing fashion blog; Fashion Hound
. She is a huge fan of vintage and charity shopping, is all about sustainable style and is full of brilliant fashion DIY ideas.
This beautiful coloured tiled wall underneath the Westway just screamed for a mini photo-shoot ;)
Faye loved these cat eyed pink sunnies and we were both very tempted to buy that cute Micky jumper!

I love Faye’s cool and often bohemian fashion sense. She’s great at mixing designer pieces with high street or vintage clothes to show off her individual style.
Jacket by Willow
Leopard print knit from Oxfam shop (only £3)
Cargoes from an RSPCA charity store in London (She paid only £1, what a bargain!)
Ring by YSL
Black leather converse (which she customised with her favourite quotes – what a great idea)
Lovely Morocan tea cups, funky colourful sneakers and printed tee’s!
Even though we were mainly browsing the vintage shops we couldn’t resist a visit to a shoe paradise….
156 Portobello Road
More shoe fabulousness at 202: Nicole Farhi where we stopped for a coffee to rest our feet and to admire shoes, designer clothes and the ever trendy crowd. This restaurant is one of my favourite weekend brunch stops in Notting Hill. I mean how can you not love a place that combines fashion and yummy food?

Thanks Miss Faye for a lovely day of exploring and fashion fun :)
