Yesterday I met up with 3 readers from 40+ style for a day of fun and shopping!

Lorraine, Elaine, Nathalie, Denton and myself started the day off in Startbucks at Soho and decided that we wanted to do a combination of second hand and retail shopping.


First stop was Scoop where I bought the silk layered top I wear in the pictures. This shop is full of great brands and if you are in the area, you should definitely check out the sales rack. I pointed Natalie to this thick cotton Helmut Lang jacket I tried on earlier. Only size L was left and unfortunately, it was slightly too big on her.



Next stop was &Other Stories. A sister brand of H&M that sells slightly more fancier things. They had a great selection of shoes and Elaine bought 2 pairs! She also bought some white pants. Both Natalie and myself snapped up a t-shirt with a geometric print.


From there we moved on to second hand store Housing Works where I found wide leg bell button white pants from Theory. I had been looking for these kinds of pants for a while to replace my old ones,  and these ones fit perfectly so that was a good score! Natalie worked away with a fabulous spotted jumper.

We then spotted a store, Le Sak Paris, where I spotted the most unique bags from brand Cleo & Patek at 90% off, so you will find one of these beauties on the site soon. Natalie got a black purse too.

Finally, Elaine added a skirt and and a very unique laced cardigan to her wardrobe while Natalie scored the perfect black pants.


Natalie: Tierra flats, Cleo & Patec Italy black bag, geometric tee from & Other Stories, black ankle pants from Club Monaco and Wallace, JCrew UK, polka dot sweater from consignment shop


Elaine: Moss green boots, black&white flats and white pants at &Other Things. Black lacey baseball jacket and floral skirt at Club Monaco. Necklace from Tierra

Only Lorraine missed out on purchasing anything but that was partly because she could not get the stunning pink coat she tried on yesterday in a Upper East Side resale store out of her head. She may still go back to buy it.

We had the most fabulous and fun day shopping and I’m so glad I got to connect with some of my amazing readers!
