I’m always looking for sources of inspiration and trying to visualize what I might like to conjure up. And that typically has me drooling over one British retailer or another! I don’t quite know what it is but I just find the British sensibility for merchandising extremely appealing (I know, insert gross generalization here). So many of the shops I come across have that homey but sophisticated feel. Thoughtfully curated without feeling contrived. Anyway, it certainly boosts my Anglophile nature and makes me long for a British accent. (But we all saw how that worked out for Madonna… so I’m steering clear of that move!)
This, Kids, is one of my favorite inspirations and a shop I’m dying to visit! Labour & Wait. Isn’t this just about perfect? It makes me want to plant roses and bake shortbread and drink tea and wear wellies while walking the corgi! I mean who wouldn’t relish going positively domestic with all these offerings for inspiration?! Seriously. But for the moment I’m afraid I’ll just have to [Labour &] Wait.
