We started off with lunch at the little Indian Cafe in the Northern Quarter, Al Faisal. I had lental dahl and veg curry 1/2 and 1/2 with a naan bread, and Jo had the lamb curry with Chapati. A steal at around £4 each!
We then hit the shops! I am not someone who buys tons of new stuff before my hols, but I did get a few bits that will be coming with me.....
Swedish Hasbeens and H&M Collaboration clogs - £34.99
I could not actually believe how much the Swedish Hasbeens are on their website - about £230 a pair = eek!
They are lovely and my fave colour.....but I'm glad I only paid £34.99 for them!
I then got this shell and coral print 50s style cotton sundress from Primark - £9.00
Close up on the top part - really like the petal bust type detailing
And the print - very summery, and not really seen one like this before
I also got this dress....also from Primark, £17
I saw this dress back in January in a magazine. My sister had cut it out for me and said "Clare, you HAVE to get this dress - its beautiful"..and it is! The only 'problem' is that it has been advertised to death in the UK press and everybody probably has one....but...I just love it.
And, no-one is going to have it in the US are they? (well, hopefully!)
When I get back, I'll put it away for a while and get it out again to wear when everyone else has tired of it!
And a close up..the fabric is such a nice soft, satin feel cotton, and its lined and puffs out a little on the skirt. I'll get a snap of me wearing it anyway :))
The day was concluded with a Chai Latte and slice of cake sat outside quirky cafe Oaklahoma in the sun...perfect!
By the way.....after a 400+ day break (oops!) I am back on Twitter again....follow me @dollycool
